Dream House: Victorian with Turquoise Roof!

So I found my dream house.  Seriously.
I. Am. Swooning.

Gray stone. Wrap-around porch. Huge windows.
Victorian. Gothic ironwork. A turret. Fountain in the yard.
And... and... and... (wait for it...)
A turquoise roof?!

The room at the top of the turret would be all mine.
A dark, rich, luxurious place painted dark gray
and filled with French provincial furniture.
Artwork, books, typewriters, and candles.

I'd write there. Best-selling novels and these blog posts, of course.

Seriously.  This house was made for me.

The turquoise is very pretty and who doesn't love a tower?

I'll take one in pink please :-)

I wonder, is that a roof that is metal and has oxidized or is it painted turquoise? Either way very pretty! :)

So pretty! I want one so bad! :) I would love to live there and sleep in that tower every night. That color is just gorgeous.
I LOVE THIS!! I too am in love with porches! (did a whole post on it!)

Just outside Quebec City if I remember rightly. I took pictures of it!


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.

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

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.)
