Dorset Square Hotel is the latest edition of the Firmdale Hotels, all designed by Kit Kemp. What makes it different this time, is the smaller size. This intimate townhouse has 38 individually designed rooms. Her distinctive signature style suits extremely well to represent an updated look for the traditional British interior design style.
Kemp’s starting point for the design was to use the history of the place for inspiration. The house is located on the site of Thomas Lord’s first cricket ground. Kit’s decorative style is to use cricket memorabilia as a part of her designs.
Compared to her previous work, there was even more intricate detailing in an imaginative use of traditional materials and less emphasis on large art pieces that she has used in bigger hotels.
