The March issue of Dwell features an amazing Melbourne house with a spacious, multi-level layout. With DIY on the brain this month, we were particularly excited about the handmade bedroom partition that the owner created…
In order to prevent the space from feeling boxy and uninteresting, the owners used different architectural elements to create flow and divide the space. To create a privacy partition, Cat Macleod wove strips of architectural felt through floor to ceiling wires at the edge of the room. By varying the lengths of felt and creating a subtle pattern in the weave, Macleod created a beautiful, changeable room divider that is "at once soft and industrial in feel."
This idea can be applied in a myriad of ways in a relatively simple fashion. This could be a great way to create a headboard, divide a room, or even create a window covering. Some eye-hooks, picture wire, and felt or other interesting material, and you're off!
