Kelly Wearstler is starting to steer away from the Hollywood Glamor and is heading towards Avant Deco. Her Malibu beach house was featured in Metropolitan Home and the chunky blond wood palette is anything but typical for the well-known designer. What do you think about all of this? I know critics like to give her a hard time, but I love me some Old Hollywood and frankly could never get enough. But this is an interesting direction to say the least. Photographs by Francois Halard.
She shares this beach getaway with three other families so she wanted to make it child friendly but keep the decadence with a sense of rounded corners and sandy colors.
The front foyer features a vintage chair found in Miami atop of a Mansour Modern rug. The nautilus shell sculpture was a 1st Dibs find.
Bleached walnut stairs appear as stacked boxes. A brass railing adds the perfect compliment of shimmer.
The dining room table consists of a stone slab on a pedestal. The bucket chairs are vintage and the sideboard was custom made by Wearstler herself.
Hand painted wallpaper gives a sharp vibe to the bedroom. Vintage bed, Mansour Modern carpet, linens by Wearstler for Sferra, vintage chairs covered in Larsen fabric.
The bathroom vanity was also custom designed by Wearstler. The Bates and Bates polished-steel oval sink sits in a block of marble complimented by Paul Decorative Atlantis faucets.
The dressing room features and African sculpture on a chunky geometric table. an inspiration for some of Wearstler's hairstyles no doubt.
The entry hall.
Robert Kuo is one of my favorites. His rock-crystal ornament is really perfect for a space like this.
