Design Your Sign with Modani: Decorating Like an Aquarius


Ever wonder how your zodiac sign influences your design style? Our lovely friends over at Modani have created a graphic detailing just that. I love anything that combines personality traits and decorating preferences, so it was fun to determine my design taste in a celestial way.

Inventive. Artful. Mixes neutrals with pops of color. Finds new uses for common (or uncommon) items. Sounds like the stars have my style pinpointed perfectly. 

Modani inspired me to create a mood board for my living room based on my zodiac-inspired style and incorporating my favorite modern furniture. In this fantasy living room, I'd set the stage with an eye-catching fretwork rug and brick wallpaper as a backdrop. I'd mix antique-inspired styles with modern lines – like pairing a sleek sofa with that gorgeous black fainting couch. I love the look of stacking vintage suitcases as a side table and you know deer are near and dear to my decorating heart. I'd also bring in some glitzy accents in the form of glittery chandeliers, Venetian mirrors, and shining candle holders – as well as some colorful pillows. 

Check out Modani's zodiac graphic below. Does it describe your decorating style?

Here are my favorite items from Modani:

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.
