After hearing the news that Metropolitan Home would be the latest in a long string of shuttered shelter mags, I checked out the latest issue, which features “Kelly Wearstler’s Ultra-Glam Beach House.” Kelly Wearstler is a well-known designer and one of the judges on Bravo TV’s Top Design.
That funky French chandelier is made with “splayed copper branches that suggest seaweed.” (If you say so!)
There’s one in the dining room, too:
According to the magazine, the wallpaper in the bedroom is hand-painted “with lines as jagged as shattered slate.” The vintage headboard is bracketed with gilded spirals. On either side of the bed are pyramid-shaped lamps and vintage chairs that are “all about comfort.”
All I could think about was the time that Hildi glued pieces of straw to a poor homeowner’s walls on an episode of Trading Spaces.
