It's hard to believe that this was just a cottage-style home before it got the Wearstler treatmemt. No surface was left untouched. Every floor, every ceiling, every railing, molding and wall was made into a work of art. I'm obsessed with the wallpaper, the custom made brass railing, the marble floor and the runner in the staircase.
Who (other than Wearstler) could create such incredible marble patterned floors? Everything from the doors details to the brass railings and the dark stair runner blends perfectly together.
The sheathed ceiling is a striking contrast against the purple rug and chandeliers. The glossy black is repeated throughout. I'm crazy about the table, the chairs and the buffet. I could honestly do an entire PHD thesis on this dining room alone.
This is an aspect of KW's design that I never particularly loved: the curved tire-looking sofas. That being said, I can't deny that it works in the space. I love the floors the painting on the far right, the art deco chairs and the draped table.
I'm not normally a fan of brown but in this case, I love every single shade. The wood against the leather and wool is striking and there is just the right amount to black, cream and gold to balance it all out.
Don't even get me started on this wallpaper in the hallway. I'm so completely in awe of it, as I am with every single artifact in this vignette. Where does she find it all is what I want to know. In fact, I'd love to get inside KW's brain for a day. Is that weird?
The master bath's been the most harshly critiqued around the blogosphere. Personally, I think the bath looks a little narrow and I'm not sure I would've picked a simple bamboo shade for the window but I'm amazed at the onyx walls and the marble and onyx geometric floors.
I'd take this guest bedroom any day, though it's not my favorite. I'm obsessed with the bedside tables and I'm digging the crazy wall art.
I'm practically dying over that entire kitchen. Seriously, no one does glam kitchens like KW. Black marble and cerused oak: hello? In fact, I think cerused oak's officially become my new favorite wood.
Gahhhhhhhh. I'll be dreaming about this De Gournay wallpaper for the next few years, guaranteed. Mixed with the glossy black floors, ceiling and trims, and the lovely cream shades on the rug, chairs and gorgeous lighting fixtures, it's pretty much perfection. And can we talk about that chrome coffee table?
As far as this last room is concerned, I may as well die and go to decorator heaven now because I'll never ever find anything better. Ever. Please, the custom made brass staircase, the perfect shade of green walls, double-story bookcases flanked with brass art lighting...
We could honestly go right in there and film a modern day Beauty and the Beast. Sighhhhhh. That desk is crazy perfection. KW tore through the ceiling to a second story bedroom to create this room. Take note kids. This could come useful if you're ever gifted with a spade second story bedroom.
Last but not least, the picture that started it all: I give up on life. this is too good. Nothing will ever compare. Throw in your hats people. This is it. We can all die happy.
So, love it? Am I just cray cray? Losing it perhaps?
