You will see a common thread with all of the designers I have a crush on. They all use bold pattern and color, and Celerie Kemble is no exception.
Celerie grew up around her interior designer mother, Mimi Maddock McMakin, who founded Kemble Interiors in Palm Beach in 1982. She graduated from Harvard and worked briefly in film, but ultimately found herself coming right back to the interior design roots she knew so well and now heads the New York branch of the firm. I guess interior design is theatrical in its own way and so I can see why she would have a love of both film and design.
Many of Celerie’s interiors start with a black and white base. I have always had a special love of black and white. My first bedroom growing up was black and white, and I also designed one of my first homes all in black and white. Like Celerie, I love to use this as a base and then add pops of bold color. Black and white is always a wise choice since it is both classic and timeless.
