Kelly Wearstler, You’re My Hero.

28 Jun

As of late, coffee table books have become my new household obsession. They’re large, glossy, intriguing and make for some awesome decorating elements. More importantly, with the amount of pictures seriously exceeding the amount text you can let your imagination run wild and get lost in the visual element. For months I have been lusting after Kelly Wearstler’s most recent contribution to the wonderful world of books: Hue (following the smashing success of Modern Glamour and Domicilium Decoratus). For less than $50 from the San Luis Obispo downtown Barnes and Noble, I am not sure why in the world I tortured myself for so long. Nevertheless, the coveted pictorial has made its way into my arms and I could not be more thrilled.

What’s to love: Ms. Wearstler has painstakingly dubbed every single color known to man and recorded them in the first two pages of her book…in alphabetical order mind you. Abalone, Flint, Hummingbird, Maraschino, Pollen, Saddle, Zinc… all conveying a personal visual interpretation and evoking the senses.

Look for: The fantastic color combination-themed chapters and decorating elements (many of which have since become available for purchase from here, here and here).

Personal favorite: The first chapter titled Camellia, Wisteria, Vermillion. The decor is everything I want my abode to educe and everything my husband doesn’t.
