Celerie Kemble

Interior designer and author Celerie Kemble, 37, perches behind an oval brass dining table at her sleek office. A fresh coat of pale pink paint coats the walls, and the floors are a screaming coral.

Kemble heads the New York office of Kemble Interiors, a Palm Beach firm cofounded by her talented mother, Mimi McMakin. Her signature approach offers the tone and comfort of Palm Beach with a modernist twist. Her book, To Your Taste (Clarkson Potter), is chockablock with upbeat advice for all budgets.
