California designer Kelly Wearstler has cultivated a distinctly layered style with interiors that complement refined architecture using exquisite materials, stirring palettes of earthy tones, and dramatic sculptural furnishings, many sourced from her expertly curated gallery of collectible design. Her creative vision has also informed highly coveted collections for Farrow & Ball, Serax, The Rug Company, and more, as well as turned elevated hotels—such as the Proper locations in Austin, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and San Francisco—into design destinations.

As a discerning collector herself, Wearstler knows a thing or two about selecting just the right piece, seeking out special items that speak to one’s individual style. So Galerie looked to the mom-of-three for her suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts that are both considered and chic, perfect for the mom in your life.

“Similar to candles or incense, perfumes are a great Mother’s Day gift. Scents can be quite sentimental, instantly taking you back to a special moment or person. This Nymphaea Caerulea fragrance from Régime Des Fleurs is a personal favorite—each is made to order, adding a personal touch.”
