Decor Muse: a Nursery?!

Okay... so it is kinda weird that I'm posting a baby nursery as inspiration for college dorm/apartment decor. Don't worry---there's no looming stork or anything. I just believe that you can find decor inspiration in a variety of places, including childrens' and babies' rooms. This is one of those rooms. I'm in love with it in all its white and turquoise glory.

Vintage dresser: check. Elegant lamp: check. Pretty pale blue and turquoise poms: check check check and check.

This armoire is p-e-r-f-e-c-t.

I'd love to curl up in that chair with my Kindle.

Basically, take out the crib, stuffed animals, and baby books... replace 'em with a pretty daybed, several pairs of ladylike high-heeled shoes, and some decor books... and this room would be ideal.

I found this lovely space via House of Turquoise, the blog that shares my love for a certain shade of greenish blue. ;)




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.)
