Crazy for Copper | Inspiration + Items

copper



Copper is my favorite metallic. Yes, I even like it better than rose gold. Copper is warm and flattering. It's versatile – it can be rustic and industrial, burnished and antiqued, crisp and contemporary. It has a gleam that can work in your wardrobe, decor scheme, or beauty routine. Above, I rounded up a wishlist of some of my favorite copper items – from a shiny copper Moscow mule and cute 2-cents notebook to a copper-hued watch and rosy lipstick with just a tinge of penny. Below, I'm sharing some of my favorite copper inspiration for bringing more copper into my decor.


This bed reeeeally makes me want to spray paint my red headboard copper.
I'm trying to restrain myself, but it's probably going to happen eventually.


A big copper tub to soak in?! Yesss!
It reminds me of copper tubs from period movies.


These circle sequins are an easy, simple way to bring in a little copper sparkle.
I love how the copper compliments the pale pink and makes the hot pink pop!


What a lovely rustic, cottagey kitchen – and what a view!
The copper sink adds just the right amount of gleam.


Oh, how lovely this space is – from the antique floor to the pretty tile textures.
But most of all, I'm swooning over that copper accent wall. 


What's your favorite metallic? Silver, copper, gold, rose gold?

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.
