Magical Screens


I hope you are rested rennovated from the long weekend.  So, today I want to talk about screens- magical, elegant, luxurious, and oh so chic.  They can serve as headboards, hide problem areas, add layers of luxury, divide spaces, create dramatic entrances.....Old school?  I think they are making a comeback.  I grew up with one in our living room, an Asian one, so you can say that I have a special place in my heart for them. Here are some in action-


Here are some dreamworthy and decadent screen jewels- a bit on the expensive side ( as in contact us on for pricing) but they can spark some inspiration for sure.  Wouldn't your living rooms die of happiness with one of these?


and here are some more accessible screen options.  These could be interesting as well.

 What do you think? Are you a fan? Can you see your living room benefiting from one?

    These are great if you want to disguise an ugly wall or to provide privacy!

  7. I love the idea of a screen as a headboard...I have been trying to get my daughter to do that.

  9. Yeah I think they are a great option. It wouldn't work in my house but if you are trying to hide a room/ wall or divide a room this totally makes sense for your space.

  13. My parents used to have the most beautiful screen in our living room that I'm now wondering where it is. I love the idea of a screen to break up a larger room!
