Interiors: Mixing Prints

I am not sure if mixing prints was introduced first to fashion and then to home decor, or vice versa. It’s a bold move in either medium – though more risky in home furnishings. When done correctly in the home it can look fresh, original, and very welcoming.

Kit Kemp is the designer behind some of Firmdale’s boutique London hotels like The Soho Hotel and the Covent Garden Hotel.  Kemp is impeccable at mixing prints.  Her use of color modernizes the antique inspired rooms she designs. Being self-taught, she believes there are no rules in design – trusting instincts and taking risks have been paramount in her success.
