MEET HAYLEY

Hayley-Anne Brown is fully qualified with a BVDA (Bachelor of Interior Design graduating with Honours) and has been in the design industry for over ten years. After working in various design industries, abroad and locally, Hayley founded Lou Brown Design.

Hayley strongly believes the key to creating timeless and bespoke interiors, is to draw inspiration from the project's context rather than transient trends. She looks to the home's architecture, surrounding landscape, community and, most importantly, her clients' experiences and lifestyle for stimulus to develop a unique interior.

This design philosophy, combined with a broad range of expertise, gives Hayley the ability to create a wide variety of elegant yet practical interiors.

Testimonials

"Hayley is a very talented designer and I have had the pleasure of contracting Hayley to create some amazing spaces and stylish interiors.
She is able to understand the functional elements required of the design and convert these into spaces that work for all those using them. Hayley has helped me to push the boundaries of interior design and to step outside my comfort zone to try some exciting concepts. This has produced fantastic results that I love. She has vision and wonderful customer service.
It is a pleasure to have Hayley work her magic."
Cherie, Ardmore

I needed help with the finishing touches on my new home, particularly for the kitchen, dining and lounge area, bedrooms and ensuite. I also needed help with spatial layout. Hayley was totally amazing and has created a look and feel for my new home that I simply could not have achieved on my own. She has helped me create a sophisticated, warm and rich living environment that I absolutely love, exceeding all my expectations. Hayley's communication was superb, she always offered options and she learned from the choices I made what would and wouldn't work for me. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Farley, Swanson

We used Lou Brown Design and found them to be fantastic!

First they brought some amazing ideas for our professional industrial work space. The look was very upmarket and the use of strong colours really lifted the space.

We then engaged them to help with finishing touches at our Country home. The ideas were right on brief and Hayley was super organised co-ordinating samples and going above and beyond the brief. We are delighted with the result in both spaces and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lou Brown Design for any project!

Vicelich - Waimauku

We found Hayley to be very in tune with our requirements and knowledgeable about current trends, fashions, furnishings and colours. We felt she understood our brief and she could envisage a plan that was within our budget and our expected timelines.
She was extremely positive, full of great ideas and a joy to work with. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her services to other clients. She is a real gem and one we look forward to working with again in the future. You will not regret working with Hayley. She is a delight to work with and has such a positive attitude and displays real passion and enjoyment in what she does.

We needed help after living in our home for a year and still being undecided on what we should do. Hayley came along and listened to our likes and dislikes. She came back to us with the ideas and we loved them all. She is extremely talented at adding colour and texture and blending it with features we already had in our rooms.

Hayley is professional and we love the new look she gave to our home and all our friends agree - she did a fantastic job.

Sparnon - Coatesville

"As a team of one, Hayley, concepted, researched, drafted, designed, engineered, commissioned, displayed and managed the furniture and sublime student areas for MIT Manukau. The building is stunning but it's the brilliantly thought-out enclaves of brightly coloured, quirky furniture that make the students feel welcome, relaxed and proud to be studying in such an uber cool school. On behalf of MIT's leadership team, thank you for your contribution to MIT this year."
Pip, Director, Auckland

We started working with Hayley from Lou Brown Design in January 2016 and couldn't have found a better match for turning our very empty and under-attended living room into a joyous space for the whole family. My partner and I are both very strong-minded people with quite diverging artistic and style senses. We were able to address this with Hayley very early in the process and she was magically able to meet our both needs and the room became a truly shared project over several months. Today, we both feel well reflected in the different furnitures, materials, fabrics as well as artistic and decor elements. Even the kids are drawn to the space and every guest has been very complimenting on our accomplishment. I strongly believe that we couldn't have done it without Hayley's very professional, warm, and thoughtful approach. She brings just the right balance of expertise, respectful advice, and also open-mindedness to the process. She always knew when we'd benefit from some guidance and when it was better to let us 'get our way,' so we could be happy with the end result. She gave us some great impulses that we would not have thought of by ourselves--like wall coloring with acid treatment, which gives it a fascinating effect--and she also valued that we (especially my partner) had some pretty unusual design ideas that allowed us to add some unique touches as well. We love the new space and we highly recommend Hayley as a partner for any such interior design initiative. We will happily come back to her in the future and actually have already done so with respect to adding some cushion elements to our outdoor space.

Levinson - Northshore

"I would love to recommend Hayley for her interior design ideas - she was a delight to work with and has delivered a beautiful interior for me. I had seen Hayley's work before engaging her, and knew she would listen to my ideas and preferences and that she would make some great choices for me. Thanks Hayley."
Karen, Mairangi Bay

We were very pleased with Hayley-Anne's ideas for our apartment and with the very attractive results now it is finished.  Hayley-Anne has a keen eye for detail and managed to highlight the artwork we had to great effect. Her colour sense is artistic and very successful. Hayley's-Anne is a very pleasant person to work with.

Thank you Hayley-Anne.

Everitt, Newton

"Over the past few years I've worked with Hayley on several interior projects and whether they're large or small I found her to be professional, customer focused and a great listener. Her knowledge of current market trends is evident, as well as having an amazing talent for turning recycled materials into fabulous pieces of furniture. It's always an absolute pleasure working with her."
Donna, Manukau

For our architecturally designed Queenstown property we wanted special interiors.  Hayley listened to us and came up with stunning colour palettes which we are extremely happy with.  At all times, she was professional and imaginative while working within budget.

Freeman, Ardmore

Hayley has a great eye for colours and textures, she listens to the client's wants and needs, and provides great ideas in all areas of interior design.
She has an outstanding ability to reshape and renew pre-loved items, actually getting 'hands on' in the refurbishment phase and will also make a bespoke piece of furniture to finish the look like our much loved recycled timber kitchen table.
I would definitely recommend Hayley to family, friends and anyone who needs a helping hand in creating their own piece of heaven.

My husband and I are delighted with the results Hayley Brown has achieved while assisting with our Interior Design.

Hayley has brought colour, character and depth to our home by bringing together our existing style and decoration, with individually chosen furniture, paint colours and accessories to create a result to be proud of.

We highly recommend Lou Brown Design.
