Design is central to the Proper experience — and at the heart of it all is our ongoing partnership with Kelly Wearstler, the world-renowned designer whose immensely layered, unconventionally elevated, and wholly one-of-a-kind vision fills each of our spaces with a soulfully distinct sense of place.

About Kelly

Renowned for her visionary and sensorial rich spaces, Kelly Wearstler’s multifaceted work spans experiential residential, hospitality, commercial, and retail environments, alongside lifestyle product designs and brand collaborations. Embracing a wealth of materiality, color, and form—while intuitively juxtaposing influences both contemporary and vintage—Kelly’s interiors hold a deep reverence for history, place, and architecture while challenging the boundaries of design.

Kelly’s distinctly bold, eclectic take on elevated residential hotel living has included design and direction for Santa Monica Proper Hotel, Austin Proper Hotel, San Francisco Proper Hotel, Downtown L.A. Proper, Four Seasons Anguilla, Westfield Century City, high profile residential homes, and collaborations with luxury brands including, Tiffany & Co. Louis Vuitton, Ann Sacks, and Bergdorf Goodman.
