Folding screens

Given my love for patchwork, it’s no surprise that I was drawn to Dawn’s DIY screen featured on Design*Sponge.  Screens are such a clever way to hide a home office or add a bit of your own look and personality to a rented apartment or college dorm room. 

Who says that folding screens are just for indoors?  I think this screen to the left is a beautiful example of how a folding screen can create a stunning backdrop for any area of your home. 

This mondrian-looking screen helps to make the space in this loft look less cavernous and a bit more intimate.  A nice feature for open-plan living — particularly if you want something you can just use from time-to-time (for example, a place for sofa-sleeper guests to hide their belongings).

      Hi Molly – unfortunately, that’s one from old clippings I have so I don’t have a reference for it but I’ll try to look on Google and figure it out! Thanks for your comment on the blog.

    I’m really loving the screen that is outdoor, if you don’t remember your reference do you know of any places that would sell something with a similar feeling?
