An Attic After My Own Heart

This is the first glimpse I caught of this lovely attic bedroom.  It had me at, "Hello."  Or rather, it had me at its antique wooden vanity, gleaming white tulip chair, and sunlight pouring in through windows. 

My attic doesn't have such tall windows or lofty ceilings, so I will admit to being a little envious.  I love the little window that the bed is nudged up next to here.  And that distressed turquoise side table is perfect with all the pale pink in the room.

Love the architectural element hung over the dresser.  (Doesn't the metallic finish on the dresser remind you of mercury glass?)

I love seeing what knick-knacks and odd items end upon others' bookshelves. 

Colorful fans and fresh brighten up this mirrored dresser top while a country-chic tray collects clutter.

That daybed on the opposite side of the attic is to-die-for.  I love all the little details.  The dark, wrought-iron curtain rods over the white windows.  The antique chandelier over the daybed.  The reflection of an adorable little canine in the lower-left-hand side of the photo!

This attic is part of The Martinez Family's Modern Mountain Turkey Coop tour on Apartment Therapy.  To see the rest of their house, head over now!

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.
