Kelly Hoppen; MBE, Interior designer extraordinaire and the undisputed Queen of Taupe.
When not designing celebrities homes (or the interiors of their private jets... yachts...) or busy writing her 8th design book, Kelly also runs her own design school, has her own collection of home accessories, designs ranges of organic clothing for Earth Couture, has a super successful QVC range, oh – and has a new TV show helping five families create stylish interiors in their own homes starting next month.
Phew! This is one busy lady.
Surely Kelly, based in West London, has no time left to go out and about and enjoy London?! Wrong. This lady is nothing if not a serious multi-tasker!
Kelly shares with us some of her London favourites;
My Transport – Black Cab or I drive my Jaguar.
My Cocktail – A Caipirinha with agave at E&O - they have the best barman.
My Date Night – With my man - Big A, at J.Sheekey – Love, love, love!
My Sunday Brunch – At Raoul's in Notting Hill Gate – Great food and happy, Spanish staff.
My Boutique – The Cross, its small and full of unusual one offs.
My High Street Store – All Saints, I love their t-shirt clothes.
London’s Best Kept Secret – The Idle Hour in Barnes; its cute, has great food and is tucked away.
My London Icon (Past or Present) – Vidal Sassoon. A good friend, he is an extraordinary man and pioneer in his field – he was also so inspired by architecture – his new film is a must!
'Super Interiors with Kelly Hoppen' starts on Sept 21st at 8pm on Channel 5.
