I'm a complete Wearstler groupie. Anything this woman does makes me weak! I'll pass on the tree trunk mural, but the rest...SHAZAM! Yes please. My decor mantra for my apartment remodel is WWKWD?

WOW. That urn wallpaper would make me a little dizzy, but I'm drooling over the spiral staircase and all the geometric, art deco elements. YES! Aside from the wallpaper and bizarre mural, I love it.

<3 jen @ stuff jen did

Kelly's rooms are filled with a cacophony of confusing objects, the norm finding just one piece that I can tolerate. Physical musings required in order to come down to Earth afterwards...

I love a lot of her rooms. I don't think I'd want to live in all of them, but there's always something that makes me say "yess."

For example, those ballustrades. Love.

well done post, Raina, very clever. I'm a Wreastler fan although I hated nearly everything in Hue. Still, dying to her latest book due this fall. She stays ahead of the pack, that's for sure.

Ha, loved Xanadu (am I showing my age?) and love KW. Great parallels. Yes, WWKD? is a question I often ask myself! I definitely couldn't get away with what she does, and I certainly don't gush over every single thing she does, but her perspective is certainly singular.

I LOVED Xanadu so it explains much.
