June is Great Outdoors Month, and for good reason. These warm summer nights are begging us to get out of our homes. So, while the nights are still balmy, why not throw a movie night with the stars? No, I’m not saying you should invite Leo DiCaprio. What I mean is, move the party outside and screen movies in your own backyard! Here are a few tips for making your cinema soirée a success:

Throw an Outdoor Movie Night
Create a Display
First things first: set up your theater. DIY Network shows you exactly how to transform your backyard into an outdoor entertainment center. Renting an inflatable screen for your movie night is a great option, but you can also project the movie on a white drop cloth or large white wall.

If you’ve been following along on my antiquing adventures then you know 2 things about me:
1) That I spend a fair amount of time at estate sales.
2) That I’m all about a serious bargain.

Enter this perfectly distressed, cane-backed French Provincial headboard that I recently found in an Oak Ridge, TN garage for… wait for it… just 10 bucks! I couldn’t believe the estate sellers had priced it SO low — especially considering how hot French antiques are right now. I vaulted over a pile of old lumber, pulled off the price tag and hot-footed it straight to the check-out table to pay before anyone else could lay claim.

Once I placed it in my guest room, I remembered one small detail about older headboards — they’re short. Often much, much shorter than modern headboards. So short, in fact, that the pillows dwarf my new French beauty:French Provincial Headboard Before Learn my designer trick for making this headboard much taller

In honor of today’s Season 2 release of Orange Is the New Black, here are a few examples of how you can incorporate orange in your home. This vibrant color is perfect for infusing some energy into your decor. Try pairing it with my personal favorites, turquoise or aqua, for a playful accent.

So, if you need a break from your OITNB binge, peel your eyes away from Netflix and check out some of these design ideas:

BRIANA: This week’s topic comes via Jessica: the resurgence of tie-dye. It’s very summery and historically, we’ve been sweet on shibori, but what do you think of this trend? Is tie-dye decor groovy or does it make you think of a pint of Wavy Gravy?

KELLEY: I miss the old hippies who used to hang out around here, so I’m glad to see some hippie-dom coming back. I can do without the patchouli, tho.

DAVID HAYNES: Did someone say hippies?  As a veteran of more than just a few Grateful Dead shows, I will recuse myself from this thread. But before I do, if you want to witness extreme tie-dye, you might take a look at this:

Headphones recommended. Things start to kick in at around the two-and-a-half minute mark.

TREVOR LANE: The traditional psychedelic neon-hued tie-dye reminds me of childhood vacation Bible school crafts. But this more modern take on the trend is great. I love monochrome and am obsessed with indigo. The more geometric shapes are incredibly beautiful, like the Crate and Barrel napkin in the second link. If I could do it… I would.

MEG ALLAN COLE: I support hand dyeing in all ways. I used to rock some pretty atrocious colored tie-dye in the 90′s, and those are moments we can leave in the past, but this new organic hand dye trend using muted mellow colors or bold jewel tones is just gorgeous. It gives off such a dreamy, tropical look and vibe that I am WAY into.

Meg's dip dye pillow

There is something about the mellow, organic vibe dip-dying creates that is so lovely and oh-so-summer, to me. A deceivingly easy DIY, considering how intimidating it looks. I’ve tried my stained hands at this many times before (Re: wear gloves), and shared the in-progress process and the results on my blog, Nest. Liz touched upon this trend a few weeks ago in her Color of the Month post, so clearly we are all digging the dye right now.

This week I felt the need to share just how simple it can be to create the look over on HGTV Handmade.

Please DO try this at home. The result is really quite dreamy and I can see this being a great addition to any couch, bedroom, or even a pop of custom color in a new dorm room.

Inspired by this lush and lovely dip-dye duvet set at Anthropologie, I took the project into a home textile place with a set of dip-dye pillows in a palette of blues and purple for my HGTV Handmade video.

With Memorial Day behind us and summer vacations on the horizon, our color team was craving a bright, beachy color this June. So when Briana proposed this gorgeous Burnt Coral, we were all smitten. Can you believe the vote was nearly unanimous?

This color takes the classic peachy pink coral and turns up the color value a few notches — think something a little more cinnabar or vermillion. This darker, orange-red coral is au courant and looks great with other spring and summer colors.  Take a look:

Guest editor and Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines is also a big fan. “Burnt coral is a nice accent color that is fresh and fun, yet still sophisticated,” she says. “I love to incorporate this color with pillows, vases and other small accents. I tend to blend white with burnt coral, because it offers a really nice contrast that is easy on the eye.”

Burnt coral also plays well with light, airy blues, soft grays and dusty lavender. It can be surprisingly soothing when paired with cooler hues, as seen in this retro dining room:

For just a little bit of burnt coral, add a chic throw pillow on the living room sofa or atop the bedspread. (Trendy nautical motifs optional.)

Last weekend marked the unofficial start of summer, which means we’re getting even closer to seeing the season’s bounty of fruits and veggies. Apricots are one of my favorite summer fruits, both for their taste and nutritional value, but also for the soft yellow-orange hue that feels so perfectly seasonal. What better way to kick off the month of June?

For this warm weather season, many designers are harnessing the impact power of accent pillows. Whether it is a coordinated look, or an eclectic mix of different styles, the beauty of this trend is that you can continuously change the mood and feel of a room by simply switching out a few inexpensive cushion covers.
