Two vintage bamboo screens worked together to create a richly-textured feature wall for this 1960s dining room — and in the process, covered up a wide window with no view to speak of.
A simple yellow and white vertically striped roller blind existed there before, but when it was pulled down, it constantly called attention to itself because it was so obviously screening the glass.
By placing two of these lightweight heart-shaped wicker/rattan and bamboo screens — much like the retro divider shown below — across the window, the blind was covered and simply looked like part of the decorative treatment.
The golden yellow of the rattan and bamboo matched the dining room’s walls and flooring.
The new decor offered six panels of width, and was three woven heart designs in height, reaching up to the ceiling. Best of all, it didn’t block the light — in fact, it could look really beautiful when it was bright out and the natural material was seen in silhouette or in shadow.
