Hidden light above the shelves keeps the spacious great room from HGTV Dream Home 2015 light even after dark. “On the darkest of dark days when it has been raining, it still feels light and bright and airy,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “I think that for this part of the country, it’s ingenious. It just has a really beautiful quality of life when you’re inside the home in this great room.”
Reclaimed wood shelves turn a corner of this contemporary living room into a fun display space, with items artfully and cleanly arranged. Bold blue tones in the artwork are repeated in bright-colored accessories.
Built-in shelves surrounded by stacked limestone showcase decorative vases and figurines collected from traveling. Contemporary windows without grids look out over treetops, offering peaceful views from the dining room table. Gray leather chairs and a sleek white dining table let the view take center stage.
This open plan kitchen features custom wooden cabinets with built-in shelving, providing a spot for the homeowner's handmade pottery. Track lighting and natural light from several windows illuminate the kitchen space.
An entire wall composed of built-in shelves neatly displays books and personal treasures in this home office. A chic rolling chair in white pairs, a black wood desk and zebra rug complete the stylish design.
In the living room wall to wall built-in shelving gives the homeowners plenty of room to display their extensive collection of books and unique statues. Below the shelves, cabinets provide storage for music and DVDs, while mounted lamps highlight the cabinets and shelving, creating a focal point in the living room.
