Green with Envy: Decor

I love green.  It's one of my favorite colors.  I don't decorate with it much, but I plan to have a beautiful green room someday.  In the meantime, in the spirit of St. Paddy's Day... I want to share some of my favorite green rooms.   I love the lustrous green and turquoise damask wallpaper in the room above.

Excuse me while I swoon over this magnificent canopy bed and the nearby Moroccan hanging lanterns.

This^ is one of my all time favorite photos ever.  The aged green walls.  The antique furniture.  The red faded into coral.  The ancient bones of the architecture.  Absolutely breathtaking.

Loving these green curtains against the charcoal hued walls.  Very elegant indeed.

And a green door opening up just enough to peek into a room with floral wallpaper and a chevron rug... Won't you come in?  Well, I don't mind if I do!

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.
