LIGHT IT UP

When the sun goes down, the fun begins. Add chic ambiance with a cozy campfire and lots of lanterns and candlelight. For glampers on a budget, DIY paper bag lanterns are a cheap and easy way to dress up your campsite. String them from tent to tent for a festive look. Other fab lighting options include portable hurricane lanterns, recycled can lanterns or even plain white string lights.

My London trip was off to a phenomenal start when I spent the morning of my arrival learning the ins and outs of beekeeping thanks to an innovative program at my host hotel, the St. Ermin’s where bees have their very own hotel home on a terrace landscaped with ground cover and beautiful containers. There’s nothing quite like donning a full-body beekeeper’s suit and walking with my fellow classmates through the hallways of the hotel up to the bee terrace. Combined with major jet lag, it felt like we were preparing to enter a hot zone, in this case a hive-zone featuring some 300,000 Italian honeybees. Led by the supremely knowledgeable London bee-guru Camilla Goddard, who tends bees across the city, the beekeeping crash-course has a year-long waiting list, though HGTV was lucky enough to snag a last minute spot.

Last week, we asked if you preferred a private outdoor dining experience, like designer Jamie Durie’s lush and secluded spot, or an open and expansive dining room, like designer Sarah Richardson‘s cottage-style patio with a view. Sarah’s coastal outdoor space won with a 72 percent of the votes!

Sarah Richardson's Summer House Patio

Design by Sarah Richardson

HGTV fan kjg loves Sarah’s design because “it is light, airy and seems so comfortable. I think it does a great job of highlighting the view!” We couldn’t agree more, kjg! Follow our tips below to get the same inspired look on your outdoor space.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SURROUNDINGS

If you have a lush backyard or a great view, take a cue from Sarah. She surrounded her outdoor dining area with wide-open, floor-to-ceiling windows so guests can bask in the glorious view.

PROVIDE A LOUNGE AREA

After eating, it’s time to relax. Provide additional seating near the dining area, so guests can continue conversation in a more comfortable setting. A collection of outdoor pillows is a budget-friendly way to change the look seasonally.

KEEP THINGS LIGHT + AIRY

White furnishings instantly open up any space, so it’s a good option if you have a small outdoor space. This light color doesn’t last too long against the elements, so choose materials that are easy to clean.

Last week was gorgeous at HGTV Headquarters: warm, sunny and clear. This time of year, I want my decor to follow suit, with bright colors and nature-inspired patterns. Of course, I can’t totally redo my house every time the weather changes, but if I start with a neutral palette, I can swap out my accessories for a seasonal mini makeover. Taking cues from this airy, contemporary living room by Kapito Muller Interiors, here are some tips for infusing a neutral space with the freshness of spring.

If you read Beth’s trendspotting wrap-up or my earlier post on High Point Market’s hot color, then you’re well on your way to knowing what trends are headed to stores in the coming months.

Now, let’s talk about pattern, that often-overlooked design element that can take any room’s style from just so-so to oh-so-sophisticated. Like past markets, graphic, retro-inspired patterns were visible but no longer the new kids on the block. Instead, subtle, organic patterns that showcase each material’s natural beauty have the design world taking notice:

When Mother’s Day rolls around, some people join forces with siblings to brainstorm gift ideas – or perhaps for a bit of sibling rivalry over who can find the best gift. Others, like me, only have furry siblings, which has its advantages: I’m always the best gift-giver by default, and I never have to look too far for a present for Mom. If there’s one thing I can count on, it’s that my mom loves animals and, by extension, animal-related gifts. If your parent is as devoted to her pets as mine is, here are some fun Mother’s Day gifts.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas for the Pet Lover1. PersonalizationMall.com / 2. Etsy / 3. Society6 / 4. West Elm / 5. ModCloth / 6. ModCloth

1. Personalized Pet Pillow. Give your mom a personalized keepsake of her pet with this pillow. Choose between 12 cat graphics or 12 dog graphics, then add three messages that define her furry companion. Depending on your mom’s sense of humor, you can take a heartfelt approach (“loving friend”) or a cheeky one (“hairball queen.”)

2. Dog Breed Necklace. IvyByDesign‘s Etsy shop features sterling silver necklaces (with a personalized engraving option) in a wide range of dog and cat breeds. Whether Mom is fond of Dachshunds or Dobermans, you’ll likely find her four-legged friend of choice here.

3. Dogs Are Better Than People Tote. We all know it’s true – say it loud and proud with this tote. Hand sewn in America, this bag is machine-washable and double stitched at seams and stress points so it’s super sturdy.

4. Animal Icon Bath Trays. Bring a touch of charm to Mom’s bathroom countertops with these ceramic trays. Choose between three playful designs (rabbit, fox or pig) in a classic black-and-white color scheme.

5. Cat Tea-for-Two Set. If Mom’s a cat owner and a tea drinker, she’ll love this adorable tea-for-two set. It includes a pair of petite cups with polka dot trim, plus an onyx black teapot topped with a lid that looks like a playfully peeking feline. There’s also a removable strainer that makes brewing loose leaf tea a breeze.

6. Cat Person Circle Scarf. Let your stylish mom show off her affinity for felines with this cute infinity scarf. Black cat silhouettes dot the semi-sheer, mint-hued fabric.

The Kentucky Derby is finally here! The annual Run for the Roses is one of my favorite spring events — the fashion, the mint juleps, the beautiful horses with clever names and, oh yeah, the fastest two minutes in sports. Did I mention the fashion? On my bucket list is a trip to the Derby with tickets in the grandstands, a brand-new sundress and a GIGANTIC hat that the Queen herself would envy. Ok, let’s be honest, I really just want the hat. I love a big, beautiful hat and the fashion and design statement it can make. The hats that ladies famously wear to the Derby are so remarkable and chic, you could design an entire room around them!

Traditional Bedroom With Floral Fabrics

This hat may be simple when it comes to Kentucky Derby standards, but it’s a classic design that works for many events. A simple straw chapeau with a hot pink ribbon flower offers a tailored feminine look, much like this bedroom design by Ann Lowengart. The hot pink manages to be feminine without being overly precious or young looking, and the upholstered bed and crisp, white linens with navy trim and monogramming offers the same timeless style as the lovely hat.

Bold, Blue Kids' Lounge

I love this preppy navy fascinator. Blue is a great go-to color in both fashion and home decor, and the wood paneling and sofa piping detail add to the preppy look in the kids’ den at the HGTV Smart Home 2014. A little yellow can go a long way, and the forsythia blooms, artwork and throw pillows add a pop of fun to this space.

More Derby-Inspired Fashion

Me and my gals at HGTV Handmade just love a good challenge, so this week we all tackled a summer classic–cool and crisp white canvas sneakers. After a lot of thought (and, I confess, while watching Big Hero Six), I zeroed in on my idea. Could I take my sharpie tie-dye idea and use that as a base for a DIY galaxy print? Watch the video to see if I hit the mark.

These sneaks would be an excellent addition to festival fashion, but me? I think I’ll be rocking them on my deck all summer long. What do you guys think about galaxy prints? Too out there for you? Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Everyone knows that spring is the season to clean and get organized, but it’s also a perfect time to break out of a home decor rut. Beth, who manages all the gorgeous room photography that goes into HGTV’s Photo Library, recently put together an amazing gallery of 2015′s top trends in home decor. Designed by Ann Lowengart, this living room hits many of the year’s hottest looks, from shades of blue to warm metals to geometric patterns.

7 Ideas for a Trendy Yet Traditional Living Room

Did you know that April is National Stress Awareness Month? I certainly was unaware, but I have no problem celebrating the occasion with an extra-focused attempt at relaxation. While some people turn to a nice warm tub and bubbles or a sweat-inducing workout to ease anxiety and stress, my personal preference is to get my body in a position primed for reading or napping. While a bed or sofa is a perfectly fine solution for this, I’d much rather stretch out in a chaise.

White Tufted Chaise and Black Dresser

Design by J&J Design Group

You can’t go wrong with this classic design selected by J&J Design Group for this inviting living space. The chaise’s scroll shape, tufting and tulip feet make it a choice that will age elegantly in any design.

Cozy Gray Furniture in Modern White Living Room

Design by Sawhorse Design and Build

For me, the word chaise evokes a sense of traditional style, so I love to see a piece like this one chosen by Sawhorse Design and Build. The shape is unexpected and, with the bright fuchsia pillows, adds a touch of whimsy and softness to this otherwise geometric, modern lounge space.

Pool With Patio, Hot Tub and Submerged Lounge Chairs

Design by Addison Bruley

Here’s a nice two-fer for you by Addison Bruley. You’ve got a soft, cabana-style loungers at the edge of the pool deck for naptime and partially submerged chaises for when you want to cool off. Leave your stress behind, but don’t forget the sunscreen!

Awkward Hallway Space Transformed Into Cozy Reading Nook

Design by Nina Green

There’s something instantly cozy and restful about a leather lounger and rustic decor. The deep tones of the chaise and cowhide rug and flooring in this room designed by Nina Green are warm and welcoming and have me ready for relaxation!

Green Transitional Bedroom With Plush Chaise

Design by Susan Manrao

My bedroom tends to be the most comfortable spot for relaxation in the house, but I find that if I lay on the bed I have the urge to fall into a deep sleep. I like how Susan Manrao included a chaise in this bedroom for lighter naps and reading time — it’s a way to relax without confusing the internal body clock.

Welcome to Spring Essentials, a Design Happens mini-series where we’ll highlight our favorite products to help you get your home ready for spring. The fifth installment: Spring-inspired bedding that will make your bedroom look bright and refreshed all season — and all summer! — long.

I’m one of those people with cold-weather bedding and warm-weather bedding. During the winter, there’s nothing better than wrapping up in my cozy flannel sheets. But from April to September, I like to keep it light and breezy in the bedding department. Right now, my bed is dressed in a classic navy prep strip duvet, mint polka-dot sheets, and mint and lime throw pillows. My bedding palette is cool and refreshing like the season.

Have you swapped out your winter bedding yet? Take a look at our seasonal bedroom picks in especially lively hues.

Spring Bedding 20151. Pottery Barn 2. Serena & Lily 3. Target 4. Macy’s 5. H&M 6. Serena & Lily

1. Spring-y Duvet Cover. Imagine walking into your bedroom and seeing an array of blooming florals and rich leafy foliage every single day. That’s the power of this gorgeous organic duvet cover. ($79-$103)

2. Embroidered Sheets. The folks at Serena & Lily said it best: “Our not-so-basic white sheets make a great foundation for layering color and pattern throughout the room — think of them as classics with a twist.” The colorful motif (available in eight bright hues) is both sophisticated and playful. ($148-$268)

3. Soft Throw. IMO, the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collab is one of the most exciting things to happen this season. Go ahead and bookmark this pink tasseled throw from the lookbook while we anxiously await the April 19th debut. (It’s technically called an “outdoor blanket” but I think it would look so adorable casually draped over the foot of a bed.) ($30)

4. Patterned Shams. Mixing patterns is the name of the game when it comes to putting together a beautifully-styled bed. This large-scale contemporary pattern is a nice match for the botanical duvet cover, while the navy and white pull out the bedding’s navy background. ($89.97 for the bed set)

5. & 6. Bold Throw Pillows. Here comes the fun part — throw pillows! This is where you can play with texture, pattern and color by pulling in accent colors from the duvet in fun ways. I say, you can never have too many throw pillows. Choose solids, neutrals and unexpected colors, like this green quilted pillow and this white canvas beauty with suede corner caps. ($12.95; $38.99)

Now tell us — how are you giving your bedroom a taste of spring? Swapping out your winter bedding? Tossing in some new throw pillows? Let us know!

Outdoor spaces: We love them during the spring and summer, but it’s easy to overlook them the rest of the year. If your patio or backyard looks like an afterthought or feels disjointed from the rest of your home, never fear. By incorporating stylish furniture and cozy accents, you can create an outdoor space that’s just as appealing as your home’s interior. We collected some tips from designer Emily Henderson, who transformed this formerly plain patio into a cozy outdoor room with a collected, bohemian vibe. Get the look with these seven ideas and products:

7 Tips for a Cozy Outdoor Living Room

As a kid I LOVED to hunt for hidden plastic Easter eggs — I didn’t even care if there was chocolate inside or not! For me the thrill of the searching and finding was enough. Since no one is volunteering to put on a grown-up Easter egg hunt for me, I’m instead channeling my laser focus for colorful, pastel things into finding Easter egg-colored home decor.

Since the weather is rapidly warming, it’s a great time to look at spring-fresh bedroom decorating ideas. It’s time to swap out heavy comforters for light coverlets, so why not change dark, moody colors out for the kind you’d find in an Easter basket? Pastels get a little bit of an unfair rap for being little-girlish, but I think when used right they’re appropriate for any age.

Neutral Transitional Bedroom With Canopy Bed

Design by Musso Design Group

This bedroom by Musso Design Group does it just right: A neutral backdrop with soft white bedding and beige curtains can work for any season. The bright pops of orange and turquoise in the blanket and throw pillows are perfect for spring and summer but can be swapped out for items with heavier fabric and darker colors to match fall and winter.

Fuchsia and Brown Moroccan Inspired Bedroom

Design by Jennifer Dyer

Ok, I admit I’m not much of a pink gal, but I LOVE this bedroom. There’s something so alluring about the rich, fuchsia-colored chairs, throw pillows and wallpaper. The deep gray tone of the carpet and curtains and the hardwood-covered ceiling help tone down the overall effect of the more colorful accents, giving this room designed by Jennifer Dyer a luxury hotel-like feel.

Yellow Cottage Bedroom With White Iron Bed

Design by Denise Fogarty

You just can’t look at this room without feeling instantly warmer and happier. This classic cottage bedroom is the definition of inviting with its white iron bed and lemony yellow walls. This look would lend itself well to a welcoming guest bedroom.

Bedroom With Hummingbird-Print Wallpaper and Luxury Touches

Design by Preston Lee

Designer Preston Lee knows how to make formal design fun. Just take a look at this minty bedroom bedecked in Osborne and Little Grove Garden Wallpaper, which provides a perfect spring setting for the high-end furnishings and accessories, such as the shell-covered chandelier, sunburst mirror and canopy bed.

Moody, Masculine Master Bedroom

Design by Caitlin & Caitlin

I’ve saved my favorite for last. Design team Caitlin & Caitlin used a moody shade of lavender that invokes both feminine and masculine appeal. The gray duvet plays to the more serious side of the otherwise playful color, while the Southwestern style blanket warms things up.

Finally, spring is officially here, and we kicked it off with a gorgeous weekend at the HGTV Headquarters. If there’s one downside to the change in seasons, it’s that the sudden sunny weather is shedding light on my outdoor spaces that need a little (okay, a lot) of TLC. One of the first projects I want to tackle is giving my bare front porch a curb appeal boost — and it’s actually not a terribly daunting task. All you need is a few colorful accessories to spruce up a plain porch, and we’ve rounded up some tips and products to get you started:

Copy the Look of This Colorful Front Porch

1. Valspar / 2. Target / 3. The Home Depot / 4. Overstock / 5. Target / 6. Lowe’s

1. Fresh Paint for the Front Door. One of the easiest ways to amp up your home’s curb appeal is make your front door a focal point with a vibrant coat of paint. Red is a classic choice that pairs well with most neutrals, but other can’t-miss color combos include blue and yellow, white and navy, and brown and green.

2. Punchy Outdoor Pillow. Pulling from your home’s exterior palette, add eye-catching color and pattern around your porch with inexpensive accessories. We picked this weather-resistant toss pillow for its stylish geometric motif.

3. Chic House Numbers. Seems like a small detail, right? You’d be surprised by the impact new house numbers can have on your home’s exterior. You’ll find a wide range of traditional and modern options on the market, so choose accordingly based on your home’s architectural style. We like these durable brass numbers for their sophisticated aged bronze finish.

4. Outdoor Bench. Even on a narrow front porch, you can usually squeeze in a slim bench or small chair — a minor update that will make your space feel so much more inviting and livable. Just 15 inches wide, this modern bench is easy to assemble and comes in 11 colors to complement any decor.

5. Floral Patterned Doormat. Say “welcome home” by replacing a shabby doormat with a fresh, fun option, like this lively floral design that complements the colors in our throw pillow.

6. Ceramic Outdoor Pot. Finally, flank the front door with a potted plant or two for an extra splash of color. We chose this ceramic planter for its interesting texture and subtle red hue.
