About Us

“Interior Design is the process of designing how you would like to feel inside."

KEMSI is a high-end design practice focusing on residential and boutique commercial properties throughout the UK and Europe. We inspire, design and curate human experiences, enabling our clients to imagine spaces based on how they would like to feel within them.

Projects have ranged from London townhouses to detached period and modern residences both domestically and abroad, through to commercial spaces in prime London Mayfair.

Founded by Creative Director Carmelina Dalton, who leads all design projects supported by passionate and creative designers. Careful consideration of every step in the design process, from initial concept to completion, indicates a thorough and client-focused approach. Managing every detail to the highest standards ensures that KEMSI delivers on quality and ultimately client satisfaction.

The aim of our practice is to curate spaces that are beautiful and aspirational, with an ever-underlying emphasis on the human experience.

How would you describe your style?

"KEMSI pursues a design aesthetic underpinned by timeless qualities that resist trends. We listen more than tell, and we never tell our clients how we want their space to look.  Whether it be a commercial or residential client we ask them how they want to feel and experience their space. From here we start to inspire our clients with aesthetics responding directly to their history, personalities, and environment, drawing on the locality of the project to evoke feeling. Combining old and new, bringing the outside in to create open, calm and timeless schemes unique to our clients drives our passions and our practice."

"The KEMSI studio is our home from home, a welcoming place for our clientele to experience with a real focus on wellbeing.  

Carmelina’s vision for the space is to provide a serene and inviting atmosphere from the moment you enter the front door. The emphasis is on creating a calming and well-lit environment that promotes relaxation and a feeling of openness. Her goal is to establish a welcoming ambiance that resonates with everyone creating a sense of home for all visiting.  

The studio is furnished with bespoke furniture pieces designed by KEMSI. This project has been a comprehensive renovation that has involved a collaborative effort from a network of trusted network professionals. These experts span various disciplines, including contractors, artisans, furniture and product makers, lighting designers, artists, florists, stone fabricators, kitchen designers, bathroom suppliers and audio-visual specialists. This has created a wonderfully successful working environment and helps clients see and feel workmanship and finishes to help them along their design journey with KEMSI.

Services include interior design, interior architecture, space planning, FF&E sourcing and specification, 2D and 3D drawing packages, bespoke furniture design, soft furnishings, artwork and accessories sourcing as well as site management providing the first port of call for the contractor.

There is an overwhelming sense of harmony and balance when you come to discuss your projects with KEMSI and we look forward to welcoming you."
