In one corner of the neutral, contemporary living room, built-in shelves create the perfect home for the television and other of the homeowners' prized possessions. Lit by two small lamps, these shelves provide a cool display space, while cabinets below house the hardware and attachments for the television elegantly out of sight.
With the television being the focal point of this living room space, designers wanted to frame it elegantly as well as add some functionality to the bare wall around it, so custom shelves were built to surround it. Above the TV, open shelves display photographs and knick knacks that add a personal touch to the home, while below, open storage gives the homeowners a place to keep their books and movies within arm's reach.
This multi-purpose living area contains plenty of seating for the girls in the house. On one side of the room, an armoire conceals a television, and on the other side a piano rests between two windows that allow in plenty of natural light. This design makes this living room the perfect place to practice a sonata, have a movie night or just relax with friends.
No matter what relaxes you, this bathroom has it. For the TV junkie, there is a television mounted just above the fireplace that helps to provide the space with extra warmth and ambiance. The backsplash of the space is designed to look like water, helping the space to be even more relaxing.
The Parker family wanted their new space to focus on the family, so Chip and his team included lots of comfy seating. He also decided to take the focus off the television by hiding it behind a piece of artwork so that the family could focus on each other.
This master bathroom really has it all, including ceiling speakers and a wall-mounted television that can be easily seen from the tub and the shower. Sit back, relax and catch up on your favorite shows, all while enjoying a relaxing soak in the contemporary bathtub.
Beneath a large flat-screen television sits a wooden storage shelf that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing in the HGTV Smart Home 2015 master bedroom. Because the TV is conveniently mounted to the wall, the top of the shelf is reserved for a few lovely pieces, including a delicate orchid and white table lamp.
The master bedroom of this turn of the century home was dysfunctional, but the designers moved the French doors to the corner of the room to make the space function smoothly. In the back of the space, the porch was inclosed to make a private TV nook for the couple. The navy shelving matches the tufted navy headboard in the main part of the room, while the open shelves give the couple a place to store their books and small decorations.
An LED TV sits in a rustic niche across from the couch. “We have a lot of fencing outside that is cedar. We brought that inside, so there is a real definite tie in,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “We took that cedar, put it in the back of the niche where the TV is, and we painted the opposite wall.”
This section of the modern living room is a great space for entertaining and television viewing. A large, neutral sectional and two brown, modern chairs provide plenty of seating, while custom millwork frames the television making it a stylish part of the space's design.
