Drapes separating LR and DR Sign In/Join 
posted
Here is a new HGTV twist: Drapes are employed to separate the dining and living areas when desired, such as after a dinner. Check photo #8, ref the main living area.
IMHO this comes off as a bit "ketch"-y but maybe it is an old, "new" idea in limited square footage homes? Cottages often have curtains.
i.e. in our own home, 1700 sq ft, a curtain screens off the dual bathroom sink area from the main bedroom; a sliding door is used for the shower/toilet area privacy.

may I be of service, Monsieur/Damme?

I think this idea is smart. I've seen homeowners use the ceiling to create the division line. This is clever! Now, if there are children.....I might keep the curtains pulled back. Smile Love them, but know how their little hands are. Plus, this looks more formal...and there are times for formal.

I agree Trish when the children are around, the drapes are open.
