Marni and Bottega Veneta in Milan

Now that all the shows are over, I've been scanning 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

The 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

Many 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

I 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.

Refresh your home for Spring..

Spring 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.

London Fashion Week

I 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!

Thank You!

We 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.

David Bailey at the National Portrait Gallery

I 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.

Hunting Lodge

Here’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!

Beautiful Chalet

This 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

A Great Start to 2014!

I 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!

Welcome Back!

It 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!
