November Moodboard

gm_nov_moodboard_3


What a perfect fall day – crisp and sunny! We’re feeling inspired by the calm neutrals of fall, which are very much appreciated on such a nerve wrecking week! Hopefully everyone had a great weekend and is ready to vote tomorrow! I’ll be voting after work and then joining my mom and grandparents for pizza to make us all feel better 🙂 and then will be heading to Real Art Ways in Hartford for an election night event, where they open up their theater to live coverage – with much needed wine!

Fall Style ’14 // Gap

We’re not quite ready for fall, but alas, we have succumbed to the fashion world. Gap is one of the many brands who is on point this upcoming season — with slouchy fits, warm neutrals, and lots of texture. It’s hard to say so-long to summer, but the prospect of trendy layers makes the transition a little smoother.

Room Refresh // Minimal Living Room

We’re back with our second Room Refresh, with our focus still on living rooms! Today we’re covering minimalism, and in the sense of home decorating it can mean a lot of different things. The style of minimalism can see a generous range, from Scandinavian minimalism (seen in this post), mod{ern} minimalism, to literally just the bare essentials. But one thing is certain, they all like white and concrete! And while we do love our trinkets, there is something so refreshing about being unattached and removing the unnecessary. Check out some stripped down living rooms that posses a lovely openness about them…

First things first, in order to achieve this look you need a lot of wood (preferably unfinished pine or teak), a tinge of industrial, and a bit of greenery. Scandinavian minimalism is very much focused on the integrity of the products used and the neutralism between everything. But don’t let go of all color, texture or pattern! And most importantly, minimalism isn’t about getting rid of EVERYTHING just to do it, but paring down your things to your most essential & treasured, and showing those off. Marry your beloved items in your sleek, airy room and you’ll be good to go!
