British designer Kelly Hoppen's townhome (enviously located near London's Portobello Road market) was a gut rehab. It's featured in the upcoming December issue of Metropolitan Home and naturally, it's pretty amazing. We love how Hoppen does black, white and silver. She gets them to look amazingly warm and rich - in this house, its all about the reflections...
In Metropolitan Home, she discusses the ways that working on her own home benefits her work. We had to chuckle at one of her quotes from the article on this subject - she says, "feeling vulnerable about spending buckets of money really keeps me in tune with my clients" !
Photos shown above, left to right:
1. According to the article, Hoppen's new living room occupies the entire second floor of the townhouse. Our favorite features: The black lining on the gold silk drapes, the fireplace wall covered in a reflective glass and the small sculptural Christian Liagere tables.
2. This black & white kitchen manages to look both fresh and just a little bit 80s (in a good way, of course). The vintage stools look fantastic and the sliver globe lighting is classic.
3. The dining room is slightly more rustic and homey, while still keeping up the glam. It features pendants by Kevin Reilly and Christian Liagere seating.
Check out the entire feature (by Linda O'Keefe, photographed by David Garcia) in the December issue of Metropolitan Home, on sale November 17.
