Lynn Von Kersting

[Images removed at the request of Darra Baker]

One designer I like and see work from time to time is California based designer Lynn Von Kersting. Her home has been featured in a couple of Chris Madden’s books, but there is little information about her on the web. At one time she owned (and perhaps still does) Indigo Seas in Los Angeles. I believe she and her husband also own The Ivy in L.A. If you have more information about her work or other photos, I’d love to hear from you.

I agree with Amy- love the first room. Thanks for sharing- I was not familiar with Von Kersting's work!

Just FYI, for anyone who is interested: there are many images of Von Kersting's home in Caroline Clifton Mogg's "Textile Style." Most are detail images and some have captions that mention Von Kersting but quite a few don't. The pictures are seriously lush!

I too looove Von Kersting's work. In fact, I was just doing a random google search on her to see if anything new had appeared on the web which is what let me to your site.
I don't know of anywhere new to offer you to view her work except the Chris Maddon Books. I first saw her work in a Traditional Home magazine last March. I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

Does anyone have an idea where Von Kersting's new book can be found? I adore her work and have held my breath that someday she might do a book. Now there is one but I can't find where to purchase it!! Help!! Does anyone know?? THanks.

Love Lynn Von Kersting's work too. I am looking for an old article one her work from the early 90's called "Ordering Up An Aura" that was in House Beautiful. Does anyone know where I can find a copy. I would order a back issue but I don't know the issue or the month. My blog is projectecoart.wordpress.com
Thanks!

Gosh, I'm so enjoying reading your blog! We have so much in common! I'm looking at my crystal votives right now and I love Lynn Von Kersting. I practically lived at Indigo Seas (and HollyHock) when I was in L.A. I'm from Houston. Check out my blog if you have the inclination.

I am a huge fan of Lynn von Kersting. I see her work fairly often in magazines and it is so distinctive that I recognize it even before I read the credits. She has recently published a book called "La Strada della Dolce Vita". It is a limited-edition, self published, 202 page book. It sells for $68 and is available only at her shop, Indigo Seas. You can call 310-550-8758 to order it.
