Olioboard: Eclctic Chic Living Room

White walls, high ceilings, thick moulding, and hardwood floors... this room had good bones to begin with.  Pale blues are brought in with the curtain panels and rug, keeping things cool and airy.  A gray sofa with a masculine silhouette takes centerstage, accented with an ampersand and deer pillow.  Crisp greenish-gold is scattered throughout the space on accessories and furniture.  The dark, modern coffee table boasts a vintage typewriter and stack of old books.  Over the fireplace hangs a chalkboard featuring favorite quotes.  In one corner, a bold splash of red appears in the form of a velvet wingback chair.  In the other corner sits a green desk, charcoal-hued ghost chair, and ladder-style bookshelf.  A feminine chandelier tops it all off.

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.)
