This week has been dedicated to ICFF 2017 and a particular attention has been given to the American design. But do you know who are the TOP American designers?
Kelly Wearstler is certainly one of the most requested professionists of the last 20 years. The New Yorker once called her “the presiding grande dame of West Coast interior design”.

With her unique aesthetic and approach to design she has attracted an enviable client base, mostly composed of celebrities, film and music industry stars (such as Gwen Stefany, Cameron Diaz and Stacey Snider).
Wearstler’s career in the design industry officially started in 1995, when she opened Kelly Wearstler Interior Design (Kwid, or KWID), her own firm. Since then, its Studio has grown from boutique interior design firm to global lifestyle brand.
Over the past two decades, Wearstler’s protracted reach as a designer has expanded exponentially, realising projects for boutiques, hotels and resorts – for example the properties owned by Kor Realty Group and the interiors of Avalon, a prestigious hotel in Beverly Hills.
She has been able to revolutionize the look, feel and meaning of modern American glamour. Her designs, consisting of a colorful mélange of materials, merge important historical reference points with contemporary influences. The harmony of masculine and feminine, classic and contemporary, high and low, is integral to the brand’s maverick sense of eclecticism and iconic style.
Take a look to the majestic interiors of the Hillcrest Residence: this home showcases Werstler’s love for graphic art, vintage lighting and playful surrealism.
She re-casted Residence’s modern elements in a classical setting, once again turning tradition on its proverbial ear to create a style that is all her own. Superlative!
