custom-sized inspiration

TIP #1: “Before picking your rug, size up your space using masking tape to see how a carpet could fit within the room. This will ensure that your rug is perfectly sized to your needs.” TIP #2: “CUSTOMIZATION CAN MEAN NOT HAVING TO PUT YOUR FURNITURE ON TOP OF A CARPET. HAVE YOUR CARPET CUT AROUND EXISTING PIECES ON THE ROOM’S PERIMETER TO ADD A UNIQUE FLAIR.” LOOKING FOR A CARPET TO HELP UPDATE AND COMPLETE YOUR SPACE? Look no further than beneath your feet and imagine a rug that will become the star of your room. Interior designer Danielle Colding has just the tips to ensure that your carpet is walked over, but never looked over.

no, it’s a flea market flip!

is it magic? my favorite summer activities include hosting backyard cookouts, wearing colorful flip-flops, eating ice cream sandwiches, and spending all day at outdoor flea markets. I have a weakness for Good. Old. Stuff. Furniture, art, baskets, jars, dishes, chandeliers—the list is long. Some of my old things are still exactly as I found them, like my favorite vintage road sign, from Joplin, MO. Others I’ve completely redone, like my dining room chairs (see them on my Instagram feed, @hgtvmagsara). Even if a great piece is cracked, dented, and covered in dust, I’m not afraid to buy it. With a little TLC, almost anything can be reincarnated into something modern and cool. Our lifestyle editor, Jodi Kahn, agrees. She makes even the junkiest junk into like-new pieces for our Flea Market Flips column.…

dear hgtvmagazine,

I’m in love with Malene Barnett’s kitchen from the March issue (“A Kitchen Full of Memories”). It felt like home to me. Her style is exactly the look I want to convey in every room. —Tanya Malcolm, Fernie, British Columbia The first story I turn to is always “Copy the Curb appeal.” In every issue, the homes and front yards you feature are warm, welcoming, and full of clever ideas. even though I’ve lived in my house for 25 years, I’m still always on the hunt for new ways to pretty up the exterior. —Alice Lee, Helena, MT The color palette you used on your April cover [above] gave me an idea for how to perk up my patio furniture. Using similar shades of coral, aqua, and yellow, I painted my chairs and table and a swing.…

how bad is it…

…to feed your dog table scraps? Those leftovers can make Fido sick as a dog—or worse. People food is often too greasy, caloric, or spicy for your pup’s gastrointestinal system, leading to digestive distress or weight gain, says Louise Murray, D.V.M., vice president of the ASPCA Animal Hospital in New York, NY. Certain people foods can even prove fatal to canines—like grapes, which can cause kidney failure. If you want to slip your pooch tidbits, Murray suggests bland, unseasoned food only, like baked chicken or cooked veggies. really bad! …to clean your grill with household cleaner? All-purpose cleaner is typically too wimpy to tackle baked-on ickiness. “You need something stronger,” says Randy Romero, president of Atlanta-based Sparkle Grill Cleaning, who battles grill buildup with a heavyduty oven cleaner. If you’re cleaning a gas grill,…
