Curtains I made at a house near Hadrian’s Wall appeared in an episode of ITV’s detective series Vera in spring 2013. After this stunning stone house had been completely renovated, I was asked to make curtains and window seats for many of the rooms. I also made patchwork style cushions to bring together the floor rug, curtains and window seat. The cushions were inspired by the patchwork effect of the floor rug and incorporated fabrics form the curtains and window seat together with similar colours from the rug.

Part of an episode of Vera was filmed there, which involved repainting walls and banisters in the kitchen/dining area of the house, installing new prop furniture, taking out the client’s furniture and dressing the set. Filming also took place outside and the curtains I had previously made appeared on film.
