Kelly Hoppen’s London home is homage to her talent as one of the UK’s most celebrated Interior Designers. The classic Georgian townhouse is 2,500 square feet and is imbued in her trademark neutral colour scheme throughout -white walls, black wooden sliding doors and grey pored resin flooring. With plenty of natural lighting throughout the house, Kelly has complemented this with concealed lighting coming up from behind the walls. With its eclectic mix of furnishings and designs by Kelly, the house is enriched with textural aspects such as couture covered black sofas, velvet cushions and lingerie satin curtains.Kelly installed two luxurious bedrooms with pure white en suite bathrooms, a separate walking wardrobe, a gym, laundry room and a gorgeous garden.A truly ambitious project, the entire renovation of this Georgian townhouse remarkably took just five months from concept to completion.
