BOOK TO BUY: A Living Space by Kit Kemp

A Living Space by Kit Kemp

When we were in New York last time, we stayed at several hotels around Manhattan as well as in the Hamptons, but the Crosby Street Hotel in SoHo was probably our favourite – it was warm and inviting, had a fantastic location in the very heart of SoHo, and the decor was fascinating…

I decided then and there that I wanted to be like Kit Kemp, the owner (with her husband, Tim Kemp) and designer of their seven Firmdale Hotel abodes in London and New York.

Crosby Street Hotel New York

Each hotel room is individually furnished by Kit, based on international travels, and they are an array of colours, textures and patterns. See photos from our visit to the Crosby Street Hotel in New York via Facebook, on our Luscious hotels board on Pinterest.

Here’s the official blurb for Kit’s book:

Inspiring interiors that have a personal, handcrafted feel. This lavishly photographed interiors book shows how to leave behind design “rules” to create truly beautiful, original interiors.

For more than twenty years, Kit Kemp has been at the forefront of the international design community, with her signature style that mixes contemporary elements with antiques and junk-shop finds, luxurious fabrics with printed wallpapers, and hand-finished detailing with collections of simple objects that create impact. She avoids taking design too seriously, playing with scale, color and pattern to create very personal, handcrafted spaces.

Alongside the stunning images of room sets and detailed close-ups will be the inspiration behind Kit’s work and her tips for creating your own version of her style at home. Interiors are meant for living in, and the key is to create a space that is comfortable and beautiful and reflects who you really are.

For inspiration for your home decor, enjoy these photos from the Kemp’s own home, and some of their hotel interiors:
