I had a daybed for a few years as a young girl. It was very much like the one in the second photo of this post, but white with brass details. (I wish I woulda had the idea to paint it some bold color like that!)

If you live in a dorm, daybeds are a great option because they can function as not only a bed but also a place to sit. (Kinda like a couch...) See if you can move the dorm-provided furniture into a school storage space and replace the dorm bed with a fabulous daybed. Daybeds are perfect for apartment dwellers, too.

My younger sister has a daybed and it works really well, because she can chill and watch video games with friends and still have a place to sleep.

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.
