Flower Beds

It's springtime and flowers are popping up everywhere---but floral patterns seem to be especially on trend this year.  Everywhere I look I see flowery dresses, blouses, shoes, purses, notebooks, dinnerware and, of course... bedding!  I love floral bedding.  So here's a round-up of some of my favorite options out there right now.

If I could have any of these, I would undoubtedly go with Anthropologie's Laelia Quilt because it's just so goshdarn lovely.  What about you?



I was just looking at the Laelia quilt last night! I love Anthropologie bedding- it is always so pretty. I really like the Pottery Barn duvet, too.
I have the Laelia quilt! It's beautiful, and I get compliments every time someone sees my dorm room. It does wrinkle, but I dry-cleaned it over winter break and it's good as new.

Love all these inspirations - I've never used florals in my decor but I'm beginning to reconsider! I like the sunbird sheet set! :)


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 .

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.
