Kishani Perera’s aptly named design firm, fuse ID is the complete embodiment of modern eclectic style. Perera masterfully blends together a variety of inspired styles, some of which take root in different cultures. She has worked with many Hollywood celebrities including Kate Bosworth, Christine Taylor, Josh Duhamel, and her most famous client, Molly Sims, for whom she has famously designed two homes. I think my favorite thing about Perera’s work is the way that she seamlessly blends together various styles and adds unexpected touches. Although some of her work is downright eccentric (check out the Beverly Hills pied-a-terre in her portfolio), she seems very much in tune with her clients and knows how far to take things on each individual project. I find her work refreshing because it doesn’t feel stuffy and there isn’t an ounce of pretense in it. She uses bold colors, bends the rules, and adds unexpected surprises.
I love the use of paint here. She uses several complementary tones to add interest to the room.
The living room in the “Laurel Canyon Hideaway” feels a little more grown up than the last project. I love the chandeliers which draw your eye up to the gorgeous beamed ceiling. The patterned upholstery on the sofas is very cool.
The “Bel Air Estate” has the most formal look of the projects in Perera’s portfolio. I love that she juxtaposes the formality of the room with a playful pattern on the upholstery and more modern tripod lamps.
