This lavishly photographed interiors book shows how to leave behind design "rules" to create truly beautiful, original interiors. For over 20 years, Kit Kemp has been at the forefront of the international design community, with her signature style that mixes contemporary elements with antiques and junk-shop finds, luxurious fabrics with printed wallpapers and hand finished detailing with collections of simple objects that create impact. She avoids taking design too seriously, playing with scale, colour and pattern to create very personal, handcrafted spaces. Alongside the stunning images of room sets and detailed close-ups will be the inspiration behind Kit's work and her tips for creating your own version of her style at home. Interiors are meant for living in, and the key is to create a space that is comfortable, beautiful and reflects who you really are.
