Olioboard: Exposed Brick Bedroom

You know me and exposed brick... it's a decor love affair.  The board above depicts what is pretty much my dream bedroom.  Exposed brick walls all the way around.  Exposed wooden beams on the ceiling.  A perfectly worn wood floor.  I love four-poster beds and this white one feels modern and vintage-y at the same time.  A vibrant blue pillow and lovely floral one add color and pattern.  Nearby, a round side table holds a bold orange lamp.  A colorful vintage poster hangs overhead.  At the foot of the bed is a velvet bench in a crisp green color as well as a couple off-white vintage suitcases stacked on top of each other.  The focal point of the room is a big oriental rug in a gorgeous blue and boasting an intricate floral print.  A dark, modern dresser is kept clutter-free, accessorized with only a cluster of candles and a vase of blue flowers.  Books are stacked vertically along one of the wooden columns.  A bright orange-red chair and brass floor lamp make for a cozy reading spot.  In the background is a French Provincial armoire and antique mirror.  Simple white sheers cover the windows and a dainty chandelier illuminates everything from above.

The room is feminine and romantic without the frills.  With the eclectic mix of furniture and decor, it is fun, fresh, and unexpected.  I could definitely see myself living here. ;)

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.
