Her Bio if interested:
Recognized among design aficionados and contemporary culture devotees for her enchanting take on interiors and the luxury lifestyle, Kelly Wearstler has fine-tuned contemporary notions of elegance since establishing her firm, Kelly Wearstler Inc., a decade ago. She returns to sit on the panel of judges for the second season of Top Design.
Dubbed one of the design world's top tastemakers by House & Garden and honored among House Beautiful's best designers for seven years running, Wearstler has re-imagined the visual landscape on a diverse array of award-winning projects. In addition to international resorts and hotels throughout the United States, the Caribbean and Mexico, she has designed select offices, restaurants, retail environments and residences that are frequently profiled in travel, lifestyle and magnetize design cognoscenti around the world. Currently, Wearstler is preparing the lifestyle and design experiences for six hotel residence projects, which are underway in Miami, Anguilla, Mexico's Riviera Maya and Vietnam.
Wearstler's debut monograph Modern Glamour: The Art of Unexpected Style was a Los Angeles Times bestseller. A follow-up book for Regan Books, titled Domicilium Decoratus, featuring the designer's former Beverly Hills residence, was initially published in 2005 as a deluxe, limited-edition folio; a general edition followed in 2006. Several additional volumes on design and lifestyle are underway for publication as the decade continues. A regular contributor on living with style to such fashion bibles as Harper's Bazaar, Elle and W, Wearstler was named one of the best dressed of 2007 by Vogue.
As the namesake and creator of several product lines, Wearstler enjoys sharing her signature style with design professionals and discriminating retail shoppers. Fall 2007 marked the opening of the Kelly Wearstler boutique at Bergdorf Goodman. The boutique showcases a range of decorative home accessories designed by Wearstler exclusively for the legendary store. An extensive collection of handmade carpets for The Rug Company debuted in Spring 2008, with a fabric and trim collection for Groundworks at Lee Jofa to follow in Summer/Fall 2008. Wearstler will also design a book of fine wallcoverings with famed hand printer Cole & Son, set to debut in early 2009. Decorative pillows, throws, table linens, bedding, tabletop and more will soon join this portfolio of home products.
A native of South Carolina, Wearstler received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art. She resides in Beverly Hills, California.
