Division is a word with many meanings. It can relate to those long division math problems that used to give me the shivers in high school. It may be a word to denote the differences in groups of people. Division can relate to a department or division within a larger company. The breaking up of a large space or group into smaller parts is also known as division.
My home is divided. No, we don’t have a wall down the middle to keep my husband and I separated. Rather, the members of our household do not all cheer for the same state university athletic programs. I cheer for the Cyclones and my husband is a Hawkeye fan. We are each working on our boys, trying to sway them over to one side or another. It’s an ongoing competition at our house.
A friendly and beneficial way to divide a house is by the use of room dividers. These simple pieces work to visually and functionally add a transition from one part of the room to the other. Dividers come in many different shapes and sizes. The HMI Cow Girls Divider is a piece of artwork that provides a visually pleasing aesthetic to a large room. The hand-painted finish lends a simple, rustic flair to the painting and the crackle finish instantly gives an aged appearance. If the artwork is becoming overwhelming, turn the screen around to enjoy a simple solid color. At the size of 63” x 71” and four readjust able panels, this $450 piece of rustic decor offers a multitude of options for display.
