Overview

Simple, sophisticated, yet invitingly luxurious interiors are the hallmark of Kelly Hoppen's unique, award-winning style. In this beautiful decorating handbook, Hoppen imparts the golden rules she has gathered from twenty-five years of innovative designs, giving readers the confidence to bring the same serene elegance into their homes. Each chapter focuses on a different fundamental of good design. For example, the first-Function and Space-is about evaluating the potential of a room before making any decisions. It teaches you to look carefully at the room's aspect, light, size, function, and architecture as a professional interior designer would, and offers inspired solutions for creating the best design for your needs. Using examples of bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms drawn from her fabulous portfolio of projects, Kelly takes us through each room in the home and shares the secrets of her design approach.

Each subsequent chapter focuses on building up the layers of decoration: Texture and Color; Lighting Effects; Joinery; Upholstery; Soft Furnishings, and Accessories and Display. With clear-cut suggestions for each layer of decorative detail, Kelly explains how to infuse neutral palettes with richness and warmth using textural contrast and accent colors. She offers advice on selecting and displaying pictures and favorite objects, and emphasizes the importance of including candles, fragrance, and fresh flowers in contemporary vases as part of the Kelly Hoppen style. A comprehensive list of suppliers, from soft-furnishing sources to picture framers and lighting specialists, is provided. Kelly Hoppen Style taps into the creativity and experience of one of the world's foremost designers and will inspire you to transform your home with harmony, beauty, and a touch of drama.

Introduction

One of the wonderful things about producing a book is that it makes you stop and think. There has to be a time for reflection, a chance to stop and look at interior design and consider what is really important right at this moment. Interestingly, it has brought into sharp focus the fact that I feel very differently about my home than the way I felt three years ago. My last book, Close Up, was launched on 11 September 2001, possibly the blackest date in recent history. Until then, interior design was focused on creating a look that was out to impress. But from that day on, something changed. We realized that to go home was a privilege not a given. People began to spend more time at home and to turn those homes into cocoons of security and warmth. Clients no longer demanded interiors built on the wow factor - instead they touched on different values, how they wanted to feel: safe, comfortable relaxed and happy. Having the so-called "perfect show house" no longer mattered. Having a home that really was a home did. And I find myself completely in tune with that. How a room looks is important, but it must also reflect you and your family and be grounded in reality. It is how you feel when you are in it - whether eating, talking, reading or sleeping. The art of design is now about usingspace, light, color and texture to promote good feelings. The biggest compliment anyone can pay me is to walk into one of my rooms and say it has a positive influence on their mood. I am convinced that a calm, quiet and harmonious interior can be as beneficial to health as a sensible diet and regular exercise.

I am also aware that mine is a look that has spawned a thousand imitators. Yet few really tap into the essence of what I do. This book is for those who love my style, yet can't quite capture the look when they try it. I have tried to explain my golden rules of decorating, gathered from over 25 years of experience. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the design process. For example, Space and Function is about assessing the potential of a room before making any choices about lighting or furniture. From here on, subsequent chapters examine everything from Color and Texture, Cabinetry and Doors, to Home Furnishings and Accessories and Display.

All books are a journey and this has been a particularly interesting one. When I design, it comes straight from the heart, so it goes against the grain to sit down and analyze what I have done and why. The experience of running my own design school has helped me find ways of communicating my ideas and made me far more aware of why one idea works brilliantly and another doesn't, why some people struggle and others appear to do things effortlessly. This book is for all those who love their homes and pour their hearts into them. I know exactly how you feel.
