Kelly and her family are on a much deserved holiday in Mauritius at the moment so as it’s nearly the end of 2010 I thought I’d post a quick recap of her higlights over the last year.
2010 has been a busy year for Kelly beyond her day job as a leading interior designer working with clients across the globe she released a range of furniture with Halo
introduced a new wallpaper collection with Graham & Brown
and added to her range of home fragrances with Welton London.
She also branched out producing a collection of luxury organic clothing with Earth Couture the sales of which help stop the spread of AIDS and Malaria in Africa.
She also broke new ground in the interiors world be releasing her ‘Home Style by Kelly Hoppen’ app which aside from having a chic design gives great tips and tricks for styling your bedroom, kitchen, shelves and table settings.
Needless to say Kelly has been speaking about her projects to journalists but she also made a big effort to fully embrace her move to digital and set an example for other designers so she reached out to some great design bloggers in the UK and US. Here is a recap of some great articles and blog posts that have come out over the past 6 months…happy reading!
