100 Square Meter Apartment in Berlin

Let's take a tour of Lillian Day's apartment.  The 100 square-meter, 3.5 room apartment is located on the ground floor of a 100-year-old building in Berlin, Germany.  

The color of green painted on the wall behind the sink is gorgeous.  And I love all the little details: the neat row of spices in identical corked glass bottles, the owl perched on a small vintage radio, and the artwork.

This is the type of chair that I dream of finding at antique and thrift stores---lush green color, mid-century modern feel, timeless silhouette.  

I'm a huge fan of gray and white stripes.  (In fact, I'm wearing a gray-and-white-striped cardigan right now...hmmm...)  

I always say that my favorite color is turquoise, but charcoal comes up a close second.  This deep gray finds its way into my wardrobe and decor.  I love it on Lillian's bedroom walls.  It looks beautiful with the ivory trim and rich blue curtains.

Cute wallflowers, a yellow lamp that pops and a curled-up snuggly kitty. Perfect.

I love low-profile couches.  I also like
the & hung between the windows.  

A bright desk space.  And colorful pom garland.  Cute. 

The bibliophile in me is swooning.  So many books!  So much color!  And a chair nearby to curl up with a great book or magazine.  

I'm always looking for ways to store my own scarves... so I'm quite taken with this method of clothes-pinning them to a string across a short, empty expanse of wall. 

   I thought these plants in shiny aluminum buckets were uber-adorable.

The cute decorations in the kitchen really grab my attention - I feel like most people don't think to put pictures and/or knick-knacks there and instead view it merely based on functionality. The kitchen is a room too! Equality! haha. I also love the "&" between the windows - small piece, big statement.

did you make the wallflowers or buy those somewhere?


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.

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

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.)
