Description


Kelly Wearstler, one of the most irreverent and successful designers working today, continues to push boundaries with her inventive and opulent residential and commercial interiors.

Celebrated for pioneering and provocative interiors that guide global trends, Kelly Wearstler is known for her iconic designs of residences and boutique hotels. Pairing an exploration of materiality, color, and form with an intuitive juxtaposition of contemporary, vintage, architectural, and organic sensibilities, she has defined an aesthetic that is all her own. With a social media following that has grown to exceed two million and expansion into her own lines of furniture, lighting, and decor, hers is one of the most distinctive voices in the interiors world.

Here, in her first new book in four years, Wearstler takes a decidedly bold and minimalist approach to presenting her recent work, profiling seven of her latest and most striking residential and hospitality designs with immersive full-page photography and extraordinary detail. Wearstler’s unique eye and decisive touch are visible throughout, from a sleek and monochromatic home in Venice Beach to a richly textured beach house in Malibu and the dynamic new Proper hotels in Santa Monica and Austin, Texas. Insightful text from Dan Rubinstein guides readers through each space and the tactile furniture and materials that define the mood of each project.

Full of ideas, with beautiful images of many never-before-photographed interiors, this book is a must-have resource for other designers and homeowners looking for elegant design inspiration.

Praise For…


"Blessed with an innate sense of what works well together regardless of style or provenance, much-admired designer Kelly Wearstler has a knack for drawing the eye in with her bold, dazzling interiors. Her first new book in four years, Synchronicity, profiles eight of Wearstler’s projects, from a monochromatic Venice Beach home to a Malibu Beach house and more. It also highlights the dynamic interiors in the Proper hotels she designed in Santa Monica and Austin." —MODERN LUXURY INTERIORS 

"This beautifully illustrated volume contains striking residences—such as a contemporary art-filled 1940s gem that Wearstler revamped with materials like walnut, steel, and marble—as well as her interiors for Proper Hotels, including the Santa Monica outpost’s lobby, awash in weathered wood and patinated metal." —ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST

"Celebrated for her irreverent and provocative designs of residences and boutique hotels, Kelly Wearstler doesn’t follow trends as much as she jumpstarts them. Her first new book in four years, Kelly Wearstler: Synchronicity (Rizzoli), is a compendium of seven of her latest and most striking residential and hospitality designs, from a sleek and monochromatic home in Venice Beach to a richly textured beach house in Malibu as well as the dynamic Proper hotels in Santa Monica and Austin, Texas." —THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Her first new book in four years, it follows “Evocative Style,” “Rhapsody,” and “Hue.” Long gone are the days of pinning that limiting Hollywood Regency label on her. Pushing boundaries for decades, from designing the Proper hotels to a host of residential projects, Wearstler’s world view seamlessly combines big and bold with the details of texture and shape. " —MANSION GLOBAL

"Kelly Wearstler—a pioneer and provocateur with one of the most distinctive voices in the interiors world—presents her recent work, profiling seven of her latest and most striking residential and hospitality designs." —MOFFLY MEDIA

"Kelly’s first new book in four years profiles seven of her latest and most striking residential and hospitality designs." —HOUSE & HOME

"Kelly Wearstler is known across the world for her evocative, theatrical style, mixing vintage furniture and silhouettes with contemporary color and verve. Synchronicity profiles seven of Wearstler's most eye-catching residential and hospitality designs with never-before-seen photography and exclusive commentary." —VERANDA

"Wearstler guides her legions of fans through seven recent projects, each thoroughly explored by design editor Dan Rubinstein. From a Los Angeles home filled with art by the likes of Hank Willis Thomas to the hybrid 1920s-contemporary build of the Santa Monica Proper Hotel, the tome uses full-page photography to capture even the smallest details." —CULTURED

"Few interior designers working today enjoy as much name recognition as Kelly Wearstler. Even for those who can't tell a sconce from a suspender, the South Carolina native's sumptuous Slow Cal–inflected aesthetic is easy to spot, thanks to its surprise-and-delight intermixing of color, texture, and materiality along with an unwavering sense of place. Who else would think to pair, for instance, a vivid Mexican folk art mural with pink-and-white checkerboard tile floors (the Downtown L.A. Proper hotel) or burnished brass countertops with emerald-green cabinetry (Cameron Diaz's Greenwich Village pad)?" —CONDE NAST TRAVELER
