‘Inspired by my father’s creativity, and forever exploring his Hampstead interiors boutique when I was younger, I followed my own passion for interiors and have now been designing classic, contemporary interiors for more than 30 years,’ says Louise Bradley, who opened her first showroom on Walton Street in Knightsbridge in 1991, which specialised in antiques and accessories.

Since then, the business has grown into a large design studio and an 8,000 sq/ft flagship showroom in Brompton Cross, displaying an extensive collection of Louise Bradley furniture, accessories and fabrics set out within several different room settings. Creating harmonious and balanced spaces is the key to every design at Louise Bradley. ‘By combining elegant and sophisticated design with function, we create spaces that work for each and every client,’ she continues. ‘Synonymous with bespoke luxury residential interior design, we never compromise on quality and always aim to surpass the expectations of our clients to provide them with their dream home.’

The current focus of the practice is to look at how it can become more sustainable. By creating timeless pieces that age beautifully, Louise hopes to combat the issues seen with fast furniture and encourage a ‘slow interior design’ approach. When adding items into the furniture collection, Louise carefully considers whether they can be produced in the UK, as well as the sustainability of the materials, incorporating unique finishes such as recycled glass and sustainable timbers. A Louise Bradley fabric collection of luxury textiles is in development and will be available from the autumn. In addition, an e-commerce store is in the pipeline which will provide clients with the ability to shop from the collection at home.

Tips, Tricks & Tools

  1. ‘Always remember quality over quantity when it comes to accessorising. One unique piece can be all it takes to create a perfectly styled coffee table.’
  2. ‘A bedroom should be a sanctuary. We always make sure to use calming colour palettes to ensure maximum comfort. Indulging in luxurious bedding can also help you get a perfect night’s sleep.’
  3. ‘We love to use reflections to create the illusion of more space; our Amara Mirror is our go-to in order to achieve this.’
  4. ‘Layering textured and patterned accessories creates points of interest and helps lead the eye around the room.’
  5. ‘Adding natural materials, texture and foliage into your home creates a feeling of connection to the outdoors which positively impacts mood and wellbeing.’
