solution by screen


Do you have any empty corner that you don't know what to do with, want to hide an unsightly radiator, cover a messy corner, separate your dining and living areas, add some texture to a room or just need a new headboard? Well, there is one furnishing that can satisfy all of these needs--the folding screen. Such a lovely and versatile piece.

Do you have a decorating dilemma in your home that a screen could or has solved?

i love screens. i used to need one in my last house. but can't really think of a need for them in my current home. but i still would not ming having one just for decoration alone. my mother-in-law has some wonderful screens that she uses simply to cover a blank wall, and they look so neat.

Whoohoo! I love this idea! My dilemma is that I need to know where to find one!

Love the yellow headboard! i've been on the lookout for a screen for one of the corners of my dining room - where I have one of those light switches right smack in the middle of the wall.

Thank you for the comment. :) I love looking at your blog for inspiration. Seeing all of these design ideas has definitely given me extra confidence in my bold color choices.

That mirrored black one is my favorite! I'd definitely have to use it as a headboard for now though, as my little guy would have that sucker knocked over in a matter of minutes!
