“We have two L-shaped sectionals facing each other, and then we have two niches that overlook the street,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “Each of those has a chez that is really like a bed, so you could have people sleep there if you wanted.”
Floral-patterned curtains create a privacy screen in this cozy bedroom. Tone-on-tone green walls add an elegant touch, and a white desk with built-in shelving gives added functionality to this small space.
A pergola cover lets fresh air wash over this extravagant poolside seating set up while privacy curtains allow the space to be closed off at will. Concrete tables ground the design and compliment the flooring. Wicker chairs add a lighter element and darker color tone. A large lantern illuminates the space to transition the lounge into the evening.
Privacy curtains allow for closing off this poolside lounge area as well as add an elegant decorative element when tied back. The pergola cover keeps the space open to fresh air and sunlight, perfect for poolside lounging. The wicker and wood seats are padded with neutral tones for a calm and classy style.
This opulent living room has a wall-mounted, flatscreen television, a long, red upholstered seat with privacy curtains, a curved sofa, and a glass-topped console with unique, carved supports. Sconce lighting illuminate the room's gold walls.
Roman shades or black out drapes ensure your guests will get a great night’s sleep by insulating the room from light and noise. They also provide plenty of privacy if the den or family room has street facing windows.
Outdoor lighting highlights the elegance of this swimming pool set up. The home exterior's light coloring shines against the rich greenery and evening sky. Privacy curtains are tied back to reveal an inviting lounge area under the pergola cover. A stone patio circles the pool adding subtle texture.
In the master suite, designers created a warm focal point in the space with the fireplace. To create a bit of contrast, it was painted white with brown accent tiles to complement the tan walls. To help give the space a bit of privacy, curtains were hung on a wrought iron rods and half curtains attached to the large windows.
Patterned curtains frame the tree on either side, providing symmetry during the day and privacy at night. Because they hang higher than the window, these treatments elongate the sitting room and make it seem larger.
In addition to providing privacy, outdoor drapery panels can give patios and porches the feel and function of an interior space when the panels are drawn closed. With panels, you can choose to entertain your guests with a breezy, sunny lunch or a secluded, intimate dinner—it's your call!
Designers transformed the building's former classrooms into the bedrooms for these homeowners. Instead of splitting the space into five bedrooms-one for each child-designers decided to leave the room open and create a wall with six bunk beds. These bed spaces are given some privacy with curtains to give each boy their own space.
To accommodate as many people as possible, designers combined the exercise space and photography studio into an expansive, communal sleeping area with space for up to 10 people. Inspired by railway sleeping cars, the double-decker, double-sized bunk beds are cozy, comfortable and private, with well-appointed interiors including reading lights and book nooks. A comfy window seat doubles as day bed, and converts to a trundle bed when needed, while deep drawers provide plenty of storage space.
