Tie it Back

Much like a good ponytail, the proper drapery tieback has many styles... crisp & classic, loose & playful.  Here are some ideas for tying those panels back without looking like you just put on a scrunchee.

A vintage plate glued to a sturdy screw gives an unexpected yet chic look.

Vintage Door Knobs are an option I have used myself.

Group Necklaces for an unexpected hit of sparkle.  This look could change styles quickly depending on the style of necklace used.

This simple solution is Hardware Store Chic for sure.

Thick rope tie backs add a relaxed feel.

I really like the scale of these tie backs.  Go big or go home right?

Tips for successfully pulling back drapery:

If you plan on tie back your drapery panels, make sure your panels are longer than you need.  Otherwise, once you tie them back, they just look too short.  Oops.

If you need just a little bit more length on your panels, consider using Rings & Pins to allow them to hang properly.

& if you need just a little more... Rings & Clips.  

Do you tie back?

  1. Love these options...I have been toying with the idea of tying my curtains back but haven't decided on a tie back. I love the simplicity of the rope and the snap and hook key ring.
