 The Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica 

Interior designers can be a hit or a miss. But the really good ones can help turn your home into a slice of heaven. Of course, there might not be a bigger trend-setter than this interior design visionary. Meet Kelly Wearstler.

Kelly is the founder and principal of the award-winning Los Angeles-based firm Kelly Wearstler Interior Design. Some call her style "Cinematic Chic". Others call it "Mod-Baroque". Many people say she's recreated "Hollywood Glamour." Most of us admirers just say "Wow!" Her mixing of vintage and contemporary styles gives off a refreshing and invigorating look that is distinctly her own. She brings a unique, cinematic drama to each of her projects with a masterful command of bold textures and colors. Do yourself a favor and go visit the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica. It redefined what an uber chic, boutique hotel is all about. As soon as you step inside, you'll understand the meaning of great interior design.
