Long hailed as the signature designer of the West Coast, Kelly Wearstler became famous for her irreverent and bold designs for A-list clientele, the likes of which include Cameron Diaz, Gwen Stefani and the Viceroy Hotels. Throughout the years, the award-winning interiors maven has moved seamlessly through single-residence design, hotel design and even into furniture design–early 2016 saw the release of her exclusive label for London-based upscale department store Harrod’s.
In a departure from her colorful style, she created a more understated, monochromatic look for her latest venture: The Four Seasons Resort and Residences in Anguilla. Over the course of seven years, she painstakingly mulled over every detail–traveling to over 10 countries to source one-of-a-kind materials that would end up sprinkled all over the 35-acre property.
Though the pared-down and more architectural aesthetic is a departure from her original style, her use of mixed textures, natural materials and inspiring accents is ever-present, reminding guests they’re in a far-from-ordinary locale.
Reopened in fall 2016 after a previous life as the game-changing Viceroy, the Four Seasons Resort and Residences in Anguilla features 181 individual accommodations, which include oceanfront private villas and three restaurants and revamped gym and spa facilities in otherwise-undeveloped Barnes Bay. Rooms from $500.
