Bookcase. A large, open shelving unit makes a natural divider for a bedroom area in a studio. In this photo, a colorful, eclectic mix of books and collectibles is artfully arranged on the shelves. The arrangement catches the eye so well that you might barely notice the bed located on the other side, neatly tucked into a private, cozy corner. You can find many available options like this online; this one is from Ikea. Bookshelf: Kallax, Ikea; find more bookshelves
Open ShelvingA simple open bookshelf is one of the easiest ways to create a temporary or flexible form of separation between one area and another. And the wonderful thing is that the open shelving lets the light through. You have a partition, but you still have a bright and airy space.
