What Interior Designer Kelly Wearstler Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked interior designer Kelly Wearstler, who just designed San Francisco market café La Bande, about the ear plugs, face spray, and detangling comb she can’t live without.

Our boys are in a band, so they have to practice once or twice a week. One of my sons also writes music. So I’ve always worn these earplugs when going to band practice, to protect my ears, but because I’m such a light sleeper, about three years ago, I started putting them in to go to bed, and now I sleep so much better. I’m super sensitive about my ears, but these are so soft and pliable that I barely feel them. I use them when traveling internationally to block out sound if I don’t want to put my headset on.

I found this at Erewhon like 15 years ago. It’s German and has been around for like 40 years. I’ll use the lip balm day and night because it’s all-natural and has this scent that’s — I don’t want to say it’s medicinal — but it smells like it’s working.

Mustela is really sentimental because the first time I ever used it was when I washed my boys with it when they were little. The smell reminds me of when they were babies. Now I use it on my body and my face — it’s not drying and it’s super gentle.
