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!”
This home, especially the living room, is all about creating one seamless transition from the outside to the inside, all with a Texas-style design. “Even though we had amazing furniture and an incredible house, we wanted to bring in the outdoors,” explains HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “There is an amazing amount of windows that really make this part of the outside.”
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 Olson residence in Sandy Springs, Georgia after the addition of a master bedroom retreat by licensed contractor Chip Wade. As part of the renovation, Chip Wade added a open air bathroom that can be viewed from all areas of the suite. By finishing the incomplete attic space, Chip Wade was able to design a spacious retreat for the homeowners to escape to when the house is feeling too crowded, as seen on HGTV's Elbow Room.
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.
An in-room wet bar with a penny tile backsplash is a convenient touch to the HGTv Smart Home 2015 master bedroom. “By using a remote control, the area where the coffee maker is can lift up to reveal a shelf beneath the coffee maker where we have staged a martini maker and cocktail utensils.,” explains house planner Jack Thomasson. “It’s really cool, because it converts from a coffee maker area to a fun, kind of kitschy smart feature.”

As part of the renovation, Chip Wade completed the unfinished attic with enough space for the parents to have a separate retreat in the house. The space was complete with a sitting area, walk-in closet and open air bathroom, as seen on HGTV's Elbow Room.
A coffered ceiling with beadboard adds character and texture to the homey cookery in HGTV Dream Home 2015. Recessed lighting and a perfectly-proportioned skylight create the ideal lighting combination in this bright, beautiful space. “I think everyone who comes in is astounded by the quality of the craftsmanship,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “The people who worked on this house are really proud of what they do, and it’s pretty exhilarating.”
To visually connect the HGTV Dream Home 2015 master suite, each room plays off of the colors and fabrics of the last space. “The bathroom ceiling and the hall and the master bathroom are the same color, and we used the same sisal in the bathroom as the rug in the hallway,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “There’s really a connection of feel and color palette. It’s very serene and peaceful, so you have the same experience in all rooms in this part of the house.”
