Kelly vs Jonathan

They both love color, eclectic vignettes, layered patterns, and over the top statement pieces but I think where Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler veer is that she's a tad more glamorous and he a bit more kitsch...
this afternoon I'm hoping to get in a bit of alone time to check out either the Estrella Spa at the Viceroy (designed by KW) or The Parker's PYSC (decor by Mr Adler)...Since I'm a true blue Kelly fan I'm leaning toward her Old Hollywood in the desert oasis but the Parker does look really fun....(perhaps I can convince the fam to splurge on breakfast at Norma's tomorrow and can see both?)
So are you more of a Kelly girl or an Adler aesthete?

photo vignettes hijacked from Odi et Amo (sorry, no time to compile my own - I'm off to Joshua Tree!)

and speaking of spa days...Miya's (of You + Me*) recipe for The Exchange seems a perfect fit - Chickpea Curry with Greens and Cardamom Ice Cream with Roasted Pears
Happy Thursday!

  1. I'm more of a Parker girl. We were just there two weeks ago for my sister's wedding!

  2. A Kelly girl for sure. Love the Viceroy!

  3. I am OBSESSED with the Parker BUT I would have to say that I am a Kelly girl... he design seems a bit more timeless to me. I feel like it might be harder to get tired of it... ALTHOUGH the PYSC is pretty freaking fab... sounds like you are having a blast... so happy for you guys!

    Have you been able to jump over to the ACE? totally funky but tons of soul. I love it so much.


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
