Giveaway: Black & White by Celerie Kemble

Black & White by Celerie Kemble

Who knew that behind the beautiful interiors of the superbly talented Celerie Kemble, there lay a slightly darker side… one who embraces black and white decor?

Celerie Kemble - Kips Bay 2011

Celerie Kemble - Manhattan House

In her new book, Black & White (and a bit in between) , Celerie shows us that rooms devoid of bright hues (a la Dorothy Draper and Madeleine Castaign) are as elegant and timeless as their more colorful counterparts.  With more than 350 gorgeous color photographs of her own work and others, Celerie proves that a limited palette is anything but!

Lela Rose's Apartment

Working with Celerie on several of her projects has only heightened our admiration for her unique style and we’re thrilled to give away an autographed copy of her book today.  A great present for someone who loves interior design (or you could just keep it for yourself!)

    Ok ladies, of course I want this! My favorite black and white room might just have to be Celerie’s closet and that outrageous bath room of hers with my all time favorite tub!
    She looked so glam sitting in it in her first book!
