Meet the Designer

Through a curated design narrative, Louise specialises in concept development, placemaking and curating spaces that ignite feelings of joy.

After 10 years in the Communications and Public Relations industry and an exciting adventure of renovating houses, Louise decided to unleash her inner entrepreneur and turn her passion for design into a profession.

Louise’s unwavering commitment and genuine connection to her clients ensures a collaborative design process and outcome that reflects the client's personality and brand.

 

Her career could be described as a fusion of purpose and passion, particularly following her leukaemia diagnosis at the age of 18. Starting Louise Mackay Interior Design ensures that she can form a career that makes a difference through philanthropy, action and social good. Louise works closely with charities and not-for-profits to design with heart, compassion and hope.

 

Louise has an extensive background in the creative industries, with a career spanning over ten years in the Communications, Public Relations, Marketing and Graphic Design sectors.
