Book Description

An acclaimed interior designer and author of the Los Angeles Times bestseller Modern Glamour, Kelly Wearstler presents sumptuous photographs of one of her most incredible design achievements yet -- her family home, the Hillcrest Estate

With her impeccable taste, fearless technique, and discerning eye for color, shape, pattern, and texture, Kelly Wearstler's status as an internationally acclaimed interior designed is unparalleled. With buoyant ease, she will confidently cover walls in iconic graphics, select a captivating animal figure as a focal point, or add a lush expanse of contrasting color to an otherwise monochromatic space. Combining grace and flawless skill, she can change a simple room into a work of art. Her home is no exception. Domicilium Decoratus reveals the most private and challenging undertaking of her career: her family's timeless, astonishingly designed residence.

Domicilium Decoratus is a limited-edition book, each copy hand signed by the author, and features breathtaking photography of Wearstler's most treasured design achievement. Readers' imaginations can wander through this personal haven -- from its fourteen-foot ceilings and windows, walls of glass and layers of warm, opulent color, to its witty details, sophisticated materials and finishes, and ornate collection of artifacts gathered from five continents over many years of travel. Hillcrest Estate is a tour de force, confirming Wearstler's place as an interior designer of consummate skill and singular flair. Domicilium Decoratus discloses her personal masterpiece -- a private and enchanting domestic hideaway.
