Small Space Inspiration: Fashion Blogger's Studio

Even though I love my big bedroom, huge bathroom, and lovely hallway – I still can't help but crush on adorable small spaces. I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for tiny studio spaces that have been perfectly decorated. Like this fashion blogger's studio in San Francisco.

All the white, splashes of color, and mix-and-matched patterns are so lovely together. And the quirky elements are right up my alley. I love that the bed is scooted right up next to the window – perfect for window gazing and day dreaming!

The large antique dresser that holds the television has such a perfect blue color, aged surface, and vintage drawer pulls. I also like the idea of putting a dresser in the closet to create a little dressing room of sorts. 

Her space is definitely one that I'll keep coming back to for decorating inspiration – whether I'm in a large apartment or a teeny-tiny studio. 

These were just a few of the photos from Jessica's Mix & Match Studio tour featured on Apartment Therapy. There are so many more shots of her enviable closet, super cute kitchen, and beautiful details.

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.)
