Updates in Alison's Chic & Feminine Apartment


Today, we're revisiting an apartment that I've blogged about and swooned over a couple times before (...Pretty Patterns, Pretty Pastels here and Alisons Oh-So-Pretty Apartment here.)  I'm as smitten as ever with Alison's use of dreamy whites, pretty pastels, and playful touches of color.  So I was psyched to see she's been busy with some more decorating updates in 2013.


Alison carefully curates all the pretty objects that surround her, keeping furniture clutter-free and lovely items corralled on trays.  Isn't the light blue lamp base perfect with that rosette-spotted white shade?   




Her bed deserves an award.  It's one of the loveliest I've ever seen.  And I love the billowy, ruffly bedding.


A chic, white and gold chevron tray contains Alison's phone, a sparkly tea light candle holder, and a spray painted white mason jar displaying fresh flowers.  The nearby aquamarine glass lamp base is lovely.


Alison's living room is just as lovely as her bedroom, but integrates a few more colors and shades of gray.  I'm head-over-heels for her sleek, modern gray couch and the pretty pillows upon it.  




I'm also a big fan of her simple white desk placed in front of a big, bright window.  What a perfect place to spend hours writing, blogging, and pinning!

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.
