Louise Hurlbutt, the founder of Hurlbutt Designs, has traveled the world with a keen eye for design. From mud huts in Afghanistan to New York, from Tokyo to London and everywhere in between Louise and her husband Ralph have lived and worked and embraced the local culture. This breadth of experience has made Louise a creative, dynamic and innovative designer. Her love of art and antiques, coupled with classic design training in London and her extensive travel come together in her beautiful and innovative design work.

Louise became interested in design while working in Tokyo for the internationally renowned fashion designer, Hanae Mori. In the mid 70's she studied at the New York School of Design and then took full advantage her husband Ralph's five year stint in London with Mellon Bank where she studied at the Inchbald School of Design.

Louise has worked on projects throughout New England, Pennsylvania, Florida, London and New York. Her interior design work has been featured in many well-known publications, including Better Homes and Garden, Country Living, Hamptons Magazine, Maine Home+Design and Accent Magazine.
