Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks

Most of us up here are pretty big fans of (okay, some of us are completely obsessed with!) the one and only Kelly Wearstler. Her style is absolutely magnetic, both in fashion and interiors!

We have been so in love with the newest collection she did with Groundwords for Lee Jofa that we had to share some highlights!

Kelly Wearstler for Lee Jofa

A little about this collection:

"In her second collaboration with Groundworks, Kelly Wearstler has created a vibrant and inspiring fabric collection that combines her love for natural materials, graphic patterns and unique colors. The collection features organic and textural designs that are quietly elegant, as well as the bold prints that have become a Kelly Wearstler signature."

We love her go-to color palette. It's always really different, but it just plain works. That's why she's so good!

New from the Schu: Chroma Collection

One of Schumacher's Fall collections, Chroma, has fully captured our attention! A few new things, plus new twists on old favorites, make this collection outstanding! Remember the always popular Imperial Trellis pattern that was once only available in linen? That is now available as a cut velvet! Fabulous! Here are a few of our favorite patterns for your viewing pleasure...

"The Coolest Media Room on Earth!"

Have you seen the most recent issue of Delta Magazine?! It just hit stands last week and we are loving it! We particularly love the post entitled "The Coolest Media Room on Earth! OMG!" One of our favorite families, the Blanchard family, showed off their amazing media and exercise room.  It truly is one of the coolest we've ever seen! Lisa did a great job of making the space modern, yet liveable, don't you think?

What is your favorite part about this room? We love the color, the huge Dr. Pitt sectional (by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams), the Kelly Wearstler inspired bookshelf, all the Adler, the big lacquer mirrors in the exercise area.... Really, there is nothing about this room that we don't love!

Be sure to pick up your copy of the May/June issue of Delta at pretty much any bookstore around here! It's a great issue!

Designer Spotlight: Meagan Burks

[caption id="attachment_1046" align="alignright" width="150" caption="Meagan Burks"][/caption]

Meagan Burks, one of our amazing designers, is faced with design challenges on a regular basis (as most designers are!)  Where does she turn when she needs inspiration? Meagan has several designers, including Kelly Wearstler, Suzanne Kasler and Bobby McAlpine, whose styles really inspire her.  All of them have books that help refresh Meagan's sometimes depleated creativity. 

"First and foremost, Bobby McAlpine is an architect; and his new book, “The Home Within Us” is my favorite new architectural design book.  I have been an admirer of his architecture and interiors long before I knew he designed furniture.  The upholstery collection he designed for Lee Industries, one of our manufacturers, perfectly showcases his use of gracefully sculptural lines that are as timeless as they are unique."

In contrast to Bobby McAlpine, Meagan also finds inspiration from Kelly Wearstler.  Kelly Wearstler's HUE is a reminder of how to properly incorporate daring color into interior design.  As The New Yorker so eloquently put it, Kelly is "the presiding grande dame of West Coast interior design."

"You can always tell it’s a Kelly Wearstler room.  Her mix of pattern, color, and texture is so bold, but it always works.  What shows through in her interiors shows through in her textile designs."

Somewhere between the earthy, natural Bobby McAlpine and the bright, bold Kelly Wearstler falls Suzanne Kasler.  Her versatility is endless. 

"Suzanne Kasler is known for her classically inspired rooms, soothing palettes, and casual elegance.  Her lighting fixtures bring Southern charm, European sensibility, and a respect for architectural details to her interiors.  Her work is polished and refined, yet casual, relaxed and effortless"

Suzanne describes her own style as "a fresh mix of continental flavor and classic style, emphasizing light, scale, and architectural elements of space, creating collected interiors."   Her book, Inspired Interiors, beautifully showcases the mix that Suzanne is known for.
