Kit Kemp is an incomparable interior designer, famous for owning and designing famous boutique hotels including The SoHo Hotel in London and The Whitby Hotel in New York.
Photos from the Knightsbridge Hotel show Kit Kemp’s bright and colorful rooms. Notable features include orange floral and geometric accents in bold colors such as orange, hot pink, emerald green, and rich turquoise blue across the spaces, especially upholstering the headboards.
These deep jewel tones fit snugly into the category of mood-boosting interior design ideas. Furthermore, the upholstered headboard brings a pop of color to the room while paired with neutral bedding.
‘There’s plenty of playful color, geometric forms, and rich textures to love in these inspiring bedrooms,’ says designer Kit Kemp. The talented designer is the queen of color utilizing colors that will make you happy, and this Knightsbridge space is no exception.
The star of the show is the orange, yellow, and pink upholstery on the first photo, which perfectly interacts with the orange curtains, the pink and orange decorative pillows, and the orange bench at the end of the bed. We found the fabric, and it’s Designers Guild Manchu Alchemilla, available in fabric and as a throw blanket.

This fabric is a fusion of Chinese and Indian design with painter style flowers. The design is digitally printed onto scoured linen. Ideal for upholstery, curtains, or bedcovers.
Carlin Van Noppen, principal interior designer and owner of Fig Linens and Home says, ‘A bright and colorful fabric on the headboard is a wonderful touch for adding that “intentionally designed” feel to a space.’ Carlin continues, ‘If you are a person who prefers to use neutral bedding, a patterned headboard brings a pop of color to the bedroom. The effects can be similar to adding a bright wallpaper, except with a lower commitment. I especially love the fabric that Kit has chosen, which makes the room instantly look bright and joyful.’
‘My first thought when designing a home is always “how can I make this room work for the people who are going to use it everyday?”‘ Carlin says. ‘By designing a space with happiness as a the central goal, Kit creates a beautiful room that is fun to stay in and helps her clients enjoy their travels. In some ways, it’s the most functional type of design,’ she finishes.
