“My ultimate reward is to see clients enjoying curtains, blinds and soft furnishings that reflect their tastes and enhance their lives.”
My name is Fiona Erwin, I established my soft furnishing business in 2009.
I began my journey before 2009 by taking an extensive training course with The National Design Academy. Working with their professional designers provided me with the extra knowledge to grow my design skills and to be able to construct beautiful hand sewn curtains and other window dressings from very traditional swags and tails to contemporary roman blinds.
I have always loved the use of colour in the home as a way to bring out individual personality. This is such a large part of the decision making process when you are choosing new curtains or blinds that I take absolute delight in spending time with my clients going through samples and ideas. I am happy to offer advice on colours and fabrics whilst listening carefully to your ideas and colour preferences are so that you can create the look and atmosphere that is suited to your home and lifestyle. You have to fall in love with the design, colour and atmosphere that the fabric will bring to your home since you will live with your curtains or blinds for many years to come.
I always take care to work within a clients budget and timescale realising that both are important to a good working relationship.
I am now supported in the business by John, my husband, who is involved in behind the scenes work and is now part of the measuring team.
“Fiona made us some beautiful roman blinds and curtains for our home. She helped us source the curtain poles and fabrics and was really detailed when explaining all the different options available for curtain headings - some of which we never knew existed. She is a total perfectionist and wouldn't rest until everything was hanging absolutely perfectly (not easy in an old house where nothing is level/straight!). She also made some beautiful scatter and bolster cushions to complement the curtain and blind fabrics. We are absolutely delighted with the finished results and would never consider anyone else - thank you so much Fiona!”
