“It’s like living on a boat sometimes; when the tide is in, the ocean comes right up underneath the house, and you can feel it move,” the designer says of her family’s weekend home.

Dolphins and seals regularly swim by the house. “We keep the living room doors open and you can hear the ocean, which is just so soothing and relaxing. You can decompress and let go; it’s a bit like heaven here.”

The living room combines vintage pieces such as the black chairs with Wearstler’s sculpture on the coffee table, from her home collection for Bergdorf Goodman, and contemporary art by Mark Hagen (left wall).

Wearstler wanted the family’s Malibu home to feel “organic — like everything in it has been picked up from the beach”.

The bedrooms’ pale, neutral textiles echo the colours and textures of the sand on the beach. The artwork on the wall is by Aubrey Penny.

She says the look and vibe of the house is inspired by Malibu. “If you look around you will see driftwood and the light fixtures that are reminiscent of seaweed.”

Wearstler says she and her husband, real estate developer Brad Korzen, along with their sons, Oliver and Elliott, decamp to the beach from their Beverly Hills home every Friday to do… well, not a lot.

“The perfect Malibu weekend day is waking up and spending time with my boys, taking our dogs out and surfing, and just being here.”

Her favourite items in the house are the artworks. “So much of it was found with my husband and while travelling so it has sentimental value.”

“We don’t really entertain here that much,” says Wearstler, adding that their 557-square-metre Malibu property is all about having some quality family time. “We snuggle and we watch movies and sports, we walk on the beach and we surf. This place is really about spending time together and relaxing.”
