Pictured above is a bedroom shared by two girls. I love the crisp white walls paired with bold red and turquoise furniture. Unfortunately, most dorms are not furnished with such fabulous pieces... but I think this bedroom is very inspiring as far as furniture-arrangement goes. If you have a roomie and are looking for a unique way to arrange, take some cues from this room and go for near perfect symmetry. Limit yourselves to two colors that look good together... (she can pick a color, you can pick one.) Indulge in lots of white---leave the white walls nice and empty except for bold pieces of art, dress the beds in comfy white bedding, choose white accessories like white picture-frames. I also really like how the beds are in their own little nook; it's cozy and lends a feeling of privacy.




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.)
