It's The Little Details ~

Do you notice the little details? Sometimes they are quirky or whimsical, in your face or very subtle. I found this website today and thought I'd share some of the details in these window treatments.

These delightful details come from Liz Ware of Details Pattern Company, who has been designing and sewing her own creations for years. From the website: Patterns featuring her original designs are inspired by runway fashion and Hollywood glamour, and her patterns capture those same details for the window fashions industry. She also creates patterns that revisit classic styles to include couture details.

The details can make the difference!

Details are everything! I am loving those corset tiebacks. So clever and would add a little ooo-la-la to the bedroom I think:).

Lindsey @ Better After said...

Wow, those are really unique. Loving your blog, I'm a follower!

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

I love the lace up one with the pearl buttons!

I came by to see the colors in your blog banner after you left that comment! I love them all together! The pink was an afterthought and now I'm so happy I thought of it! The pink/green tieback curtain has given me an idea...
Thanks!

Really like the white satin corset tie back with those buttons. Very pretty and unique!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That white corset tieback is what made me visit the website, Beth! I just think that is so pretty!

Thank you, Lindsey! They are unique ~ not like the tassel tiebacks we are all used to seeing.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oooh, Cindy ~ you are going to have so much fun doing your daughter's room! Glad you came by to see the banner.

I think that one is everybody's favorite, so far, Lisa. I wonder how difficult the pattern is for a sometime sewer? I'll have to contact Liz Ware and ask her the skill level.

Beautiful examples! She is very talented!

I love dressmaker details in the home. The leather corset tie-back is my favorite!

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! Kathy I have never seen such gorgeous and unique window treatments. ~Lovely! :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Thanks, Susan! Aren't they great?!

I'm with you, Diane! I think her corset patterns must be the most popular going by the comments here.

I love how just these tiebacks alone can make a plain window treatment into something special, Melissa.

just read your blog for the first time. I love finding new and interesting people and we are from the same...neck of the woods...I am in New York.Thanks for the story on draperies details. It is not something I am very strong at as I more of a minimalist, but i love these design details, and just may start to incorporate such touches....

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

They are so different, Alycia, I think that's whay draws me to them.

Thanks for visiting, Linda!

Roeshel ~ I'm a fan of whimsical as well!

Thanks for coming by and commenting, Francine! I like these in the sense that they are not right out there "in your face" like a colorful tassel tieback might be.

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

Love these! I'm sending this to my decorator friends.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Thanks for visiting, Sarah! Aren't these different.
