100 Square Meter Apartment in Berlin

Let's take a tour of Lillian Day's apartment.  The 100 square-meter, 3.5 room apartment is located on the ground floor of a 100-year-old building in Berlin, Germany.  

The color of green painted on the wall behind the sink is gorgeous.  And I love all the little details: the neat row of spices in identical corked glass bottles, the owl perched on a small vintage radio, and the artwork.

This is the type of chair that I dream of finding at antique and thrift stores---lush green color, mid-century modern feel, timeless silhouette.  

I'm a huge fan of gray and white stripes.  (In fact, I'm wearing a gray-and-white-striped cardigan right now...hmmm...)  

I always say that my favorite color is turquoise, but charcoal comes up a close second.  This deep gray finds its way into my wardrobe and decor.  I love it on Lillian's bedroom walls.  It looks beautiful with the ivory trim and rich blue curtains.

Cute wallflowers, a yellow lamp that pops and a curled-up snuggly kitty. Perfect.

I love low-profile couches.  I also like
the & hung between the windows.  

A bright desk space.  And colorful pom garland.  Cute. 

The bibliophile in me is swooning.  So many books!  So much color!  And a chair nearby to curl up with a great book or magazine.  

I'm always looking for ways to store my own scarves... so I'm quite taken with this method of clothes-pinning them to a string across a short, empty expanse of wall. 

   I thought these plants in shiny aluminum buckets were uber-adorable.

The cute decorations in the kitchen really grab my attention - I feel like most people don't think to put pictures and/or knick-knacks there and instead view it merely based on functionality. The kitchen is a room too! Equality! haha. I also love the "&" between the windows - small piece, big statement.

did you make the wallflowers or buy those somewhere?


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.
