My Bedroom Inspiration Board | Floral + Stripes, Red + Green, Vintage + Eclectic


I've been fine-tuning the revamp for my bedroom since selling all my vintage French provincial furniture. Above is the mood board I created to keep me on track and focused. (I tend to get very sidetracked as soon I set foot into an antique store or thrift shop.) 

I'm actually sticking to a color scheme (sorta) in the space: vibrant crimson, fresh yellow-green, and leathery brown with splashes of black, grass green, and burlap beige.
Floral will mingle with stripes. I'm going to double layer curtains – solid red on the outside, sheer ivory in the center. Furniture will have clean, sleek lines with the exception of my frilly iron headboard and vintage black nightstand. Oh, and I'll be bringing in my big Gone with the Wind poster framed as a spotlight-stealing piece of art.

The little desk area will go in my closet nook. I'm hoping to find or diy a simple desk and thrift a file cabinet – both will get painted in a fresh, limey chartreuse. So many do-it-yourself plans and projects are piling up on my list! I just need the weather to get nice and warm and dry so that I can take them on. :)

What do you think?

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.

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.

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.)
