• Tell Your Friends

I work at HGTV and I’ve been impatiently waiting for the June/July issue of HGTV Magazine to hit my mailbox. Unfortunately, we have to wait just as long as you do to flip through those glossy pages. (BTW — It’s on newsstands today! Or better yet, you can subscribe right now and get future issues mailed right to your front door.) If you haven’t seen the cover yet, just wait. It looks and feels like summer with lots of vibrant colors. Let’s take a peek inside, shall we?

Family-Friendly Home Decorating Ideas

Meet Sue De Chiara — a mother of three, blogger and owner of online design store zhush.com. Now, take a look at her amazing and super-stylish kitchen and home office. I know what you’re thinking: “An all-white kitchen? How does that work with kids?” Sue has it all figured out, though. She chose a charming cottage-style beadboard that can easily be scrubbed when sticky fingers and smudges work their way onto the surface. And looking into the home office — did you ever think of wallpapering the ceiling? A creative design move like that can make a huge impact within a space. See more of Sue’s family-friendly decorating ideas.

Dramatic Porch Makeover

I’m a sucker for before-and-after makeovers, especially when I can see the entire process step-by-step. Watch as HGTV Magazine reveals the jaw-dropping transformation of interior designer Courtney Bishop’s Charleston, S.C. front porch. You can literally watch it transform from a blank canvas into a dreamy outdoor retreat. See the full step-by-step porch makeover.

Operation Fixer-Upper

While Meg Stein’s husband, Army sergeant Josh Sutton, was away in Afghanistan, she was determined to turn their newly-purchased fixer-upper into a home upon his arrival. Vintage scores and flea market finds helped her create the collected look she desired. And with a helping hand from friends, Meg was able to get the home almost entirely furnished and completed by the time Josh finished his deployment. Get a sneak-peek of this vintage-inspired home.

    I love looking over interior decorations online and even in magazines, like this one. They've been giving me a lo of ideas for my bed headboards which I have been longing to change since it really doesn't match the wall in my bedroom.

    Pretty good decor and setup, but some of those rooms seem a little too bright for me. That's nothing some nice roller shutters can't fix though.

    Does Meg Stein have a blog? If so, does anyone know the name of it? Nothing came up in my Google search. Her home transformation was stunning! It would be nice if the articles featured in HGTV Magazine would let us know if the person has their own blog and what the name of it is. I did love the magazine and will probably subscribe.

    I, too, have been trying to find if Meg Stein has a blog! She did an amazing job on her house and I would love to see her blog if she has one. HGTV peeps? Please let us know!
