Kelly Wearstler Design Office

Nearly a month into the new year, and I’m finally settling into a new school routine. Part of my curriculum this quarter involves an incredible internship opportunity with Kelly Wearstler Interior Design!!!

I’m particularly excited to work with Kelly because her unique, fearless designs are pretty much considered a game changer in the industry. She’s well on her way to becoming an icon, and let’s be honest– is there really anyone better to learn from?

So, when I came across this gorgeous photo gallery on One Kings Lane of the utterly inspiring Kelly Wearstler office where I’m working, I thought it could be a great opportunity to give you all a peek into my new world, as of late.Kelly Wearstler on a table decorating a chandelierOkay, so I’ll be honest with you, Kelly usually isn’t swinging from chandeliers or dancing on table tops in the office…

Kelly’s projects often use some of the most innovative and spectacular finishes on the market today. From stones and marbles, to Venetian plasters and even straw marquetry, the sample library is like a designer’s candy store.

I’ve found it to be a great balance of necessary office functionality while still providing the inspirational surroundings that are essential in any designer’s world. I’ve even taken some notes to incorporate into my own home office.

What do you think? Does Kelly’s office space inspire you? How do you stay inspired in the workplace?
