Style Cure Day 5 | Floor Plan of My Bedroom

For Day 5 of the Style Cure, Apartment Therapy assigned participants to create a floor plan of the space they'll be decorating. (I didn't skip Day 4. It just consisted of setting up a one-room outbox, so it doesn't require a blog post.) 

Above is my bedroom floor plan. I'll admit that I didn't take the time to take exact measurements, but the floor plan pretty much matches up spatially and furniture-wise. The door along the top wall leads to the hallway. That's a radiator in the bottom right corner. My desk and chair are in the bottom left corner, right next to the closet that has a window (and will become a book nook). In the top left corner I have a dresser, hutch, and tall lingerie chest. Obviously, you can see my bed and nightstands along the right wall.

The bed will definitely stay where it is, but I'm undecided about the dressers, hutch, and desk. Those may end up moved around a bit. We'll just have to see.

If you made a floor plan of your space and are taking part in the Style Cure, please leave a link to your blog post on The Lovely Side's Facebook page so I can follow along on your decorating! :)



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.
