I'm a big believer in that the sum of the details is what makes a room extraordinary. I believe in investing on those forever-details, and in most rooms, this means window covers. If we are talking about draperies, you must consider your drapery hardware.
The poles, the brackets, the finials. Are the details ornate or simple almost to a fault? Are you meant to notice the hardware or is the hardware meant to melt away unnoticed? If you are interested in having your drapery hardware noticed, don't forget about your tie backs!
First let's talk function. If your drapery is covering a high traffic door or window, pulling your drapery away is an excellent idea. It will absolutely extend the life of your drapery and save a few dry cleaning bills along the way.
Now let's talk about beauty. Tie backs can be stunning! I'm not talking about grannie's tie backs, not brocade swaths of fabric. These days, tie backs can be that bit of added fun or beauty to your windows.
I've gathered my fav tie backs for you here!
And if you're still in doubt about drapery tie backs, here are some inspiration images that may change your mind!
