hampton residence

 A fresh mix of metals and neutral palette make this kitchen an inviting place to cook, dine and gather. The industrial style pendants and linear fixture above the dining table add modern appeal.

The kitchen and dining area opens effortlessly into the living room. Bronze fixtures with clean lines add warmth and interest to the space.

Kate selected an eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories in tranquil tones for the airy living room.  Elegant ceiling molding frames the canopies of gilded lanterns overhead.

The rich tones and textures of the island and oversized hood stand out in this all-white kitchen. Classic bell lanterns add a subtle country-home feel.

KELLYWEARSTLER_PROFILE

DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT

KELLY WEARSTLER

With a signature aesthetic that seamlessly blends refined modernism with West Coast ease, Kelly Wearstler has revolutionized the meaning of modern American design. Well known for her triumphs in luxury hotel and residential design, Kelly’s ever-growing lifestyle brand boasts collections of furniture, lighting, rugs, fabrics, wall coverings, tiles, luxury bedding and home accessories.

We are thrilled to shine our spotlight on Kelly Wearstler this week and showcase a few of her instantly-iconic designs!
 

CUBIST

Kelly’s affinity for modernist art and architecture played a large part in her design of the Cubist series. The artful arrangement of three-dimensional sculptures and glass make these chandeliers striking in any setting.

LIAISON

Featuring a fractured glass technique unique to Kelly’s collection, the Liaison series channels her love of symmetry and soulful, sculptural form.

PRECISION

The Precision series features one of Kelly’s signature design elements: perforated metals. Light diffused through clouded glass creates a soft reflection against rich finishes, bringing a sense of depth to any space.

UTOPIA

The Utopia series is inspired by Kelly’s love of nature and the coastal landscape of Southern California. Hand-carved bronze and her signature fractured glass evoke a raw yet luxurious texture.
