Coming Up: Fall 2010 Dorm Decor Report

(above image via: here.)

Stay tuned to the blog tomorrow and the next day (the 12th and 13th) for a delightful forecast of decor trends to incorporate into your dorm or apartment this fall. Why do this in May? Because the earlier you start planning your space, the more organized you'll be and the prettier your space will be once fall comes around!

Here's a glimpse into the future:
Rich Color + Gray + Sustainability
Shine + Wallpaper + Vintage + Ruffles
Rugs on Rugs + B&W + Quilts
(and minus some furry critters.)

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 .

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.
