better homes and gardens stylemaker
From my long-term BHG magazine subscription to my worn and torn grandmother's Better Homes Cookbook, I guess you could say I'm a big fan. Narrowing this board down to 15 favorites was a challenge - I have pinterest boards full of re-pins from BHG.com! I think your lovely decorated spaces, recipes, and other styled images have played a huge role in my growing Pinterest following (over 2,100 as of this week!). Thank you for inspiring us. Warmest regards, Joan Trefz of simplysouthernwedding.com.
Small Space Solutions for Every Room
Mirror, Mirror - Facing an empty wall? Fill it with flea market finds to create a delightful display filled with vintage character. Here, a trio of different sizes of mirrors draws attention to an antique dresser that's been repurposed for use as a console table. Although they're different in size, the three mirrors feature similar gold frames, which keeps the display from looking haphazard.
A puzzle you put together, plaster-cast handprints from elementary school, or a map showing a favorite destination can be a conversation-starting art piece that personalizes a space. While you’re at it, get Grandma’s old plates and platters out of the cupboard. Family treasures are more meaningful hung on a wall than stashed away.

Room Makeover: Refreshed and Improved Living Room
Patterned pillows in sunny yellow, royal blue and soft blue-gray add warmth. A mix of rustic textures, such as unfinished woods, wicker, and wrought iron, add visual weight to the light, bright spaces. In the living room, a pair of timeworn wooden tables work together to function as a central coffee table.
