This guest bedroom features a sleek gray and white color palette. A patterned folding screen behind the bed's headboard breaks up the flat panels of the walls and softens the crisp lines of the furniture.
A sleek table and classic chairs pop against a chocolate cowhide rug in this modern dining room. A skateboard-inspired folding screen, copper orb lights and funky sculpture keep the space fun and youthful.
In this guest bedroom, a white platform bed is on display in front of a decorative folding screen. A blend of quilted finishes, gray linens and nestling tables are full of character and romantic charm.
A glass chandelier provides a fun finishing touch in this eclectic, colorful guest bedroom. Asian-inspired patterns adorn the custom upholstered headboard and an antique armchair. A folding screen complements the colors in the fabric and brightens an otherwise dark corner.
Creating a sense of enclosure in your outdoor room will make it feel like a secluded oasis. Use a privacy screen to block a bad view or nosey neighbors. Upcycle some old shutters and a few hinges into a folding partition.
A nook dedicated to fashion off of the master bathroom designed by Janie Wilburn is just right for a dressing area. The space features vintage fashion illustrations and soft, feminine colors of ivory and robin's egg blue on a folding screen, antique chair and wall color.
On the two short sides of each panel, use a seam gauge to fold over 4” and press in place. Fold the top edge of the fold over 1/2” and pin in place. Sew a seam along the fold very close to the edge, backstitching at the beginning and end of the seam. Remove any excess threads.
You will need two panels from one sheet and one panel from the second sheet. Cut the panels 92” long and at least 37-1/2” wide. They can be wider, if possible, for more gathers in the finished project. On the two long sides of each panel, fold over the edge 1/2” and then fold it again. Press with an iron, if necessary to hold it in place, and pin about 6” apart. Sew a seam along the fold very close to the edge.

Thoughtful space planning maximizes views of the Phoenix valley from three levels of living at this contemporary home. The second story features a covered porch with bi-fold shade screens, the lower level enjoys panoramic stretches through large glass doors and windows and the pool sits on its own terrace, offering the same sweeping vistas.
To give the living room more expansive views of the lake and mountains, designers widened the doorway into the sunroom and added larger windows. On the other side, folding doors now join the room with a screened porch.
Sleek wooden chairs with simple white upholstery create a seating area at the potting station. When the project is done the table can fold up nicely and the chairs provide a place to relax and watch the game on the large flat screen television.
