Candy-Coated Decor

I have a crush on this lovely interior. I came across MissKittyKat's "Home Sweet Home" photo set on Flickr. The cotton-candy pink, egg-shell blue, and lime green are absolutely pretty. And the eclectic mix of patterns, textures, prints, nostalgia, and new is fun and pleasing to the eye. In the above photo I really like those white shelves above the bed. What a great way to vertically display/store books and pictures.

Above: These shelves hold an array of tins and baskets... some new and some vintage.

Above: Isn't this the most relaxing space with all those shades of blue?

Above: A fabulous and functional workspace. I love the light let in by the gorgeous windows... and I'm smitten with that funky pink mannaquin bust.

Above: Here's a cozy corner that I could definitely see myself curled up in reading my favorite decor magazines. Those vintage lanterns add an unexpected but romantic touch.

Above: The television corner and an adorable chest of drawers.

Above: This is exactly the kind of dresser I'm trying to find for my bedroom.

Above: Last, but definitely not least, is this fab chair. Love.

All of these photos belong to MissKittKat on Flickr. I suggest you visit her photostream and ogle over the many colorful and creative corners of her home.


P.S. MissKittyKat also has a lovely blog called Pink Friday. It's in Swedish and I have yet to figure out how to translate it. ...But it has amazingly pretty pictures and inspirational eye-candy.


when in need of translating, i always use Google Translate:

p.s. i'm not sure where you got the picture, but that is definitely not Eckerd College.


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.)
