In Design Secrets, Kit Kemp plants that creative seed giving readers a new way of looking at interiors and the confidence to be bold in their designs.

Design Secrets is a unique, lively and informative masterclass which will become your touchstone for top tips, do's and don'ts and creative projects to add a fresh and exciting feel to your living space. It even has its own colouring-in book to explore new colour ideas.

Discover how to create character in your home by making the most of the often forgotten details, from dado rails to the leading edge of a curtain. Learn about celebrating raw materials, creating a collection and even adding a touch of magic, as Kit shares creative ways to bring personalised details to make your home as individual as you are.

Kit reveals her 'Dos and Don'ts', including clever tips on how to hang art to tell a story and designing your own signature Kit Kemp headboard. This chapter is an invaluable glossary of creative ideas, with playful yet practical guides exploring topics from how to use colour in design, tips for lighting up a room, how to use found fabrics and more.

In 'Meet the Maker' readers can delve into the creative minds of some of Kit's favourite artists and craftsmen, from the retired sailor turned woolworker, Colin Millington to renowned ceramicist Martha Freud, sustainable fashion designer Clio Peppiatt and figurative painter Joe Fan.

In the final chapter, Kit intends to awaken 'the maker' in every reader with a series of fun and creative projects to do at home, from embellishing a shell mirror to painting candlesticks and a step-by-step guide to applique a cushion.

There is even an opportunity to add your own personal flourish to the book itself in the one-of-a-kind hand illustrated colouring-in book, which invites readers to reimagine some of Kit Kemp's most iconic interiors.

In Design Secrets, Kit Kemp welcomes you into her colourful world and reveals how to create interiors which capture the imagination.
