Led by my passion for tailored design

My lifelong passion for fabrics and working with them has been with me since I got my first sewing machine aged 11. My early interest in dressmaking developed into making curtains and blinds over 30 years ago initially on a part-time basis alongside a full-time job at British Airways.

After leaving the airline to become a full-time mum to two beautiful children, I went back to college to study Interior Design. This was followed by further study at the National Design Academy and a chance to work for a company that specialised in high quality traditional hand-made soft furnishings followed. I’ve been fortunate enough to learn my trade from some of the best and to develop my passion for soft furnishings at the highest level.

I set up in2interiors in 2003 and have since expanded the business by bringing together a dedicated team of expert curtain, blind makers and fitters to produce window treatments to a high standard. The quality of the service I offer was recognised in November 2023 when I was awarded Best Business in Ashford/Stanwell and Best Retail Excellence Award at the prestigious Spelthorne Business Awards ceremony. I was also a runner up in the Best Innovative/Creative Business category.

Fast forward to today and I’m still just as passionate and committed to meeting new customers and translating their dreams and expectations into beautiful new window dressings that are designed to transform a room.
