Welp, it’s almost February! That *usually* means chillier temps coming our way. We’ve been lucky enough to have a bit of a warm spell (for New England weather), but we know you’re coming for us, polar vortex. We’re going to be reaching for our favorite chunky sweaters before we know it!
And side note, we should have named this “Chunky White/Neutral Sweaters”, because apparently we only pin white/grey/tan sweaters, ha. Do you have a favorite chunky sweater you grab when the temps plummet? What are your favorite sweater brands? xo
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:
Pinterest has evoked a new love for us lately, and that’s light and bright kitchens. It’s amazing how much larger and cleaner a space can feel with neutral colored walls.
My current apartment’s kitchen isn’t terribly small, but up until recently, the wall color in there was definitely terrible. The sad dirty yellow had been on those walls for at least ten years, and now that I’ve lived here for two, I was beyond over it. After extensive research, I decided on a “greige“… a blend of a little grey and a little beige. It made an enormous difference, the space feels bigger, brighter, and now I actually want to spend time in there!
The best part about neutral kitchens are that they can come in a variety of colors. You can opt for a bright white to make the light bounce all around, a sophisticatedgrey, or a nice lattecolor to warm things up a bit. If you want to get a little more colorful and spunky with it, muted colors work really well also. Think mint orpale pink.
