Starting at age 16, with a family friend’s kitchen design, Kelly Hoppen developed over 40 years of experience at the cutting edge of the design industry, being sought all over the world. Originally from South Africa, Hoppen has spread her ever-evolving style globally, expanding her area of influence in many fields related (or not) with the design.

Kelly Hoppen describes her style as a “subtle coordinated fusion of East meets West; clean lines and neutral tones, blended with charming warmth and sumptuous opulence”. As a matter of fact, the luxury design, the neutral palettes and beautiful textures, and a great sense of warmth and comfort in her designs define her signature look.
