Dior Cruise Show
3 Jun 2016
This week I had the privilege of being invited to the Dior Cruise Show at Blenheim Palace. As always the attention to detail was amazing; from the journey on the Dior Express, to the exhibition of the last show held in 1954 and the stunning New Collection with its wonderful style and mix of colour. It really was a beautiful day from one of my favourite fashion houses.

Marni and Bottega Veneta in Milan
6 Oct 2014Now that all the shows are over, I've been scanning vogue.com to check out what my favourite designers are planning for Spring - I loved the collections from Marni and Bottega Veneta in Milan.
A great Monaco Yacht Show
2 Oct 2014The Monaco Yacht Show was a great success and it was lovely meeting with the amazing teams of people who make some of the most outstanding boats in the world. We were privy to the plans to build the first IMAX cinema on a super yacht. The room being entirely surrounded by screens capable of displaying what underwater cameras would be capturing immediately outside the hull, when not showing the latest blockbuster movies!
We also had a chance to see the new Monaco Yacht Club designed by Norman Foster which is a truly outstanding design - an inspiration!
Home Cinema- the perfect way to pass an Autumnal evening
29 Sep 2014Many of our clients are now asking for a home cinema as an integral part of their home. I was therefore delighted when Crestron in conjunction with Louise Bradley, won the IDA Award for Best Home Cinema. We designed the new Crestron showroom in Chelsea Harbour recently and the cinema room has been much admired.
Monaco Yacht Show
26 Sep 2014I don't need an excuse to head to the sunshine and am delighted to have worked with Crestron, designing and furnishing their stand at MYS. This is the first yacht show for Louise Bradley and I am looking forward to seeing some of the incredible interiors on the world's most extravagant super yachts.
24 Sep 2014I have been out and about during Design Week and also over to Decorex to catch up with various people and see what's new. Always a busy time but good to see so much creativity and the industry showing the world what we do.....
A very busy summer.....
23 Sep 2014It's been a busy few months!! The team at Louise Bradley has been working on several exciting projects in the UK and overseas as well as creating some stunning new pieces for the Furniture and Accessory collections.
You will see some of the new images on our website.
Refresh your home for Spring..
20 Mar 2014Spring is definitely in the air and with the clear blue skies and new foliage appearing it seems like the perfect time to introduce some light linens or pastel tones into our homes. This week we have done just this and given our Walton Street Showroom a spring refresh combining soft green fabrics with a range of beautiful new accessories, such a simple way to revive any space and help shake off the passing winter.
12 Mar 2014I’m excited to drop in to the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour this week to see what Design Week has to offer! I love the buzz that Design Week brings and especially the chance to view all of the beautiful products available. I would absolutely recommend finding some time to drop by!
London Fashion Week
20 Feb 2014I have been keeping a close eye on the shows at London Fashion Week, and my highlight has to be Tom Ford's show yesterday. Tom has been a long time favourite of mine, and his show was chic and demure, with lots of monchrome and clever use of pattern and colour to highlight shape - a great success!
14 Feb 2014We are delighted with the monies raised for the very dedicated charity Médecins Sans Frontières and would like to thank each of you who made a purchase from Louise Bradley in the run up to Christmas. Every item sold helped us to raise this donation which has been gratefully received.
‘Thank you for the generous donation from the Louise Bradley Sales department for our Philippines appeal in response to the typhoon in November 2013. The link below will give you more detail about the work we have done and continue to deliver in the region.’
It seems uncanny that in November we were watching this disaster unfold overseas and now we have our own severe floods leaving families without their homes. Our thoughts go out to everyone who has been and is currently affected by this.

We have a range of beautiful gifts, including these stunning silver and croc leather picture frames or these elegant shagreen trinket boxes. Perfect for him or for her!
David Bailey at the National Portrait Gallery
7 Feb 2014I am very excited about yesterday’s opening of the David Bailey Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. One of the world’s most well-known and distinctive photographers, he has photographed so many interesting people from such different walks of life. I love his ability to create such iconic portraits, capturing within each one the very essence of his subject. I will definitely be passing by to take a look.
Brighten up your Month!
3 Feb 2014February can always seem the longest month even though it’s the shortest! So why not brighten up your living space with a colourful accessory from the LB Collection. We have an array of stunning pieces in our newly refurbished Walton Street Showroom - perfect as a pick me up for you and your home!
Happy Chinese New Year!
30 Jan 2014The Year of the Horse
These stunning sculptured horses are all unique and currently available in the LB showrooms.
28 Jan 2014Here’s a glimpse of the Hunting Lodge, part of an ongoing project that the LB design team are currently working on. It was such a lovely interior to design as the style of the lodge was somewhat different to what we have been designing recently. I loved mixing modern pieces of furniture and accessories with rustic textures and rich cashmeres in warm and soothing tones, it all combined to create the perfect country retreat!
She's Growing Up So Fast!
20 Jan 2014Little Ellie is growing up so quickly and full of mischief as always, here she is with a rather guilty looking face after chewing her bed! She’s keeping us all absolutely entertained here in the LB Design Studio!
17 Jan 2014This week has been a busy one with a site visit in Gstaad. It’s lovely to be doing a Chalet, using lots of beautiful textures and warm colours that create a comfortable cosy feel. As you can see this is the view from the windows! Magical!
I stayed at the beautiful Alpina Hotel, and would definitely recommend taking a peek http://www.thealpinagstaad.ch
Featured in the Financial Times!
14 Jan 2014I was delighted that the Lyon Armchair was chosen to be featured in the FT How to Spend It ‘Electibles’ page last weekend – a beautiful addition to the page and an equally beautiful addition to your home!
A Great Start to 2014!
10 Jan 2014I was lucky enough to start 2014 surrounded by the stunning nature and tranquillity of the beautiful Maldives. Such an incredible place! I managed to find the time to recharge after a hectic 2013, ready for an exciting 2014 filled with new projects, new designs and new ideas!
2 Jan 2014It is back to work for most of the Louise Bradley team today, but we want to say a very 'Happy New Year' to everyone following Louise on social media. It was a brilliant 2013, with the LB fabric collection launch, Crestron showroom opening, and Walton Street refurbishment all taking up lots of time and energy, but everyone is rightly proud of the progress made. Here's to an even better 2014!
23 Dec 2013Louise Bradley and the teams at both Kimbolton Court and Walton Street would like to wish clients, customers, suppliers and friends a very Merry Christmas. We are looking forward to a break after another successful and busy year, and hope you all get to relax in style during the holidays.
