With so much of our living now in open plan spaces, ‘zoning’ is a thing. I think we naturally want to feel that we know what a space is for, its purpose. A way to create this room within a room is with screens or a dividers. What these are however, can be as varied as your imagination!
What comes to mind for me are either thick dark ebony carved partitions or elegant oriental wafer thin screens (with these I need to suppress the desire to punch a hole like in a 60s bond movie. Juvenile I know).
The options are of course endless, here are a few that have captured my imagination, welcome to the world of the screen..
A mammoth piece of furniture which feels like it would be at home alongside a palm tree and a silk dress.
The effect of this screen is rather lovely, the natural fabric is layered producing perhaps more art than furniture.
My eye is always drawn to line, I love the precision of these metallic lines, bringing some sophistication to an open space.
Bang on trend, bring nature in with this versatile hipster divide (it’s got geometric shapes and everything)
I love the classic calm that rattan gives. With rounded corners this screen adds a lightness to a home.
Outside spaces can benefit from a bit of screening. I love these skeleton leaf-inspired structures, and the rusty colours on this an Autumn day feel apt.
The simplicity of a squared screen, welcome in the roasting heat.
More linear cool with this narrow but noticeable room divider.
Or bring nature in with a rather woody room divide.
And for that nod to Bohemia I love this wooden carved screen in a rich sea-green
A geometric wooden slither sits happily in a serene and classic interior.
And finally, a rustic and basic but beautiful living screen. Adding a bit of green to an urban space.
