Born and raised in London, Louisa’s unique background and sensibility marry a deep, keen knowledge of art with the technical draftsmanship of designing garments. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied Art History and Fine Arts, and spending several years at Sotheby’s, she co-founded Guy French, a line of tailored jackets for women that attracted the attention of the New York Times and Women's Wear Daily.
In 2013, after years of turning her artistic eye to interiors as a side gig for friends and in her own apartments, Louisa was one of the first designers to join Homepolish. There she honed her talents and broadened her client base, enabling her to turn interior design into her full-time passion.
Louisa’s signature spaces are polished and practical, lovely and livable – and always a touch of whimsy. Through her painterly lens, she sees the potential in the unusual: pairing modern pieces with vintage and family heirlooms to create a unique look that’s totally personalized for her clients. Given her background, she naturally has a strong focus on wall art, sourcing works from a wide base of emerging and established artists.
