5 Smart ways to use designer fabric without busting your budget

Day 2, Take 2 - 'The Leading Lady'

Our client fell in love with this stunning fabric from Harlequin, perfect for the curtains in her new home - nothing else came close.   A pair of floor length curtains meant that a fair few metres of fabric would be needed - her face grew pale!!  

'Don't worry' we said we have a solution - 'leave it with us'.............................................................................

We matched up a divine Jade coloured fabric, from the Scion Plains 5, wide width collection - it packed a dramatic punch, without eclipsing the main fabric.  A fraction of the price and wide width, meant a seamless curtain with a single join!   Oh Happy Days! - these tiny details rock our world.  

Our nifty fingered curtain maker set to work creating this stunning pair of Eyelet Curtains, seen here on a Satin Nickel Lunar Pole with matching Eyelets.

If this were a Broadway Musical production - the Heirloom would be the Leading Lady - a bit of a Diva to be honest and the plain fabric the humble hard-working Chorus Line - together they work in harmony to create a stunning performance with a very happy ending as the curtains close!
