Pretty Patterns, Pretty Pastels

Yesterday's post featured a bold, bright, modern apartment.  Now today, let's tour something a little softer, more feminine, with a subtler color palette.  Welcome to alid3y's lovely space! 

 Love this little workspace nook!


She made this chalkboard calendar.

Here's a close up of that desk in the back corner of the living room. 

All photos in this post belong to alid3y; see more of her Flickr photos here.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find any mention of a blog or website... I wish she had one!

Well shoot, if I had known about this blog post I wouldn't have deleted some of these photos. Oopsy! I've thought about starting my own design blog, but I'm not sure if I have the time or energy. I'm always making changes in my apartment as I get bored or just inspired by other people's homes hehe.


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.)

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