Single with Personality

Check this single dorm room at Ann Arbor. The dorm-dweller grounded all the white walls with black furniture and used a color scheme of rich purple, poppy red, and orange. Poppy wall decals bloom from behind the headboard and couch. A purple rug and matching curtains add lush color and unity to the room. And fun pillows in various print add a pop of color and pattern to the space.



Eeek! True single love. Gosh do I adore that desk chair... Why do I feel like I've seen a lot of these things at Ikea?

This is absolutely adorable. I love it. The colors are awesome, and I'm a huge fan of wall decals. My roomie and I were planning to get one for our apartment but haven't been able to yet. Hopefully soon...

I want to know where you found this picture--- I live in Ann Arbor and have watched this dorm go from a pile of dirt to whats pictured above...
I'm really curious what it looks like inside but haven't found many pictures.
It makes me miss living in a dorm (almost). The dorm I lived in for college was awesome, I wish I was as into decor then as I am now...


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.)
