Asian Screen Southern Style...

This past week I came across this article and was mesmerized... it's a spread on the home of fashion designer Erin Fetherston. One photo that caught my eye was her bedroom and the over sized hand painted Asian screen leaning against the wall.

I loved the scale and it's such a fresh idea.

So, the other day while hunting through my daily Craiglist searches I came across this screen for $75:

Sorry for the poor quality of photos - grabbed them off Craigslist site!

It's not as large as the Asian screen but it could give you the same effect. Plus to me, it looks more like a swamp scene which is fitting down here in NOLA!

What do you think? I think it could be pretty cool in the right space ... I'd also need to see it in person to see the quality of the painting on the screen.

I also found this screen on Etsy - for $500! It has a lot more punch to it though than the Craigslist find...

This screen is interesting... although I'd feel like I was eating at a Chinese restaurant!

Any thoughts on Asian screens? Love em or hate em?

love them, and I love the swamp scene idea though I agree the one from etsy is more of a stunnah. Why don't you hire me to hand-paint an even better swamp scene for you :-)

Love them! My mom has had one in the living room for as long as I can remember...appropriate being from the Philippines, right? It's been up for about 30 years now and still in great shape.

Love the blue Etsy one, but only if the rest of the room is clean and white!
Love the blog!
