Cozy Fall Bedroom

With the temperature dropping, we’re looking to cozy up our bedrooms! When Crane & Canopy asked us how we how we prep our bedrooms for fall, we wanted to share our tips and tricks!

01. Change up your bedding.
Flannel, fleece, velvet – add all of the texture to our bed.

02. And then add blankets!
Plaid, chunky knit, wool, faux fur – cozy up with your boo and watch a movie in bed!

03. Light your most comforting candle.
Whether it’s sweet like oatmeal cookie or vanilla, or musky like campfire and pine, the comforting smell and beautiful glow of your favorite candle will make you want to spend all of your free time in your bedroom.

04. Cozy up your reading nook.
Apply everything we just said to your comfy little reading corner 🙂

05. Bring fall textures/accessories into your bedroom.
Wood trays for accessories (or morning coffee!), pine cones, green garlands – go as simple or as complex as you’d like! Maybe even add an adorable mini pumpkin to your dresser.

Fall is in full force now that it’s somehow the middle of October! The temps have finally lowered a bit and the sweaters are coming out. Before winter hits, we’re hoping to have the best fall ever…

Christa’s fall bucket list:
Hit up as many farmers markets as possible
Make donuts with my new donut pan (post coming soon!)
Figure out a storage system for storing my boots so they look this good next fall!
+ Actually watch Rosemary’s Baby this year
+ Travel to Boston more to visit Reg!
+ Hike more while the leaves are this gorgeous
+ Walk, instead of drive, to as many local things as possible
Finish Moby Dick by Thanksgiving

Reg’s fall bucket list:
Sunset wine on the Charles River with blankets
Hike Monad again!
Biking around the city
Make mulled spiked cider and wine
Walk the Arnold Arboretum
Teach a yoga class for my friends in the park
Get up early to take photos before the city wakes up
Bake all of the apple everything

What’s on your fall bucket list?


 

Love Want Need // Bomber Jackets & Headphones

unspecified


With those chilly autumn days on the horizon, we’ve been ogling the fall layers and colors we’re anticipating wearing once the crazy New England humidity ends. We love the street-style look of a bomber jacket with some chunky headphones — the combo just makes us want to strut down the sidewalk looking fly as a mofo, listening to the BeeGees and pretending that we’re cooler than we actually are 🙂

I think the Fall weather is finally on it’s way! It’s been nice to finish out the summer with some warm weather, but this humidity has got.to.go. We’re lookin’ to bake, snuggle, and wear pants comfortably again! #welovejeans. Here’s to a beautiful, crisp {but not too cold}, inspiring & delicious Fall everyone!

So I don’t know how things are around your neck of the woods, but Bean Town is pouring, and it ain’t stopping any time soon. Sadly it seems like this may put a hiccup in our plans to go on a girl’s weekend hike in NH, so we’re currently trying to schedule other activities. Hopefully we can find some goodies! In the mean time, while I’m cooped up in my office, I’ve crafted a mellow rainy day playlist to pass the hours.

Guys, this week! It felt long, but also extremely quick at the same time – how does that even happen?! No complains anymore, because it’s Friday (yay!). We’re chillin, chillin this weekend and couldn’t be happier. The following weekend, us G&M ladies plus Reg’s roomies are heading up to New Hampshire for a little hiking, leaf peeping and r&r, aka perfection. Now that it’s officially fall we’re happy – crisp air, leggings, apple pie, you know, fall things. Have a great weekend! xo
