I recently spent a few days in one of my favorite cities, Portland, Oregon.  I love all the beautiful old character homes that the city has. 

Here are just a few I found on an early morning walk in the northwest area of Portland.  Enjoy!

I received a very high quotation from a local firm to have a Roman shade made for a 4′ x 5′ window, with a delivery time of 6 – 8 weeks. I thought the price was excessive and contacted NikkiDesigns. I emailed my dimensions to Nikki and she promptly responded with a quotation, that was a fraction of the first quotation and a delivery date of 2 weeks. We drove up to Ladysmith and met with Nikki. She provided excellent suggestions on the construction of the shade. Nikki also accommodated our need to come after office hours to pick up the shade that was ready in 10 days!
Nikki has provided excellent follow up service when we had a couple of questions. I would recommend Nikki Designs for the workmanship and service we received.

I would like to recommend your workmanship and high quality products to anyone interested in personalized orders. You have provided us with hemp curtains that have lasted for over 14 years without any sign of sun damage, cushion covers using fabric we chose elsewhere and then a great cover for an ottoman that surpassed the original design and fabric. Your stock of natural fabrics is impressive and your delivery dates unbeatable. You are a local treasure. Thanks!

The fabric is a gorgeous color and of very fine, elegant quality. I was pleased to find materials friendly to people and environment. Nikki’s skill, craftsmanship, and attention to detail are all highly evident in the final product. I plan on ordering more.
