HGTV Magazine

I just got my first issue of HGTV Magazine (June 2013); it's big and full of colorful home and craft ideas. And Vern Yip has a piece on measurements, including coffee table, backsplash, and towel bar heights; distances between recessed lights, your TV and sofa, your bed and nightstand; etc.

There are tips for prepping your home for vacation. And the How bad is it column answers questions about dousing charcoal with lighter fluid and other things you may have wondered about... And they tested various wipes and report on them.

I love looking at beautiful paint colors, such as Popcorn (a buttery shade) from Pratt & Lambert, Greyhound (blue, green and gray) from Benjamin Moore, and Cook's Blue (rich) from Farrow & Ball.
Btw, "when you're working with a color that's not a strong color: Pair it with white to make it stand out." There are lots more decorating tips, plus an article on how to identify and deal with yard pests.

Sparkle note: If you drag a treat from the box, and click on it again, Sparkle will jump up and catch it!
