Classic Kelly












Interior Design by Kelly Hoppen Architectural Digest: May 2003
.

Over the years, Kelly Hoppen has redefined luxury with her incredible eye for marrying simple design with superior materials. The result is magnificent. Warm Neutral tones, contrasted by stark furnishings create a highly dramatic interior. In this London home, she romantically dances with Eastern influences. There is balance and order, softness and severity, elegance and simplicity. Always, a significant lesson to be learned in the admiration of a Classic Kelly interior.

Manhatten Mix













Interior Designer Ray Booth (McAlpine, Booth & Ferrier) has an unsurpassable ability to mix old world charm with modern appointments. The result of what seems to have been an arduous endeavor is incredibly rewarding. What is fascinating about this New York space, is that it cannot be defined. Antiques, Modern Reproductions, French, Asian, European; a seamless blend of periods and culture create a beautifully sophisticated home. Most inspirational is evidence that you can be a lover of many genres of style, and live in a home that reflects your varied affections.

Equestrian Classics






Hermes, Spring 2009 RTW (Jean Paul Gaultier)

Looking to update your wardrobe this season to the latest spring trends? Look to the west. You'll find wide brimmed hats, tan leathers, Mexican stripes, and wrap dresses. Hermes' collection for spring was perfectly co-ordinated with suedes and crocs, tans and stripes, and some serious stetsons! Jean Paul Gaultier's updated version of the west is naturally beautiful and energetic. Equestrian Classics never looked so chic.

Drama Queen










Veranda Magazine, designer Renea Abbott (Veranda.com)

Very rarely do you find a home decorated in black, grey and white that results in the favorable effect that this Houston home does. Owner and designer, Renea Abbott, has an incredible gift for designing inviting dramatic interiors. Despite numerous "over the top" choices in wall colour, accessories and furnishings, the use of restraint to balance each room was carefully considered. The result is spectacular. This Drama Queen knows exactly how to act out.

Just a small sampling of some Neo-classical Occasional Chair favorites. The dark lines of the exposed frames contrasting the light fabric and fine stitching allow these wonderful pieces of furniture to make a grand statement in a most subtle fashion. The perfect place to be sitting pretty reading a book, sipping champagne, or sparing your feet a few minutes from the Manolo's.

Two New York Penthouses merge to become one fantastic Family Home. This neo classic design is elegant and sophisticated. The the creamy white tones, warm and inviting. The furnishings are exquisite. With all it's high style, the most impressive thing is that this home feels lived in. Visions of children eating pancakes at the breakfast table,reading books in the den, drinks on the terrace and dinner parties in the Dining room. This home is the perfect balance of style, sophistication and comfort!

What a refreshing space! Ina Garten, Author and Host of Food Network Program, Barefoot Contessa, built this spectacular home in East Hampton New York, to cook, film and write away from home. The "barn" is inspired by simple Belgium Country Design. The huge kitchen is perfect for filming and entertaining. A counter that seems to never end, a fireplace for evening warmth, French doors that open up to a blue stone terrace... the comfort and Natural Beauty of this space urge you to sit back, eat and drink. Even the furnishings are subtle, and yet so dramatic. I sense the passion for cooking, food and entertaining everywhere. This is my inspiration for some great summer parties.
