Lauren's Happily Inspired 500 Sq. Foot Studio

Lauren's tiny studio apartment is exactly the kind of studio that makes me want one of my own.  I love her choice of colors (the orange, the green, the pops of red!) and her mixing of vintage (chair) with antique (trunk) with contemporary (sofa). 

I love her seating area.  The couch possesses clean, contemporary lines, but its tufted back lends a feminine feel.  The big, rustic trunk is gorgeous and I love that she utilizes it as a coffee table.  Patterned pillows add fun personality.  And that shabby chic white chair is adorable.  I also love the visual interest that is added to the floor with that graphic black-and-white striped rug.

Isn't it cozy? 

Oooh, I spot a Domino book on this desk!  I love finding those kindred spirits. ;)  This sleek black nesting desk pushes into itself to save floor space.  Plus, it looks like the perfect place to sit and blog.  (Lauren's blog is Live. Happy. Inspired.)

Her bathroom probably ranks in my top 10 favorite bathroom ever.  I love all the black and white---especially the chevron.

This Studio apartment is amazing. Almost makes me want a Studio. Her bathroom is marvelous. Never thought I would like a black and white bathroom, but she has done this one up lovely!


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.
