Creative Home Interior Design by Catherine Brennan
New Forest Designs provide bespoke interior design for your home. Design, plan and deliver is my motto and I always do this with you at the forefront of my mind.
With your help, I can make your interior design dreams come true. New Forest Designs is a place where art meets reality and where your aspirations can be brought to life in line with your budget.
Whether your interior design project is a bespoke handmade lampshade or a full-scale refurbishment, my work will be delivered to a high standard and promptly.
I take pride in all aspects of my work and I always design with passion, so the result exceeds your expectation.
I have many years' experience in construction, property, and interior design so your project is in safe and experienced hands.
We will begin your interior design journey with the concept stage, which is a creative and satisfying process, I will take you from here through to the inspiration board which brings us closer to the design development stage. Next, everything is brought to life with the sample board where you can see specified materials, products, drawings and 3D visualisation. You can envisage the combination of stunning new colours and textures that will adorn your home. I think interior home design should be an exciting and stress-free experience, so I offer full project management from design to delivery.
Bespoke and handmade window dressing is a popular service for my clients. Further to bespoke handmade curtains, I create bespoke handmade roman blinds of the highest quality. All the window dressings are made by me under the roof of my workshop in Lyndhurst. I offer a complete experience from free measurement, quotation and professional advice through to the order of materials and fabric and finally the delivery and fitting of your new bespoke window dressing. I work with a vast range of suppliers such as Clarke & Clarke, Studio G, Linwood, Elenbach, Titley & Marr, Hallis Hudson, Evans Textiles, Rol-Lite Blinds and Velux, to provide made to measure Velux blinds, roller blinds, Venetian blinds and much more.
As part of my home interior design service, I also offer upholstery. I can change the look of a modern set of dining chairs so that it blends beautifully with a new home colour scheme or I can give a tired and priceless family heirloom a new lease of life. Using a combination of modern and traditional techniques I can transform you out-dated or spoiled furniture into fresh, comfy, practical and stylish pieces that you can be proud of.
The magical touches to any home are the bespoke furnishings that make it unique. I create headboards, cushions and even lampshades designed to complement the style of your décor and existing colour scheme or even to match your newly handmade window dressings. Magical touches are only such if they have been designed and created especially for you thus offering something unlike anything factory mass-created and found on the shop shelf.
"I can't recommend Catherine highly enough - it has been brilliant working with her over the last year on curtains, blinds and upholstery for a house renovation. I'm so pleased with everything she has created. Thanks again."
by Sharon Williamson
"Thank You Catherine. I am so pleased with all of my bespoke roman blinds and retractable blinds. It's been the finishing touch to the bedroom and bathroom. Thank you for your professionalism and expertise."
by Lucy Lewis
"We absolutely love our new office designed by Catherine with bespoke hand crafted fold down desk, shelving, fabulous paint/ lighting, luxurious carpet and beautiful accessories in our chosen Cairngorm tartan. Thank you Catherine and team for transforming our boy's former bedroom and creating such a lovely space to work and host overnight guests."

Acorn Cottage in Corfe Castle where New Forest Designs provided handmade and bespoke curtains and blinds for the entire property. You can book your next holiday there. It is gorgeous @acornscottagecorfe This room is my favourite - calming green on the walls complements the blind. The best way to connect indoor space with the outdoors is to start from observation - what surrounds the house and what fabric will make a real impact.

My heart has been aching, can’t sleep and feeling pretty useless…. Yuriy from Kiev runs a company called UseitAccessories @etsyuk Yuriy creates beautiful handmade and bespoke businesses cards. I have never met Yuriy and really hope he is safe. Many of my Polish friends and family know and work with many Ukrainians and so I feel we need to support them more whichever way we can. Today my daughter’s school @kessouthampton announced that they will be collecting donations for Ukraine that then will be distributed by the Polish Social Club in Portswood Road in Southampton to Ukrainians in need. @dailyecho has wrote an article about the donations. We all can help Ukraine!

Make your staircase special….
You can transform it without changing existing one to a new one. Add lighting which not only looks great but also means that you can switch the main light off and be safe when walking up and down. This is great advantage in the night when you can keep this little spot lights on to keep your kids safe in case they wake up in the night. Secondly you can paint the spindles and posts, keeping the handrail in the natural timber which you can sand and protect with varnish. Steps can be treated with a large variety of ways starting from either using carpet or stairs runner optionally apply carpet stair treads. You can also consider painting the stairs then applying motivational quotes or pattern decals on the stair risers.
Let me know if I can help with your project.

Makeover of a bedroom with a limited budget of under £2k for my lovely clients in Barton on Sea. I have found a couple of images of before transformation which hopefully shows a true change. Design consisted of: new wall finishes, handmade and bespoke roman blind, bed dressing, transformation of the wardrobe with new paint, added square mirror tiles, new handles and transformation of the chest of drawers with new handles, removal of the old basin, addition of the slimline bedside units and pendant lights with a remote control, new ceiling light, electric sockets and light switch plus the poster gallery wall. It was a great pleasure working with the clients who truly believed in my design from the very beginning and trusted in my project management. It has been amazing to transform another two rooms for the same client. I’m now working on their master bedroom and can’t wait to share this with you too.
Thank you to all my suppliers @evanstextiles @dusk.com @duluxheritage @clarke_clarke_interiors @ikeauk @socketstore @lampsy @nextofficial @posterstore

Delicate and gentle pattern of this fabric creates calmness in this Master Bedroom. It complements the natural look of the paint chosen for the walls. Fabric from @elanbach and professional track from @evanstextiles Handmade and bespoke blind from New Forest Designs Ltd. This blind has integrated blackout and interlining and premium quality lining. It has been fitted outside recess so that the window sill can be undisturbed and used for plants or photo frames. The integrated track covers create a pelmet like finish and cover the track behind.

A retro, mid century inspired design for a living room, hallway and cloak room for a lovely family in Lymington. The transformation of the space is taking place right now and I’m managing the project organising professional tradesmen that I work with on majority of projects, getting quotes in place, ensuring works are done exactly to the design, scheduling deliveries, ordering materials and supervising works. Let me know if I can help on your project 🙂
