Lovely, Little, Ladylike

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite teeny-tiny apartments from Apartment Therapy's "Small Cool" 2010 contest.  Today I have one more to share!  It's a tad bigger (coming in at 410 square feet).  I just adore how feminine it is.  I mean---that bedroom! Gorgeous! The soft gray walls, breezy curtains, pretty secretary in the corner, and luxurious bedding... lovely.  And I love that color of pink on the walls in the next room...

 It's the prettiest pink I've ever seen.  Paired with the white trim
and the contemporary black dining table, it's so appealing.
And I'm really envying that mannequin in the corner. I want.

 Isn't this a charming kitchen?

 And a built-in vanity in the bathroom right in
front of the window for perfect natural light!

Here's a floorplan of Julie's space so you can get a better feel of how it's all laid out.  All the photos in this post are from Apartment Therapy.

Would you decorate with this color scheme of hot pink, white, soft gray, and black?  I would!

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.
