Home Envy: HGTV Magazine’s Cover Look

Home Envy--HGTV Magazine Cover-2016

Honestly, when it comes to “me time” I’m such a glutton for a drink, some Wheat Thins, and my favorite HGTV shows. I love love love Fixer Upper and Property Brothers. The home transformations that they do honestly inspire me to have better decor than what I typically buy. Plus, I love to fantasize that one day they can renovate a home for me as well.

My love for HGTV shows transcends towards the HGTV Magazine, too. I usually just buy magazines every now and then at the store but with this one, it’s sent straight to me.

Lately, I’ve been looking into a non-neutral colored couch to invest in, so I’m glad that for the February issue brightly colored decor was featured. It’s really been inspiring me for when I get back to decorating my space again. Below are some of my favorites decor pieces I’ve been looking at, inspired by the HGTV magazine cover look.

Home is where the heart is…

Okay, I admit it. I’m barely a twenty-something and I love HGTV. The idea of making the place where you call home comfy and gorgeous just sounds like a grand idea. I even read the HGTV magazine more than I read Vogue or Glamour (..and that’s saying something).

However, no matter how many times I read the magazine or watch Color Splash, I can never sum up the energy to do something with my tiny bit of space I call home. It’s also hard to do anything about my space when it’s so tiny versus the homes you see them makeover on tv. So I have taken to the internet to see what others have accomplished with their smaller spaces–inspiration time!!

What an adorable and quirky kitchen!!

The thought of a navy tufted sofa (like this one in Glitter Guide’s Emily Henderson feature) makes me giddy–no lie.

Nikki Rappaport’s studio (as featured on The EveryGirl) is the perfect mix of chic and bright and comfy.

So badly do I wish to style my next apartment here in Oregon so I can have this place feel even more like home. Does anybody have any quick (and easy) styling tricks that they’ve tried? Would love to hear them!

As always, have a wonderful day!
