Interior Designer specialising in soft furnishings

Interior Designer (Linda Turner Interiors)

As a specialist Interior Designer I have been delivering a personalised service direct to my clients in their own homes for over 20 years. I am passionate about understanding my clients requirements and spend time in getting to know them and their lifestyle requirements.

I first started over 30 years ago as a seamstress making children's clothes. During that time I learnt about fabrics as well as different sewing and machine skills required in the industry.

I developed a flair for interior design through my experience in designing and making curtains and soft furnishings for numerous properties. I love working with fabrics and coordinating colours schemes to help create a look and style my clients desire. My work includes project management of interior design schemes from bathrooms to bedrooms and from cushions to upholstery.

I have gained an in depth knowledge of different fabrics and how best to use them. The do's and don'ts when it comes to making curtains and blinds and tips and tricks to help along the way.

I have been running my own sucessful Interior Design business for over 20 years and during that time have built up knowledge and experience of the soft furnishing industry.
