Teeny Tiny Pad, Big on Style

One of my favorite features on Apartment Therapy is their yearly "Small Cool" contest.  I've been meaning to share this for a while... so here's one of my favorite "Teeny-Tiny" entries from 2010.  I'm pretty much obsessed with Leah and Liam's 285 square-foot apartment in the Upper East side of NYC.

This is my favorite shot of the apartment.  I would love to have an apartment with exposed-brick-painted-white walls and hardwood floors.  I'm also quite in love with their gray fainting couch and the eccentric octopus pillow that occupies it.

So much art! I love it.

Love the kitchen. It's super small, but the vertical storage on
the wall is great.  And I love the electric guitars hung up.

Here's the floor plan of their teeny-tiny place.  All photos in this post are from Apartment Therapy.

What's your favorite part of this place?

That fainting couch is pretty amazing! And I love how organized their kitchen is - I think that's pretty necessary in such a small space.


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.
