Celerie Kemble is a principal of Kemble Interiors New York, an interior design firm founded by her mother Mimi McMackin in Palm Beach, Florida. A graduate of Harvard, Celerie worked briefly in film production before quickly succumbing to what she calls a compulsion for design and the creation of thoughtful interiors that “put the person in the place.” Since then, she has spent the past fifteen years cultivating a portfolio of much publicized residential and commercial interiors that are unique and diverse as her clientele. Known for her candor, humor and approachable design advice, Celerie published her first monograph Celerie Kemble: To Your Taste in 2008 and followed by Black and White: and a Bit in Between in 2011 with Clarkson-Potter. Celerie’s most recent work was featured in Vogue’s April 2014 issue. She has also appeared in J. Crew’s “Real Women” ads and alongside industry leaders in Benjamin Moore’s “Experts” campaign. In 2012 she was recognized as one of the country’s top talents and bestowed the A-List Award by Elle Décor. She has created to-the-trade fabrics and wall coverings with F. Schumacher, a collection of floorcoverings with Merida Meridian, furniture and upholstery with Henredon, decorative accessories with Maitland-Smith and outdoor furniture with Lane Venture.
The CELERIE by Celerie Kemble collection captures a design philosophy that evolved from blending classic sensibility with a dose of irreverence and humor to achieve a home that is tasteful, eclectic, always evolving and welcoming. Celerie believes in being receptive to new visual impressions ….. stretch your vision, extend your field of influence, draw from your pleasures liberally. Her collection of decorative pillows, throws, scented candles and lighting invites you to open yourself to her world of inspiration.
