If you’re an HGTV fan or just a fellow magazine junkie, you’ll be thrilled about the newly-launched HGTV Magazine on newsstands this week. (Full disclosure: We have friends and family at this hot new mag, but that’s not the only reason we’re telling you about it.)
We were smitten with one of the featured homes inside: This amazing home is in Westchester’s own Pound Ridge. The homeowner (Sue De Chiara, blogger and owner of zhush.com) worked with Greenwich-based designer, Lauren Muse. I love the industrial lighting in the kitchen, striped wallpaper on the home office ceiling, and the dreamy mudroom. More pics of fabulous homes after the jump…
HGTV Magazine is a unique “home lifestyle” magazine — totally coffee table worthy and chock-full of fun ideas for keeping your home freshly decorated AND well taken care of. It showcases drop-dead gorgeous homes but in a pragmatic way, showing the real families that live there and how they use the space.
Other highlights from the June/July issue include how to salvage yard-sale finds, paint like a pro, and create a stylish outdoor room on a budget. The above room shows the “before” and “after” of interior designer Courtney Bishop’s Charleston, S.C. front porch. (Notice the painted blue ceiling? I knew I was on to something! Read my post about my porch here.)
“Operation: Fixer-Upper” is an emotional story of one (incredibly creative) woman’s challenge to makeover her home before her husband’s return from Afghanistan. A design magazine with heart. Love.
