Beauty in the Details: Kit Kemp’s Way with Color

I won’t lie, I’m pretty fixated on Kit Kemp‘s interiors and I might have squealed when I saw them again in Lonny this month. The famed decorator and hotelier of Firmdale Hotels has a way with pattern and color that boggles my mind. I love how her house feels elegant and classic yet laid-back and comfortable all at once. Her use of bold patterns and color is somewhat executed with restraint and order. 
Many people say the key to great interiors is repetition and I tend to agree with that. Even though Kemp’s living room is totally whacky, it makes sense because there is repetition in the fabrics, the stripes, the furniture, the lamps… Everything is balanced and repeated, allowing for the quirkiness to shine. The same restraint also makes the room feel bigger and brighter than it actually is (see my thoughts on that on Damask & Dentelle). If you like the look as much as I do, shop it below!
