Hello, I’m Catherine Lepreux, an interior designer & curtainmaker in Edinburgh, Fife, St Andrews & Perth.
Sewing has always been an important part of my life. Both my mother and my aunt were excellent dressmakers and I’ve always loved taking a piece of fabric and turning it into something fabulous.
My first career was in banking and finance. But in 2011, I had the opportunity to get started on my first hand-made curtains when we added an extension to our home. And that’s when I had the idea of turning my passion into a business.
Fascinated, I learned as much as possible. How to design and make hand-sewn curtains, blinds, pelmets and cushions. And I earned a diploma in Professional Interior Design at the National Design Academy in Nottingham.
Needless to say that it wasn’t hard for me to make the decision to launch Catherine Lepreux Interiors and surround myself with a world full of vibrant colours, beautiful fabrics and textures.
