Olioboard: Charming Neutral Office

I usually go for lots of color, but every once in a while I yearn for a more neutral palette.  Creamy neutrals paired with white, black, and gray come together to create a chic, relaxing office space perfect for writing, blogging, or curling up with a good book and spot of tea.  Walls the color of cafe au lait.  Milky white trim.  And sheer ivory curtains.  A sleek, no-fuss black desk topped with a gunmetal lamp, rattan accessories, and elegant white orchids.  A linen inspiration board hung next to painted black wooden sign displaying a French quote.  An industrial wastebasket tucked underneath the desk.  Classic black and white stripes liven up the floor.  In the corner sits an ivory and charcoal chair in a fun print.  A simple round side table for tea and books.

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.)
