The cover was promising. And Wearstler's design work is modern and eye catching. She uses lots of sculpture as decorative accents, including giant stone heads, and classical nudes. And unique/bizarre art pieces. But after awhile, it all starts to look ridiculous. The rooms looked like retail showrooms, not homes. And she turned expensive art objects into clutter. I admire her for taking chances. But maybe her designs could be more people-friendly.
From magazine articles and just glimpses of how I've seen Kelly dress, I thought I would really like how her taste translates into a room... The book would be great for a Wearstler fan - it's pure photo spreads (with only a few pages of text in the entire weighty book!) divided by chapters of color - hence the title. So my rating is based on the content of her work, which I was surprised/disappointed by, I expected to love it: I thought I had picked up her earliest book from the 80s... but nope,...more

This book cracked my mind open and completely exploded my sensibilities. Bear with me as I gush openly when it comes to her- It is enough that her strokes are mind bogglingly bold and yet still have a soft homey edge.

This book is a portfolio of the work of the interior decorator, Kelly Wearstler. It is organized by hue (hence the title). The sections are: camellia, wisteria, vermillion; pyrite, alabaster, onyx; cerulean, tourmaline, peridot; jonquil, citrine, dahlia; and carnelian, kumquat, conch (no simple red, white and blue here!). The book is almost exclusively pictures of the work she has done (except for a brief interview at the beginning), and while the interiors are very inventive, they are too moder...more

Mostly pictures. The few words here are almost impossible to read because of the horrible typography. The photos are good, although some of the design choices are questionable. At least it's a pretty to look at and send back to the library.
I know she's great with interiors. I know she's beautiful. And talented. But this book just repeats Modern Glamour.
Modern is all very well, but living in this decor would give me nightmares.
