Even if you can’t live like a pampered starlet from Old Hollywood, your window treatment can be just as luxe as you please! Give your favorite drapes the royal treatment with one of these elegant updates.
1) String panel or lace sheer
Hang an Austrian-style string panel or a delicate lace curtain beneath your drapes and let the sunlight filter dreamily into your boudoir.
2) Tassel tiebacks
Use tassel tiebacks to gather curtains back at the sides. Jeweled tiebacks give your window treatment an opulent touch.
3) Post- or hook-style curtain holdbacks
If you don’t have traditional fabric or tassel tiebacks, consider decorative wall-mounted holdbacks. Gather the panels behind holdback hooks or drape them over post-style holdbacks.
4) Decorative curtain rod
Replace that utilitarian curtain rod with something glitzier—like a drapery rod with faceted finials that catch the light.
