Interior design is the art, even science, of enhancing the interiors and often exteriors of a home, or commercial premises, to achieve a visually gratifying environment for those who live or work in it.

Whilst we at Cotswold Curtains & Interiors specialise in windows and soft furnishings, our expertise in the other elements of interior and garden design is limited.

To enable us to offer a complete design package, we have teamed up with an interior designer and a garden designer, both of whom have bases in both the Cotswolds and London and are fully qualified, experienced and brilliant at what they do. Although each professional would work with you independently following the initial consultation, we would co-ordinate the operation to help ensure that your project runs smoothly, on time and within the agreed budget.

Some designers have their own style and cajole their clients into adopting that style whether they particularly like it or not. Our ethic and that of the designers we are working with is to never impose a scheme on a client, but to discover the vision in their mind and transform it into reality.

The Team

Our own Lesley Duro
