Bedroom of the Week

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!

I got white the white french style cheap furniture when I was a kid...thought I had died and gone to heaven. My room was always the nicest in the house! lol

A good fabric house is hard to find...she looks like she has a nice attention to detail.

YOU are an artist! I know what you mean about finding the right people, it's all in the details and having someone else do things for you is a leap of faith. Glad you found someone who is turning your dreams into reality!

I have never said this before, Jackie, but you make me wish I lived near Kentucky!
Vicky does lovely and meticulous work.
BTW: Your Window Treatments book just arrived. Everyone in my office has been enjoying it. It is the most extensive window treatment book I have ever owned. I will never need another one!

The slip cover is very well done. It's amazing how many times you see slip covers, or even upholstered furniture, with mismatched patterns!

First you give us the gorgeous designs in your new book and then you give us these designs. I adore the pink shade at the window nook and both the blue and green curtains. I'm going to try adding ribbon and flowers to some simple sheets hanging by ribbons.

Vickie is one talented woman! I had the privilege of working with her years ago and am also privileged to call her a friend.

This is a really neat site!
