Interior: Louise Bradley (Hardcover)
Louise Bradley has been designing timeless, elegant interiors for thirty years. Her distinctive style - combining classic influences with a contemporary edge - has secured her position as one of the UK's leading interior designers, and has won her international recognition. Today, Louise's name is synonymous with relaxed luxury, and she has designed significant residential projects across the globe. Richly illustrated throughout, Interior: Louise Bradley is the first in-depth exploration of Louise's work, and provides a fascinating insight into her design process and the thinking behind a variety of her most accomplished projects. The featured homes include historic London townhouses, a lofty apartment, sophisticated pieds- -terre, an Edwardian country house, opulent villas in Kuwait and an Alpine ski chalet, as well as Louise's own homes - an oasis of calm in the city and a cosy country retreat. Regardless of the type of project, Louise seeks always to be respectful of the architecture and to uphold and enhance the context and natural setting of a building. Her approach is to create tranquil, supremely comfortable and harmonious spaces that effortlessly combine custom-made furniture and accessories, unique finishes and state-of-the-art technology. While each project is individual, Louise generally prefers a muted, neutral colour palette, one that allows the beauty of a room to unfurl through the use of carefully layered materials, beautiful lighting and strategically placed signature pieces, such as an oversized mirror. Louise's renowned eye for detail is explored here in four 'Elements' sections that focus on Texture, Scale, Function and Reflection. Louise has long and proudly collaborated with a range of British and European artisans and craftspeople, and the book concludes with brief overview of her London showroom, which displays an extensive selection of her furniture, soft furnishings and accessories. Devotees of Louise's 'classic contemporary' aesthetic will be enthralled to find in Interior: Louise Bradley the opportunity to discover more about her inimitable design vision and her most captivating projects.
