In my cottage, I added a single panel curtain, though I have used a pair in the past. One curtain does the trick here. The hallway is a brick floor and one wall is wood paneling (the other is two windows), so, to give it some 'oomph' and add color and pattern in both the living room and hall, I added a blue and white check Swedish style curtain. It also distinguishes between the two areas since there is no door here. I got these curtains a long time ago on sale at JC Penney's home store. I don't think I paid more than $15 for them, so they were a bargain.

|Curtain is blue, but shows as 'grey-ish' here because of the light|
|Rugs add more color and tie in with the blue checks in the living room|
|Looking into the hallway, I know, the paneling is very 70's,|
but I love the look of it here - mirrors are from IKEA
and the 'LAKE' sign is vintage

The curtain adds just enough to this application to give the room some
'oomph' as I like to call it. I can switch it up with a different colored
curtain or add a sheer with it.
When I lived in England, I knew some friends who liked to cover their
front door with a velvet curtain to keep out the cold.
How have you visually separated a space with no door?
