If you happen to be a country music fan like me, then you probably get super excited around this time of year.  June is almost here, and that can only mean one thing…CMA Music Festival 2015!  And since HGTV is headquartered right here in East Tennessee, it’s only a hop, skip, and a jump to Nashville.

If you have plans to attend the event this year, swing by the HGTV Lodge and say hi to Scripps Networks talent Alison Victoria, David Bromstad, Nan Kelley, and Suzanne Alexander.

Guests can catch over 20 live performances and attend meet and greets with some of the biggest names in country music, including Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner and Kip Moore (check out the full schedule here). With only 300 attendees during each show, air conditioning and a mobile device charging station, The Lodge is the perfect place to relax and unwind in the middle of the city. For admission to The Lodge, fans can register for free tickets starting May 28 at CMAFest.com.

For more information about the HGTV Lodge and CMA Fest 2015, visit HGTV On the Road and follow HGTV on Instagram and Twitter for daily updates and exclusive content during the festival.

They take on a new adventure every week on their hit show Flip or Flop, and now Tarek and Christina El Moussa are taking on their biggest project to date – welcoming a new baby to their family. The California couple, already parents to their daughter Taylor, recently announced that they are expecting a baby boy at the end of the summer. We’re following along as Christina takes us on the journey of her pregnancy – from finding out the sex of their baby, planning and creating the perfect nursery, to staying fit while pregnant and more.

Christina and Tarek El Moussa from Flip or Flop

“Tarek is SO excited about having a baby boy,” Christina said. “He loves baseball so I’m trying to make the nursery incorporate that and work with my style. The theme is going to be rustic with vintage baseball elements.”

Using items from local shops around their Southern California home paired with unique Etsy finds, we’ll follow along as Christina and Tarek create their son’s nursery. Every other Tuesday we’ll bring you the Flip or Flop: Baby Diaries. It’s guaranteed to be a flipping success and most definitely not a flop.

When we stepped into the space adjacent to this home’s kitchen, we knew we had some work to do. The room served as an informal dining area, but it had lackluster style and was poorly defined. The solution? Create a built-in dining banquette reminiscent of a classic diner. Here’s how to recreate the look in your home.

Vintage Breakfast Nook From HGTV's Fixer Upper

Silva Family Breakfast Nook

Pick a Theme. The banquette’s fun diner theme carries through to the accessories. We grouped bright vintage clocks on the wall to create an unexpected art piece, and filled the table with simple vintage-inspired dishware. The sleek stainless steel chandelier adds a modern touch that keeps the theme from feeling too kitschy.

Vintage Good Eats Sign Featured on HGTV's Fixer Upper

Add Personality. This is a home, not a house — show off your family’s personality with colorful accents and unique artwork. This metal “Good Eats” sign above the breakfast nook is one of two that we had had custom made for the Silva’s new home.

Cookbook Storage From HGTV's Fixer Upper
Don’t Forget the Storage! Leave no wall without a function. Here, the back of the dinette finds a purpose as storage for the family’s favorite cookbooks.

When we walked into this 1950s house, we gave its lack of style a name: Messy Midcentury Modern. More than messy, though, the bedroom was a blank slate. We filled it up with personality and gave it a retro look to match the rest of the house. Here are three tips to help you achieve this look in your bedroom!

Midcentury Modern Bedroom From HGTV's Fixer Upper

Midcentury Modern Bedroom, After

It’s All About Balance. With the bed placed in the center of the wall, and keeping a modern design style in mind, it was important to create balance with the pieces on either side. Here, we used identical light fixtures and nightstands to create classical symmetry in this space.

Midcentury Modern Bedroom From Fixer Upper

Add Texture on the Walls.  An exposed brick accent wall painted soft gray provides an unexpected textural element in this bedroom. On the opposite wall, a wooden number sign adds even more dimension and personalizes the space for this family of 7.

Look Up to Save Space. In a small bedroom, every inch of bedside table space matters. Try hanging pendant lighting rather than using classic lamps not only to create visual interest, but also to free up valuable space for books, flowers and other nighttime essentials.
