Quick and easy updates brought springtime charm to the covered deck of the 2015 HGTV Spring House. From grommeted outdoor drapery to an upcycled swing chair, here's a closer look at the outdoor space's high-energy accents.
Throughout the home, recessed can lights illuminate the space. According to HGTV Smart Home 2015 house planner Jack Thomasson, “We have really great hip designer lighting around the house. We have somewhere between 42 and 45 can lights in the house. All of the decorative fixtures throughout the house use LED bulbs, including the candelabra bulbs above the dining table and all the lamps; so we have a complete LED story here.”
HGTV Dream Home 2015 is a breathtaking home in Martha’s Vineyard with charming architectural details and a classic Cape Cod look. “You pull up and think, ‘Oh my gosh. This is the best house ever,’” says the home’s interior designer Linda Woodrum. “That’s how I feel, and I would like to win this house!”
Spacious and luxurious, the gorgeous bathroom from HGTV Dream Home 2015 is a peaceful escape reserved for the masters of the house. Stunning tile work, luxurious fabrics and a calming color palette blend to form a decadent space designed for relaxation.
“One of the wonderful spaces in this house is the pergola-covered deck with an amazing dining area,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum, who feels the back deck will allow homeowners to take advantage of warm Austin nights.
“This house feels like it belongs here. It’s really part of the vernacular of Martha’s Vineyard, and you’re not able to discern whether it was built a hundred years ago or today,” says HGTV Dream Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “It just feels right for the area.”
“Two large paintings on either side of the front door were sourced locally — much of the art in the house is local,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum of the striking artwork art found in HGTV Dream Home 2015.
A clerestory window above the fireplace and shelves is an interesting focal point that adds brightness to the HGTV Dream Home 2015 great room. "The light in this house is phenomenal, and I think everyone that comes in comments on how bright and airy it is,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Painted in Pure White by Sherwin Williams, HGTV Dream Home 2015 plays with light and looks even more spacious from within. “I think the whole house was painted with a brush, nothing sprayed – it’s an immaculate paint job,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Keep your holiday decor traditional and vintage this year with front porch styling that's timeless, farmhouse-inspired and packed with old-school country charm. The front porch of the 2015 HGTV.com Holiday House is packed with classic country charm. Playing off of the mustard and barn red tones of the home's exterior, textural items packed with character and flea market appeal add a festive touch.
“The Velux skylights have blackout shades and work from a remote as well as off of an app,” says the HGTV Smart Home 2015 house planner Jack Thomasson of the natural lighting in the master bedroom. “They are a beautiful feature in the house, and they bring wonderful natural light into the space. Plus, with the electronics, they add a lot of versatility to whether you want to black out a room, let the light in, or even open them remotely to let heat out of the house.”
The sparkling, contemporary chandelier is a gorgeous highlight in the HGTV Smart Home 2015 master bedroom. According to the house planner, Jack Thomasson, “There was a very deliberate orientation of that fixture, so that at night time when the light is on and you’re on the street, it’s like this perfect framing of the fixture from the front of the house. We spent a lot of time working on getting it the right distance from the ceiling to see it from the street, and it looks really cool.”
This home, especially the living room, is all about creating one seamless transition from the outside to the inside, all with a Texas-style design. “Even though we had amazing furniture and an incredible house, we wanted to bring in the outdoors,” explains HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “There is an amazing amount of windows that really make this part of the outside.”
