Liberty's Vintage Baltimore Abode

I love the shelving unit over the bed as a headboard. 
Vertical storage is always a space saver! And what a great
place to keep magazines and books close at hand! 

Welcome to Liberty's abode!  Liberty, the blogger behind Liminality, goes to the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.  She sent over these photos of her new apartment.  And, seeing that she's a girl that takes after my own vintage- and thrifting-loving heart, how could I not feature her cozy space?  Enjoy! 
A vintage school desk makes for a darling bedside
table, plus has ample space underneath for
storage boxes to keep clutter at bay.  

Ooooh, I want some vintage chandeliers now!

The fireplace mantle is decorated with artsy
postcards, old photos, and vintage soda bottles.

An old tin ceiling tile doubles as a magnet board.

I'm in lust with the color she painted this dresser.

 The workspace is comprised of a brightly painted
table, an old school chair, and another chandelier. 
Vintage suitcases stacked under the table allow for
additional, easy-to-tuck-away storage.

Another view of the bed and workspace.
Here's some of Liberty's words on her space,
"The only new things in the room were my bed, curtains, and a portable closet thing from Walmart.
Everything else is thrifted including my desk, wardrobe, and headboard/magazine rack (all of which were repainted), and my bench and the old school desk that serves as my nightstand.  I especially love the vintage chandeliers, the old tin ceiling tile doubling as magnet board, the vintage post cards in the 'fireplace', and all the vintage suitcases used for storage. I am so happy to be living here!"

Check out Liberty's blog Liminality for pictures of her kitchen and living room spaces!

Thank you, Liberty!

May I know where you got your gray cabinet? Did you buy it gray or you painted it?

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.
