Creating and finishing beautiful homes.

My Portfolio

I have put together a few samples of my work, over 18 years, I cannot list them all of course. But I hope this will give you a flavour of the work I can do.

Curtains for Curved and Arched Windows

This coordinated set of curtains and cushions were made to measure. The elegant curved curtain pole was also supplied and fitted by me. The fabrics were supplied from my extensive set of fabric suppliers.

Broad Bay Window Curtains and Matching Cushions - Designed and Made By Clive Rickard
Here the customer wanted and easy gentle coordinated look for the lounge, whilst not loosing the unusual curved feature. We worked together to identify the best complimentary fabric.

For the dining room, we wanted to continue and match the design of the lounge windows. This time we used a deep velvet sumptuous red fabric for the dining room.

Loft Space and Modern Apartments

In this new build loft apartment the client was keen to stress a clean consistent look across the spacious room. Allowing for the fabulous panorama but also providing privacy and effectively blocking out the early morning sun. A modern fabric design banded with stylish browns from between latte to dark chocolate. Ready-mades in this situation would have been an unsuitable compromise heres as the width required is simply not available.

Again in this flat, we acheived a simple uncomplicated but stylish look. Here you can see the curtains open, drawn and a detailed shot of ringlet dressings & chrome curtain poles. Here the fabric is a neutral fawn coloured heavy leatherette effect blackout curtain material. Standard off the shelf curtains were not available in this size, fabric, style and finishings.

Curtains for Offices and Workshops

The client here wanted to brighten up a dull office with a comfortable contemporary look. The effect has been positive, putting customers and staff feel at ease and have confidence in the business.
