Create an Instant Alcove-Style Bedroom with Curtains
There’s something wintry and Scandinavian about curtained beds (curtains were traditionally used to keep out drafts). The sense of enclosure is similar to an alcove. Here are four favorites from the editors of Remodelista.

For his New York apartment, stylist Scott Newkirk created a division between the living room and the bedroom using dramatic floor-to-ceiling curtains made from burlap. “They create a sense of intimacy and add texture and color to the space.” To recreate the look, visit Steal This Look: Scott Newkirk Bedroom.
