Would you like a decor consultation? Tell me in this survey

In my recent insight survey and via emails, some of you lovely readers have asked if I offer small scale interior design consultations for your small spaces – as well as other services like help setting up a blog or resume design. Right now, I don't. But if it's something that enough are you are interested, I'd love to start! 

(Click through for the survey.)

Right now, I try to answer as many of your decor questions and design dilemmas as possible. But the truth is: I work full-time; blog (here); write; and do projects as much as possible outside of work – while trying to maintain something that somewhat resembles a social life with my boyfriend, friends, and family.

Decorating my small space and inspiring you in designing yours is my favorite hobby. But when it comes to picking out colors, arranging furniture, or pulling off a certain you're going for, it's often a lot more involved than simply answering an email. I want to help as much as possible, yet that level of helping takes time. And this girl's got student loans and bills to pay.

So I'm taking the next step and asking you: Is there some service you wish I offered? What would you be willing to pay for it? And what other insight do you have?

Your insight matters on The Lovely Side. 

So take a three-minute break and take this little survey.

When I click the link, it says I need permission to view the survey. Am I missing something?
Oops! There was some weird default setting that caused that. It's been fixed and the survey is now available.

Thanks for letting me know! I had no idea otherwise. :S


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.
