Another Dose of Bedroom Inspiration

Apartment Therapy
Hands down: the bedroom is my favorite room in the house.  So I can't get enough lovely, inspiring spaces.  Like the one above.  Beautiful hardwood floors, a vintage bed, and an over-abundance of creamy white.  The bed is positioned at an angle and away from the wall.  The radiator at left is topped off with planters that add a small punch of color.  The yellow chandelier is sunny and cheerful.  And the pillows are the prettiest shades of crisp apple green.

Then we have this beautiful, tranquil space.  The minty pale turquoise hue on the walls is so calming.  I'm head-over-heels for that bed---an antique silhouette modernized by a brushed steel finish.  A black dresser here, a white chest there.  And then a nice mix of blue, white, and green on the bed.

Oh, gray walls, how I love thee!  Do you see the ever-so-slightly blushing pink tinge to this gray?  Lovely.  While I'm not crazy about the spindly bed-frame, I'm smitten with the reddish coral bedding and floral rug.  The artful arrangement of botanical illustrations is wall decor I can definitely get on board with.  And that minimal, industrial chandelier?  Want.

Back to basics with this white and beige room.  The built shelves are envy-worthy and accessorized just the right amount.  The billowy cream bedding is gorgeous.  And I love the way the vanilla-hued curtains pool just a little bit on the wooden floor.  This is definitely a comfortable and cottage-y retreat.

This eclectic set up is right up my alley.  I just can't get over how everything is mixed-and-matched to perfection.  Orange peony tapestry + gray and white damask bedding + turquoise floor lamp + traditional nightstand + velvet pillows + tiny plants + stack of books + woodsy art + metal screen... stuff you'd never think to put together.  But it works!  And I love it.

Print overload.  Only a pattern-obsessed individual like myself could handle living and sleeping in this room without getting dizzy.  The bedding reminds me of my own!  Now if only I could find some wallpaper like that...

Finally, but certainly not least--- isn't this lovely?!  The blue is not a color I'd normally think to use, but I love it paired with the goldenrod yellow and crisp white.  Mirror finish nightstands disappear.  And the orange pillow is an unexpected splash of color in a carefully matched room.  Fabulous.

I decided that I need a little chandelier like the one in the first bedroom and found this DIY http://www.heygorg.com/2011/09/diy-paint-swatch-chandelier.html in case anyone's interested! It looks really easy. Just make three and hang them at different heights with fishing line or other clear thread! How adorable! :D

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.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
