My Love: HGTV

What would I do without it [HGTV]?! I'm being completely serious. I love watching -- Jonathan and Drew Scott renovate run-down homes on Property Brothers and Buying and Selling:

Nicole Curtis "restore old homes to their former glory" on Rehab Addict:

David and Hilary battle it out on Love It or List It:

And [my new favorite!] Income Property where homeowners' mortgage payments are drastically reduced (and sometimes even eliminated!) due to the renting of their basement apartment:

These are only to name a few! Come to my house on any given weekend and you're guaranteed to see HGTV airing for hours on end.

Although I love all of the above shows, the magazine is probably my favorite. Have you read it -- the HGTV Magazine? Normally, I don't buy magazines; I love to go to the bookstore, sit, and read tons of home decor magazines. However, the HGTV Magazine is the exception to the rule. I anxiously await its arrival every month and I've yet to be disappointed! This month is no exception...

Starting with this fabulous color, Frosted Pomegranate by Behr, for a front door [granted, I am partial to red front doors!]:

I've seen this light fixture, from IKEA, many times, but never spray painted. I love the difference that little bit of gold is making! I really need to start whipping out the cans of spray paint whenever I want a quick fix to something blah; it's amazing what can be done with it!

HGTV Magazine featured their whole house. How charming and welcoming is the front of their home?! Nothing beats great curb appeal!  I really love the pops of red with the adirondack chair and flowers.

And last, but not least, I was so thankful for their notes on 51 different shades of gray. Considering that I'm thinking of repainting the living room and kitchen again, this should come in very handy.

If you have yet to take a look at an issue of this magazine [which published its first issue in July 2012], you should definitely take a look. I promise you won't be disappointed! So there you have it -- my, no longer secret, love affair with HGTV! What would I do without you? :)
