Sienna Miller snubbed the services of her mother-in-law Kelly Hoppen’s interior design firm and instead asked a director friend to decorate her cottage.
The actress, 40, chose her friend Gaby Dellal, 61, who apparently has the ‘best taste’ of anyone Sienna has ‘ever met’, to renovate her Buckinghamshire cottage – despite her stepmother being a world famous designer.
But while her stepdaughter may prefer to take the advice of others, it seems Kelly, 63, still has some high-profile fans in the form of Boy George.

Richard Eden of the Daily Mail reports that after peeking at Kelly’s £12.5million mansion, singer Boy George ‘fell in love with it’ and commissioned her to redevelop his own Gothic style in North London in the same way.
The Culture Club singer, 61, told Kelly: “I want you to redo my house and I want it to look exactly like this.”
Meanwhile, Sienna recently showed off her recently refurbished 16th century thatched cottage in the Buckinghamshire countryside in the latest Architectural Summary.
The actress, who bought the mansion when she was 25, said of her home: “It was a time when the press spoke to me a lot and I wanted a place to get away from it all.” I bought the house on a whim, it offers sanctuary.

“I also wanted a place where family and friends could gather. It has a nurturing feeling; it’s a house with a heart.
And while said family members may include Kelly, Sienna firmly told the publication that “I wanted a Gaby house!” referring to the director’s homes in London and Cornwall.
While Gaby said of the project, which was completed during the 2020 lockdown: “What was beautiful was that she just trusted me, and we had an agreement that she wasn’t not allowed there for six months until I complete the project.”
Kelly married Sienna’s investment banker father, Ed Miller, in 1989, when the actress was just six and her sister Savannah was seven.
Despite Ed’s divorce in 2003, the entrepreneur has remained close to her former stepchildren.
Speaking about her relationship with Savannah and Sienna in Mail on Sunday’s YOU magazine in 2020, Kelly said: “She [Savannah] and her sister (actress) Sienna are and always will be two of the most precious people in my life – even though I have been divorced from their father Edwin for 17 years.
“She calls me Mama K and I call her Sasa. She and Sienna always send me cards and flowers on Mother’s Day, which really means a lot to me.
Meanwhile, Sienna recently enjoyed a getaway to the South of France with her model boyfriend Oli Green.
