A Living Space


In A Living Space, internationally acclaimed interior designer Kit Kemp takes you on a vibrant, inspiring personal voyage through the many spaces she has designed. Here she shares the tools of her trade – her passion for materials such as fabric and embroidery, wood and stone; the innovative way she dares to mix colour and pattern with old and new furniture, textiles and objects; the joy in the wit and humour of contemporary art, dogs and unexpected details; and most importantly, her ethos that design is not something to fear, but instead something to be embraced and enjoyed. Kit brings together a visual feast of images to show that when it comes to design, there are no rules. It is about trusting your instincts, being prepared to take some risks and being clever with affordable and accessible pieces rather than always needing to blow the budget, and above all having fun.
