Get Beachy

Design icon Kelly Wearstler created this Malibu beach home for her and close family friends to veg out by the sea. She called on direct, literal images, materials, and surfaces to ensure the home would be reminiscent of the sea and of course using her inimitable individual style to create the unexpected mix. The floors are a bleached wood, as if they have been aged by the sun and topped with linen covered chair wrapped in twine. While Wearstler's style is not for everyone, she has been the leader in using organic fabrics and materials for accessories and furnishings that many of us have purchased in the last 5 years. Think of those monkey wood tables and pots, the surge of grasscloth and the oversized statement pieces of "jewelery" for your home.

The walls are wrapped in bamboo shoot wall cloth

The bathroom is encased in this rich stone material that looks like waves washing over the sand
