Gold Drapery Rods

Gold and brass, it’s coming back. Love it ? Hate it ? Still trying to eradicate it from your home from the 80’s ? Some kitchen and bath designers say that it’s gaining popularity. I won’t go so far as to put it on fixtures but I am LOVING it on drapery rods !

The gold rods in the bay window in this sitting room by Tom Stringer Designs look delish with the chocolate walls.



Also looks great in a more neutral room with cool colors………..


Looks great in a traditional setting with a coordinating chandy…..


Ya’ll know how much I love the pink and gray combo; the gold is perfect with it.

The wood face of my Somfy motorized track is already painted, just need to make up my mind on the fabric choice.

It works in a modern or traditional setting. So, have I convinced you yet ? Do you love it ?

Custom window treatments can be the single most important element in pulling together your decorating scheme.

Gold, yes. Brass, especially that shiny brass, no. I lived with that shiny brass for way too many years to embrace it now! Gold I have incorporated into my master bedroom and I do love the way that looks. So, I'm a yea and a nay on that question, Tammy!

I still love the real brass--not that yellow-y fake stuff that followed so many years later. I still think it lends a sense of glamour to a room.

I agree with you about the fake cirmosa rods ,Linda. I just took some down for a client last week.

I love vintage stuff so I totally like the idea of a goldish/brassy rod!
