“There was constant fear that people would walk in and say, ‘This place looks like crazytown. Were you drinking while decorating?'”
Kemble just knows how to turn beautiful places into magical moments of dreamlike picture-perfect design. And if the resort she opened with her husband, financier Boykin Curry, is a little wack-a-doodle—it’s also precisely what you would want to walk into on a dream a Caribbean vacation: a modern day Alice in Wonderland fantasy world of luxurious laid-backedness (yep, just invented a new term) with a healthy dose of quirky.
“I think interiors that are well-designed tell people how to behave,” Kemble says. “Here, I want them to know they’re supposed to be barefoot but they can also put on a grand hat and their emeralds and go twirl around on the beach.” Celerie, you are my spirit animal.
