Kit Kemp says ‘every room tells a story’ in new book


Firmdale Hotels’ co-owner and design director Kit Kemp has announced the release of her latest book, Every Room Tells a Story.

In the new book, published by Hardie Grant, Kemp presents her signature style and distinct approach to design, which has helped all 10 boutique hotels in the Firmdale portfolio to become such a success.

As Kemp says in the new book, every room tells a story, no matter how colourful and carefree it may appear.

In the pages of the book, Kemp takes readers through beautifully crafted rooms, giving insight into how she achieves the scale and detail of a room including the thought and inspiration behind her interiors and how everything comes together.

Every Room Tells a Story also looks at Kemp’s collaborations with artists and craftsmen from around the world; from a china collection with Wedgwood to fabric designs with Christopher Farr.

This is Kemp’s second book after A Living Space, and is available in the UK, USA and Australia, at all Firmdale Hotels, major bookshops and Amazon.
