Kelly Wearstler lists Malibu beach house

Dumplings, do you remember decorating diva Kelly Wearstler's Mailbu beach home featured in the November issue of Metropolitan Home (RIP)? Well, she's put it on the market for $21.9 million. The strange thing is Wearstler and her hotel developer husband aren't the only owners of the property. They share it with three other families (???).

The house was purchased from Janet Jackson (!!!) in August of 2004 for $8.5 million and completely renovated. The 6000 sq ft house sits on Carbon beach and features 6 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, a media room, and a chef's kitchen. The listing includes photos of rooms not seen in the Metropolitan Home article.

The Real Estalker says "mausoleum chic" and I could not agree more - ick.

Karly is going to pee in her britches when she sees this... she almost bought a creepy mother/child bust just like the one over the last bed.

I still love this house so much.

my favorite and my best said...

her interiors suck my balls. ok, not all of them...i mean i am not mad at an entire kitchen made of marble. but most of the time apart from the crazy pills i KNOW she is taking, i think she has no idea how to make a space personal.

OK, I thought I was the only one creeped out by the bust and the all marble that is ok b/c i am a cold corpse kitchen.

I remember reading that the house was owned by several couples. Unusual.

four words:

grass skirt light fixture.

two more words:

fire hazard.

and three letters:

wtf?

I love everything about this house except what sherri has appropriately dubbed the grass skirt light fixture.

If mausoleum chic is wrong I don't want to be right!

still scratching my head...three other families?

susieq said...

I remember reading that several couples owned the house. Wonder if it was just for investment/photo shoot purposes?

Kate said...

Thats a rather expensive time share, but then I'm tight like that.
The bust thingy is creepy.

Pieter said...

The light fitting is a 1960's french chandelier made of copper (not grass). She may be crazy, but she isn't stupid. Though not everyone's taste, she has oodles of style and is extremely bold! I love everything she does!

Pieter - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

Pieter said...

As the self appointed defender of all things Kelly Wearstler (except her Top Design alter ego—that I cannot defend) it's a pleasure to be here! Thanks for the welcome!

I don't get this house at all!?

The Down East Dilettante said...

Okay, I consider myself fairly design and decor open-minded, but I also consider myself fairly design educated.

Tell me again why I'm supposed to like her work?

Is it just because she's on teevee?

Leigh Chandler said...

The ONLY thing I like about this house is the veiw. I just don't get her fanatic appeal. Just sayin...

nicole said...

I hate the first picture, but at least its interesting to look at.

I think the kitchen is beautiful.

And I dont mind the bed, although I hate the rest of that room. Those heads are gross.

SO STRANGE that she shares a house. That they are selling for 21 million. Dont get it. At all.

nicole said...

Interesting that I like the rooms Met Home didnt choose better than the ones they did. Maybe why they are no more?

drollgirl said...

ugh. it is that taupe syndrome all over again.

Designers' Brew said...

I. LOVE. IT. That kitchen = no words.

But yes, the hula skirt fixtures need to be taken down and burned. What a misstep.
