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!

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 .

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.
