7 things i’m really into this month

1 Garden stools as side tables! They’re great in a living room, especially topped with a cute little plant. 2 Our special Pops of Color section is all about not-classic colors, like trendy terra-cotta. 3 I have a soft spot for Colonials—my childhood home was one. See what kinds of houses some of the HGTV stars grew up in. 4 What makes taco night even better? A cocktail sipped from a handblown margarita glass, of course. 5 This wallpaper looks like you had a field day with spray paint. Wild! 6 Gotta love a pot of spring flowers, but blooms on a striped doormat sure are fresh too. 7 This old wire bowl got hacked! Suede-like lacing gives it a major (and easy) style upgrade.

make your frames POP! For similar colorful mats, go to artandphotoframing.etsy.com. These black frames are available at pictureframes.com. this gallery wall always works • Odd numbers make it cool. A staggered grouping of five pieces in various sizes is more interesting than an even number of pieces in symmetrical rows. • You just can’t go wrong with all black-and-white art. It’s so easy to mix and match! Photos, illustrations, abstract prints—they look so good together because they share a simple palette. • Colorful mats are a fun surprise. They add a professional finish to framed art, but doing each mat in a different bright color makes this group super-duper special.…

sneak peek: hgtv smart home 2020

there’s one thing you’d be really tempted to do in the HGTV Smart Home 2020: relax. The house does a ton of stuff for you. Skylights in the sunroom, laundry room, and covered porch automatically open when it’s nice out, an herb garden in the kitchen waters itself, and a video doorbell lets you screen visitors from an app. When outfitting the more than 4,500-square-foot house in Pittsburgh, PA, designer Tiffany Brooks matched futuristic comforts with sleek pieces that honor the past. “The city is known for its steel production, so I chose industrial pendants, metal sculptures, and a fireplace made out of steel,” she says. “There’s a mix of what it used to be—and where it’s headed.” Come on in and see for yourself. but wait… there’s more! Check out the…

wow! what color is that?

cinder rose BY FARROW & BALL “Pink kitchen cabinets may not be for everyone, but the color worked wonders in an unexciting butler’s pantry. Continuing the pink onto the wall above boosts the boldness even more.”—Harmony Grogan, Pluck Architecture, Austin, TX fresh kicks + blackest BY CLARE “My son wanted an all-black room, from the walls to his bedding. Scary! We literally met in the middle and did black-and-white. I painted them on a diagonal for an energetic boost, and a decal of a tree with gray tones softens the contrast.”—Natalie Myers, Veneer Designs, Los Angeles, CA deep fire BY BEHR “For a family of Clemson Tigers football fans, it doesn’t get any better than orange, the team’s color. We chose a shade with a tinge of red. Against white, it’s modern and edgy and, of course, fun!”—Luly…

that old thing? give it a makeover!

bring a dated desk back to life 1. Remove the drawers, and unscrew and discard the old knobs. 2. Sand and prime the frame and the drawer fronts. Let dry. Paint the frame black; let dry. 3. Arrange the drawers, faceup, so they’re standing next to one another and touching (for this desk, we positioned three on the left and one on the right). Cut enough paper to cover all the drawer fronts top to bottom. Line up the pattern as you go, adhering with wallpaper paste. 4. Use a crafts knife to slice through the paper, separating the drawers. Trim around the edges. Attach new knobs and replace the drawers. flip a frumpy chandelier 1. Remove the crystals and candle covers, and tape off the sockets with painter’s tape. 2. Spray-paint the chandelier, including the chain,…
