This creative built-in wall divider screen — one that let in plenty of light, yet still clearly delineated two areas — turned a bedroom and its adjacent bathroom into a suite.

A well-thought-out lighting plan was the main feature of this remodeled and redecorated space from the late 1960s that highlighted both the bedroom and bathroom areas.

In this unique setup, the bathroom/closet corridor area running along the back wall was separated from the bedroom area by five panels of mostly-open screen (the fifth panel was on the far right, and was turned 90 degrees). Each of the six windows per panel featured five narrow decorative spindles.


A dropped plastic ceiling panel suffused warm lighting that filled the hallway, giving plenty of illumination to the dressing table/towel stand.

Delicate fabrics and colors set a feminine theme for this vintage space.In the bedroom, two ceiling spots bathed softly draped the curtaining material in subdued light, and had a dimmer control that operated from the bedside.

The pattern of the quilted bedspread throw and bolster cover was repeated in the wallpaper used in both the adjoining bathroom and the bedroom areas.

One tone from the floral print was picked up in the area rug, and wood finishes blended with the background color of the print.
