Kelly Wearstler

I love Kelly Wearstler because she is always creating unique pieces that bring that special something to a space.  Not only does she have amazing taste, but her confidence also shows in her ability to take risks in her designs. She is able to combine couture fashion, jewelry, accessories and home designs into a harmonious style. These are some of my favorite pieces by   Kelly Wearstler.

Bamileke Feather Headdresses and Suzani Textiles

A few of my favorite things...

Feather Headdress -
I have used Bamileke Feather Headdresses as wall art in many of my design projects.  For me, they offer a refreshing break from framed art or canvases and can give a room that unexpected pop of color and texture. Handmade by the tribes in Cameroon – these headdresses are said to represent prosperity, freedom and beauty.  It is important to note that moths love to eat the feathers on these pieces. If you notices tiny little moths, fold up the headdress and put it in the freezer for a month or so. This should remedy the issue.  

Suzani Textiles 
Handcrafted in Uzbekistan - Known for their vibrant color and beautiful patterns - Suzani textiles can be used in numerous applications – Including pillows, bedspreads, upholstery for furniture, wall hangings, etc.

è bella designs

There are a handful of companies that I work with repeatedly because I love the quality and aesthetic of their products – è bella designs is a favorite on this list. The founder, Nicole Linton fuses contemporary themes with ancient Peruvian weaving techniques to create fabulous pillows, throws and rugs that will complement any interior.  Working with only natural fibers – primarily alpaca – is one of Nicole’s trademarks and is what allows her to create rich textures and vibrant colors that encapsulate her signature style.
