Muted Mix of Old + New

Big comfy bed, big mirror, furry rugs, crisp white walls, hardwood floors, a vintage mannequin, ballet slippers, tall stacks of books, big windows, industrial chandelier, black and white photography... all this adds up to a very lovely space.

What I really love about the kitchen is all the sleek white and then the little vintage, well-worn desk where she keeps her computer. That contrast of sleek vs. shabby chic works so well when everything is white.

The catch-all space. I love the photos on the wall, the hung necklaces, and the various accessories strewn about. Accessories are always clues to a personality.

Lovin' the vintage books.

An up-close shot of the counter space. It's a gorgeous little vignette, yes?

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.)
