To Your Taste

One of my favorite design books is Celerie Kemble's, To Your Taste. Her designs are truly inspiring. I have flipped through her book a thousand times and every time I rediscover something in one of her rooms that I fall in love with. I heard her speak at ADAC a couple of months ago and her personality is just as colorful, easy going and lovely as her designs. I would love to work on a project with her!

I am so bummed because she didn't have many of the images from her book posted on her website. Here are the only ones I could fine compliments of http://www.kembleinteriors.com/


These images do not do the book or Celerie's work justice. You must go out and buy the book to see for yourself!! Trust me you will LOVE it.

Celerie also has an awesome line of fabrics with Schumacher...
