Handsome Apartment

It's not uncommon to walk into a college guy's apartment and be like, "Whoa!"  But it's usually because there's trash everywhere and a questionable stench in the air. But this guy's space (thanks to his mother's lovely decorating skills) is a definite winner.

The space is contemporary and masculine, incorporating neutrals, black, and metallic finishes. I'm totally envious of the glass apothecary dome on the dresser (left).  And I love the tins on the shelve over the closet--smart space-saving storage solution!

The workspace feels grown up and urban. The desk is clutter-free. The shelving was put together using mostly kitchen items from Ikea. A metallic picture frame and message board shine when the sleek lighting is turned on.

Since the bed didn't have a headboard, they created one using wall tiles. The bamboo lamp that I'm digging is from West Elm and the bedding from Lacoste.

The modern, masculine look is
continued into the bathroom. 

And there's even a beta fish!

Seriously--this guy's apartment rivals most girls' apartments I've seen.

I like what you did to your space especially your choice of furniture. It provided you with enough space to move around.

I like the furniture that you have in your apartment. I just think it is a little bit dark. Perhaps more lighting will make it look more spacious and pretty.

This is a really nice place to live. I've been dreaming of getting one someday. I heard that Margaret River Apartments offer the best services and accommodation. I should probably consider renting an apartment there.

I really enjoy looking at the photos. Motel is a good business. I really look into doing the same interior design of yours. I always go to Motel Management to know more about managing.


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.
