A house is often sought to be a reflection of its dweller, and turning this metaphor into reality requires years of experience, attention to minute details and of course, talent.
A designer who epitomise these thoughts is renowned interior designer, Kelly Hoppen. Beginning her career at the age of 16, Kelly established her name as a top interior designer for her impeccable sense of style. After years of creating masterpieces for her distinguished clients, Kelly’s work was conferred with an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for her exceptional service to interior designing.
Kelly is very selective about her projects and undertakes only those assignments that are exciting and unique. She was elated at the collaboration with Panchshil for designing the interiors of YOO Villas. One of Britain’s most celebrated interior designers, who with her ever-evolving style, ‘East-meets-West’ approach and palette of clean lines and neutral tones has taken the world of interior design by storm. Kelly’s exuberant work blended with charming warmth has made her known worldwide, taking her across the globe- from Manhattan to London, Barbados to Beirut and France to Southeast Asia, encompassing the world between China and Japan. During this period, she has designed luxury apartments, yachts and jets for the elite, as well as several hotels, restaurants, and offices.
In her own words, she believes, “A home should be where you feel joy and happiness. It should feel like your own space, reflective of the spirit, life and love of the people who live there.” She strongly believes that a house becomes a home over the years and in her book, Kelly Hoppen Home: From Concept to Reality, she explains how it is very important to give your home a stroke of warmth. Your home should be a powerful rhetoric for all your intimate memories and experiences. In all the houses that she has designed, this is how Kelly blends the old with the new, marking her designs unique.
