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 .

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.
