Lofts and studio apartment arrangements often leave the bed out in the open. Establishing privacy in this situation is always a design challenge and we love the screened solution in this downtown Kansas City loft...

the "bedroom" as seen from the rest of the loft

Designed by Black Bamboo, this "bedroom" is seriously just a bed-sized area of the loft that's been partitioned off with beautiful woven screens. The interior is cozy in scale and rich in material. It receives lots of natural light since it's up against an exterior wall, yet it doesn't hog it all from the rest of the loft: partial height screens and an open weave allow light to penetrate into the main loft space.

The privacy is improved over having a bed out in the middle of an open space, yet this still may not be private enough for some. We, however, think it strikes a good balance between privacy and an open, loft-like feeling. See the rest of this project at Black Bamboo.
