DCOTA Hosts Palm Beach Designer Celery Kemble

The Design Center of the Americas, or as we call it, DCOTA,  has several wonderful design events throughout the year.  This year at the Fall Market, they hosted a panel highlighted by well known interior designer Celery Kemble.

Celery took part in a panel discussion with an exective from F. Schumacher for whom she has designed fabulous fabrics and now, wallcoverings.

Here are some of the striking designs Celery has created for F. Schumacher....and for all of us too.  Thanks Celery!

This is so unique.  Little silver studs on a linen texture.  I have never seen anything like this.  And that is what Celery likes to do,  think of something she might want to use in a design project that is just not available she creates it herself.

Yes this looks a bit like zebra but is done in a large scale and hence takes on a totally different feeling.  It is very interesting to take something that is one small design element and magnify it.  Below is a pattern that looks like a chrysanthemum but is actually a huge repeat that can almost fill a wall with one or two repeats.

Flame stitch and chevron designs are so popular now.  Celery enlarged this design and printed it on grasscloth for an unusual twist.

I can't wait to see what she is going to do next!  What do you think of her designs?
