I just received my copy of Domicilium Decoratus by Kelly Wearstler in the mail today. The book takes you on a colorful journey into her elaborate home of the Hillcrest Estate. Kelly Wearstler who is the owner of Los Angeles based architectural interior design firm KWID (Kelly Wearstler Interior Design) is best known for her hospitality designs of the Viceroy resorts, Maison 140 the Avalon Hotel, including many residential projects and commercial projects like the Trina Turks clothing stores, and just recently the BG restaurant and lounge in Manhattan's Bergdorf Goodman.
In Domicilium Decoratus, Kelly styles each shot so impressively that you can almost imagine you are sitting right on her sofa. The book is full of grass wallpaper on fourteen-foot ceilings, exotic and timeless antiques and vintage furnishings, which is a collection of her years of travel. There is also a more expensive Domicilium Decoratus version, which is a limited-edition book, and each copy hand signed by Kelly. -Vanessa (aka Turquoise)
