FinelyInc's Reading Nook + More

The photos in this post are from finelyInc's "home sweet home" photo set on Flickr. Immediately fell in love with the above photo of a reading nook. Maybe it's that rich red throw. maybe it's the big comfy chair. It just looks like a gorgeous place to curl up and read a novel.
Things I like in the above photo: That candlestick. All those books in the background. And the unexpected oar on on the bookcake.
Isn't that bed inviting? That's what I noticed first. And then my eyes were drawn down to the exquisite stone floor.
More stone floors and an elegant wood dining table.
A close up of the lovely throw pillows on the couch. I'm really smitten wit that pale blue one.

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.
