Curtains and upholstered pieces of furniture can be complemented with toning or contrasting soft furnishing accessories such as:
- Table runners, cloths and napkins
Let your imagination run free. If you have an idea for an interior accessory which can be made in fabric just get in touch and we will make it a reality.
There is nothing more comfortable than a sofa or armchair with a selection of cushions. Use the same fabric as your curtains for a unified look. Plain cushions are a simple, versatile alternative whereas stripes and check give a fresh modern feel. Piping along the seams ensures the cushions look smart and protect the corners from wear.
Cushions can be made in all shapes and sizes, with or without a gusset which adds depth. Consider embellishing your cushions with applique or button closures.
If your curtains are very full and need to be drawn back away from the windows when open, then a set of matching tie-backs is the solution. They can be shaped to match your interior style and we will calculate the size required for your curtains. We will also install your tie-backs in the correct position.
Throws are often used on a sofa or bed for added warmth in the winter. Lightweight fabrics will be interlined to give the throw weight. Throws can be decorated with fringes or braid. Heavy fabrics may be left unlined and the edges finished carefully by hand.
If you like to read in bed then a softly padded headboard is a must have accessory for the bedroom. We will design the shape of the bedhead to suit the room and discuss the best fabrics to use. If the curtain fabric is of a suitable weight this may be used.
Bedspreads, Quilts and Valances
Before the advent of duvets, everyone had a quilt or bedspread on the bed. A bedspread added a touch of elegance to a bedroom. Lined and interlined, a bedspread can be made from a range of fabrics. You can also have a matching valance to hide underbed storage. We are able to devise valances for a variety of beds to ensure a perfect fit.
I was recommended Changing Views to design and make my curtains and soft furnishings during my full farmhouse renovation and re-model.
I was keen to use someone local and independent and I’m so glad I did. Beth and Debbie are not only extremely knowledgeable and skilled at what they do but also lovely to work with, each meeting was professional and good humoured.
I had only intended to use a made to measure service for the principle rooms, but having started working with them I soon decided to hand the whole project over to them and they made every curtain and blind in the house which was over 20 pairs.
They were quick to get an idea and understanding of my style and recommended fabrics that they knew would work with my interior designs. Their product knowledge of so many fabrics is amazing. I had many meetings with them and they were always very patient and happy to be flexible with changing ideas. Their service included installing the tracks and poles, along with personally coming and hanging each curtain and blind to check everything was perfect, this complete service took a lot of pressure off me during a busy building project and they stuck to their lead times but were flexible when my build schedule had to change.
I also used them to make cushions, chair covers, window seats and bench cushions, all of which are beautiful and the quality is commented on by everyone who comes to the house. I am delighted with each curtain and blind and amazed how the pattern matching is flawless and how stunning they look. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Changing Views.
“Beth and Debbie, thank you for the beautifully made curtains. We have been very impressed with the care taken from you in all aspects of your service, from measuring to offering a wide range of fabrics and colours. Fantastic personal service and expertly fitted curtains and excellent advice with pelmet and materials choice. We also had blinds made which again were of high quality. Thank you both and your team for all your work, we cannot recommend you highly enough.”

“They gave us detailed estimates, which they stuck to. Outstanding team!”
“Beth and Debbie helped us furnish a new build house. They were great to work with – friendly, patient, funny; and full of ideas and advice on how to get the best look in the bedrooms and family rooms. They made curtains, valences, throws for the beds, pelmets and cushions – and installed and styled them all. They saved us from ourselves on a couple of fabric choices, where the weight was wrong for what we were trying to do with it. They always came when they said they were going to come and were here for as long as it took to get things looking perfect. They gave us detailed estimates, which they stuck to. Outstanding team!”
“We have found them a joy to work with for their imaginative ideas and professionalism.”
“Beth and Debbie have become old friends in the last few years simply because their work is absolutely excellent. We have asked them to make several blinds, curtains, cushions and they even recovered a headboard when they did a makeover to the windows in our bedroom. We have found them a joy to work with for their imaginative ideas and professionalism.”
