If you’re designer Angela Robinson, you install custom lightweight sliding glass doors—a modern take on traditional Japanese screens. “They separate the bedroom from the living room while still allowing daylight to filter through,” says Robinson. And when the homeowners are craving a little more privacy than glass panels allow? They can just draw the linen curtains.
