Literary Chic Decor: Book Page Wallpaper

A Well Dressed Home
I'm in love with the idea of being surrounded by book pages.  According to the do-it-yourself post on A Well Dressed Home, wallpapering your walls with book pages is easy, a little tedious, and not as permanent as it sounds.  The pages add such visual interest---color, texture, words.

Coffee. Camera. Kombucha. Keyboard.

What do you think?  Would surrounding yourself with book pages be overwhelming or inspiring?  Would you prefer pages with all text, vintage illustrations, or something more colorful like the pages from a comic book?  For me, it'd definitely be inspiring to just be surrounded by words. :)

I've done this with sheet music in a couple different spots, too. If you don't have wall space, you can paper the inside of bookcase shelves.


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 .

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.
