Dream Home:South of France villa by Kelly Hoppen

This spectacular villa designed by Kelly Hoppen and situated in the picturesque South of France near Antibes was a challenge for the celebrated British interior designer.

The London based client, who had a much more traditional taste than Kelly, wanted a very classic home, something with lots of colour and something very beautiful, but not too feminine in its overall look. As with all of her projects, Kelly started with a neutral base and then built on this with accents of colour in each room using stunning fabrics, art and star pieces of furniture, such as the pink Moisonnier table in the entrance hall.


With the eye catching pink Moissonnier table at the centre as well as the pink velvet borders on the curtains, the entrance hall is a truly unique space and quite different to anything Kelly has designed before. The clients’ favourite colour is pink so Kelly has undoubtedly remained loyal to the brief.A Birgit Israel chandelier hangs elegantly over the table and the floor to ceiling windows naturally light the room beautifully.

With plenty of natural light flooding in through the large double windows, the study is a beautiful, understated room in which one can relax. The touch of orange on the India Mahdavi stools can also be seen on the beautiful vintage cushion coverings.Sofas / Cushions / Fabrics Vintage linens and tickings Armchair George Smith– Stools India Mahdavi-Coffee Table jnl– Floor Lamps Porta Romana– Curtains Ian Mankin.


Kelly has elegantly designed the living room with an Andrew Martin sofa and striking black chairs from Collection Pierre. The collection of black ipe cavalli coffee tables at the centre of the room are complimented by the dramatic black and white accessories and the beautiful black and white Birgit Israel lamps. Kelly decided here to stick with her neutral colour palette as she felt the formal living spaces should be more neutral areas where the whole family and all of their individual tastes come together in a harmonious way.Sofa Andrew Martin-Black Chairs Collection Pierre-Coffee Table Ipe Cavalli furniture-Black&White Table Lamps Birgit Israel-Carpet Borderline carpets-Sconce Todhunter Earle-Art Michael Hoppen-Green Vase Kelly Hoppen.

The La Fibule armchairs undoubtedly contribute to a relaxed dining experience whilst the beautiful sconce from DK Home and the candlesticks from the Kelly Hoppen store create a glamorous atmosphere.Table Guadarte-Chairs La Fibule-Sconce DK HOME-Candlestick Kelly Hoppen store-Glassware Owners own collection of vintage items.

The elegantly designed master bedroom includes everything the client wished for. The beautiful green on the Meridiani bed is set off by the natural light flooding through the windows and can also be seen on the Kelly Hoppen cushions which sit on top off the Guadarte chairs.Lamps Porta romana-Bed Meridiani-Side table Guadarte-Art Michael Hoppen-Carpet Borderline carpets-Cabinet Valerie Wade-Chairs-Guadarte, cushions-Kelly Hoppen-Lighting Bella Figura-Art Michael Hoppen Gallery.
