All of the hardware featured is from Design Elements Group. They have a huge variety of styles to choose from. This is a company that takes care of their customers and is a joy to work with. In this close up I show a beautiful on trend drapery rod. I chose from the Metropolitan Collection with a smooth rod in the brushed brass finish. Then it’s capped off with the cylinder finial with bubbles for this modern look in Valerie’s family room. The bubbles are so cute!
In Valerie’s dining room we chose the brush brass finish rod and rings, but with no finial just an end cap. This created the clean modern lines she was after.
For Beverly’s Bedroom I chose Design Elements Renaissance collection for the drapery hardware. On the large window we separated the rod into 2 rods and capped off each end with a finial.
The windows on either side of the bed had just enough room for the rod ending to the wall with a finial highlighted toward the bedside of the window. The fluted rod and rings are paired with the Victorian Finial in the collection.
Next I am showing this stunning French Country dining room, with the drapery framing the shutters as the crowning touch. We selected from the Valencia Collection, because it had the perfect rod iron rod we were looking for.
Here you can see the intricate heading detail I used when making the drapes. It is so French country, with the red check fabric flip over and ball trim on the leading edge. For the finial we chose the Fleur Di Lis finial out of the collection, for that quintessential finishing detail on the rod.
In Gina’s home I chose hardware from two collections, but I was still able to match the finish and style throughout her home. Here is how I did it: In the Living room the tall drapes are hanging on a fluted rod from the Renaissance Collection. We chose the Imperial Bronze with gold and grey for and finish and the Royal finial.
In the adjacent dining room we used the same fluted wood rod with their Victorian finial. This is just beautiful with the cream drapery hanging against the paprika red walls.
This is the close up of a small valance hanging from the same rod and ring combination in Gina’s hallway.
This is an Asian style valance paired with café curtains in their bar pantry. This rod is metal from the Valencia Collection and has the same finish as the rest of the rooms. I capped off the end of the rod with the Victorian finial in that collection to achieve the similar flow between all of the rooms.
My client Ronda wanted drapery hardware that was special. I designed a soft heading on her drapes and hung them on metal Scroll Holdbacks from the Valencia Collection. These are large and curvy and usually used to swag back the drapes from the window 2/3 down the wall. I knew they would be perfect for what Ronda was looking for.
In the close up you can see how detailed the metal scroll work is and the 3 hold backs gave me many places to tie her casual style drape on to.
