Home Living : May 8th 2012
MB HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, 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. Seen any great ideas?
