We've certainly seen the bookcase-as-divider idea plenty of times on Apartment Therapy. And for good reason: it's the perfect way to create zones in a small space or open floor plan. Interior designer Todd Klein's version of the space dividing bookcase adds a new twist: using a curtain on the bedroom side of the bookcase. See the flip side of the bookcase below the jump...
We spotted this open bookcase and curtain combo, designed by Klein, in the current issue of Elle Decor. Granted we might be particularly enamored with these photos since we clearly like the same color scheme, evidenced by our AT House Tour.
You could use the Ikea Expedit bookcase(s), along with a ceiling mounted curtain to create a similar, affordable version of Klein's high end design.
Have you made something similar in your space, including the curtain element?
