Her pared-down interiors call to mind the most elegant of hotels, but have all the comforts of home. Louise Bradley’s core style includes
subtle neutrals, but she likes to evolve the palette ‘by adding tonal layers through texture, lighting and accessories’. She’s great for statement lights, accent colours and state-of-the-art kitchens.
Louise opened a small interiors shop in Walton Street, SW3, in 1991. Today, she oversees a thriving design studio and furniture showroom in Brompton Cross, where her team of 35 includes designers, interior architects, textile designers, graphic designers and project managers. Louise also has a furniture range.
Current commissions include a flat in Knightsbridge, several luxury newbuild developments in London and a listed country estate. Recently completed projects include a family house in Notting Hill, a chalet in Switzerland and a large contemporary house just outside London.
