Interior designer Kelly Wearstler is all about glamour, as seen in the new Viceroy hotel in Anguilla and her new china line for Pickard. She also creates stylish home kitchens. Wearstler recently purchased the 1920s Beverly Hills estate of James Bond producer Albert Broccoli and gave the kitchen an old-Hollywood feel, with period touches like vintage Art Deco stools. The space is fantastic for parties, says her friend Lulu Powers, an L.A. caterer who prepares healthy, delicious and (of course) great-looking dishes there, like a tangy pomegranate-glazed salmon with Armenian rice.
Kelly Wearstler's Tips for a Glamorous Kitchen
Wearstler renovated the kitchen with floor-to-ceiling cabinets along the walls, which maximizes storage but leaves no room for a counter. So she added two four-foot-wide islands, using one for prep and cleanup and the other for serving.
