Kelly Hoppen is one of the world’s most renowned interior designers. Her style is unique, elegant, minimal yet very comfortable and homey. Her work has been an inspiration to me ever since I started my work as an interior architect. The colors and design elements she uses are timeless. Her creativity allowed her to launch her own furniture and accessory line to enable her to create the vision she has for each space. This usually is a dilemma for many designers, not finding the suitable elements to create the final look they want to achieve. She, however, has solved this. Her business Kelly Hoppen Interiors had a turnover of 18 million pounds last year. In addition to the retail part of her business, she runs the Kelly Hoppen Design school .
This October(2010) she will be launching her new vintage line in Hong Kong, photos and information taken from Yoo. Yoo is a new vision to creating luxury property in collaboration with world top designers such as Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders, and Kelly Hoppen.
