According to interior designer Linda Woodrum, the master bedroom walls in HGTV Smart Home 2015 were executed under a very fast-paced timeline. “The room was a metamorphosis when we went up,” says Linda. “The boards (along the walls) replicate the vertical board and battens that are outside on the exterior of the house, so that’s the connection.” By mirroring the outside look within the master bedroom, the home’s modern, Texas style is elevated and really driven home.
