With her impeccable taste, fearless technique, and discerning eye for color, shape, pattern, and texture, Kelly Wearstlers status as an internationally acclaimed interior designed is unparalleled. With buoyant ease, she will confidently cover walls in iconic graphics, select a captivating animal figure as a focal point, or add a lush expanse of contrasting color to an otherwise monochromatic space.

Hillcrest Estate is a tour de force, confirming Wearstlers place as an interior designer of consummate skill and singular flair.
