cjpowell8356's Expressive Dorm Room

cjpowell8356 submitted photos of her dorm to the Lovely Undergrad Flickr group. How you decorate your dorm room is basically an extension of you. Your decor is one way of expressing yourself. So I love that this dorm-dweller has so many personal touches throughout the space.

First of all, props to cjpowell for the Pink Floyd poster. I'm also loving the the pretty quilt on the bed, the beautiful dream catcher (I want one!), and the floral pillow.

Also, she displays wall art in one of my favorite ways---clip boards!! With clip boards you can have an ever-changing display of your favorite pictures, magazine clippings, post-cards, etc. Genius. I'm pretty sure she diy'ed that peace sign mirror, too. :)

The photos in this post belong to cjpowell8356. Thanks for the pics!!




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.
