Kelly Wearstler Fabric
For her shop, Black and Spiro, interior designer Anna Spiro has chic pillows made-up in Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis, as seen above. Below, a stool of mine upholstered in Kelly Wearstler's Emerald Cut reversible woven, in the mink/ivory colorway.
Below, Imperial Trellis shown again, this time on an adorable little stool in a very classic living room photographed by Robbie Caponetto for Cottage Living.
Below, designer Steven Gambrel used Wearstler's Emerald Cut, in the lotus/ivory colorway, on a stool in an apartment featured in the April 2006 issue of Domino magazine.

It seems the genius of Kelly Wearstler's fabric and wallpaper designs is their versatility. Sometimes the word versatile suggests neutral or bland, but of course Wearstler's designs are nothing if not dramatic and glamorous. Yet her patterns and colorways are working in a wide array of interiors -- traditional and modern. Several of her designs appear to be heavily influenced by classic Asian architectural patterns, which is interesting because Asian motifs have been so popular for centuries in Western interiors.
Personally, I love the idea of using a Kelly Wearstler pattern on a bench or pillow, to add punch to a room. Not inexpensive but more attainable than wallpapering an entire room. Can't wait to see the Wearstler bed linens and tabletop items set to debut spring 2007.
