Orion Hardware Used by Design Comp Winners

PamelaRyalls-Boyd-1103a
Congratulations to Decorating Den Interiors – Pamela Ryalls-Boyd for winning Second Place, Decorative Hardware in the 2015 Envision Design Competition held by WF Vision magazine.. This charming breakfast room in a historic home deserved equally charming window treatments. She selected pale green sheers to filter the morning light, but the hardware chosen to complement the handpainted mural is clearly a star feature. We are honored that she chose our hardware. Our Iron Art medallions of grapes and leaves decorate the arch; while the side panels hang from rods and rings and a bird perches on our branch finials.
