We are a design studio based just outside of Ponteland covering Newcastle, Northumberland & Edinburgh.
We believe homes should be both beautiful and functional, and for us understanding how you live in a space is key. We spend time getting to know who our clients are, what makes them tick, and then, starting with layouts, we get their home to work exactly as they need it to. From cutlery drawers to light switches & cushions to carpets we think through every element of our designs.
Then, once we have the layout in place, the real fun starts; colours, fabrics, bespoke joinery, furnishings, lighting, art, accessories - we love it all! Working with us you can expect a truly bespoke interior with all those frustrations ironed out - your home will not only look fantastic, it'll work perfectly too.

CATHY DEAN, FOUNDER AND INTERIOR DESIGN DIRECTOR
Following a lifelong obsession with interiors, Cathy re-trained and made her passion her business.
Having returned to her native North East from London in 2015 she founded Cathy Dean Interior Design, a growing studio offering clients a personal service and pushing to create their very best home.
Cathy worked as an Account Director co-ordinating and managing events across Europe for 10 years before transitioning into Interiors, so project co-ordination is now in her DNA. It’s her business background that helps with project co-ordination, she understands the importance team working, communication & of completing projects on time and within realistic budgets.
Interiors for Cathy is an absolute obsession. Your home should make you feel happy when you arrive back in it, it should feel ‘right’ and we create that feeling for each client within their design aspiration. The homes we create are for people to relax in and enjoy, to really live in. I hope every space we design firstly impresses, but secondly welcomes you in with open arms for a cuppa and a chat.
With a keen design eye and a love of contemporary modern design, each of our projects is overseen by Cathy and each one is truly individual to the client and to the property.
Cathy is also proud member of the Interior Design Collective. A group of specially selected members who all share similar aesthetics and ideals in bringing flexible and accessible design to clients nationwide.
JEN LAMBERT, INTERIOR DESIGNER
Jen joined the team at Cathy Dean Interior Design whilst studying Interior & Spatial Design at Newcastle College, once qualified she decided to remain with the Studio and is now an Interior Designer working alongside Cathy.
From the creation of visuals through to the sourcing of product to work within the scheme Jen is immersed in projects from start to finish. With a fantastic design eye and a complimentary style to Cathy she has become an integral part of the team, with boundless energy and enthusiasm she brings a whole new side to the business.
An obsessive furniture mover and styler Jen is an essential element to all parts of the project but comes alive when it comes to those end of project shots, her eye for compositions is beautiful allowing the entire scheme to pull together with an added flourish!
