An Exclusive Look | Celerie Kemble’s Playa Grande


Remember seeing Celerie Kemble’s Dominican Republic dreamscape in last month’s AD? A magical resort of 13 bungalows that she designed on 2,000 acres along a stretch of sand called Playa Grande? It’s a pastellica heaven that looks like it’s made of celadon icing and Chantilly lace. After AD published them, I just wanted to see MORE? Know what I mean? I knew Patrick Cline had shot the resort for Celerie months before, and we got the thumbs up to share all his never-before-seen photos of Playa Grande on the blog! I’ve been so excited to share this with you all, and I could hardly narrow it down from the hundred Patrick sent over to me! He’s posted them all on his portfolio site, I really recommend clicking through to see em! No one shoots ethereal-dreamy like Patrick! Pull up a chair, and get your pinning fingers out!

Hope you enjoy this exclusive look as much as I did! Major thanks to Celerie and Patrick for sharing them with us! Can this be my next vacation please?

      I know! When I saw it in AD, I emailed P and was like…. didn’t you shoot the shit out of that place? YES, yes he did! She’s a freaking wonder!

  5. What a setting in paradise. I love every single room and Celerie truly knows what she likes. I understand my friend Terri found a lot of the wicker pieces for her!!
