Anouska Hempel is one of the world's most celebrated designers. Her work spans architecture, interior and furniture design, haute couture, fashion, garden and product design. As a hotelier, she has owned, designed and managed three award winning boutique hotels (Blakes London, Blakes Amsterdam, The Hempel). Her philosophy comes from her own lifestyle which is utopian. A fusion of west meets east pervades her design whether it is a classical or contemporary feel.
