Mismatched drapery hardware

I had this great idea for a follow-up post to Monday's resource for custom-look drapery hardware: mixing, not matching, your drapery rod and rings. I recently saw the most gorgeous space with black curtain rod and shiny gold rings, finials, and tiebacks. So custom, such a great detail. The problem? Can't find the picture ANYWHERE. I have combed through my pinterest pages, my loose file of recent tearsheets, everywhere I could think to look.

It would have been much easier to just scrap the idea and post something else, but somehow once I had invested all that time in finding the image, I kind of dug in and wasted MORE time looking for replacement images. I found these, which are GREAT, but not quite as heart-stopping as the black and gold combo.

If you love the idea of the lucite and metallic, but don't have a million bucks, check out this DIY tutorial to get the look for less.

Aren't you glad it took me two days to come up with this?
