When I want to be inspired to be daring, I turn to Kelly Wearstler. Tapped for her bold, eclectic style for the Viceroy hotels, Wearstler combines prints, colors, and furniture styles in combinations that would look absolutely mad in the hands of a less skilled designer. But under her exacting eye, jarring pieces are tied together into spectacularly energetic rooms.
Ornate pieces are piled one on top of another, yet somehow the play of scale in patterns and unifying accent colors pull the design together into a rich, luxe canvas of glamour. We might not be bold enough to take our home design quite this far, but we might be inspired to adopt a few elements, like that gorgeous black-on-black wallpaper.
