Kelly Hoppen chats about Today’s Special Value


Kelly Hoppen Leading British interior designer Kelly Hoppen is back on QVC with her second Today's Special Value – a gorgeous reversible velvet throw to enhance all of our bedrooms this Christmas and all year round.

She took some time out of her hectic schedule to give us the low-down on her newest design for QVC UK and shares Christmas décor tips. 

Tell us about Today's Special Value

It's a luxurious velvet and satin throw. It will be just perfect for transforming any bedroom into a warm and inviting place ready for the cold winter months ahead.

 How would you style the throw?

The throw is available in three colours Silver, Mink and Champagne, all of which are very neutral so will work very well with most things. However, I personally think the throw looks best when styled with a pair of the matching cushions in the same colour, and then a smaller accent cushion in a contrasting colour such as white with the Silver, aubergine with the Mink and burnt orange with the Champagne, for a warm and festive look.

Have you got any festive decor tips you can share with us?

I love this time of year and especially love preparing my home for Christmas. It's best to keep it simple - a row of over-sized silver baubles with foliage scattered down the centre of the dining table is effortless yet creates a high-impact look. I also like to fill glass vases with baubles, these look great especially when displayed in rows.

How would you prepare the guest room this Christmas?

I would focus on making it cosy and enticing through the use of throws and cushions on the bed in sumptuous materials such as velvet and faux fur. The addition of a scented candle on the bedside table and the use of warm-coloured light bulbs can also transform the ambience of the room – so much so that your guests will never want to leave.

    I was so hoping it wouldn’t be a duvet set, as I haven’t used one for months. This throw, if the price is right, will be a must have for me.

    Actually ordered two throws, in the mink and champagne. Can’t wait fir them to arrive! Good on QVC for not mentioning her association with the royal couple.
