Circa Hosts Celerie: April 25th from 2-3:30

This year's Room to Bloom Symposium guest speaker will be the fabulous Celerie Kemble! Circa is excited to announce that she will be coming to our shop afterwards for a book signing, promoting her new publication Black and White (and a Bit in Between). Come by to purchase a copy (or bring in your own!) and have this talented designer add in her autograph! It is sure to be a coffee table hit- and will be even more so when you can open it up and show off Celerie's signature! THINK of how impressed your friend's will be! We would be impressed, at least. We hope to see you at Circa on
Wednesday, April 25th from 2-3:30.

Here is Random House's synopsis on Celerie's most recent publication:

"Black and white décor is at once dramatic and understated, modern and classic, apparent in the work of iconic designers such as Dorothy Draper and Madeleine Castaing but just as present in design today. And the inspiration is all around us—from nature (a zebra’s stripes, tree trunks rising from drifts of snow) to old Hollywood movies and fashion to black-and-white photography and patterns we encounter in our everyday lives (crossword puzzles and the pages of our favorite novels).

In Black and White (and a Bit in Between), acclaimed interior designer Celerie Kemble trades in her signature vivid palette for this iconic aesthetic, highlighting the black and white work of design stars and peers, including Bunny Williams, Thomas O’Brien, Mary McDonald, Victoria Hagan, Mark Hampton, Delphine Krakoff, Brad Ford, Philip Gorrivan, Carrier and Co., and Miles Redd, and welcoming you into more than 100 spaces in every imaginable aesthetic. Woven throughout are her witty observations and expert advice on choosing the best paints and finishes, adding patterns and accessories, building an entire room scheme based on inspiration found in nature, collecting black and white objects, and even choosing the perfect accent colors.

With more than 350 gorgeous color photographs, this is a vividly photographed celebration of a timeless scheme, infused with inspirational tips, glimpses into showstopping homes, and proof that a limited palette is anything but."
