Our 11 Picks From The First Ever Kit Kemp Collection with Annie Selkie

We are both fan for Annie Selkie and Kit Kemp thanks to their applications of color and pattern. Particularly for Kit Kemp, a renown British interior designer, we love her aesthetic and point of view –confident, colorful, carefree and sophisticated. And great news here: they are collaborating with each other and introducing their first line for Annie Selkie–The Kit Kemp Collection. The new collection includes area rugs, bedding and pillows. Think about adding some playful bold color and pattern punches in an elegant way to your home? This Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selkie will be one of the perfect options to jazz up for any home spring refresh.

This collection is inspired by Kit’s love of London, New York, and Barbados and is graceful, playful and laid-back.

Barbados Collection

The Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selkie--Barbados Collection

“In the Caribbean, where the sunshine pours in, I go wild with colour because the hotter the colour, the better it looks. For this collection, I wanted joyful, bright colours that actually would sing, because it’s so important to get a room to sing.” —– KIT KEMP

The Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selkie--Barbados Collection

“I feel like when you look very closely at little ponds and rivers with lily pads and then shut your eyes, there was always that little star shape of sparkles. We tried to achieve that with Lily Pad.” —– KIT KEMP

New York City Collection

The Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selkie--New York City Collection

“The essence of New York is that it’s The New World – I’m free to make a bold statement and be as graphic as I want. American interiors have always been lively, and I love how they embrace colour – gorgeous, clear colours. I wanted to create pieces you can put in any setting – a blue room, a lilac room, or a white room – to magically bring it to life.”— KIT KEMP

The Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selkie--New York City Collection

“I use a statement rug as I would use a feature wall. The statement rug is almost the statement of the room and the rest of the room can fade away back. That’s why I love how this collection has bold, graphic, statement rugs. I think they can work well in the hallway to say, ‘I have arrived.’ I think a statement rug will say exactly that in a room.”

London Collection

The Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selkie--London Collection

“The British like a colour – which I call a Bloomsbury colour – that’s both uplifting and a little bit smokey and London foggish: Dusky blues, artichoke greens, damask rose, burnt orange, and aubergine. I’ve taken these hues and incorporated them into herringbone, stripe, and zigzag patterns, which can work as a jumping-off point to express your creativity, like the artists and intellectuals of The Bloomsbury Group.”— KIT KEMP

The Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selkie--London Collection

“Our Workhorse collection of rugs has Nip Tuk, which is actually a herringbone design that can accentuate any other color or pattern you’re using. It’s almost like a background, which is why we call it a workhorse.”

Here are some of our favorites from each collection:
