Firmdale Hotels

Posted on Fri, 22 Jan 2010 by KiM

To end of the week I thought I’d show some photos of one of the best designed hotels I’ve ever seen. The Firmdale hotels includes 6 London locations and a new one that opened in SoHo in October. “Firmdale Hotels’ owners, Tim and Kit Kemp believe that ‘hotels should be living things, not stuffy institutions’. Kit Kemp has designed all of the interiors in a fresh contemporary English style. Her mixture of colour and texture, modern and antique together with an impressive art collection, has combined to create a unique look and style.” The colours and patterns are gorgeous and these rooms look SO comfortable I want to crawl through my monitor and into one of the beds.

Oh my! These rooms are absolutely heavenly! I LOVE room #4 and the exposed wood beams.

Awesome post! I prefer the first two rooms. Comfortable and relaxing.

You have no idea how much I appreciate this post!!!!! I blogged this week about having yet to see a hotel that looks like a page out of an Anthropologie catalog with some Pottery Barn & West Elm in there… it exists!!!! The one in SOHO would be the closest to me. Thanks SO much for this post ­čÖé AWESOME!

I love your post! I spent a few nights at Firmale’s (London) a few months ago for work. My gosh… so comfortable and luxourious at the same time. The bathroom was the size of an average living room and those high beds… makes you feel like a little girl when climbing in haha!

Lisa says:

oh my, what a beautiful hotel! I’ve never seen one with such custom fabrics and beautiful decorations!

I've had the privilege to stay at several Firmdale Hotels in London, The Covent Gardens Inn and The Charlotte Street Inn, for extended periods since 2002. The design, use of colors and fabrics are so comfortable, casual chic and elegant all the same time. I always felt like I was staying at very high end boutique hotel, but never one that was too ritzy or trying too hard. The service is always top-shelf.
