Chic Dorm Featured on Apartment Therapy

This is one of those dorms rooms that are so chic, that you can hardly believe that it is actually a dorm room. It belongs to Rachel, a student in Atlanta, Georgia... and it was featured on Apartment Therapy. I love that she worked with the wood tones of the dorm room furniture rather than fight against it. Orange pairs well with the warm wood. I like all of the white she incorporated as well... the comforter, her laptop, the material she used on top of the desk, bookcase, and dresser.
All photos were found via Apartment Therapy DC.



It is a lovely and a well organized apartment. Design is great, but I admire the organizations skills here.


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 .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
