Summary
Following on from the hugely successful titles A Living Space and Every Room Tells a Story, Kit Kemp is back with another colorful and exciting interiors book that showcases her unique approach to design. In Traveling Light Kit shares the inspiration that her travels have on her design decisions: whether it's a fabric from India that inspires a wallpaper, or a collection of baskets sourced from across the UK to decorate a bar in New York, Kit is an expert at creating memorable spaces. As always, she creates creates personal, handcrafted rooms by bending the rules and combining colour and wit. 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, color 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
