“My new home is outside London, in the heart of the British countryside full of rich history and the beautiful outdoors,” says the multi-awarded visual storyteller, speaking of her abode that she describes as “escapism, an opportunity to pause and is reflective of her change of lifestyle since the pandemic”.
A spacious entrance with beautiful, vaulted ceilings and original wooden beams welcome one into the property. An imposing white hanging lamp, above a sweeping staircase in darker tones matching the flooring, easily catches attention. Beside the staircase, Hoppen’s private collection of matt-finish ceramic vases with dried twigs and flowers reinforces the natural feel of the space.
“For my barn in particular I have used my signature experimentation by merging tactile materials and textures,” says the designer, whose personal style is grounded in a delicately balanced combination of East meets West. “I love the timeless marriage of the sleek and simple yet luxurious lines and shapes of the West, with the texture, depth and richness of the East, to create a truly modern look,” she explains.
