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.”
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.
“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.
“There’s a Texas limestone edging around the perimeter of our landscape, which is actually salvaged from here on the site from the house that had been torn down,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 house planner Jack Thomasson. “It has a lot of character and rough edges.”
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.
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.
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.”
“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.”
Whatever the season, this amazing back patio on the HGTV Dream Home 2015 is sure to get a lot of use. From entertaining guests, to providing the perfect spot to relax, the stone patio offers comfortable outdoor seating and an exquisite view of the house.
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.
The master bedroom suite in HGTV Dream Home 2015 takes up the entire right wing of the house and includes the master bedroom, master bathroom and a spacious master closet. Each area is painted in a gorgeous blue that separates the suite from the rest of the home, making it a beautiful, calming escape.
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 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.”
