Louise Putman, REcreate Interiors, qualified architectural interior designer

Louise putman BA(Hons)

I am a fully qualified architectural interior designer with  BA(Hons) degree and 30 years industry experience.

I will help you understand and appreciate how the space within your property could be better utilised to suit your lifestyle. By challenging how the space is used and offering solutions, which you may not have previously considered, I can change the balance of your property for the better and ultimately improve your everyday wellbeing. I love working closely with my clients to realise timeless, understated design projects.

I offer complete personalised commissions and only take on a limited number of projects at a time to ensure my clients receive an exclusive service.

Beyond interior design

The service I offer from my consultancy, REcreate, crosses the boundaries of traditional design specialisms such as architecture, interior design and spatial design.

I combine my architectural knowledge with interior design expertise and project management to design or renovate internal spaces. The scope of my work can include spatial design, structural alterations, full house renovations, fixed finishes, fixtures and fittings and project management.

My background

I have a BA(Hons) degree in Interior Architecture and Furniture, from Middlesex University, London. I also studied interior space, furniture and product design at L’ENSCI Les Atelier in Paris, with world renowned designer Philippe Starck.

My career has spanned from TV set design at the BBC in the 1990’s, commercial interior design consultancy at several leading multi-disciplinary architectural design consultancies in London, including heading up the design studio at multinational property consultancy Cushman & Wakefield and launching REcreate Interiors in 2009.


I work hard to ensure that the interior spaces I create reflect the personality, needs and style of my clients. They showcase clients’ personal objects and enrich the architecture of the space they live in. That said, I like to create  relaxed interiors with a mix of mid-century, classic, simple Scandi designs and contemporary styles.

I steer clear of brash or overly designed or ‘fashionable’ spaces, preferring durable, simple and understated luxury which will stand the test of time.
