The Luxe Lifestyle

Kit Kemp and Annie Selke join forces on a new lifestyle collection.

In the Caribbean, where the sunshine pours in, I go wild with color,” says Kit Kemp. Here, she poses in Barbados with her “Always Greener” indoor/outdoor rug in cobalt/green.

When you combine the creative talents of two design powerhouses such as Kit Kemp and Annie Selke, you are sure to hit the jackpot. As founder and creative director of Firmdale Hotels and the Kit Kemp Design Studio, Kit has a passion for both travel and textiles. So it seemed only fitting that she would partner with textile designer Annie Selke to produce a lifestyle collection inspired by her favorite destinations—New York, London, and Barbados.

Like many of the pieces in the collection, the “Dew Pond” pattern can be ordered as a microhooked wool rug or as a pillow. Other pillows on the sofa include the “Always Greener” indoor/outdoor pillow in pink/orange and the “Boogie Board” pink embroidered decorative pillow.

The Kit Kemp Collection for Annie Selke offers a beautiful assortment of 50 storied rugs, dozens of color-infused pillows, and a handful of vibrantly patterned bedding pieces, many with dreamy botanical accents. “We’ve had a year where everything has seemed grey, so I feel we’re ready to just open our minds to color, to joy, and to comfort,” Kit says. “This collection celebrates the love of art, craft, and the artisan at work.” Shop the collection at
