Muted Mix of Old + New

Big comfy bed, big mirror, furry rugs, crisp white walls, hardwood floors, a vintage mannequin, ballet slippers, tall stacks of books, big windows, industrial chandelier, black and white photography... all this adds up to a very lovely space.

What I really love about the kitchen is all the sleek white and then the little vintage, well-worn desk where she keeps her computer. That contrast of sleek vs. shabby chic works so well when everything is white.

The catch-all space. I love the photos on the wall, the hung necklaces, and the various accessories strewn about. Accessories are always clues to a personality.

Lovin' the vintage books.

An up-close shot of the counter space. It's a gorgeous little vignette, yes?

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 .

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.
