With its own private deck and easy access, via telescoping glass doors, to an outdoor space, the master bedroom in the HGTV Smart Home 2013 offers a luxurious retreat. An oversized photograph draws the eye in the room's far corner and has a nice contrast to all the peacefulness without being jarring.
“We have two L-shaped sectionals facing each other, and then we have two niches that overlook the street,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “Each of those has a chez that is really like a bed, so you could have people sleep there if you wanted.”
As a clever nod to their treehouse style, each one of the three Snow Bear Chalets is named after an indigenous species of tree. The Tamarack boasts two bedrooms and was constructed by the same company that built the HGTV Dream Home 2019. FUN FACT: The tamarack tree looks a lot like a Christmas tree, but it’s 40-feet tall, sheds its needles and thrives on steep slopes!
In the dining room doubles as a work space at the 2014 HGTV Smart Home, the modern styling of classic, upholstered armchairs with nailhead detail bring elegance into the space. A repeated theme of white and red is creatively translated into houndstooth accent pillows.
With plenty of seating and a vibrant color palette, the loft is the perfect place for a slumber party or family movie night. “This is kind of the great big blue room,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “I think 20 people could be up here watching TV.”
Whether you’re hosting a night of super bowl fun or catching up on your favorite shows, this wall-mounted TV is a sight to behold. “We have a really awesome 80” ultra-high definition television up in the loft, and it’s quite spectacular,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 house planner Jack Thomasson.
“The goal is always to maximize space and get as much storage as possible, so you can get things put away and not have them out,” says designer Linda Woodrum of the HGTV Smart Home 2015 master closet design. “The more places you have to put things, the less clutter you have out, and it just makes everything look better.”
Daybeds with curtains are great for extra seating as well as slumber parties. We’ve totally encased the beds in curtains,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “They become private little rooms, but you could also lie there and watch TV. This is like the slumber party mecca or super bowl party room.”
The perfect pairing of vintage and contemporary, pendant lights become the piece de la resistance in the kitchen of HGTV Smart Home 2013. The walls, ceiling and the island cabinet base boast a vibrant beachy-blue hue that invites relaxation. The 6-foot island, capped in quartz, serves as both workspace and casual-chic dining area.
Neutral walls and dark hardwood floors set the foundation for the loft living area of HGTV Smart Home 2013. A rustic wood dresser with long iron drawer handles holds two green jars under a mounted television. A lime green chair, brown and white chevron pillow and brown and white rug add eye-catching color and pattern to the space.
A custom window seat doubles as a daybed and provides extra storage with built-in bookshelves in this sophisticated kid's room, found in HGTV Smart Home 2014. A queen-sized bed rests against a striped wall of wood panels painted various colors found throughout the room. The dark wood dresser and TV are nestled in an alcove to provide more space in the room.
Colorful and comfy, these gorgeous blue sectionals are just begging to be enjoyed. According to HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum, “We never sit on the furniture, but of all the houses we have ever worked on, this is the hardest place not to sit at the end of those long days, because it’s very cool!”
Neon house numbers are a fun touch that make a big statement and make sure guests can always find their way. “Our white neon street numbers on the front of the house are very cool,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 house planner Jack Thomasson. “They were fabricated locally; there’s kind of a neon story here in Austin.”
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.”
The subtle gray tones in this wood dining table bring down the intensity of the red and black decor in this dining room that doubles as a work space at the 2014 HGTV Smart Home. Having a dual-purpose room is significant," explains interior designer Linda Woodrum. "Homeowners can easily host casual dinner parties in the evening and set up a hard-working office space during the day."
A mosaic horse statue brings another element of Texas life into the charming living room. According to HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum, “There are a lot of fun objects in the room that add to this story and are subtle references to being in Texas with a lot of its wide open countryside – little subtle tweaks that reference where we are without being too in-your-face.”
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.”
“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.”
