Susie Watson Designs
Inspired by the concept of ‘art in the everyday’, Susie Watson Designs offers delightful, handmade fabrics and furnishings that bring joy and elegance to any living space. Take inspiration from the Saffron Walden showroom on Market Row, featuring stunning designs for your living room and bedroom, and have a chat with a member of the team over a coffee to plan the home interiors of your dreams!
“The first thing to consider when decorating any room is the focal point,” says Camilla Kiddie, interior designer & showroom manager. “Sometimes it can be a window or a fireplace, but in sitting rooms it is very often the sofa. Adding the right mix of throws and cushions – layering colours, patterns and textures – can totally transform a room.”
Saffron Walden Blinds and Curtains
Windows provide a focal feature in each room of the house – so deserve to be dressed the part! Make a maximalist statement with a bold pair of patterned curtains, or add a pop of colour and geometry with sleek blinds. Whatever you’re after, Saffron Walden Blinds and Curtains offers an extensive range of window furnishings to jazz things up a little.
If you don’t fancy the hassle of redecorating, look instead to enhance your surroundings with a striking centrepiece or eye-catching artwork. Local picture framer Expressions Gallery is home to a charming collection of art, bronzes and glassware that can add a touch of personality to any space in need of a revamp.

This spring, Glasswells recommends replacing tired carpets with its Luxury Vinyl Tiles – offering the individuality of natural wood, marble and stone, while being easier to care for and more hard-wearing.
