A Sleek, Masculine Take on Vintage

Here's a little inspiration for those of you are into something a bit more stark, masculine or MidCenturn Modern than the (colorful, florally, eclectic) rooms I usually feature.  There's just something about the quiet handsomeness of this space that appeals to me. 

I love lamp.  I really do.  Especially this one.  I love the contrast of the rough vintage crate and the sleek modern table.

There's a mannequin in the corner!

Here's a shot of the living room. 

Old cameras and photography books are displayed tastefully.

And the hallway is just lovely.

Fetch is SO happening. And if not, we'll make it happen. :)

This looks like a home my boyfriend would love. He's all for masculine simplicity, and I'm trying like crazy to incorporate that into our apartment. I'll definitely take some cues from this post! Thanks.

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.
