Paris, Je t'aime Dorm

Maya dressed up her SC dorm in a French theme.  Her nightstand features a vignette that includes a vintage mirror, lamp, pretty picture frames, tiny candles and perfumes, and porcelain tea cup atop pretty fabric. A college hangs on the wall--one she created to bring together the colors of the room: muted pinks, pale blues, and creamy whites.

Her bed is covered with billowy bedding and frilly pillows.
Cork in painted vintage frames make for lovely message boards.

Her workspace faces the window.

And she even carries the theme over into 
the bathroom with a toile shower curtain.

All photos in this post were posted by MayaV into HGTV's Rate My Space gallery. Head over to view more photos of her dorm.



I love the vintage mirror on the nightstand! Beautiful room.
Your bedroom is gorgeous and the vintage look makes it so serene! I think I would get a great nights sleep in that kind of room!The look is more inviting with a hint of vintage elegance.

The painted vintage frames really make the message boards stand out. This is a case of using simple components to make an outstanding item.

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.
