World Cup 2014!

In honor of the first World Cup game today, we have some awesome vintage pics! Hard to believe images and graphics were once this marvelous without the help of instagram, afterlight, vsco, photoshop, illustrator… and endless others. It was an art of coordinating the right moment, great light, perfectly grainy film, and some fierce fonts and color choices. Enjoy!

Room Refresh // Eclectic Bedroom

Hey all! In case you weren’t around last month or have forgotten, we started a new series at G&M called Room Refresh, where we took 4 themes (eclectic, minimal, global and masculine) as a basis to refresh your living rooms. Since we enjoyed it so much, we’ve decided to keep the series thriving and apply these themes in your bedrooms!

Behold, the eclectic bedroom! In case you don’t remember the basics to an eclectic room, it pretty much involves bright pops of color & prints, counteracted by neutral backdrops. Christa and I were big fans of watching What Not To Wear back in the day (may it rest in peace), and as Stacey and Clinton once said “it doesn’t have to match, it just has to go!” Here’s some inspiration to get you started:

If you love the eclectic look like we do and are looking to add a little spice to your boudoir, here are some pieces to rev your engines:

Hammerpress Shop

Although we’re partial to handmade cards, we get super excited for handmade-by-someone-else cards as well. When we saw the fun prints, post cards and posters over at Hammerpress we knew we had found a winner. (We also love their Kansas City, MO location – we both have MO/KS/midwest family!) Take a look at these beautifully designed and printed pieces, we want them all!
