If you’ve ever visited one of the Firmdale Hotels designed and co-owned by Kit Kemp (along with her husband), you’ll know that Kemp’s magic touch is in making a room elegant and cosy, homely but definitely not twee. None of the rooms in any of Firmdale’s ten hotels (including two in New York) are the same but all are a riot of fabric, art and furniture that Kemp pulls together effortlessly. In Kemp’s latest book called Design Thread, she reveals the inspiration behind her creative process and the connections between the artisans, colours, patterns, textiles and art in these rooms. ‘I’m always looking for pieces that tell a unique story – maybe of a person or a time in history, of a particular handcrafted technique, or even just something with a combination of colour or pattern, or a found object re-purposed in an unusual way, that takes you unawares. These are the ‘design threads’ I like to weave throughout all the interiors I design.’
