Last week I featured a beautiful English seaside cottage designed by Louise Jones. Charmed by her work, I decided to further pursue her vast portfolio. Based in London, Louise brings a fresh approach to classicism with her use of furniture and furnishings spanning the centuries. She shirks fashion trends and fads, yet embraces the idea of comfort as the indispensable bedrock of personal happiness.
Louise began her career in accounting, but she quickly found it was not her calling. After 18 months, she enrolled in a year-long course at the Inchbald School of Design. She then went on to work at Chelsea Textiles before answering a job advertisement for an accountant at Todhunter Earle. “My sister suggested it might be a way of getting into the design side of the business, and that’s what happened,” Louise told House & Garden. After eight instructive years, Louise branched out on her own in 2001.
In her 21 years as an interior designer, Louise has worked for clients in her home country and around the world. Her work has been featured in publications such as House & Garden, The Sunday Times, Architectural Digest, Living Etc., and Country Life. Louise has been listed in House & Garden’s Top 100 Designers for the last six years. Today I am sharing a few of my favorite highlights!
