This book is a must for any home decorator wanting to give their home a touch of Kelly Hoppen's distinctive style, the perfect combination of luxury with simplicity. Here, she reveals her trade secrets and shares her expert knowledge to ensure that your decorating project, however big or small in scale, runs smoothly, stays within budget, and achieves the look you want. In The Groundwork, part one of the book, she advises on basics, setting out the design process and weighing the choices, analyzing space, and working out what to do to improve the ergonomics of a home. She also identifies personal requirements and personal style. Getting Started looks at each room or key area in the home in detail, offering advice and ideas, highlighting the key issues and fundamental design principles applicable to each space, and providing helpful hints and guidelines on all aspects of decorating and furnishing that room.

    "The monograph of the award-winning, London-based designer’s work inspires with 500 color photographs of Hoppen’s favorite projects from her 40-year career, and depicts the evolution of her East-meets-West approach and focus on clean lines and opulence."
    —Modern Luxury Interiors (Atlanta)

    Cottages & Gardens / New York 

    "The book offers an inside look into the world of interior design, through the eyes and experience of Kelly. Her signature style of pairing simplicity and luxury is seen page by page, as she provides advice on achieving your own signature style. Different than her prior books, Kelly Hoppen: The Art of Interior Design operates as part coffee table design book, part text book with all the tips and guidelines for starting a design project, understanding the key issues and design principles applicable to the space, to finally decorating and furnishing the room."

    "The imagery in this autobiography-meets-lookbook is so appealing that it borders on too extravagant. "
    —Metrosource NY

    "I may not master these design skills but Kelly Hoppen certainly does own these skillz like nobodies business. I am always amazed by her work and how she can elevate any space without such a neutral palette. Kelly’s latest book does not disappoint."
