A minimalist I am not.
Nor am I a monochromatic master.
I may not master these design skills but Kelly Hoppen certainly does own these skillz like nobodies business.
I am always amazed by her work and how she can elevate any space without such a neutral palette.
Kelly’s latest book does not disappoint.
Written by Kelly Hoppen, M.B.E., Foreword by Terence Conran, Contribution by Michelle Ogundeh
Kelly Hoppen offers a wealth of experience and advice on achieving your signature style, making this a definitive master class in home design. This book is a must for any home decorator wanting to give their home a touch of Kelly Hoppen’s distinctive style, the perfect combination of luxury with simplicity. Here, she reveals her trade secrets and shares her expert knowledge to ensure that your decorating project, however big or small in scale, runs smoothly, stays within budget, and achieves the look you want. In The Groundwork, part one of the book, she advises on basics, setting out the design process and weighing the choices, analyzing space, and working out what to do to improve the ergonomics of a home.
