Guy Dorm!

Above: The room is decorated in a color scheme of neutrals, earthy greens, and dark red. The 5' x 10' vinyl mural of a Japanese garden scene was purchased for $75 from getbiggies.com. That's a good deal for such a big statement---the wall mural truly transforms the cinder-block walls and add visual interest to the room.

Above: Dark red curtains match the red microwave and red pillows on the bed. And a multi-headed lamp can cast light wherever needed.

Above: A very well organized closet space.

Can you believe that this dorm room belongs to a guy?! Yeah, a guy! I normally don't feature guys' dorms on here because, well... how many fabulously decorated guys' rooms have you seen in your residence hall? This dorm is visually pleasing while still maintaining enough of a masculine, laid back feel that guys like. So if your boyfriend or brother needs some desperate design help concerning their college living space, take some cues from this place.

This dorm and the photos of it are from aubreyjoy at HGTV's Rate My Space.

Amore.

The Japanese garden mural looks terrific. I could imagine waking up to see that fine print in front of me.

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.

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.

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.)
