Apartment Decorating -- Curtained Bookshelves

Curtained Bookshelves

One thing apartments often have going for them is open wall space. Rework a pair of sturdy bookshelves into an attractive storage wall:
-- Cover them with curtains that match or complement your window treatments (for an extra touch, try pinning a wire sunburst or other lightweight art to the fabric, like we did here).
-- Place the shelves side by side, or use a floor-length mirror to separate them and give the illusion that the room expands past the shelves.
-- To make your ceilings seem taller, hang the curtains from the ceiling, rather than from the top of the bookshelf.
