Hoppen Perfection

Kelly Hoppen, one of our favourite internationally renown interior designers, seen here is her dining room for her obviously many friends. What she does and executes well is repetitiveness and dramatic pieces. This dining setting would still look great without the two animal print carvers at each end but with them,  it finishes off the room with a difference and sets it aside from your average room.

The zebra on the floor links the print on the chairs and the black and white theme (walls & floors, chairs, prints) in together and acts as a central piece as the room is very symmetrical. I am a big fan of neutral colours accented with one colour, in this case the yellow on the table, making that stand out more than if there was more colour. I'm not 100% sold on the hanging light pendant as it is not an eye catching piece, but if it was it would take away from the rest of the room, and the colour softens the harsh black and white along with the carver chairs. Floor mirrors always make a room look bigger and add an extra bit of bling, I love how she has put it long ways rather than the usual upright elongating the length of the dining table and the room. I'd like to have the space to do this sort of setting, and when you break it down there isn't that much in here and not overly difficult to achieve.
