Hello, and Happy Friday! This week seemed to do a number on us both, are you guys in the same boat? We’re pretty excited to curl up this weekend and do a whole lot of nothing, shamelessly. Walking to get coffee counts as cardio… right? Right.

cct // I just snagged a really awesome spindle bed on Craigslist with the intention of painting it, but the light finished wood is pretty nice – still debating what to do…

rkv // My coworker recently introduced me to the pretty wonderful pinterest board “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter,” and I love it tenderly.

cct // Speaking of beds and bedrooms, this great Apartment Therapy article 10 Steps to a Better Bedroom sparked the desire to check Craigslist

rkv // 10 creative grilled cheeses to make your heart skip a beat

cct // I visited my brother at college last weekend and came back with an awesome Taylor Swift remix. I forgot what it’s like to listen to remixes at house parties of people you don’t know, and it was great

rkv // Since we’re on the T-swift note, this 80s aerobics/”Shake It Off” video is sheer joy.

cct // Aerie is my favorite for bras and underwear and I’m happy to hear their anti-photoshopping campaign worked for them!

rkv // It’s sad that it really never occurred to me that Banksy could be a woman.

Room Refresh // Global Bedroom

Happy hump day everyone! It’s time for another Room Refresh – today I’ll be spinning off of the “global” living room theme from last month, with some bedrooms! This style is a wonderfully creative way to create a comfortable oasis in your bedroom – here’s some inspiration for you bohemian hippies out there: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 { images sources: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 } So if an artfully combined of mixture of patterns and jewel tones makes your heart go pitter patter, then here are some pieces specially picked for you: eclectic_bedroom1   Bedding: Two-Tone Pillowcase, Rectangle Pillowcase, Floral Pillowcase, Knit throw // Speckled Ceramics // Potted Succulents // Henna Letter // Ornate Rug // Burrow 

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:
