While out and about today I scored a new book for my collection by inspiring designer Kelly Hoppen. It is one of many books she has written showing the world simple yet chic and classic design sensibility. She is a hugely successful South African born British designer based in London, England. She has been in the business for over 30 years designing luxury homes, hotels and restaurants and now also has a range of stylish furniture, accessories, wallpaper and more. Another of her accomplishments is running her own design school to which people clamor to learn from one of the best and she has recently created an app for Iphone's and Ipad's keeping up with cutting edge technology.
Kelly Hoppen books- worth a look! over and over and over!
Kelly's interiors are made up of classic furniture pieces, a soothing colour pallette, multiple textures and elegant finishings. Many rooms with dark woods, light walls and soft furnishings. Everything seems to work cohesively together with nothing jarring but still interesting and appealing. I have always found her style to be timeless but at the same time current. She combines Easterna nd Western aesthetics. Take a long look at these amazing spaces she has created!
Here are some examples of her home furnishings available on line and in stores in England.
Finally if you have a spare 4000 pounds or $8,000 you can attend her one week intensive design course in Notting Hill in the heart of London. If I win the lottery it`s on my wish list...........
