Home Living : May 8th 2012
MB HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 8, 2012 1 THE MANHATTAN RENO PROJECT GET THAT UPTOWN MOOD Susan Redman Kelly Hoppen's classic style is a hit with celebrity A-listers on both sides of the Atlantic. THE SECRETS Coco Republic's interior designer, Jodie Kingman, reveals her Manhattan-style secrets. If a home decorator were to splash out, what are the two or three most important investment pieces that will underpin this look? A good quality wool rug -- think zebra or large geometrics in bold colours or stylised foliage designs, oversized feature table lamps and an over-scaled quirky gilt or plaster mirror will instantly lend glamour and opulence. What sort of colour palette, apart from a neutral one, adds sophistication? Combinations of corals and black, soft pinks and lilac, turquoise and orange. Use a mixture of plains and prints, with different textures. FURNISHING HILARY Swank's recently renovated Manhattan apart- ment is a statement in up- town cool. Every room in the Oscar award-winning star's new digs exhibits an immediate impression of warmth and comfort. This has been achieved by a layering of predominantly beige or neutral tones. But slightly darker mushroom- coloured furnishings and rich chocolate brown furni- ture, much of it from the Calvin Klein Home collec- tion, add sophistication. Other celebrity A-listers who go for this swanky, uptown style include Elton John and David and Vic- toria Beckham. They have commissioned the Queen of Taupe, Kelly Hoppen, to add her splash of cool-city style to many of their properties. To get this look at home, top-of-the range power pieces, including those in Kelly Hoppen's elegant col- lection, are available through Coco Republic in Sydney. But less expensive alternatives can achieve the look, too -- just make sure you anchor the whole with a couple of good-quality in- vestment pieces. At Domayne, choose from showcase options, such as the silver-studded, dove- grey Harriet armchair or the Safari linen accent chair. Freedom offers some great sofas and armchairs in the Ashbury and Ander- sen ranges.
