Candy-Coated Decor

I have a crush on this lovely interior. I came across MissKittyKat's "Home Sweet Home" photo set on Flickr. The cotton-candy pink, egg-shell blue, and lime green are absolutely pretty. And the eclectic mix of patterns, textures, prints, nostalgia, and new is fun and pleasing to the eye. In the above photo I really like those white shelves above the bed. What a great way to vertically display/store books and pictures.

Above: These shelves hold an array of tins and baskets... some new and some vintage.

Above: Isn't this the most relaxing space with all those shades of blue?

Above: A fabulous and functional workspace. I love the light let in by the gorgeous windows... and I'm smitten with that funky pink mannaquin bust.

Above: Here's a cozy corner that I could definitely see myself curled up in reading my favorite decor magazines. Those vintage lanterns add an unexpected but romantic touch.

Above: The television corner and an adorable chest of drawers.

Above: This is exactly the kind of dresser I'm trying to find for my bedroom.

Above: Last, but definitely not least, is this fab chair. Love.

All of these photos belong to MissKittKat on Flickr. I suggest you visit her photostream and ogle over the many colorful and creative corners of her home.


P.S. MissKittyKat also has a lovely blog called Pink Friday. It's in Swedish and I have yet to figure out how to translate it. ...But it has amazingly pretty pictures and inspirational eye-candy.


when in need of translating, i always use Google Translate:

p.s. i'm not sure where you got the picture, but that is definitely not Eckerd College.


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.
