Change It Up… One-Two-Three

So our stormy weather blasted through, flipped our BBQ over (yup, it’s toast), knocked our power out, and did in one of our mega UPS battery power bars… so glad we had the UPS though, or it could’ve been the audio equipment instead :-|

Guess why this folding screen caught my eye…

Let’s just say I’m ready for some sunshine and colour! Bright, cheerful, playful and dry!

Since I’ve got you looking at the folding screen, I decided to share a few more. I know they’re nothing new, but they are an easy way to give your space a fresh look. And now might be the perfect time to change things up just a bit.

 See how the mirrored screens frame this space?

Imagine this space without them. Do you think you would like it as much?

Or this one with the antiqued mirror screen…

It adds to the old world charm, and creates the illusion of a larger space. Did you notice how it picks up where the mirror over the fireplace ends?

Maybe you would like to be carried off to another place.

With this folding acrylic screen, would this weekend in Paris do?

Or is an outdoor retreat more for you?

Perhaps near the ocean?

Believe it or not, this natural tree divider does fold! It would be tough to store, but what an impact it makes!

Or maybe you’d rather farmland like the Prairies instead…

This screen is made with laminated rye straw set in resin and acrylic…

I think this is so pretty…

And here you can see that it really is a screen!

It’s a limited edition piece from farm 21, and is truly functional art. It can stand in as a space divider, or stand on its own as a sculpture. But with a screen this unique, why get caught up in the details?

And last, but certainly not least…

If you’re a Mid-Century lover would this Eames screen appeal to you?

I have to admit, I’ve never seen the Eames screen. Is there anything they didn’t do?

Here’s a little ‘behind the Eames’ for you…

As Charles and Ray Eames saw it, designers just want to have “serious fun.” And this screen, designed in 1946, is a result of their play!    Click here to read more…

After Eames, is there anything more?

What do you think about mixing it up in decor with folding screens? Do you like them, or want to fold them away?

It’s about coming home… and home is a remarkable space that tells your story. Contact me if you need a little help!

  1. I love antiqued mirrors, especially that fabulous screen of antiqued mirrors! Mirrors behind bedside tables are a great way to reflect more light into the room and amp up the glam factor.

  2. Love the idea, made a few myself

  3. That first screen is so much fun and so colorful. Our home is too small right now for a screen but I’d love to find use for one someday as I think they can be used in a variety of ways. And so true, is there anything Eames’ didn’t do?

  4. I love the first one as well. I bet this would be a fairly simple diy project. Famous last words!

  5. The first one is a happy happy cure against the winter blues. But the reed screen – genius!

    • Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, and for leaving a comment! I just popped over to your blog and really enjoyed seeing your space – love the look and feel of it!

  6. I bought an upholstered folding screen a while ago, and I currently have it sitting against the longest wall to see if I like the extra dimension it brings to the room. I think I do like it, actually, but can’t figure out yet what fabric would really work with the art and other textiles in the room. Hmmmm ….

  7. I looooove the tree divider…. gosh wouldn’t a birch tree look kinda cool? You could do any kind of tree ….. the possibilties are endless!!!

  8. Goodness you had quite the storm didn’t you! Stay warm Sheila.

  9. Loved the antiqued mirror divider! and the birch tree divider was spectacular – very minimalist and clean. I can see that on a deck or as a gazebo wall outdoors. Thanks for putting this together. BTW that wind storm zapped our circuit board for the heat pump – dang!
