The home of bespoke drapery creations for your home and garden.

Hi, I’m Nicky Blackwell. Welcome to Studio Blackwell.

At Studio Blackwell we are driven by a passion for fabric and the style and comfort they bring to your living spaces. We work collaboratively with you to bring the pictures in your mind to life, leaving you with custom-made pieces in your home that delight you every day.

Your work will be designed and made in our lovely barn situated 20 minutes north of Cheltenham on the boundary of the Cotswolds and the Malvern Hills. There’s so much inspiration to be taken from the exquisite natural surroundings here, and (if possible) we’d love you to pay us a visit.

A brief introduction

I trained and worked as a nurse and midwife for twenty years, but have always loved design, sewing and creative work with textiles. In 2013 I took the plunge and embraced a fulltime career designing and making curtains, blinds and accessories.

From the beginning I wanted to offer a bespoke service, helping you to choose the perfect fabrics and design the best soft furnishing solutions for your indoor and outdoor living spaces.

I understand that dressing your home is a personal process and an expression of your own creativity, taste and style. I therefore treat every commission as completely unique, visiting your home with a collection of sample books to peruse together, inviting you to The Haberdashery for further inspiration, attentively listening to your thoughts and plans, then tailoring the work to meet your specific needs.

Have you recently begun falling in love with your outdoor ‘rooms’ as much as your indoor ones, and to care and plan for them in much the same way? With gardens, patios, terraces and balconies becoming the setting for memorable get togethers with loved ones, it makes sense that we would like them to be every bit as comfortable and stylish as our interiors.

To celebrate the nation’s love of outdoor life, we have developed a complete range of off the shelf products to transform your outdoors. And, if you’re seeking that personal touch, we happily accept commissions for bespoke outdoor soft furnishings from tablecloths, napkins and placemats to box cushions and parasols.
