Kelly Hoppen‘s look has become one which is both widely recognized and used by many people around the world when developing the interior style for their own homes. Neutral palettes, beautiful textures and an East meets West aesthetic are all parts of her signature look. She always wanted people to feel a great sense of warmth in their home, wrapped in comfort and surrounded by gorgeous pieces, all of which help to enhance those feelings of calm and relaxation.
For many years she dreamed of designing her own collection of wonderful products for the home to maximize that feeling of serenity and happiness. This is the culmination of her years of experience and of knowing what works well.
