soft furnishings - interiors
Whether you are looking for a single roman blind or pair of curtains, or are redecorating an entire home,
I will create beautifully designed soft furnishings to suit your style; I offer a unique and personalised service for every client, beginning with a free online or in person consultation.
Each blind, curtain and cushion is lovingly handmade in my independent workshop in Tavistock; traditional techniques are paired with the best in modern mechanisms, creating a clean and stylish finish.
Blinds, cushions and curtains, lovingly

"Soft Furnishings And Interiors That Will
Perfectly Suit Your Windows"
Nathan McCarter Joinery is a humble, yet progressive joinery business in Tavistock.
They recommend me to all their window clients as well as use them in their home.
They recently wrote a blog post about me and my work. Read it here.
My curtains are made with a range of
hand-made headings. Each curtain is
tailor-made to suit your needs with a range of lining choices. I can source, supply and fit a wide range of well-made, stylish poles, ensuring a unique and gorgeous finish
for your home.
I am often asked to use offcuts of fabric to make matching cushions and window seats. I use cushions pads, filled with the best quality European duck down.
Style variations can include zips, buttons and contrasting piping.
My beautiful blinds are fitted with child-safe chain systems. Each blind comes with a wide range of lining choices and trims. Rod pockets are sewn into the lining, which is hand-stitched to the fabric face, creating a perfect finish with no visible stitching.
This is the time to discuss style, colour, fabric, curtain poles and accessories, and measure up your space.
Some clients already have an idea of the fabrics they would like to use, while others prefer guidance.
You’ll receive a quote outlining the design choices made at the initial consultation.
Once this has been agreed and your deposit has cleared, I’ll order your fabrics, poles and tracks and the make up process begins.
Each pair of curtains and roman blind is handmade to the highest quality using a mixture of traditional and modern sewing techniques.
When your work is completed, it will be installed by myself or by one of my experienced fitters.
Caring for the planet is at the
heart of my workshop practice.
Sustainability is at the heart of my practice: everything made here is designed to last. Over the years, I have been asked by several customers to revamp a treasured pair of curtains, and have been happy to turn these into blinds and cushions, preserving beautiful fabrics and giving them a new lease of life.
