There are lots of simple solutions for hanging draperies or curtains, but the drapery ring is one of the simplest. Just loop rings through a rod and use the clips to attach the fabric panel. When adding these to your window decor, choose bold rings with modern finishes that make a statement, rather than traditional blacks, woods or whites. Your window treatment will go from ordinary to glam with rings like these Global Home Beaded Drapery Rings from Target ($9.99). The rings create instant drama with reflective gold beads and steel clips. For an understated, but still mod look, Umbra's $9 Wisp Clip Drapery Rings have tear-dropped shaped fronts which seamlessly hide the clip. They come in pewter, aged brass and black, so your window can be simple but still be stylish.
5. Fashion Forward Tiebacks
Traditional tiebacks mean tassels, tassels and more tassels. Modern window treatments would take a serious departure from sleek if it weren't for today's equally modern finds. Warm metallics, shimmering ornamentation and leather put the bling in your tiebacks while giving an otherwise simple window drape something to gleam about.
