Glo­be­trot­ting five-star inspiration form the lat­est in ho­tel de­sign

Fir­m­dale Ho­tels will be open­ing the doors of its sec­ond New York prop­erty The Whitby next month. With owner and de­sign di­rec­tor Kit Kemp at the helm, the in­te­ri­ors are both lux­u­ri­ous and con­tem­po­rary in feel. Kit, who is known for her dis­tinc­tive mix of print, pat­tern and tex­ture, has been bring­ing colour to the ho­tel scene for more than 30 years. The Whitby is no ex­cep­tion, each of the 86 rooms hav­ing been in­di­vid­u­ally de­signed by Kit to tell a unique story through colour, lux­ury up­hol­stery and play­ful fea­tures.
