The Queen of Hollywood Regency 1

Kelly Wearstler who else! I've been seduced by her finely curated take on contemporary luxury. With a nod to the legends of the past William Haines, Dorothy Draper, Billy Baldwin and Tony Duquette Kelly Wearstler is the West Coast's "style guru". She's everywhere from the leading interior design publications to Top Design. To hell with the hype! I can't get enough.

M. Design

M. Design offers inspiration on a budget. The look is fun, funky and achievable. Punches of colour, the off beat, more than a dash of retro and just enough west coast glam. Molly Luetkemeyer is the driving force behind this LA design firm. Her rooms have been described as "random acts of retro love". She interned with Kelly Wearstler and it shows. Check out the inspiration wall in the second photo.

Jonathan Adler


Jonathan Adler is a design god. I recently picked up his book "My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living" and I cannot believe I did not buy it sooner. His style is so whimsical and colourful and just plain fabulous - it is exactly the style I love. This book has become my new bible. He has brilliant tips throughout the book, for example:

"Lacquer your front door orange.."
"Lemon yellow is the essence of crispness and should not be overlooked."
"Start a collection: ceramic animals, mannequin heads, other people's high school yearbooks."
"Buy rich ladies' scarves and make them into pillows."
"Put regal furniture in your bathroom. Stack your towels on a Louis chair upholstered in Pucci terrycloth, even if your bathroom is tiny."

The man is a genius. If you don't own that book, go out and buy it.

India Mahdavi


India Mahdavi is one cool chick. An architect and designer based in Paris, her work can be seen all over the world: New York, Mexico City, Hong Kong, London, Milan etc. Her style is incredible and so inspiring. And she appears to have a thing for white, which I love.
