PALM BEACH MEETS SOUTHAMPTON

┬áLily Maddock’s Southampton home is the latest to be featured in APT with LSD and it might be my favorite yet. This probably has something to do with the fact that Celerie Kemble (Lily’s cousin-in-law, can you say lucky?) and her team at Kemble Interiors are responsible for the design. Who better to execute the “mix of mod, preppy, old-school Palm Beach and Miami glam” Lily was after than a Palm Beach native?

I especially love how Celerie carried sherbert colored grasscloth wallpaper throughout the house. Playful but chic. Exactly how I would describe Palm Beach style. Also, in case you’re wondering the key to a good night’s sleep, the answer is a cabana stripe canopy bed. Definitely what sweet dreams are made of!

P.S come visit me at I Suwannee where I’m sharing what my house wants for Christmas!

EDDIE ROSS: BLACK AND WHITE

I’m not sure if it’s the change of seasons, but lately I’ve been craving a more neutral color palette. To satisfy my need for neutrals I revisited one of my favorite design books: Black & White (And a Little Bit in Between) by Celerie Kemble.

The book is filled with gorgeous images, but my favorites are from interior decorator (and one of my design idols), Eddie Ross. His interiors are always timeless and sophisticated but in a black and white palette they’re even more elegant.

I’m particularly envious of his collection of black and white transferware and Wedgewood jasperware. I think I might need to start my own collection!
