Beautifully Bespoke

Tell your story with beautiful soft furnishings as individual as you are. Choose an interior design that enables you to have the home you have always dreamt of. Based in Devon close to the picturesque North Devon coastline and stunning Exmoor National Park, I regularly work across Devon, Somerset and Dorset, and am happy to discuss projects further afield if needed.

About Us

Window dressing

Windows come in all shapes and sizes. I work with you as your personal interior designer to choose the best styles and fabrics to suit your home.

Even if you already have an idea of what you are looking for, I will work with you to make them work with the rest of your home.

Whatever style or fabric you choose, be assured that my attention to even the smallest detail, will give you the perfect results.

Seating and furniture

There is no need to dismiss old pieces of furniture, furniture upcycling is a passion of mine and I can upcycle old furniture with new upholstery giving that well-loved chair, footstool, headboard or heirloom a new lease of life.

It’s easy to change the feel of a room without replacing your much-loved items of furniture, simply let us re-upholster your item in one of our many choices of fabrics from leading design houses and have the piece of furniture you always dreamed of.

We can also add an extra dimension to your room by creating a unique window seat that is paired beautifully with your window dressings and really captures the spirit of your home.

Testimonials from our clients


I’ve commissioned a number of pieces from Louise over the last few years from cushions to curtains and her work has completely transformed my home. The quality and attention to detail has been consistently precise and often she has offered her creative eye to guide me in achieving the right look. Without a doubt I would always return to Louise for my soft furnishings.

AB - Somerset

Louise has made many roman blinds and curtains for me over the years and she is amazing. She couldn’t be more helpful or accommodating during her consultations, and is always very determined to ensure I am 100% happy before proceeding. She is my go to window dresser and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Jane Millard, Cardyl Property Ltd

When we moved into our home we knew standard sizes were not going to fit. Our worries about the right look, fabric and cost soon faded once we met Louise. She possesses a superior knowledge about soft furnishings and her attention to detail is exacting. Louise spent time with us talking through options, ordering samples and refining details. When our curtains were fitted we were so pleased with the result. We would highly recommend Louise to anyone in need of soft furnishings.
