Turnell & Gigon's pop-up Caribbean Suite by Kit Kemp

The sitting room walls are lined with a fabric by Raoul, which Kit has coloured specifically for the scheme, to give a new freshness to the design.

Offset against this backdrop are a selection of upholstered sofas, chairs and tables, many of which are Kit's designs, and can be purchased through Shop Firmdale.

Working with unusual colour and fabric combinations, upholstered pieces feature wonderfully quirky design details - armchairs are edged with felt, using pinking shears, and brightly coloured leathers can be spotted on side chairs.

A bed set has been also designed for the space, featuring an over-scaled headboard in Schumacher’s quirky Under The Sea embroidery, dressed with a linen tester in the Full Bloom hand embroidery also from Schumacher, to give a fresh sense of playfulness to the scheme.

This leads though to the dressing room, where walls have been covered in a large scale Jean Monro floral linen, incorporating a traditional dressing table; a nostalgic reminder of romantic dressing rooms, which often do not make their way into houses today.
