We challenged you to spot the price difference between two gorgeous green campaign dressers. Did you guess correctly? You won our vote for “Best Eye for Design” if you answered Left: low, Right: high. One lucky winner will be chosen and notified by email.

As usual, Sabrina Soto’s High/Low List is packed with great items at every price range, but these two really grabbed our attention. The unmistakable campaign-style hardware on the MDF and poplar chest on the left makes it a cost-conscious choice. And eight layers of lacquer means the higher-priced piece at right has some serious shine.

It may feel like the middle of summer outside, but the HGTV Magazine editors are living like it’s already fall. Putting the October issue together meant filling the office with fluffy pillows, warm colors, and comfy chairs. See every cozy idea from the new issue when October hits stands this Tuesday, September 9. And you lucky subscribers? Just head to the mailbox.

As usual, we’re giving online readers an early look inside the pages. Take a look at what’s to come.

From the looks of this home, you’d never guess it was once the victim of a disastrous fire. The homeowners stuck together and rebuilt their family’s home room by room. Take a look inside the gorgeous new space.

Last year we asked a few HGTV stars to leave their mark on no-carve pumpkins, but this time we’re downsizing. It’s all about the mini pumpkin for Halloween 2014! We’re sharing six fun ideas inside the issue, plus 2 bonus designs and helpful templates exclusively for online readers at hgtv.com/mini-pumpkins.

Campaign furniture was originally used for — you guessed it — campaigns. Military units appreciated it for its portability, as chairs and chests were made to be easily broken down and reassembled — perfect for a troop on the move. These days, the stylish brass corners and unique drawer pulls make campaign dressers sophisticated focal points of any room.

There may be history behind the style, but you don’t have to pay antique-level prices to sport this trend in your home. In HGTV Magazine’s newest High/Low Challenge, we ask if you can name the price difference between these two chests. One winner will receive a prize package that includes a copy of the October issue, an HGTV Magazine iPhone 5 case, and an HGTV Magazine ice cream scoop. All you have to do is leave your answer in the comments below (i.e. Right: high, Left: low or vice versa). You must answer correctly for a chance to win. Come back tomorrow at 2 p.m. to see if you were right!

Take a seat and see if you were right. We asked you to look at two similar stools to see if you could correctly tell which one was priced higher than the other. If you answered Left: high, Right: low, then you are correct and would clearly make a good shopping buddy. One lucky winner of the HGTV Magazine prize package will be notified by email.

These stools caught the eye of both our market director and Sabrina Soto to make it on September’s The High/Low List. The maple barstool on the left is upholstered in easy-to-clean indoor-outdoor fabric, so you never have to worry about stains. The right polyester pick has such a friendly price tag, you might as well buy a whole set. See what else made the cut by subscribing or picking up a copy when it hits stands Tuesday.

It’s a stool standoff for September’s sweepstakes! Excuse the alliteration, as I introduce the latest High/Low Challenge from the new issue of HGTV Magazine. September hits newsstands August 5th, but this will give you a taste of what’s to come.

These tufted stools may look similar, but the price tags are where they differ. Which is priced lower than the other? Enter for a chance to win a prize package that includes a copy of the September issue, an HGTV Magazine iPhone 5 case, and an HGTV Magazine umbrella. All you have to do is leave your best guess in the comments below (i.e. Right: low, Left: high or vice versa). You must answer correctly to win. The answer will be revealed on the blog tomorrow.

We always work together here at HGTV Magazine, but with the new season of Brother Vs. Brother in full swing, we’ve found ourselves choosing sides.

Suddenly the office is divided between Team Jonathan and Team Drew supporters, so our lifestyle editor created temporary tattoos that show our allegiance. When a picture of them landed on Twitter, we received tons of replies asking where to get these tats and how to make them.

Well here you go! All you need is a laser or ink-jet printer and a temporary tattoo kit, which includes decal and adhesive paper. Follow the steps below, then tweet a pic of your tattoos to @HGTVMag using either #TeamDrew or #TeamJonathan to get in on the fun with us!

Brother Vs Brother tattoos

  1. First step: Choose a side. Who do you think will win this season of Brother vs. Brother? [Catch up on any episodes you may have missed here.]
  2. Click here to download the PDF of Team Drew and Team Jonathan tattoos, then save to your desktop. [Don’t worry that the pictures look backward. They will be flipped over before you apply the tattoos, so Jonathan and Drew will appear correctly on your skin.]
  3. Peel off the disposable front layer of the decal paper, [try Water Slide Temporary Tattoo Paper, decalpaper.com] and insert into printer. Print the image on the glossy side. Let dry for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove the disposable backing of the clear adhesive sheet and place directly on top of the printed decal paper. Be sure to remove air bubbles with an old credit card, straight edge or wallpaper smoother.
  5. Cut around the image. Remove the adhesive layer and place tattoo ink-side down on clean, dry skin, pressing firmly.
  6. Dab a damp cloth or paper towel to the tattoo until the entire tattoo shows through the paper. Remove paper to reveal the temporary tattoo.

A video tutorial, available on decalpaper.com, shares tips and tricks and shows you the printing and application process from start to finish.

Tune in Sundays at 9/8c to cheer on your team, and head over to the Brother Vs. Brother home base for web-exclusive videos, competition recaps, and behind-the-scenes looks.

A claw-foot tub is timeless, and you can find them at various price points, but were you clever enough to know which bathroom costs a little more?

You’re correct if you guessed: Left: high, Right: low. The lucky winner of this month’s HGTV Magazine prize package will be notified by email.

Were you correct?

On the left, relax in luxury with a fabric shower curtain, relaxing spa-worthy showerhead, classic tub, and organic cotton rug. You’ll be singing in the shower after you’ve saved a bundle with the look on the right. Costs drop with a vinyl shower curtain, rainwater showerhead, cast-iron tub, and soft blue rug. We think a nice long bubble bath is in order.

Find info on these products and more in Sabrina Soto’s latest round-up of dynamic duos on The High/Low List.
