I actually experienced my first heartbreak a few years ago when I fell head over heels for a flawless, hand-dyed Chesterfield sofa. Once I discovered the price, I knew it would be years before we would be together. As a lifestyle editor, this kind of heartache is hardly rare; I see beautiful furnishings every single day that I’d love to get my hands on but can’t. Luckily, stylish and budget-savvy gal Sabrina Soto, host of The High/Low Project, has scouted the trendiest pieces of the season and found their lovely — and wallet-friendly — counterparts. From cutting boards and pendant lighting to area rugs and throw pillows, Sabrina has found an affordable match for your favorite designer pieces.

Entryway

High Low Area Rugs

Company C | Rugs USA

Welcome guests this holiday season with a colorful, ornate area rug. The intricate pattern on the companyc.com rug drives the price up to $515 (left). But this similar botanical wool rug from rugsusa.com features less detail, making it a beautiful price of $168 (right).

Living Room

High Low Coffee Tables

DWR | CB2

For those who can’t get enough of marble, here’s a sleek coffee table you’re going to love. Splurge on the Italian marble-top table with a stainless steel frame for $900 at dwr.com (left), or save yourself some dough and opt for gray-veined marble at a third of the cost ($329) from cb2.com (right).

Kitchen

High Low Pot Racks

Cuisinart, Mauviel | Walmart, Calphalon

Culinary pros will love easy access from a hanging pot rack and the stunning copper and stainless-steel pans. The only true difference between the high and low pot racks is the chain links. Splurge on the stainless steel cusinart.com pot rack for $160 (left), or go for the similar buy at walmart.com for just $66 (right). For a 10-piece M’150s copper and stainless steel cookware set from mauviel.com, you’re going to pay $1,985 (left). But, if you go for the Tri-Ply copper and stainless steel 10-piece set from calphalon.com, you’ll save more than $1,500 (right).

To me, there’s nothing like a nice, cloudy day in the summer. I love having an excuse to stay inside and be a little lazy, or just hide away from the sun for a few hours on a scorching day. Sometimes you just need some cloud cover to bring down the temperature. And there’s nothing like a good afternoon rain shower to force a nap.

If you happen to have today off, then step outside and soak up the fresh air. Happy Monday!

Last week, the HGTV editors got this goodie basket from Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. We were very excited to get our hands on this paint, to say the least. Why, you ask? Because this paint can go on virtually any surface. Wood, ceramic, metal, outdoor furniture, canvas — you name it, you can paint on it without any paint prep. The chalky texture allows you to get any finish you like, whether it’s smooth or distressed. It’s low VOC, non-toxic and dries within minutes — seriously, it dries faster than my nail polish does.

What would you do if you had an empty room, a blank canvas, that needed to be designed and decorated from the ground up? It sounds like a daunting task, but if you have all the elements to build your perfect room, then there’s no reason to not begin right away. HGTV has partnered with home and lifestyle shopping site One Kings Lane to provide all the right pieces and expert tips so you can create your very own in-home getaway. Starting today, May 22 at 11 a.m. EST, you can shop this exclusive sale. Ready to build your perfect room? Let’s get started!

First, start with a solid foundation. Pick out a stylish area rug, statement chair or lucite table lamp that catches eyes from the doorway. Then, began layering on pieces that represent your personality; hang a piece of modern artwork, add texture with soft bedding, throw in patterned pillows for a punch of color or simply add a few charming accents to your side table. Follow tips from HGTV experts and designers to help create a space that represents you.

Check out some of the gorgeous pieces you can purchase today on One Kings Lane. Plus, follow these tips from HGTV experts on using them in your own home.

Build Your Perfect Room With One Kings Lane and HGTVLayer With Accents

Tip: “A decorative object can inspire an entire room. I like to look at it and highlight what I like. Is it the shape? The finish? The color? Hone in on these elements and use them in your design.” — Danielle Colding

Build Your Perfect Room With One Kings Lane and HGTVWake Up Your Wall

Tip: “Choosing art is like committing to a partner. Ask yourself: Would I like to wake up to this piece every morning? Does it make me think? Does it bring me joy? If your answer is yes, then buy it!” — Genevieve Gorder

Build Your Perfect Room With One Kings Lane and HGTVWarm Up Your Floors

Build Your Perfect Room With One Kings Lane and HGTVBring In History

Tip: “When everything is new, a home tends to fall flat. When you sprinkle in vintage pieces, their character and history immediately sparks conversation.” — Brian Patrick Flynn

Build Your Perfect Room With One Kings Lane and HGTVLayer With Accent Pillows

Tip: “When mixing patterns, one should be large scale, one can be a busy print and one can be colorful. They’ll get along better if they’re not fighting to do the same thing.” — Jillian St. Charles, Vice President of Programming

Let’s talk. What’s a must-have item in your perfect room? A sofa you can sink into? An area rug to warm up cold feet?

This time of year is my favorite for so many reasons: warm weather, spring flowers, longer days…but the thing I love most is spending sunny weekends outdoors hitting the local antique fairs. Thanks to the favorable weather, most fairs take place in the spring and fall — check this list to discover one near you.

The closest antique fair to HGTV’s Knoxville HQ is less than 20 minutes away in the Mayberry-esque hamlet of Clinton, TN. Each year in early May and October, this sleepy Southern town draws antique and collectible dealers from throughout the Southeast for their Clinch River Antiques Fair. Best of all, mixed in with the professional vendors are lots of locals who’ve cleaned out Grandma’s attic, barn or basement — so, although the prices and quality of antiques vary dramatically from booth to booth, there’s so much to choose from that I never leave empty handed.

Here are a few of the goodies I spied:

A coat of bright green paint and a liberal sanding give this 60-year-old dresser a kicky update — $150: Distressed Green Dresser

Mixed in with the antiques were a few crafts. How clever are these?! Old Reader’s Digest books cut into initials — such a great idea for a kids’ room or nursery – $15 .   Books Cut Into Initials

Curtains can make a room. They can add color, pattern, or texture instantly, and create an airy inviting space. They can also cost a pretty penny, but don’t have to.

Festival season is upon us! My Bonnaroo countdown for this year started the day I left Bonnaroo last year. Needless to say, I’m a bit excited. It’s hot; it’s crowded; you get zero hours of sleep, but boy, is it worth it. Before, it was all about being as comfortable and cool as possible during the festival, but now it’s just as important to look stylish and fashion-forward, thanks to festivals like Coachella. Festival fashion has become its own genre, and stores like Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and American Eagle Outfitters have created pieces specifically targeted to festival-goers. So, look like a rock star in your shades and fringe while listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
