Design Your Sign with Modani: Decorating Like an Aquarius


Ever wonder how your zodiac sign influences your design style? Our lovely friends over at Modani have created a graphic detailing just that. I love anything that combines personality traits and decorating preferences, so it was fun to determine my design taste in a celestial way.

Inventive. Artful. Mixes neutrals with pops of color. Finds new uses for common (or uncommon) items. Sounds like the stars have my style pinpointed perfectly. 

Modani inspired me to create a mood board for my living room based on my zodiac-inspired style and incorporating my favorite modern furniture. In this fantasy living room, I'd set the stage with an eye-catching fretwork rug and brick wallpaper as a backdrop. I'd mix antique-inspired styles with modern lines – like pairing a sleek sofa with that gorgeous black fainting couch. I love the look of stacking vintage suitcases as a side table and you know deer are near and dear to my decorating heart. I'd also bring in some glitzy accents in the form of glittery chandeliers, Venetian mirrors, and shining candle holders – as well as some colorful pillows. 

Check out Modani's zodiac graphic below. Does it describe your decorating style?

Here are my favorite items from Modani:

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 .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

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.
