With 40 years’ experience at the forefront of the design industry, Kelly Hoppen is one of the most celebrated and sought after interior designers in the world. It was her relentless passion for design, at 16 years-old, which kick started her iconic career. Her first commission, to design a family friend’s kitchen, has led to multiple awards and numerous publishers and businesses continuously seeking her unparalleled expertise.
To celebrate her extraordinary career, Kelly has released her tenth book, House of Hoppen - a 40 year retrospective, in October 2016 and a collection of over 100 pieces of furniture with Resource Décor.
Kelly’s globally renowned and ever-evolving style is underpinned by a subtle coordinated fusion of East meets West; clean lines and neutral tones, blended with charming warmth and sumptuous opulence. She has put her stamp on the homes, yachts and jets of private clients all over the world and now focuses on commercial projects including hotels, bars, restaurants, offices, and tower blocks. With thousands of projects spanning the last four decades, Kelly’s most recent launch took place in China on Shenzhen Bay, one of the most sought after and exclusive addresses in China.
Kelly is honoured to be the recipient of copious design awards and the proudest point in her career to date came in 2009, when she was made an MBE for her services to interior design. Recognised for the passion of inspiring women in business, she has also just been honoured with WIE (Women: Inspiration & Enterprise) Inspirational Award.
