Get the Look: Felicity Smoak's Apartment | On Screen Decor: Arrow

Hands down, Felicity Smoak is my favorite character on the CW's Arrow. She's smart, sweet, and funny. She has a killer fashion sense. And her awkward quirks are downright adorable. Apparently in Season 3 – I'm not actually there yet – you get a peek at Felicity's apartment (pictured below). I think the design suits our favorite IT girl perfectly: clean, modern, feminine, and a little eclectic.

The clean, modern lines of the sofa are balanced out by the luxurious tufts of that velvet settee. There are some rich jewel tones (deep raspberry, dark navy) brightened up by bursts of buttery yellow and a pinkish lavender. The apartment itself – with its neutral walls, white trim, and hardwood floors – are pretty typical of a rental, making it easy to relate to and envision your own belongings mixed in.

The first thing you need to pull of Felicity's decor? A Robin Hood poster! I absolutely adore that clever little addition that the set designer through in: a vintage poster of 1938's The Adventures of Robin Hood starring Errol Flynn.

Felicity's furniture selection is very simple and easy to copy. You can get away with contemporary pieces in neutral colors – like a basic beige sofa, a simple round end table, and sleek tv console that you could easily see in Target or Ikea. The key is to throw in something unexpectedly glamorous, like the velvet tufted loveseat. Two fancy chairs or a bench with a similar aesthetic would do just fine. (Check out antique stores for something frilly that could work as-is or be reupholstered.)

Pull in the same blocks of color by throwing down a pale fuchsia rug, putting up navy blue curtains, and dressing up the couch with a golden yellow blanket. Then, bring in some pattern on a small scale like Felicity (errr, uh... her set designer) did with the floral-printed throw pillows. 

Don't forget the little details. Felicity has a lot of books scattered around, so pull some down from your bookcases. She may be tech-savvy, but she's fashion-savvy, too. If you look closely in the upper left hand corner of the first image in this post, you'll see some framed artwork of shoe illustrations. It's a quirky and girly touch – very Felicity!

Lastly, bring in some life. Thanks to the big houseplant, small plant, and vase of flowers, Felicity's apartment has an extra bit of energy and freshness.

Are you an Arrow fan? What do you think of Felicity's apartment? What bits of her style would you like to steal for your space?


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 .

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.
