Made2Create Dorm

White is embraced in this space, which makes it feel crisp and clean. White walls, white bedding, white furry rug, white mirror, white hanging lantern---it all adds up to chic. The desk is transformed into a vanity of sorts by layering a mirror and linen board that is used for hanging necklaces. LOVE the big, prettily patterned winged chair being used as a desk chair. Accessories are kept simple, shiny, and elegant. And round cushions can be used as a comfy place for friends to sit on.

I love how the ruffles in the hanging lantern mimic the floral ruffles of the bed pillow. A stylish lamp makes a gleaming decor statement, and since it is positioned between the bed and desk... it doubles as a desk lamp and nightstand lamp.

The DIY headboard adds visual interest without taking up space. (I'll be on the hunt for some instructions to copy this headboard.)

I simply ADORE this room! All the white looks so clean and simple. I wasn't sure if a rug on carpet would work - but this look adorable!

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.
