Teeny-Tiny | Inspiration from AT's Small, Cool 2010

It's time for Apartment Therapy's annual Small, Cool contest. :D I love seeing all the photos of real people's small spaces---especially the teeny-tiny ones. Here are some photos of recent entries:

(above two photos via Apartment Therapy: Lacey's DIY in the Details. For more photos + floor plan, click here.) Lacey's space is my favorite of the teeny-tiny entries so far. I love the subtle eclecticism, diy touches, and mix of furniture she has going on. I especially like the dresser her tv sits on. The bed looks comfy. The mirrored nightstand is lovely. And that chair looks like the perfect place to curl up with a good book or magazine.

(above photo via Apartment Therapy: Whitney's Well Organized Home. For more photos + floor plan, click here.) Whitney's small space is appealing because of all the crisp white and sunlight. She's also an organizer extraordinaire---check out that cabinetry! I'm completely smitten with the colorful quilt on her bed. And isn't that a sweet doggie?

(above photo via Apartment Therapy: Nicole's Vintage Beauty. For more photos + floor plan, click here.) I am a sucker for exposed brick and would love to live in a space that features some. And isn't Nicole's bed gorgeous?

(above photo via Apartment Therapy: Lindsay's Little Box. For more photos + floor plan, click here.) Lastly, I like Lindsay's place because of the pretty blue color scheme, easy-to-move coffee tables, tall stack of books, and cute pillows.

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 .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

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.
