Decorating Ideas | Where to Put My Turntable


To refresh and revamp my apartment for the new year, I'm doing a little bit of rearranging in my space this weekend. One of my main missions is to move my turntable. My lovely little Crosley (just like the one above, but orange) shouldn't be hidden away in the corner of the room. There's just something about vinyl and I love listening to my tiny (but growing) collection of records. I feel that if I move the turntable to a spot more out in the open, I'll use it even more and be able to spread the music throughout the apartment. 

So I did a bit of digging around on Pinterest for inspiration. I LOVE the little round table pictured above. If I could find something like that for my turntable, I'd snatch it up in a heartbeat. 



I also like the idea of a long, sleek console. This is totally different than my typical decorating style and current vintage French provincial furnishings. I'd adore the contrast of frilly vs. sleek, plus it'd be nice for my turntable to share space with the television.


A little cart like this would be lovely – especially since I always need more space for books and vintage treasures like my own old fans.




Here's where my turntable is located now:


Not bad – it's conveniently located next to my desk and writing nook. But I'd really love to open it up to the rest of the room... or maybe relocate it to the living room.

Do you have a turntable? What's your setup?

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.
