"In her new book, 'Hue,' Los Angeles interior designer Kelly Wearstler doesn't shy away from bold decor. Try her tips to give your home a color boost." —Family Circle
"Wearstler's gotten credit for aiding the return of the Hollywood Regency style and that of the swinging seventies and eighties, and she's acquired a reputation for boldly going where other designers don't in her use of color, texture and pattern and in her juxtaposition of high and low, classic and modern—a Roman bust, for instance, impudently paired with a white shag rug." —Town & Country Magazine
"In her new book, 'Hue,' from AMMO Books, Hollywood glamour, neoclassical ornamentation, pattern and texture prove to be Wearstler signatures, but color, she writes 'is everything. Color evokes emotion, color is strong, sensual, luxurious and dramatic.'" —Los Angeles Times
"No other designer's work can be mistaken for Wearstler's fanciful wild-child interiors, which, in addition to private homes, include such influential hotels as the Viceroy Santa Monica and the Tides South Beach and the BG Restaurant at Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan. Brash, graphic, theatrical, and skillfully layered, her rooms blend echoes of everything from 1970s funk to '40s Hollywood into head-spinning, high-energy chic." —Elle Décor
