Decorative Screens, Room Dividers & Partitions


Screens & Room Dividers
can definitely add that finishing touch that few other accessories can do.



They can be extremely elegant as shown in this image. 


Do you need privacy and do not want to put up window treatments?



As you see the creativity concerning screens is endless.


An upholstered screen works well in the bedroom.



Now,
if you are living in an apartment in NYC 
with a kitchen that is wide open to the living room.....
Now you know what to do.


Another clever use for a screen -
providing privacy, yet allowing the light in.
I think this looks fabulous!!


Screened doors are one of my favorite things.
Even on a front door.
I just like diffused light coming through doors.
And there really are so many creative ways you can do it. 


Okay....
now a bit of what is new and wild.
I think this screen curtain is stunning.
Lose everything else in the picture and I can see it dividing
a living room from a dining room.
Even in a mostly traditional setting.
It would add so much punch without being over powering.
Do you agree??


In the design world they have now created 
very expensive fabrics to use for draperies that look just like this.

These are not drapery fabric however.
You can see more of this product if you look up
Razortooth


This I adore.
They have built a large scale - open lattice work screen 
surrounding the breakfast area.
BRILLIANT.

A jali is the term for a perforated stone or latticed screen, 
usually with an ornamental pattern constructed through the use 
of calligraphy and geometry. 
Early work was performed by carving into stone, 
while the later more elegant used by the Mughals employed the technique of inlay, 
using marble and semi-precious stones. 
Jali typically use Islamic geometric patterns, and less often arabesques.

This architectural decoration was used in Islamic architecture as well as in Indian architecture.

I have tried to put in a bit of every style of screens and partitions in this post. 
I wanted for you to find at least one thing you liked.
Something that would spark a creative idea for you.
Maybe even solve a problem you might have around your home.
Concerning privacy, or just defining a space.

I would appreciate your input.
Did you get any ideas?
Which was your favorite?

Happy New Year!!

Miami IS Different - Miami Beach 2011


Yes.
This is what it is really like in case you were wondering. 



These are everywhere....
but in Boca Raton 
the streets are over run with 
(it seems like to me)
the same navy blue Rolls Royce convertibles.



If you have the chance 
and you are in Dania Beach Florida
This is a showroom not to miss!!!!




for more info on terrazzo floors click here

Now when I was growing up terrazzo was EVERYWHERE!!!!
Every hotel, every house, .....,everywhere!
And the for years Floridians spent ooodles of dollars tearing it up and replacing it with
terra cotta tiles. Remember those???
They are gone too.
And we are back to TERRAZZO.
And now .....
look what they can do???
Not for me .... but still....
I appreciate it. 


Welcome to Miami Beach 2011

Your thoughts?????

happy happy new years with bunches of hugs and kisses

Christmas At Windsor And Their Upside Down Tree


On December 24 1850 Queen Victoria sat down at her bureau at Windsor Castle and wrote breathlessly in her journal: ‘My beloved Albert first took me to my tree and table, covered by such numberless gifts, really too much, too magnificent!’
Now visitors to the royal residence in leafy Berkshire will, for the first time, be able to sample Christmas just as Victoria and Prince Albert did 161 years ago.
Although monarchs have celebrated Christmas at Windsor since the 12th century, the couple were responsible for popularising the celebration in the form we know today.



Christmas At Windsor And Their Upside Down Tree



I hope the lovely Prince and his Wife are as happy today as the day they were married.
They are so pretty, they would make lovely ornaments for the tree.
OOPS....who am i kidding?
I am sure they are sold all over England for Christmas.
I want one too.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
