Happy Monday ~ I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
I got to thinking the other day while walking around Pottery Barn – love that store – and noticed the way they used room dividers to create small vignettes within such a large space.
Don’t you think you could use a room divider or screen in your home to break up a large room into smaller spaces? What a great idea!
Room Dividers can be pretty AND functional
Dividers and screens are both aesthetically pleasing, yet functional. Think about using a screen to hide all your stuff ~ toys, storage, boxes, etc… OR just as an architectural statement!
Choosing a Screen for your Space
Here comes my “interior” lingo….first think about the purpose of the screen and where you have space for it. If you need to access the area behind, then find something that is easily moveable, but if your desire is to separate a large living space into smaller areas to create a combo living/dining space or office/living space, an open shelving divider would be great (like the white example above).
Let’s take a look at a few of my favs ~
This bookcase/room divider by Cantoni is very modern but would look awesome in a sleek, minimalist interior.
This room divider is used in the above studio apartment to separate a living/bedroom area. Take a look at Euro Furniture Online

I was at Ikea this past weekend and there were a ton of awesome screens, similar to the one shown above.
Love this unique and beautiful screen divider by Serena screen by Oly Studios. It’s made of opaque colored shells, with a metal frame surround. Can you imagine this at a beach house?
This low bookcase by BoConcept is a great option for a smaller living space that you want/need to divide. It will help define two separate, functional spaces, but allows for an airy feel. Use baskets or bins that can be a accessed from both sides and you’ll instantly have storage.
Do you have a room divider in your home? If so, is it for the aesthetic look or does it hide something? Do you use bookcases to divide a space?
