Boy, what a catchy title… not! Anyway, they are pretty stellar, I must say. And, of course, they are for Pearson’s room. So the hunt for curtain rods was a long one because we covered two entire walls with drapery and we needed some pretty long rods. I immediately fell in love with these rods and finials from Restoration Hardware:
The problem was that the rods weren’t long enough… total bummer! In order to get the curtains up and give me some time to hunt, we purchased long rods at Home Depot. You can see how they really stand out and kind of break up the illusion of height I was trying to create…
So one day as I was stalking my favorite acrylic website, Plexi-Craft, and found the perfect curtain rods AND finials! The beauty of it is that they make them custom so you can get any length you need! Not only are the finials gorgeous and mimic the Restoration Hardware finials, the brackets to hang the rods are stunning as well. Who would think a curtain rod bracket could be beautiful??
And here’s the final result!
I love how they no longer create a horizontal line to stop the eye, but allow the drapes to stand alone and soften the space. They blend so much better with the chandelier! And so continues my obsession with acrylic… kind of an unexpected little hit of it, don’t you think?
P.S. As I was putting this post together, look what they now have at Home Depot by Martha Stewart! Talk about a stunning look on a budget! How pretty!!
