5.0 out of 5 stars The Star of Interior Design Jan. 31 2010
Format:Hardcover
Kelly Wearstler's new book Hue is spectacular. For anyone who loves interior design there is no one like her. Glamorous rooms, Hollywood chic, modern.....style at its best. Her mix of color, furniture styles and art objects is truly unique in the industry. Her new home Hillcrest Estates is inspirational!! Enjoy her new book it is a joy to view.

1.0 out of 5 stars major disappointment Jan. 13 2010
By Painted Seahorse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Wearstler's irreverent, colorful design, but this book was a serious letdown. For a tome titled "Hue", she was hardly creative with real color. The fabric cover itself is just white! The entire book is just 12 rooms or so shot from different angles to highlight a particular artifact in a particular color. Worst of all, she used the same books and artifacts over and over. The glamor shots of her and her sons were out of place and the spread of her jewelry and shoe collections were quite self-indulgent. While text in a design book is often superfluous, hers is limited to an "interview" at the beginning without any real discussion of the rooms presented. Don't waste your money on this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Skip this one Jan. 7 2010
By L. Goodenough - Published on Amazon.com

Not the best book for realistic inspiration for your next interior project.
Very eccentric for my taste and I like living outside of the creative box.

Buy this one after you have all the others on your list.

Nice photography.

The shots with Kelly & her boys seem too staged.

I'm going to return my copy. I don't think I'll ever feel the need to flip through it again.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Empress' New Clothes Dec 31 2009
By Chris Cross - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Yes, the book is certainly colorful. If that's all you're looking for, you could buy a Pantene color book. If you're looking for interiors that aren't patently ridiculous, look elsewhere. I'm amazed that Ms. Wearstler finds clients who buy off on her design schemes, as they seem designed for show, not living. But of course we should have been tipped off by the cover of the book that this particular tome is all about Kelly, not about real design. I have actually admired some of her work in the past, but I found nothing in this book that was remotely livable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Evolving beauty Jan. 5 2011
By light-years - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Kelly Wearstler is confident enough in her design ability that she tries to challenge herself with going in new directions pretty often. She has defintely proved with this book and her design work for Viceroys Anguilla and Snowmass that she is not a one-Hollywood Regency-trick pony. She has to be commended for not doing years of the same interiors.

This book is great as an inspiration piece. I have been overwhelmingly inspired by her work. That said, because Kelly's aesthetic is so layered and textured, it would have been great for her to talk about some of the specific treatments. For example, are all of the wallpapers custom? What was her inspiration for the color and design of the wallpapers? What was the overall feel or direction she was going for when designing her house? How did she select the artwork? Are the furniture pieces high and low or all high end (okay, so they are all high end)? It would be great to get inside her head a little bit.

But it seems like most people will probably never have the opportunity to examine her design process with any degree of satisfaction. And I say that only because Kelly Wearstler has turned into a major brand with product extensions all over the place. Brands don't like to be controversial and they don't like to reveal too much about themselves to keep the mystique and fantasy going. I could be wrong, just a feeling.

I mean, sure Kelly's in this book with her kids, but it is all about creating a fantasy of having it all: personal beauty, stunning interiors, great kids, a house that has movie star lineage, an awesome wardrobe, glamour and above all wealth. I think she's very smart and media savvy to do it; her books are basically brochures she gets paid for creating. However, I wish there could be a discussion of her work on a deeper level.

I do also wish that she would showcase more homes of people with wealth lesser than hers. Her average client is probably not as adventurous either I bet. I'm curious to see what that would look like, but maybe she is too busy to do a lot of residential because she has so many spinning plates?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Inspiration! Dec 4 2009
By JOSEPHINE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Kelly's book "Hue" is chocked full of beautiful photography of her work, which offers pages and pages of color, textural & interior inspiration. The pages are filled to the brim with photo's and no text, and are organized by color theme. This book is not a "how-to" book with decorating tips but rather a book filled with the brilliant inspiration and beauty of Kelly's work. Overall, it's a wonderful one to add to any library!
