House tour: Designer Kelly Hoppen’s London residence combines luxury and a laidback lifestyle

Kelly Hoppen needs no introduction. Her career in interior design started at the age of 16, and 40 years onwards, she is one of the most celebrated and sought after interior designers in the world. Her projects number in the thousands and include award-winning homes, yachts, private jets, hotels, restaurants, and offices. In 2009, she was conferred an MBE, a top British honour, for her exceptional service to interior design.

Her 9,000 sqf home in Central London pays homage to her talent and showcases her signature style that fuses Eastern simplicity with Western luxury. The neutral and calm palette conveys a timeless and understated elegance, and this is complemented by pops of colour, as well as an array of textures that enrich the space with a new dimension.
