Elaborate metal curtain tie backs, blown glass, pressed tin or attractive brass metal work will all result in a feature piece that will sit alongside your window treatment that can add beauty and eye catching detail to the room.
A particularly attractive variation that will provide you with a most attractive option is to use antique curtain pinback flowers providing another decorative feature that will sit on the curtain where it will be visible to the room. They may also be referred to as antique brooch curtain tiebacks.
Apart from the affixed tiebacks that you might use as permanent features on the wall you might prefer to go with the softer look of a fine tasselled rope that can simply be hung around the curtain to the side of the window.
The tie backs that you can buy will work equally as well for curtains as they will for drapes so there is no problem if you find that they are called tie backs for drapes or curtains.
No matter whether you are after an elaborately ornate tieback or something more simple and functional, but still giving the appearance of being an antique, there should be a tieback that will merge in with the décor of the room.
How To Use Antique Brooch Curtain Tiebacks
Your curtain tiebacks are a flexible yet attractive option for decorating the room, which can set the mood and tone for a room very well. A wide range of materials can be used for the wrap of the tieback and beautiful, personal finishes can be given to the tieback, especially using antique curtain holdbacks. The choices available differ far and wide in materials, styles, colors and textures. A style of tieback that may be a little difficult to work out how best it might be used is the brooch curtain tieback. Here are a few guides for this task.
Assemble the materials you will require. You can begin either by purchasing ready-made curtain tiebacks which feature antique curtain holdbacks online or by collecting the following materials. You will need tieback posts, fabric or any bendy material for the tieback and any jewelry you may want to use to decorate the tiebacks. The fabric may be leftover pieces from the curtain material, pieces of cloth that you’ve bought specially for the purpose, basketry materials including rope or raffia or any other usable material that may catch your fancy.
Begin by placing the tieback post. The simplest way to do it is to place the post about a third of the way up from the floor to the curtain rod. You can place the post as high as three-quarters of the way for a more dramatic effect. If you have windows with arches, try placing one post over the window, at the top of the arch, and two more on either side of the window.
Next, pull your curtains back using a piece of fabric, maybe one that matches your curtains. For variety, you can use the traditional rope and tassel design, or even experiment with materials such as basketry material. You can also choose an accent color from the room for a more stark impression. Leather belts work well in imparting a manly feel in rooms where the curtains are not regularly opened or closed. For a more feminine feel, incorporate jewelry into the mix and create an antique curtain holdback by using family heirlooms or an antique item that may have caught your fancy.
Finally, tie the fabric to the post. You can tie the fabric to the post directly, using a simple or a decorative knot. You can also tie the two ends of the fabric to large plastic or metal ring and simply hook the ring to the post. As an alternate to the ring, bracelets and larger brooches work very well, giving a finishing touch to your antique curtain holdbacks.
