S1 Ep 6 Kit Kemp on Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant

Kit Kemp is an interior designer, the founder and creative director of Kit Kemp Design Studio and Firmdale Hotels. She’s known for championing British art and craft and for her colourful, eclectic and much-imitated style.


The plaque she has chosen is at 46 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury and reads: "Vanessa Bell 1879-1961 Duncan Grant 1885-1978 artists lived and worked here". They were artists, but they were also linchpins of the group of intellectuals, writers and artists known as the Bloomsbury Set. We discussed the relationship between Bell and Grant, their place in the Bloomsbury Set and their creative partnership.


The Blue Plaque Pod is brought to you by Kassia St. Clair, author, cultural historian and commemorative plaque fancier. I would love to know what you think, whether you have a favourite plaque, or if there's someone you think would make a great guest. Get in touch at blueplaquepod.com.
