New Forest Designs provides bespoke interior design for your home. Design, create and deliver is our motto and we always do this with you at the forefront of our mind. With your help, we 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 project is a bespoke handmade roman blind or a full-scale refurbishment, our work will be delivered to a high standard and promptly. We take pride in all aspects of our work and we always design with passion, so the result exceeds your expectation. Our team has many years joint experience in construction, property, management 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, we 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. We think interior home design should be an exciting and stress-free experience, so we offer full project management from design to delivery.

Bespoke and handmade window dressing is a popular service for our clients. Further to bespoke handmade curtains, we create bespoke handmade roman blinds of the highest quality. All the window dressings are made by us. We 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. We work with a vast range of suppliers such as Clarke & Clarke, Studio G, Linwood, Elenbach, Archroll, 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 our home interior design service, we also offer upholstery. We can change the look of a modern set of dining chairs so that it blends beautifully with a new home colour scheme or we can give a tired and priceless family heirloom a new lease of life. Using a combination of modern and traditional techniques we can transform your 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. We create 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.

Lovely words from lovely clients

It has been a year since we moved to New Zealand! The weather is simply glorious today. The rhododendrons start slowly to bloom. I’m taking a short break from sewing Roman blinds for lovely Jude and enjoying the view from the balcony. The birds are singing their songs, distant noises are coming from the other side of the bay where the city is. Sunshine always brings hope and smile. The longer days bringing the real feel of the season change. Spring used to be Lucy’s (my Mum) favourite time of the year and I can definitely see why. How about you? What is your favourite time of the year? #catherinebrennandesign #inspiration #nature #newzealand #dunedinnz #interiordesign #homedesign #greatoutdoors

Last six months was tough! Not only finding our feet in New Zealand but also starting the business from scratch. I’m delighted to announce that the website has now been completed and I have written an article about my “First Year In New Zealand”. I hope you may be interested in what life has thrown at us in that last 12x months. Not hiding the fact that I would be extremely grateful if you decide to visit my new website 😀 Thank you #catherinebrennandesign #handmaderomanblinds #bespokecurtains #homedesign #interiordesign #interiors #newzealand #website

There are so many beautiful fabrics with outstanding patterns and colour schemes. A lot of these patterns are coming back. Some take you all the way back to Arts and Crafts and some take you to Retro style. Be inspired and create home that you love. I can bring the latest fabric samples - hangers from James Dunlop, Clarke& Clarke, Studio G, Villa Textiles, Charles Parsons and more to your home so you can visualise how these can look in your own home space. I’ll guide you and advise. This is a free consultation service @we_love_fabric and books #catherinebrennandesign #interiors #interiordesign #handmadecurtains #handmade #bespokeromanblinds #fabric #newzealand #dunedinnz #homedesign #home
