Hello, I’m Catherine Lepreux and I’m a professional yet creative and friendly curtain maker.
I help private clients in Edinburgh, Fife, St Andrews and Perthshire who value a high level of personal service to dress their windows with bespoke handmade curtains and blinds.
Using my creativity to make your home décor work for you while reflecting your personal taste, style and budget, is a challenge I enjoy.
Also, it can be tricky to select colours which look “right” in the Scottish light. I understand how colours work and will help you have confidence in your choices.
Clients tell me they value my flexible “can do” approach, my attention to detail and that I take care of the practicalities of making a project happen.
Additionally, they appreciate the continuity that comes from my team and me handling their project from start to finish. I love seeing a client’s happy smile at the end of a project!
Colours, fabrics & textures
Even as a child, I was always fascinated by colours, fabrics and textures. And thanks to my mother and aunt, who were both excellent dressmakers, I learned early on how to take a piece of fabric and turn it into something fabulous.
So it wasn’t really a surprise when my first handmade curtains launched me into learning everything there is to know about curtains, blinds, soft furnishings as well as interior design and leaving my career in banking & finance to start Catherine Lepreux Interiors.
Since 2011, I’ve been helping home-owners refresh their window treatments, dress their challenging, unusually shaped period windows and generally helped them create a comfortable home for themselves and their family.
