2010: A Year of Turquoise

Have you heard? Pantone declared turquoise as "Color of the Year" for 2010! This is exciting news for me, considering that turquoise is my all-time favorite color. I surround myself with it. My bedroom is painted turquoise. There are turquoise accessories everywhere (radio, vintage suitcase, ottomans, pillows, glassware, picture frames, etc. etc. etc.) And I like to wear it, too.

Nothing makes me happier than to think of seeing turquoise everywhere I look this year. I can get sick of too much of some colors---like hot pink, orange, and red. But I swoon rather than wince when thinking of an abundance of aquamarine.

So in the spirit of everything teal and my passionate love for the shade of greenish-blue, I'm here to help you incorporate some of this lovely color into your space. To get started, check out some of these fabulous finds from UrbanOutfitters.com:

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.
