Kelly Wearstler’s take on a project like this is not new since she has had many high-profile commercial clients, including The Viceroy, Bergdorf Goodman, and The Four Seasons hotel. More specifically, she has worked with Proper Hotels & Residences, where she designed those in San Francisco and Hollywood.
For this project, the designer took inspiration from the city of Austin itself; a place she’s long enjoyed and appreciated for its cultural significance and laid-back lifestyle. With that in mind, she created a setting where her design identity mixes perfectly with the history of Austin, which translates into a concept of casual luxury.
