Like most design trends, decorative screens are staging a comeback and we’re seeing a wide assortment of shapes and materials.
My senior designer Beth Kweton and I love them for their versatility, beauty and functionality. We’re seeing them in leather, wood, metal and a host of beautiful fabrics. Here are 5 ways Beth and I use decorative screens for our clients:
For this recently completed family room we selected a leather screen with eye-catching nailheads to add interesting texture, dimension and height to a disconnected corner.
In this client’s living room, not only does the screen soften a corner, it creates a simple canvas for spotlighting some bold accessories, which in this case can only be seen from one direction. Kind of intriguing!
Want to hide an eyesore? Perhaps a messy home office, an ugly radiator, a children’s play area or a bad view? Yes, a screen will work.
Do you have a large room that could be multifunctional? Divide it with a screen and create two spaces that work for you – a dining room and a living room, or perhaps an office in the family room.
If you need some height in a room where all the furniture is low, consider a screen that makes a statement. It can be a dramatic focal point as well as a design solution.
She is fun, fabulous and fierce. She is chic, intelligent and in-the-know. But most of all, the Cheeky chick is the kind of woman who embraces, admires, respects, smiles at and opens her heart to other fabulous chicks. Now THAT'S Cheeky, darling!
