I am wallpapering more and more room screen dividers. It’s a good option when a designer or homeowner wants a fling not a marriage to wallpaper. I see the rise in popularity of decorative screens as a solution and a decorative indulgence. The options for interesting combinations of styles and use of murals is more affordable, portable and interchangeable.
It can even be like having an affair with two different people … you can paper one side of the screen in Victorian pattern and border, on the other side you can paper with hand painted Chinese mural. It really makes a great design statement and can be a decorating focus point.
Decorative screens are used for …
• dividing the room
• adding privacy to any space
• hiding clutter and increasing storage
• adding color
• redirecting foot traffic
• creating a foyer
• adding a desk front modesty screen
• creating coziness
• adding a decorative background
Screens are used in almost all rooms in the house – offices, bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms. Here are some beautiful screens made with antique wallpaper and murals.
P.S. Think about finishing the edges with tacks, gimp, ribbon, gilded paper machie, etc.
