Louisa Lawless's home is a study in understated style, with personal effects adding character and telling the story of her family's origins and interests.
Most of us have fond memories of our first homes because of the memories held within – and not necessarily because of the aesthetic. When interior designer Louisa Lawless and her husband first moved to Hong Kong from their hometown of Sydney almost a decade ago, they landed in a poky flat in Causeway Bay that she remembers for its less-than-stellar view of the opposite building’s concrete facade and the bizarre tendency for objects to plummet from the upper floors. When the couple decided to expand their family, they realised it was high time to move.
"My husband was definitely in charge," recalls Louisa of their hunt for a new apartment. "He knew what he wanted and found it. We liked this space, its facilities, its green outlook and its proximity to Central – it just felt like a home." Indeed, the flat’s sprawling layout provides ample space for the couple’s three young children to play, for entertaining friends and family, and for Louisa to oversee her newly established business: Trunked by Louisa Lawless, a line of luxury jewellery storage trunks.
