Kemble Interiors latest

We all know and love designer Celerie Kemble - she's been featured in tons of magazines and Kemble Interior's work is internationally known. I featured this firm back in 2007 and thought it was time for a bit of an update. They're still about spaces on the traditional side but with a bit of whimsy and perfect doses of pattern and colour. The dining nook above would make a perfect sit-down-and-blog-with-a-cup-of-tea-and-a-plate-full-of-cookies space.

So much to love here! The hutch is wonderful - love the fabric on the bottom drawers. I think the chair to its left is marvelous too. The Far Eastern flair over the day bed is inspirational! The little breakfast nook is great with its color palette and those bamboo-like chairs. Only one room here did not capture my fancy - the one with the blue wallpaper. Actually, the furniture is appealing, but the size of that humongous print on the wallpaper and that chunky overwhelming mirror give the room a feel of a miniature doll house. You know how it is nearly impossible to get all miniatures to scale in one space? That is how this mirror makes the room feel. However, the rest of the rooms/designs/concepts/colors deserve loads of praise!

So much calculated symmetry feels a little forced, at least to me. And the whole Palm Beach, Upper East Side, granny-chic look feels so much less relaxed than some of the other beautiful spaces you feature ! This look is really popular around the NY suburbs, so for me it's fun to see homes in Spain and Italy, Sweden and Australia.... but I guess it's good to feature a little of everything.

Beautiful! From the pop of that yellow wall in the first photo to the first bedroom with the accents of purple and turquoise... just gorgeous.

Wow. That light blue hutch and the bedroom with purple bench are just beyond divine. The bedroom has so much beautiful design going on while still feeling calm and tranquil.

I love Celerie Kimble's work. The chunky mirrow against that amazing wallpaper is to die for. Great post.

The bamboo kitchen chairs are easily my favorite feature out of all of these pictures. All of these, though, have such fantastic natural features incorporated! Stunning work.

Oh I love the white + yellow room from the top photo. Just so summery fresh!

When I first browsed these rooms I didn't like them at all, too cluttered and almost retro but after another look I was converted.
Nice to see some colour as opposed to beige brown and red. These are happy spaces.

I absolutely love the first photo. I want to be there, cozy up with a cup of coffee, and be happy with life. Haha

I love the last photo on the right---the re-done settee and arm chair, which normally live their lives in original dark wood with staid upholstery fabrics. The white paint and light fabric treatments on these pieces really is a fresh breath of air---Aaaaaah. ~Sparky
