Last week we teamed up with our Makeover Madness finalists City Farmhouse, In My Own Style, My Fabuless Life and Thistlewood Farms for a linky party! We loved seeing everyone’s projects that were shared with us and it was incredibly difficult to pick out our favorites! We finally narrowed it down to our top five. Check out the winners and get the links to their projects below!
Thank you to everyone who shared their projects! You can see all of the submitted projects here.
Blogs are a major source of inspiration for our editors. We admire photos of their homes, try out their mouth-watering recipes, pin their creative projects, and get new ideas for our own style from the things that they share. This year Better Homes and Gardens hosted our first-ever Blogger Awards to introduce our fans to the some of the best blogs that our editors have stumbled upon.
Starting in February, readers were able to nominate the blogs that they loved. Next, our team of editors went through every single blog that was nominated to pick out their favorites. It was no easy task! You can find their top 10 picks for each category here. After we narrowed it down to the top five in each category, it was back to reader voting to decide who would be the Readers’ Choice and Editors’ Choice winners! Here’s the winners:
Readers’ Choice: The Inspired Room
Editors’ Choice: Pencil Shavings Studio
Readers’ Choice: Vintage Revivals

With the holidays just around the corner, the search for the perfect gifts has begun. Finding one-of-a-kind presents that everyone on your list will love is no easy feat! One of our editors’ favorite places to search for holiday finds is Etsy. If you haven’t heard of Etsy, it’s an online marketplace where vendors sell unique gifts, most of which are handmade. It’s perfect for finding things like jewelry, home decor and party decorations with a personal touch.
This year they’re making holiday shopping easier with their Handmade Holiday Gift Guide. If you’re searching for cute stocking stuffers, gifts for your tech-savvy friend or customized gifts, they’ve got you covered.
Curious what our editors are loving this holiday season? BHG now has an Etsy Page where we’re sharing our favorite handmade finds. Check it out to see great wall art, gifts for foodies and creative decor. Here’s just a few of our picks:
This week sixteen bloggers have been showcasing their gorgeous autumn decorating ideas on the Finding Fall Home Tour and on our Finding Fall Pinterest board. Now it’s our turn to share our favorite ideas for fall! BHG.com is packed with autumn inspiration but I’ve narrowed it down to my five favorites:
This wheelbarrow welcome is a quick and easy DIY that can be used all through the autumn season. All you need is pumpkins and acrylic paint or a permanent marker!
Fall decorating typically uses a warm color scheme which is why I love the pop of cool blue in this display. Adding another color helps the vibrant red leaves pop even more!
Vintage finds are a perfect match for autumn decorating. Fill your collection with fall foliage for a simple display!
Patios and porches are easy to overlook when prepping for fall. It only takes a few small touches can give them a wow-factor. Add extra color with seasonal mums or updated pillows.
My favorite fall decorating addition is adding small touches with colorful leaves and gourds. The natural elements are easy and inexpensive to add to any already existing display and provide the perfect amount of autumn flair.
What’s your favorite way to add seasonal touches to your home? I’d love to hear in the comments!
Hope you’ve enjoyed the week of decorating inspiration from the bloggers involved!
