At Haymarket Hotel, we are lucky enough to work with beautiful Regency dimensions with high ceilings and full-length sash windows in many of our bedrooms. In Room 110, the scheme is inspired by the wonderful patterned fabric used on the high statement headboard. The delicate floral fan-like design in a dusty blue contrasts beautifully with the Terracotta linen on the walls. We used an embroidered tree of life design in rich autumnal colours by @schumacher1889 on the bed cushions.

As the creative force behind every interior detail of the properties under her Firmdale Hotels brand, Kit Kemp has become a master at creating colorful spaces that feel both preppy and modern at the same time. It seems as though every color-soaked space strikes the perfect balance between the two.
