Name: Sara Peterson
Title: Editor-in-chief for HGTV Magazine
Describe your personal home style in three words.
Comfortable, casual, blue.
What’s one home décor item you can’t live without this winter?
Sandalwood-scented soy candles. Something about that scent makes a whole room feel warm and cozy.
What’s one DIY you do to make your home feel like home?
Painting! I'm always painting — walls, old furniture, doors. I love to paint. I'm even going to try painting a laminate countertop.
What is your favorite “under-the-radar” home shopping spot?
It's not really under the radar, but lately I've been shopping at Luluandgeorgia.com.
What makes it so special?
They carry lots of colorful, happy accessories. I really like the patterns on their rugs and pillows.
What was the last item you purchased there?
Two twin-size Benji headboards in sky blue for my guest bedroom. I've found that I get better use out of having two twin beds in a guest bedroom instead of one double or queen bed.
