Black, White, Teal, & Flocked | Dorm Ditto #3

Photobucket
(The above and below dorm are images that I found on Photobucket...
so unfortunately I do not know how to properly credit the source. If the
images belong to you or you know who the original source is, please
let me know so that I may properly credit them on my blog. Thanks.)

Color & Pattern: The decorator of this dorm stuck to three colors... mostly black and white, with punches of light blue. I absolutely love the pattern of the bedding. There's something about any damask print that draws me to it. The major aspects of the room (bedding, pillows, desk, etc.) all stick to the color scheme... but so do the minor accessories! Did you notice that the squirt bottle and tissue box on the desk are also that pretty teal-ish blue color? Several silver-tinted accessories bring in a bit of sheen.

Storage: There are parts of this room that are not seen, such as the closet and other areas where clutter often tends to gather. But from what I can tell, it's quite organized. Organized enough that the boarder can have a few shelves filled with decorative accessories, picture frames, and sentimental objects. The desk is quite tidy. And there's plenty of bulletin board and dry erase territory to post/jot notes and reminders.

Seating: I can't really talk about the seating in this room because I only found so many photos. There may or may not be ample seating here. I like to imagine that there's a sleek black futon dressed up with blue or damask-printed throw pillows. If not... I hope she doesn't mind having people plop down on her bed.

Decor: This dorm room definitely has a theme going on. The girl who decorated it let her personality shine through without letting the room get lost in her personality. There are lots of pretty little accessories all around... fancy photo frames, French-inspired objects such as that tiny Eiffel Tower lamp, the LAUGH letters, and a vase with flowers. By keeping with simple color choices, she was able to bring in lots of objects that help to make a dorm feel more like a home.

I love these dorm room pictures! They are very inspiring for my own place.

I'd love to know how they got those shelves to stick, since most/all colleges don't let you put nails in the walls. Was it with those command strips that go with those temporary hooks or something a little stronger??

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
