Hart of Dixie Inspired Bedroom Decor | Reader Request

All the way from Italy, Daria wrote in to The Lovely Side asking for a little inspiration in recreating Zoe's room from Hart of Dixie. While I'm slightly familiar with the show, I've never watched it. And finding photos of Zoe's space was a bit of a challenge. However, I was able to whip up an inspiration board based on the above and below photos.

I'm guess Zoe's room isn't always such a mess! ;) 

How would I describe my glimpse into Zoe's room? Class feminine meets crisp modern meets southern cottage chic. Here's how I recommend pulling off Zoe's bedroom style.

Blue Wallpaper: Search online or your local home improvement store for a wallpaper (or renter-friendly removable wallpaper) in a similar subtle geometric pattern and cobalt color. Or paint your walls that color of blue.

Upholstered Headboard: Not only are upholstered headboards widely available (try Target and Urban Outfitters), but if you're handy you could create your own for less by searching Pinterest for a DIY tutorial. A basic beige will do if you can't find the exact pattern, but you could also stencil or draw the pattern on.

Pastel Bedding: Mix and match your bed sheets in shades of buttery yellow and rosy pink. It looks like Zoe's comforter is beige with white polka dots, but a plain beige will do, too. Just add some beige and white patterned pillows to get the same look and feel.

Wall Art: I love that lattice-like metal cutout thing (is it a screen?) in Zoe's room, but that's probably expensive and difficult to come by. Instead, get the same style on a smaller scale with some metal cut-art wall art. Search thrift shops and online. If it's in the wrong color, you can always give it a nice coat of metallic spray paint.

White Nightstands: This is easy. Find two simple nightstands (they don't have to be the same) with clean lines and edges. Paint them both a bright, crisp white and replace hardware with something shiny, silver, and modern. The clean lines balance out the headboard's feminine curves. 

Smoky Gray Curtains: I think you could find some smoky gray or blue sheers anywhere from a home decor store to Walmart or Target. These are versatile. You could even go with sheer whites to let more light in.

Glass Lamps: Those lamp bases I see in Zoe's apartment (glass base, round shapes, blueish tint) are everywhere right now. I've seen them online and in stores like Target. With such a glitzy lamp base, keep the shade simple... like solid beige, a light burlap, or even white.

Girly Accessories: There are lots of flowers around Zoe's bedroom. Bring in a vase of your own. Add in more feminine touches with things like small, pretty candles or a floral notebook on your nightstand. Store away clutter in light-hued wicker baskets. 

Natural Toned Flooring: It appears that Zoe has light hardwood floors, but if you're not so lucky you can still get a similar look. Search online for rugs that look like wood planks. Or opt for a less expensive rug with white and beige stripes. 

Hope this helps, Daria!


Disclaimer: I'm neither the the set designer nor in touch with the set designer for these television and movie rooms. Unfortunately, I do not know the sources for most of the decor, furniture, etc. These inspiration boards and posts are meant to show a similar look and help guide you in shopping for items that will help you get there. If you really want to know the source of a specific item (for example, where a pair of curtains can be purchased), feel free to leave your question in the comments. If I knew, it would definitely be listed in the post. However, maybe another The Lovely Side reader out there will know!

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.)
