Kelly Hoppen designs interiors for Celebrity Cruises' new ship
February 15, 2019: Putting her mark on the oceans, British interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE has designed spaces for Celebrity Edge - the new ship by Celebrity Cruises.
Pushing the boundaries of cruise ship design, the incredibly popular and renowned Ms. Hoppen and visionary architect Tom Wright have mastered the exciting yet comfortable essence that defines Celebrity's modern luxury style. American interior designer Nate Berkus is Celebrity Edge's design ambassador.
Ms. Hoppen’s signature design philosophy and neutral palette can be seen on the ship’s staterooms, layered with small punchy accents of bright colours. Her design board included two Iconic Suites situated above the ship’s bridge spanning over 2,600 sq. ft. with two-bedrooms, two-bathrooms and mind- blowing views thanks to panoramic windows that envelop their dining room, living room and bedrooms. The 700 sq. ft. veranda will offer a 270-degree view of the ocean.
Another new Suite Class will comprise of six split-level Edge Villas, which will offer stunning views from two stories of windows, private plunge pools and direct walk-out access to The Retreat Sundeck. These villas are literally situated at the edge of the Celebrity Edge.
Ms. Hoppen also designed two two-bedroom, two-bathroom Penthouse Suites with large soaking tubs on the veranda, large dual walk-through showers, and expansive walk-in closets, and the 146 large, outward-facing Sky Suites
The designer’s love of clean lines, geometric pattern, texture and vintage glamour has given the suites bespoke pieces of iconic furniture and the designer’s signature bed runners, curtains with contrasting borders, wrap details and stunning paneling.
The Penthouse’s carefree and relaxed interiors will remind you of Santorini, Greece. The beautiful crisp blues and sculptural lighting, specifically created for the ship, compliment the stunning pieces of art and accessories that have been handpicked for the space. An extraordinary trunk, for example, which was found during Ms. Hoppen’s travels brings a personal touch to the penthouse. An extraordinary bathroom suite will allow to truly relax.
The pods within the Luminae Restaurant create a city feel and the organic blossom lights that unfold above the tables open up the space. Different finishes include beautiful marble inlays at the entrance. Curated art works selected for the restaurant and wood paneling gives it warmth. The spa at Celebrity Edge showcases organic marble wood that will automatically makes you feel relaxed and serene.
Celebrity Edge is sailing on Caribbean and European itineraries.
