British decorator with a world famous nameKelly Hoppen is sure: everyone can create the perfect interior. Her theory is backed up by the regular release of books with helpful advice, and today we share with you the best of them. The famous Englishwoman Kelly Hoppen started her career the first time when her family friends entrusted her to decorate their kitchen. Since then, Kelly's passion for design has not diminished, and her name has become truly world famous. Like any master of her craft, she is not afraid to share professional secrets and periodically releases books with design and decorating tips that are available to everyone. We chose the nine best recommendations of the famous decorator with its interiors as practical examples and suggest starting to follow them as soon as possible. No. 1.Listen to Yourself There are a huge number of interior styles, and trends in the design world change every season. It is possible that a bedroom in the style of a friend's apartment looks amazing, but if your soul lies in more restrained classics or minimalism, such an interior is unlikely to please you. That is why Kelly Hoppen first of all urges to listen to yourself and be guided by your taste, especially since, as you know, they do not argue about him. No. 2.Movement is life In this case, of course, we are talking about movement within your interior. A simple rearrangement of furniture or even little things on it can already significantly change the situation, sometimes better than any repair. When working with accessories, Kelly advises to first spread them all on the floor, and then pick up a new place for them, without looking back at the previous composition. No. 3.Don't forget the walls Walls are the secret weapon of any room if used wisely. Large paintings, photographs, witty posters and original art objects - all this will easily transform the room, make the interior more interesting and dramatic. The main thing is not to overdo it and not hang the pictures too high so that you don't have to lift your head every time. No. 4.Make your kitchen fashionable There are several tricks that will help you with this. Firstly, select an interesting and original technique, since today you can find not only standard models, but also designer works of unusual colors and shapes. Secondly, make sure that the apron is not only easy to clean, but also beautiful, and in some cases an accent element of the interior. And of course, don't forget about bright kitchen textiles. In a laconic kitchen, you can rely on natural materials and elegant shapes. No. 5.Work with lighting Lighting is one of the most important things in Kelly Hoppen's interiors. She treats him extremely reverently and recommends everyone to do the same. Experiment with lighting scenarios, choose unusual and bright lights, and also, advises Kelly, try to direct the light from top to bottom: this way objects will cast beautiful shadows. No. 6.Use niches Niches - by no means a flaw in the layout, but a real gift for any interior. This is automatically additional storage space, as well as the ability to create a center of attraction in the interior. Build open niches or shelves and store your favorite books, figurines, candles and small houseplants on them. And do not forget about the main rule: the things located nearby should be diverse in shape, texture, and size. No. 7.Arrange regular shopping The interior does not require weekly or even monthly updates, but from time to time Kelly recommends making at least small purchases and delighting yourself with fashionable novelties. To pick up new curtains for the wallpaper, the decorator assures, is no more difficult than shoes for a purse or vice versa. Follow trends and new collections in glossy magazines or online publications and choose what you like. No. 8.Decorate the table A coffee table can be found in almost any living room, and Kelly Hoppen believes that it is not just a piece of furniture, but a portrait of the owner. That is why you should not store old magazines or coffee mugs on it. Go for the decor: choose one that reflects your character through colors, composition and objects that are dear to your heart. You can make an additional emphasis on the table with the help of a tray, placing all the things on it. No. 9.Mix textures A truly interesting and voluminous interior is made up not only of the right combination of colors and decor items. It is very important to mix textures: without fear, mix wood and metal, glass and natural stone, porcelain and brass, glossy and matte fabrics in the same room.
