Emily's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor


Today's the day for Emily's lovely bedroom.  Emily Fields is the shy, sweet swimmer of the group.  Her room manages to find the perfect balance between vintage country and preppy chic.  At first glance, the room is light, sunny, and airy.  It's any teen girl's dream room.  


One of my favorite parts of Emily's room is her window nook.  What girl doesn't want a cozy window seat to curl up with a good book in or just watch the world pass by outside the window.  The window seat is kept fresh and young with a simple white cushion and cute white pillows embellished with colorful polka dots and flower designs. 


Above, you can see the light fixture that hangs over Emily's window seat.  Its modern silhouette contributes clean lines to the room, while its polka dot pattern keeps things from getting too serious.


I love love love love love Emily's ivory wrought iron bed in all its shabby chic glory.  Next to the bed, a simple wooden wardrobe gives off a down-home country feel.  Abstract art in pale green and baby blue hangs on the wall above her bed.


Emily's bedding is a girly mix of cottagey white quilts and updated gray and yellow floral prints.


Isn't the room soooo beautiful when the sunlight shines in?  You can really see the pale, buttery shade of yellow on her walls and the crisp white trim throughout the room.  A cute antique farmhouse chair, painted minty green, is situated by the window nook.  At far right, a white bookcase compliments the room's trim.


Emily's workspace is really cute.  Wicker basket drawers in an industrial metal shelf keep school supplies and clutter at bay. 


A traditional-style console table functions as a desk in Emily's room, outfitted with colorful picture frames, a metal desk light, and her wicker bins.  An antique chair, painted crisp white and upholstered with deep pink on its seat, is a lovely place to sit down and do homework.


Emily's room is simple, feminine, and fuss-free.  Perfect recipe for a dorm room or apartment right?   Well, let's proceed... ;)

Bed: Hit local antique and thrift stores for a wrought iron headboard and footboard that you can spraypaint white or ivory for a shabby chic look.  Layer the bed in cottage style bedding---white quilts, lace trim, eyelet details.  Add a few contemporary floral pillows like Emily's yellow and gray ones.  

Furniture: Want a country-chic amoire like Emily's?  A good place to start are unfinished furniture stores.  You can leave the wood unfinished or lightly stain it.  For a desk similar to Emily's, opt for a curvy console or sofa table.  Pair it with an antique chair painted white---or mint green like the chair Emily placed beside her window. 

Window Seat:  Just because you don't have a built-in window nook doesn't mean you can't get the same cozy feel.  A simple bench or long storage ottoman pushed up against the window will work just as well.  Add a soft white cushion and a few folksy throw pillows.  In my moodboard, I placed the bench and pillows at the end of the bed instead... but you could definitely move it under the window.

Accessories:  Focus on simple accessories that are fresh and timeless.  Since I loved Emily's wicker storage baskets so much, I dispersed a little more wicker throughout the room---with a wicker nightstand, under-the-bench bin, and basket on the desk. Pick a bedside lamp with a floral, vintage-inspired base and modern white shade.  To get the same look as the ceiling lamp above Emily's window, go for an extended floor lamp instead.  Cover the modern lampshade with some polka-dotted or floral fabric for a fun diy project.  As far as art goes, pick small pieces that depict flowers and nature.  Make the big abstract piece yourself by painting lines across a big piece of canvas.  Shades of blue and green will look most like Emily's, but you can paint whatever your heart desires! (It is abstract, after all!)  If your room doesn't come with carpet like Emily's does, use a neutral rug to add warmth under your feet.

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.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
