Palm Beach Week: Celerie Kemble Style


Celerie Kemble is a Palm Beach girl whose style
exemplifies the luxe and whimsy of this wonderful spot.
She has an incredible design philosophy...






"I grew up in Palm Beach,
a place I think of as New York's barefoot alter ego.
I would describe Palm Beach style as
 classic, comfortable and easy,
but with wild moments of glamour and creative panache."

                             -Celerie Kemble









"I have a more-is-more aesthetic.
I believe a room always has space for something you've fallen in love with."

                           -Celerie Kemble







 "Every house needs a soul.
I help put the person in the space.
Otherwise it's just a space."

                        -Celerie Kemble






"In life, as in design, it is not perfection that you should be after.
There's beauty in the faded and worn,
the well-loved, and the sentimental.
Your home should be like a loosely woven fabric of desires, 
memories, practical notions and even compromises.

                       -Celerie Kemble





So talented!

One of my all-time favourite designers.

Celerie's spaces never feel contrived, 
but rather that they have evolved to what they are.

Tomorrow I am looking at the iconic
Palm Beach home Jonathon Adler,
Happy Chic extraordinaire. 

Hope you'll drop in :)

Love this sunshine post! I love how she overlaps so much texture and colours in her rooms. I could definitely live in any one of them. So happy.

Stunning design! I've never heard of Celerie before so thanks for sharing Anne-Marie! Definitely amongst my favourite designers now!

Yet another great post! What fantastic style she has. I love the use of so much colour and how unafraid she is to just "go for it". Too many designers are so restrained and the homeowners' personalities never shine through. Love it. Carol

I've been in love with that green office with aqua armoire since the first time I saw it. Didn't know that was from 2005. And 6 years later, still current and fabulous. That's how a room should be like... fun yet timeless.
