Pink and Green and a {Palm} Beach Story

In my beach bag...

A fabulous issue of T&C

featuring an article cum interview with the author of my most recent book purchase, Celerie Kemble: To Your Taste: Creating Modern Rooms with a Traditional Twist.

This Palm Beach royalty, has created on of my two most favorite pink and green rooms ever.
Absolutely wonderful, it opens my heart like a breath of fresh air.

Chic and Fun.

Celerie Kemble's childhood was in many ways a design tutorial spent in construction sites, antique stores, and in the unique homes designed by her mother, Mimi McMakin.  After concentrating in English Literature she graduated from Harvard and quickly succumbed to what she calls a compulsion for design and home improvement.  For 12 years she has been working as a much publicized residential and commercial interior designer based out of New York City.  The office now boasts six designers and an influx of interns working with clients in The Dominican Republic, Puglia Italy, Texas, Amagansett, Bridgehampton, and Manhattan.
"In life as in design, it is not perfection you should be after.  There's beauty in the faded and worn, the well loved, and the sentimental...After all, life has seams. Your home should be like a loosely woven fabric of desires, memories, practical, notions, and even compromises."  - Celerie Kemble

I absolutely loved the book by Celerie Kemble of Kemble Interiors and I shall be making a separate post about it. She really knows and loves her subject.
