Contemporary Living Room With Open Shelving Unit Room Divider
HGTV Design Star judge Candice Olson praises this design saying, "From a practical point of view I think the layout of this space is ingenious with the open shelving acting both as room divider and storage/display unit, but most importantly as an intriguing element that draws your eye into the space, around the corner into the bedroom area and beyond, where your eye hits the jackpot with a clear view of the Manhattan skyline."

The unique headboard is a shelving structure of open cubbies, perfect for displaying decor. The green striped bed cover adds color to the white shelves, walls and sheets. The shelving unit acts as a room divider, but the see-through element creates a spacious feel.
