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 .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

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

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.
