Shabby Chic Decor Details

This beautifully aged vintage door adds architectural interest and acts as large-scale wall decor.

An antique white cabinet can keep books, magazines, remote controls, and other clutter out-of-site. The top is accessorized with an old window that frames vintage wallpaper.

This lovely little side table is the epitome of shabby chic. And I love the blue glass candlesticks... sooooo pretty!

Pairing blue with pink is a to-go-to color scheme in many shabby chic spaces. This little set-up of lovely blue glass jars and pretty pink flowers on a vintage tray is impeccable.

A vintage tablecloth is draped over a cozy antique chair and dressed up with two pillows: one that boasts frilly texture and another that boasts a beautiful damask pattern.

Last but not least, a pretty vintage gown dresses up an otherwise bare doorway. I love the pale bluish-seafoam color.

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.
