Overview

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.

    This book blew me away. So dynamic this woman's fabrics, interior design, and how she incorporates color and art. Especially art. Ms. Kemp's style is generally something that does not appeal to me, but I definitely can appreciate it. Especially when it is masterfully orchestrated by her. The fabrics, and the whismy of how she upholsters the feet of chairs and sofas. Her use of art in a space, and all that beautiful color. I loved this book. Even tho not how I would decorate my home, this book truly expresses interior design at its best. Great photos, great book format. A pleasure to read.
