Finding a good workroom that can produce both window treatments and custom bedding can sometimes be a challenge but if you live anywhere near Franklin Kentucky you're in luck because that is the home of View by Vickie, the custom workroom and design studio of the very talented Vickie Law.
Her work is beautifully done with great attention to every detail.
She has a great sense of proportion which is so key to producing beautiful soft treatments.
I love this table skirt with its pointed scallop topper and coordinating banding at the hem. She has used microwelt on the scallops and to separate the banding from the main skirting. These are the kind of details that set a couture workroom apart from the rest.
Another pretty window seat - I always wanted one of these when I was growing up but I never got one. Maybe some day!
These draperies are to die for. Notice the handmade, stuffed flower embellishments with colorful ribbons. I love this idea, it is so cute and really makes the treatment unique. I adore the fabric, it looks like it has cut outs of flowers attached to the face.
I use this heading quite a bit because it is so versatile. It is a gathered ( or pleated in this case) scalloped heading bound at the top and hung with loops or ties.
This drawing is a similar design from my book; for such a simple design it packs a big impact.
Vickie also makes beautiful slip covers, notice how well placed and matched the fabrics pattern is on this cover. This is how it is supposed to be done!
