What do weight watchers, smokers, compulsive shoppers and disciplinarians have in common? They could all make great use of the kitchen safe. Just put an item in the safe, and set the timer. No one (not even you!) can get in until the time reaches zero. You can even showcase gifts inside to heighten anticipation for the receiver. What a great idea!

I love a good hanging plant, but the ceiling in my older home is pretty low, so there’s not much room to hang anything. These pretty wall planters would be the perfect solution to my low-ceiling problem. They’re a convenient space saver, plus their design is so nice and simple. They’re handmade of porcelain and leather, and their natural look allows the plants to really shine.

What do you think? Would you hang a few in your home (or maybe cover an entire wall)?

I’ve been looking for a way to use fewer paper towels at home. I’ll rip off the smallest amount possible to clean up a spill, or I’ll use one towel until it can’t take any more. I started doing this for several reasons, one being the exorbitant amount of money it costs to continuously supply a home with paper products. It really adds up! That’s why I love these reusable cloth “paper” towels. Not only is it a more environmentally-friendly solution, it would also save a ton of money in the long run. All you have to do is wash your towels and snap them back together for a new, clean roll of towels. Plus, there are all kinds of cute prints to choose from. Could it get any better?

If you’ve been following D-Happ for a while now, then you know that each quarter a group of uber-talented design students live and breathe the HGTV brand as a part of our Home Studio co-op program. While the up-and-coming designers are here, they work closely with experts like Vern Yip to create stunning and interactive design vignettes for employees and visitors right here at HGTV Headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn. This summer, returning intern Justin DiPiero from Savannah College of Art and Design, worked with SCAD graduate student Alexandra Kern and University of Cincinnati student Catherine Blubaugh on a vignette covering a spectrum of design trends (seven to be exact). Plus, each one features their iconic piece: the Wishbone Chair. Take a look, and see if you think their trend picks are on target.

HGTV Home Studio interns Catherine Blubaugh, Justin DiPiero and Alexandra Kern

Kayla Kitts for Design Happens: In the past, the Home Studio displays have focused on one design trend. What inspired you to choose seven trends to showcase this time?

Justin DiPiero: Once we had decided to showcase the iconic Wishbone Chair designed by Hans Wegner, we were inspired by how versatile the chair really is. It can work in so many spaces and so many situations. That’s why we decided to create different vignettes, each with their own trend, to speak to the versatility of the chair.

Catherine Blubaugh: We felt that there were so many relevant trends that interested us that it was hard to just narrow it down into one. It also helped strengthen the idea that the Wishbone Chair is very versatile.

Alexandra Kern: As Justin and Catherine said, the Wishbone Chair truly was the inspiring factor that led us to showcase seven completely different designs trends. We decided what better way to showcase this than presenting the Wishbone Chair in seven different colors and finishes in seven different design trends. Plus, there are currently so many great design trends — how could we choose just one?

KK: Is there one trend in particular that you feel is especially hot right now or will peak as we move into fall?

CB: I would have to say that I’ve been seeing more animal-inspired spaces at the moment. The warmness and textural quality of that trend is becoming more popular as the autumn season approaches. Also, I’m seeing the patterns and colors of the future botanical display showing up more and more.

AK: As I’ve been watching TV, flipping through magazines and roaming the internet, I keep seeing our design trends pop up everywhere! It’s hard to say exactly what’s hot right now, but I think geometrics are definitely making their way to the forefront of design through pillows and accessories along with florals. And, of course, I think animal print is here to stay for awhile.

I don’t even have an iPhone, but I’m still crazy about this super-useful case. The built-in storage compartment is hardly noticeable but still has room for your ID, credit card, key, money and more. Plus, there is a small mirror inside. Wouldn’t it be great to go out and only have to keep up with one thing? I think so!

I thought I was over the moustache trend, but these funny moustache magnets are pulling me back in. You’ve got to admit, they’re pretty fun – and functional! And for just $10 for a pack of 14, I just might be a facial hair fan after all.

Pre-gaming has never been this easy. Gone are the days of awkwardly trying to balance your cup and purse while attempting to fill a flimsy plate with delicious (and overflowing) tailgating delicacies. This reusable party plate will make you wonder how you survived so many years without it. It can even fit on cans, disposable plastic cups and some wine glasses! Just be sure you remove the cup before drinking, or you might end up looking like this.

I love this bed. That’s all there is to it. It’s whimsical and romantic with a hint of fairytale charm, and I just love it. Can you imagine waking up every morning enveloped in this enchanted forest? Add a good book and a ceiling full of stars, and I might never leave the bedroom.
