KELLY WEARSTLER'S BOOK ON STYLE: Anyone who complains that a lot of hotels look a whole lot of the same (we don't buy into that ourselves, but yes, sameness can run amuck in certain corners if allowed) cannot say that about a property overseen by designer Kelly Wearstler.
THE VICEROY SANTA MONICA, AVALON, THE VICEROY PALM SPRINGS... Just to name a few of the hotels she has Hollywood-Regency'd and be-fabric'd and be-fabulous'd in recent years. The Tides South Beach, with all its shades of butter and gold, comes to mind. You know when you are sitting in a well-Wearstler'd room, and if you'd like to know more about her style, you can pick up "Hue." And if you're in the neighborhood, she's signing it at Trina Turk LA on Thursday, Aug. 19.
