Trend Spotting: Decorative Screens

Lately I have been noticing a lot of great screens! Regardless of the style, material, or size, a folding screen can be a fabulous way to add both structure and fun to your space. Screens are wonderful to divide spaces of course but also can help rooms feel taller and give much needed architectural interest to an otherwise bland interior. Plus they are eternally versatile and can be moved at any time! The above is one of my all time favorites - so lacy and romantic! The ivory painted screen is by Kelly Hoppen for BHS, and was featured in Living Ect. 
A striking geometric screen creates a beautiful vignette while still allowing the light to come in! The interior is by designer Michele Bonan, and was published in Lonny.
I just love this mod vintage screen I spotted on 1st Dibs, it's Brazilian from the 1960's by Joaquim Tenreiro and alternates panels of rosewood and white lacquer! Available via R 20th Century designs.


This oversized screen, clad in Ferm Living wall paper adds lots of drama! By Cristina Coop for Rue magazine.

I love by the way designer Laurann Claridge used this cathedral shaped upholstered screen in place of a headboard - just beautiful! {Photo via Lonny}

Carolyn Espley-Miller had a similar idea, however she repurposed antique barn doors instead and filled the whole wall!

What a great way to add vibrant teal - without painting your walls! I think this horsehair and nickel nailhead screen by John Boyd Textiles is just stunning. {Photo via Remodelista}

You can find this beautiful 1940's French screen at Boo Radley Antiques in Melrose. I love how the iron finish is punctuated with accents of gold paint.

Lastly, a classic beauty! Bunny Williams creates a lovely and intimate reading nook out of what have been an otherwise ordinary corner. {Photo via Lonny June-July 2010}

Until Tomorrow!
