Sneak Peek into My Apartment

Hey lovelies!

The days are getting closer to me FINALLY revealing my bedroom in my new apartment.  Until then, I decided to show you a moodboard I created that kinda captures the spirit of my decor.  The walls are painted Sherwin William's Anonymous, a warm grey/beige.  My furniture is all vintage French Provincial from the 1970s, cream in color with gold accents.
Since the walls are a dark neutral, I brought in a ton of color. Red, orange, mustard, and green are all evenly distributed... along with pops of turquoise. My bedding is a colorful quilt that brings all those colors together. And I have some great burlap pillows that I scored as freebies at my internship. Lots of eclectic accessories are strewn about---a vintage typewriter, small Roman bust, antique knick-knacks.  I also have a ton of books and magazines! (I am a magazine hoarder collector.)

I have a few finishing touches to make.  My wrought iron headboard (currently hot pink) is soon-to-be spraypainted red. I'm super excited to do so.  I still need to find the right curtains and possibly a rug.  And finish up some artwork I've been planning on doing.

It's a small bedroom and jampacked with furniture, but that's the way I like it!  I love my room to be full of pretty things and inspiration.  Since I thrive on creativity, I like to be able to lift up my head from whatever work I'm doing (school, blogging, creative writing) and look around with lots to see around me.  So be prepared: there's lots and lots to look at. On the blog, I might call it clutter. In my life, I refer to it as my creative chaos. ;)

Anyway... let me know what you think of my moodboard and I assure you that my real room tour will be posted in a couple/few weeks!  (Sometimes finding the perfect curtains can take a while.  And trust me, you don't want to see it right now... I just have random fabric draped over the curtain rods. Ugh.)

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.
