We take pride in showing to you a selection of our recent testimonials.


Joanne has provided an excellent, prompt and professional service, and my daughter now has beautiful new curtains to finish off her bedroom. I have had curtains made in-store in the past, and I can safely that the standard of Joanne’s work is the best I’ve ever seen. She offered great advice and provided great quality fabric. Joanne hand-finishes her curtains, and the quality of the sewing and the attention to detail is fantastic. I highly recommend Joanne’s work, and will be returning for new curtains for our large bay window when we re-decorate next year. Joanne also provides really good technical advice on roman blinds and fabric finishes – and when you meet her it’s clear that she takes huge pride in her work. Definitely a 5 star review!

Really helpful, knowledgeable and friendly service. Excellent attention to detail and as such a high quality finish. Very impressive overall.

Highly recommend Joanne! Joanne has made me blinds for my bedroom and living room and curtains for a bedroom. I couldn't be happier with them. She is so talented, patient and a complete perfectionist. It's a big investment and she's so helpful with choosing fabrics and putting up with (well in my case) indecision! Joanne will discuss all options and costs honestly and is so easy to work with. I wouldn't ever go back to buying ready made curtains or from a chain. There is a huge difference! Thanks again Joanne.

The attention to detail that Joanne shows, and the skills to create our super luxurious curtains, cushions etc are worth every penny. We did have a budget to work to, and Joanne came up with some great ways to save money, without compromising the quality of the project. Since then, we just couldn't stop with upstairs, so we asked Joanne to get to work on 3 other rooms, so this year our house has been completed transformed, we are so chuffed with everything that Joanne has done for us. When you consider what you spend on furnishing your home and choosing all the different paints, wallpapers, curtains etc. you'd be crazy not to ask Joanne to help, getting it right first time will save an awful lot of money. Joanne is worth every single penny, her finished products are stunning !!

Dear Joanne

Thank-you so much for helping to transform two rooms in our wonderful new house! I had struggled for weeks making a decision over dozens of wallpaper and fabric samples. During your consultations for the rooms nothing was rushed and you took into account my personality, how the room would be used and the budget and provided samples that I would never have considered or been able to obtain myself. So now I have a gorgeous, calming bedroom and a warm, welcoming living room, both of which are a pleasure to be in! You are extremely dedicated and have such a passion for what you do, which shows in the effort you put into making sure everything is absolutely perfect. I will not hesitate to ask for your help with any future curtain, blind or interior decoration projects!

Kristy & John - Heaton Moor (January 2015)


Joanne made an impressively swift response to our enquiry, and gave a patient and unhurried consultation, keen to find a choice of colours and fabrics just right for my mum who is an elderly woman moving for the first time in 50 years and settling into a new home.

Joanne pulled out all the stops, making and fitting a stunning set of curtains with matching cushions and roman blind, giving that coordinated design look. We would definitely recommend Joanne for her caring approach, expert guidance and as a real local talent; just what we were looking for.

Joyce Barrow and Linda Porter - Hyde (August 2014)


I had already purchased some fabric and wanted a Roman Blind making for my dining room. I approached Joanne after finding details of her business, Joanne Smith Interiors, on the Internet. Joanne responded promptly to my email enquiry and arranged a home visit to measure the window. I found Joanne to be a warm, friendly person who was quick to understand my personal style and tastes. Joanne offered suggestions about the make up and fitting of the blind which improved on my initial ideas. Technically, Joanne's skills are fantastic and the hand stitched blind looks perfect. She arranged for the blind to be fitted and personally supervised the installation to ensure it met her own exacting standards. I can highly recommend Joanne's services. She works easily with your own ideas but can draw upon a comprehensive knowledge of fabric and interiors if you need help. Joanne goes out of her way to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the result. I was so pleased with the blind that I ordered another one for my bedroom.

Alison - Heaton Moor (July 2014)


Thanks so much for my beautiful Roman Blinds. They have transformed our living room into a place I can't wait to go and relax! The quality is fabulous and the matching cushions really add the finishing touch. Your service was quick and reliable and I would recommend you to anyone. Looking forward to seeing my bedroom blinds that you are very kindly holding onto until we've finished decorating. Five star service xxx

Joanne certainly has an eye for fabric colours and textures and she blended both of these into our existing room. I was particularly impressed with her initial consultation visit ... fabric options were discussed and many samples were available to view. Joanne offered advice on styles and fitting and we eventually agreed on a fabric and voile for the windows with cushions and throws being available in a complementary fabric which added a little luxury to the room. I have had a number of compliments from friends and will be calling on Joanne's services for 2 other rooms later in the year.

Mrs Dewhirst - Heaton Moor (Jan 2014)


We have used Joanne's skills, vision and expertise on previous occasions and have been delighted with the results. Without hesitation we knew that we needed Joanne to come and weave her magic once again to help give us the look and feel we were after for our bedroom. Joanne's unique approach carefully considers our needs and listens to what we want to achieve, on every occasion Joanne seems to magically pull out of the hat the perfect fabric, wallpaper, colours or trimmings needed for the job. Her vision of what works and what doesn't is fantastic. We are thrilled with the end result, it is exactly what we wanted, the only trouble is, we never want to leave the room!

Mr & Mrs Drew - Marple (Dec 2013)

Jo has made curtains for me previously so I knew the quality service she would give. I now have a beautiful roman blind at my window and a beanbag to match...it was Jo's idea to cover the beanbag and she was great at giving advice to make the most of the material I had bought, so no waste! I would strongly recommend Jo as she's professional, good price and lovely! thanks! X

Joanne provides a real personal service trying to find out about you and what styles will suit not only your home but also your personality. She offers great advice and subtly encourages you to think of interior design ideas which you would not think of yourself and helps you to push the boundaries - this is a real benefit as the result is something which really gives a wow factor! She spends a great deal of time looking for that perfect look, giving you tips and ideas beyond her remit and is not pushy or overpowering - an excellent investment to get you stunning results for your home.

J&M - Marple Bridge (Jan 2012)


I have never engaged the services of a stylist before but with a busy life I really didn’t want to spend hours looking through magazines for ideas. It was a pleasure to invite Joanne into my home to discuss a new décor for our living room. Joanne gently made suggestions that were well within our comfort zone but also offered alternative ideas that would completely transform the space. Needless to say we were excited by the prospect of a ‘new look’ that I certainly wouldn’t have chosen by myself. Joanne took on board what items had to stay and worked with that and an understanding of the demands of a living in a male dominated household. We are thrilled with the end results and I would certainly ask Joanne to help another time.
