I love travel and always find it inspires me creatively. So having spent a week in New York and Washington DC earlier last year, I arrived back on Australian shores with a truck load full of inspiration and rearing to go!
There was so much to see and do in New York! As you do, we of course checked out all the usual tourist highlights and that gave us a good overview of the city. However, being an interior designer, it made sense to check out the Crosby Street Hotel designed Kit Kemp during our time there.
An internationally award winning interior designer, Kit has made a name for herself designing hotels around the world. Whether you love her work or not, her unique approach results in interiors that are eye-popping to say the least. A fusion of traditional and modern, she has a style all her own with a decidedly quirky and eclectic twist.
For those who are familiar with the area of Soho in Lower Manhattan, the hotel is perfectly suited to the edgy, creative vibe there. In recent history Soho came to the public’s attention for being the location of many artists’ lofts and art galleries. Now it’s better known for its variety of shops ranging from trendy upscale boutiques to national and international chain store outlets.
