Description

With Kelly Hoppen Style, Kelly lays out her golden rules of decorating. Inspirational room shots are combined with simple text explaining each room design together with specific advice on suitable lighting, fabrics and accessories to create a feeling of calm and balance.

Drawing upon her fabulous portfolio of projects, Kelly begins by addressing the potential space of a room, and how other key aspects such as light, scale and mood, symmetry and balance all need consideration –and then offers her inspired design solutions. Kelly provides a checklist of golden rules for each subject to help you make an accurate assessment of how to design the most beautiful and useful room, and explains the importance of fundamental elements such as surfaces, materials, equipment and lighting.

The first chapter, ‘Hallmark Style’, focuses on the influences and inspirations that are inherent in Kelly’s design work, and shows how organic materials and shapes can add drama and visual impact to an interior.

From here, each subsequent chapter focuses on building up the layers of decoration: ‘Colour and Texture’, in which Kelly uses examples of her own decorative schemes to demonstrate how you can visualise a scheme with the aid of fabric and paint swatches; ‘Lighting Schemes’ offers ideas of how to balance the lighting in a room, and ‘Decorative Lighting’ describes the different ways in which light fittings can enhance a space with glamour or decadence.

The final chapter, ‘Room Details’, brings together the decorative touches that make a home, and Kelly covers the essentials from cabinetry to soft furnishings, accessories and display. She also provides a comprehensive list of suppliers, ranging from soft furnishings and paint manufacturers to picture framers and lighting specialists.

Armed with Kelly Hoppen’s Golden Rules of Design, turning your home into a sanctuary of style and sophistication has never been easier.
