Summer is the season at HGTV that we spend most of our time showcasing beautiful outdoor spaces.  But some rooms inside the home tend to hold our attention all year long.  Kitchens and baths are always the two most talked about spaces on our websites and social media pages.  Viewers are either dreaming of a brand new kitchen or bath, planning a new project, or finishing a renovation.  Kitchens and baths are just a hot topic any time of the year.

That’s why we thought it would be fun to get together with the Scripps Networks’ family of brands and host a Kitchen & Bath Hour all month long. Tuesdays (8/7c) in July, you can find HGTV, DIYNetwork, HGTVRemodels, and HGTV Frontdoor sharing our most inspiring kitchen and bath designs, clever storage tips, and money-saving project ideas.

And it’s all happening at our favorite social media destination, Pinterest.  It’s super easy to join us.  Just log on to Pinterest Tuesday evenings and click on the special board, where we will be hosting the event.  Then just wait for the “pin-spiration”…we’ll be there with you pinning LIVE.

Never joined a pin party?  Get all the details on what they’re about right here.

So, whether you’re dreaming or doing, you don’t want to miss our Kitchen & Bath Hour, Tuesdays at 8p/7c.  See you on Pinterest!

And in the meantime, set the mood with these beautiful kitchens and baths.

One of the many wonderful things about working at HGTV is being around folks who love to help their community and give back to others.  That’s especially apparent with our talented designers and renovation experts.

If you follow John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino from HGTV’s Cousins Undercover, you’ve probably noticed them out everywhere across the country helping homeowners in need.  That’s not only the premise of their show; it’s what they love to do!

One really exciting project they’ve been working on with The Ellen Show just saw its amazing completion this week.  Yesterday the guys revealed a brand new, completely furnished home for Ellen viewer, Susie Conway and her family.

If you didn’t catch the show, watch a clip here.

Not only was this a storybook happy ending for this incredible family, that new home was nothing short of fabulous!  And we have to brag for just a second…the entire space was designed with products from the HGTV HOME line of interior and outdoor furniture, paint, wallpaper and lighting.

Here are a few of my favorite rooms:

The Conways’ new dining room. Susie wanted to include the saying ‘Be kind to one another’ to keep Ellen’s spirit of generosity alive in their home.

 

Clean, bright, and offering plenty of storage, the Conways’ new kitchen is a perfect place for cooking meals together and entertaining family and friends.

 

The new family room focuses on family first – perfect for a tight-knit crew like the Conways!

As a proud, card-carrying mama’s boy, I’m “mushy” about Mom 365 days a year. But this weekend is Mother’s Day and we men get a “free pass” to be extra sentimental about the special women in our lives.

Probably the most wonderful thing about this weekend is that we celebrate Mom in all walks of life…from the mom who’s just starting out to our moms that are now grandmas and great grandmas…and everyone else in between, even mommy-to-be!

Depending on the timeline in your career as mom, you may be spending the weekend planning, designing, or furnishing your first nursery to make room for baby.

If you’re in that group, consider HGTV HOME your nursery central.  Whether you love traditional, modern or in between, HGTV HOME has just released two collections of Nursery furniture to fit your style – at an affordable price.

The HGTV HOME Baby collections were designed to grow with your child and family. For instance, I’m loving the Grayson “4-in-1″ crib–it switches from crib to toddler to daybed to full size bed.  And the Hayden crib converts to a pair of twin headboards.  These pieces just make for a very smart (and stylish) long term investment.

Television icon and entertainment pioneer Ellen DeGeneres will executive produce a six-episode design competition series for HGTV – her first on cable television. Produced by Ellen’s production company, A Very Good Production, and A. Smith & Co. in association with Telepictures, Ellen’s Design Challenge is scheduled to premiere in 2015 and will feature six competitors as they tackle ingenious challenges to sketch, design and build extraordinary furniture in just 24 hours. Throughout the series, the contestants must showcase their creativity and versatility to impress a panel of judges. The last one standing will win a cash prize.

“I’m so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture,” said DeGeneres. “One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that’s a story for another time.”

During the series, the competitors will face design challenges that will keep them on their toes and, since the clock will be ticking, they will be paired with an expert carpenter to help them complete the task at hand. The series will highlight Ellen’s passion for furniture and house design as well as her expertise in the subject. In addition, there will be a six-part online companion series that will invite visitors to participate in another side of the competition and get to know the designers even better.

“There has been a lot of dancing in our halls since we shared that we will be collaborating with Ellen,” said Kathleen Finch, president, HGTV and DIY Network. “When she talked to us about her love of buying and renovating homes, her personal passion for the creative process of furniture design emerged as something that she wanted to explore more. Since HGTV is the ultimate forum in this space, and since no other network can deliver an audience who is as enthusiastic as she is about the creative process, we just had to make it happen.”

Keep checking IHeartHGTV and HGTV for more news on this exciting new series.
