Pure Home: It All Starts with Color


I love interactive interior design sites.  Quizzes that pinpoint style, tools that help pick out colors, galleries that suggest furniture... I just can't resist.  So naturally, when I heard about the new website Pure Home... I just had to give it a try.  Pure Home guides users through the decorating process by starting at square one: color.  Now that's a philosophy I can get on board with. 



First of all, the Pure Home site is a delight to use.  It's uber pretty.  Plus, it's speedy and simply.  No waiting on stuff to load or complicated steps.  It's truly as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.  You get to pick your style right away from a big list that includes descriptions.  I went with Eclectic, of course.  (But I can't wait to go back and explore the other styles!)



Then you get to pick up to 5 words to further describe your style.  So what did I want to go into my Eclectic?  Well, a little shabby chic.  A touch of whimsical.  Some unpredictability.  Lots of artsy.  And a bit of mixing up.  You also get to pick what kind of room.  For my first go, I chose a living room.



After going through the style selection process and a few questions about what kind of colors I gravitate towards, I was given an eclectic living room and color palette specially selected to suit my tastes.  Then comes the real fun part---playing with colors!  I "painted" the walls of the room a lush green that reminds me of summer's rolling hills.  I got bold and painted the ceiling a rich turquoise tone.  Crisp white trim brightens up the space.  And I threw in some brick red accents to warm things up.  What a gorgeous space, right?!


Then you can save your space so that you can access your style, color palette, atmosphere, and comfort level info again and again.  


You can find products that match the style of your room.  Use the products to create a moodboard or purchase them right away.  (Free shipping on all orders!)  I did a little product-browsing for the lovely mint-green office space I created, integrating a white cabinet, floral picture frames, candle, and wicker baskets.  (You can also order paint samples, which I think is pretty nifty.)  Plus, there's a little button you can add to your browser to clip images, furniture, accessories, etc. from the web to add to your collections.


I predict I'll be spending some serious time on Pure Home's blog Writing on the Wall.  

Pure Home is social, too.  So follow me and my boards.  :)

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.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
