The Original Kit Kemp



Once you cross the ornately-molded threshold of this converted warehouse, you’ll enter into an enticing world that draws upon the creative legacy of one of the most influential early 20th century associations of English writers, artists, and intellectuals—The Bloomsbury Group that drew its name from the neighborhood Charlotte Street Hotel calls home. Star designer Kit Kemp has reinvented the Bloomsbury aesthetic for the 21st century. Once a pharmacy, the building now teems with light, airy spaces punctuated by period details like wooden paneling, molding, and tall windows that elegantly frame the views across the London rooftops outside.



A Bloomsbury period painting, a piece of hand-made furniture, or even a dressmakers’ doll might be the eye-catching centerpiece of any given guestroom at Charlotte Street Hotel. Sumptuously patterned fabrics dominate the décor, such as those used to cover the tall, padded headboards. Kemp even came up with an exclusive wallpaper print using details taken from an 18th century Hogarth Press woodcut.
