Chic Neutral Retreat

Above: The renter of this campus apartment wasn't
allowed to paint the walls, but decorated her
bedroom to remind her of a "small chic hotel."

Above: The furniture is all sleek, black, and sophisticated.

Above: She did all the artwork herself and used a
palette of white, cream, beige, and chocolaty brown.

Above: I think the bed looks especially inviting and
luxurious. She also made the floor-length curtains herself.

This apartment dweller loves natural earth tones and she used them beautifully. As you can tell in this bedroom, white, cream, brown, and beige don't have to be drab. In fact, they can be very calming, pleasing to the eye, and luxurious. It makes for a peaceful retreat after busy days on campus. It's also more grown-up than your typical college apartment and very chic.

This apartment and the photos of it belong to robint06 from HGTV's Rate My Space.

Amore.

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.
