Transform a Room With Decorative Screens
Hide an Eyesore With Decorative Screens
If your room overlooks the freeway or your neighbor’s pool, it may pay to pretend that the world out yonder doesn’t exist.
Use a decorative screen to maintain privacy and camouflage an ugly view.
How to Get This Look
- Choose a room divider with a pattern busy enough to mask what's behind it but airy enough to let sunlight in.
- Here, the screen's circular pattern echoes the curved fireplace opening, and the capiz-shell detailing complements the marble mantel.
- Prop a chaise in front of the screen to take advantage of natural light when reading.
- To buy: Serena screen, $4,100, olystudio.com for stores.
- Blocking an unsightly room with a screen. "There's nothing more appalling than having the door to a fluorescent-lit kitchen swing open on a candlelit dinner," says
Bilhuber. Put a screen a few feet in front of the door so guests can slide by.
