BRIANA: Bust out your ‘80s bedding – florals and chintz have been back in a big way this year. Though chintz typically refers to a type of floral fabric, blooms have been gracing wallpaper, china – even tech accessories.  Are you a fan of all this flower power or do you wish floral patterns would wilt and die?

MARIANNE: I think it depends on the floral. I can’t get enough of Rifle Paper Co’s floral prints, and I’m putting this little lady in my kitchen:

KAYLA: I wish that the floral decor in [the first picture] would die right this minute. Also, I hate those hotel comforters. (Sorry.) I think modern florals or retro florals are perfect. I’ll never get tired of them – on sundresses, throw pillows, upholstered side chairs, or as a wallpapered accent wall.

KERI: I’m with Kayla. The florals in [the first picture] remind me of my grandmother’s spare bedroom (except there would be a waterbed underneath – yikes). But I’m currently drooling over this pressed flowers print:

Well friends, I am back from maternity leave and my, hasn’t it been a nice summer? I’m dusting off my work laptop and thought I’d wrap up our little nursery series. When I last left you, we had our big reveal. And now? Well, meet Hugo:

Baby Hugo!
Y’all, this baby! He is really very good. It’s been so fun getting to know him and seeing him in the room I designed. Speaking of, if you’ve been wondering about sources for the nursery, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and take a look.

If you’re still doing a bit of back-to-school shopping for the kiddos, don’t forget to send their lunch in style this year with an adorable animal lunchbox! Owls are always a fluttery favorite, but this blue and pink cheetah couldn’t be any cuter.

And for the little fellas, why not try a cute monster print or some darling dinos? Were lunchboxes this cute when I was in school?

Nothing quite counters the way I feel when I open my mailbox to find a brand-new magazine, hot off the press. A magazine’s arrival may occasionally cause me to neglect my entire to-do list. I’ve even been known to *accidentally* collect a pile of magazines in my shopping cart when stuck in a grocery store line. Sound familiar? (Or is it just my journalistic roots?)

Needless to say, I’ve stacked up quite a pile of magazines over the years. While a magazine remains glamorous for a few weeks — and in some cases, months — after a few years, it generally loses its charm. Although recycling is always a noble option for outdated magazines, why not consider upcycling? After some thorough Pinterest research, I’ve rounded up my favorite crafts for your old magazines. (Just promise me you’ll spare HGTV Magazine this time!)

DIY Paper Flowers

These handmade paper flowers are adorable, and they’re inexpensive to make. They would serve as a beautiful centerpiece or even desk accessory — either way, I’m all for flowers that never die! Check out RockNRoll Bride for all the DIY details.

Magazine Page Bowl

This bowl is the only acceptable reason to use the word ‘nifty.’ It’s not only functional (a perfect place for your kitchen counter strays) — it’s a piece of art. Stroll on over to Do It and How to see how it’s made.

I don’t know about you, but it seems that I often have an extra cardboard box on my hands. The boxes should probably serve as warning to cut back my online shopping, but instead, they put me in a Designer MacGyver state of mind. I’ve done some searching to find creative ways to upcycle these old boxes, and I think you’ll agree with me – these ideas are downright crafty. Whether you’re working with a cereal box or a dishwasher box, there is sure to be a craft that’s just your speed.

Cardboard Playhouse
This first idea really inspired my inner craftiness. It. Is. So. Stinkin’. Adorable. And it’s made from a cardboard box. What more could a MacGyver (and a mini MacGyver) ask for? Head on over to The Mouse House to see how Hayley made it. Make sure to check out the inside too — it’s just as adorable.

Ever wonder how our home editors come up with all those awesome decorating ideas and DIY projects that grace the pages of HGTV Magazine issue after issue?

Staying on trend with all things home improvement and design is our job (pretty cool, we know), but even the experts can get “designer’s block” from time to time. The simple answer to any of our hang-ups? Hello, field trip!

Last week, we hopped on a bus to Brooklyn’s IKEA for a day filled with a mix of work (that didn’t feel anything like “work”), play, and of course, a little shopping. Recognize the light fixture in the right photo? It’s nearly everywhere, including inside the bedroom featured in our latest July/August issue.

Ikea teams

After separating into blended groups of editors, writers, crafters, photographers, etc., we were given our assignment: Search the showroom and marketplace floors for new story inspiration. We were to be on the hunt for new design trends, crafty DIY projects, small-space solutions, up-and-coming color combos, and just about anything we could envision inside HGTV Magazine. What did we want to share with our readers? What were our favorite items and installations at the store? And what did we think you would fall in love with, too?

We found inspiration everywhere — even from our fashion. If your shirt matches the bed, you have to test it out, right? Who says research can’t be fun?

Teams presented their top five concepts, and let’s just say, you can look forward to some pretty ingenious ideas in the coming issues.

Every time I head to a garage sale or thrift store, I keep an eye out for a vintage ladder. They’re so multifunctional – they can find a home in almost any room, whether it’s a living room or a bathroom. I typically use them as anything besides a climbing tool. I find they’re much more charming holding a slew of colorful high heels or a stack of towels. If you have an old ladder lying around, dust it off and try one of these ideas.

Vintage Ladder Decor

A vintage ladder is a perfect addition for an empty space in a living room or bedroom. Play up the rustic feel by adorning your ladder with flower-filled mason jars. See how Sarah from A Beach Cottage decided to decorate her old ladder.

Shoe Display Ladder

This idea is handy if you’re anything like me – always searching for shoe storage! Also, why not show off your lovely collection? Shoe shopping is hard work – it deserves a little appreciation.
