Will someone bring me my smelling salts, please?!

I'm having a decorgasm!  Check out that couch in all its orange glory!  And the turquoise side table and the pink flowers---and the rug that ties it all together.  Not to mention the dainty gold frames on the wall.  But seriously... that couch.  I'm having trouble distinguishing need from want.

I want a fainting couch.  I like the romantic idea of sighing, swooning and sinking into the plush velvet of an elegant chaise.  Hot pink would be a huge plus. 

This bed would make me a very happy girl.

Cute settee. 

Ohhh, and what a lovely canopy bed.

Last but not least... I intend on having a huge mirror like this one in my bedroom someday.

All of these photos are from La Cabeza de Maria Antonieta showroom.  That's Spanish for "the head of Marie Antoinette."  So Marie Antoinette is involve... know wonder I like it. ;)  The all-Espanol blog is here if you want to check it out, chicas.

I can't decide which I like more - the orange couch or the hot pink one. Decisions, decisions.

That pink fainting couch is the most fantastic thing I've seen all week!

To have color combinations like that first picture inside my own apartment would be the most amazing thing in the world. I don't think I appreciated orange until I saw that couch. Good grief this place is gorgeous! :)


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.
