HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
Husband and wife team Kit and Tim Kemp recently reacquired their very first property, the Dorset Square Hotel which they originally bought in the eighties. Located in London's Marylebone, an exciting residential area within easy reach of the city’s theater and financial districts, the hotel is surrounded by shops, restaurants and world-class galleries. The couple has always had an affinity for this property, which led to the birth of Firmdale Hotels. Their portfolio now boasts eight boutique properties, seven in London and one in New York. After an extensive refurbishment, the English country style has been replaced by Kit Kemp's signature stamp: bold colors, contrasting fabrics, and one-off art pieces and furnishings. The interiors are intriguing and engaging, from the plush guest drawing room with an open fireplace, to the lively bar and brasserie which features specially commissioned wallpapers and hand woven carpets. Kemp believes that “hotels should be living things, not stuffy institutions”. This mantra is illustrated clearly in the 38 individually designed bedrooms, many of which look onto the leafy green private garden square. Each follows a different color scheme and is adorned with items that Kemp has gathered from around the globe.
A pioneering property in London’s Marylebone, reacquired and refurbished in the bold and eclectic style that is Kit Kemp’s signature stamp.
