9x9 Living Room at the University of Arkansas

Welcome to a small but sassy 9x9 foot living room space in the Maple Dorm at the University of Arkansas.

I see too many dorm rooms decked out floor to ceiling in zebra print, but this single zebra rug adds just enough sass while keeping the space classy. The room keeps to a black and white plus red theme.

This is her favorite chair--I'm in love, too! It's shiny, gray, and velvet!

Definitely a chic space for a dorm!

This is adorable :) My bedroom is super small (8 by 10) and I am doing my best to make it feel stylish and complete. Love the use of color as an accent and the organization!
Beautiful living room! I love how simple it is. Clutter always makes rooms look so much smaller. And I am in love with that velvet chair. I NEED a velvet chair!!


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.
