Gray + White + Yellow + Green Bathroom | My Next Place

So as I'm packing stuff up and preparing move, I can't help but get my daydream on about decorating my very own place.  I've procrastinating my packing with a little bit of Olioboarding to create inspiration boards for what I might do in certain rooms of my next apartment.  I decided to share the bathroom inspiration board first.

I'll be using a gray, white, and yellow fabric shower curtain from DENY Design that I received a long time ago but haven't been able to use.  I'll keep most of the accessories (rug, vanity items, waste basket, towels) in the gray and white color scheme, with a few pops of yellow to pick up on the shower curtain.  Then I'm going to add a bit of forest green here and there to match the vintage metal toolbox that I keep all of my makeup in. I will probably add a wicker laundry hamper for a touch of something natural and rustic.   I also plan on spray painting a small wooden table a green matching the toolbox.  I'll place it near the tub to hold a thing of bubble bath, a candle, and my teacup for long evening bubble baths.  Yay!  

It'll be such a lovely little retreat!  

What do you think?

I've got this color scheme going in my guest room right now and I love it! It's clean and crisp, but at the same time, there's something almost vintage about yellow and gray together. It can be girly and masculine at the same time. Target's got A LOT of stuff that fit in great with these colors.

Where did you make this collage? It is so cool.


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.
