All the Best LIST Updates
Kelly Wearstler has teamed with SFERRA, one of my favorite companies, to launch a new collection of soft home goods. The collection is now available online. I recently had a chance to catch up with the talented Ms. Wearstler to talk about the collaboration.
How would you describe the Kelly Wearstler/SFERRA Collection?
I’m so thrilled with how my debut collection with SFERRA turned out – it’s exactly as I envisioned. The designs are organic with couture detailing, such as hand embroidery, needlepoint, appliqué and beading. I really enjoyed being able to play with different techniques that I had always wanted to try. The color palette is soft and subtle to emphasize the patterns.
What have you enjoyed most about your collaboration with SFERRA?
The SFERRA team, especially Paul Hooker and Aaron Stewart, have been so supportive of my vision for the collection. It’s truly been a pleasure working with them on my first soft home collection.
What are the trademarks of your personal style?
In general, I like things that are unexpected, so when it comes to my personal style, that means bold jewelry and accessories – hats, gloves and tights – because it throws things off and adds visual interest. I have the same mantra when I design interiors. It’s always good to toss in an element of surprise to shake things up a bit.
In your opinion, what makes the perfect bed and bedding?
Luxurious fabrics and unfussy details are essential components of the perfect bed.
What accessories do you consider a must for any room?
Anything metallic. The reflective quality helps to bring a room to another level.
