Either by choice or by the vagaries of fate, you have found yourself living in a studio apartment. That's it. Just one room. And maybe you're cool with that, but you don't feel like looking at your bed all day long. Or you need a little privacy for when houseguests stay, or you just want to create a little separation between the parts of your apartment devoted to sleeping and waking. Apartment Therapy has a few ideas.

In his Houston apartment, Chris used a credenza, and a fabric panel, to give his bed a little privacy. Bonus: the panel also doubles as a projection screen.

In her 480 square foot studio apartment, Maura went for the nuclear option: building actual walls around her bed. It actually works out quite nicely because one end is left open, and the high ceilings allow the little bedroom box to become an interesting design feature.
