Warm cream walls add a comforting feeling to this traditional bedroom. Matching striped chairs and a rose colored sofa create a private seating area while custom drapes and white shutter blinds add depth and privacy.
“The living room can be a guest room, because we have an accessible bathroom and power blinds on all of the windows,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “You can have complete privacy when you’re in this space.”
Green pallets have been used to make two rolling sofas, which have been pushed together in the corner of this room, covered with white cushions and decorated with throw pillows. A blue valance hangs on the window above the sofas which uses blinds to let in light without compromising privacy.
The furnishings in this room all serve a multipurpose. The chenille sectional can be pulled out to make a queen sleeper bed. The checkerboard ottomans double as tables and extra seating as well as punctuate the room's rich color palette of mocha, pomegranate, cream and tan. The classic wood window blinds allow for privacy or dramatic lighting.
The unique master bedroom features a wall of book-matched marble from Italy and a panoramic view of the landscape. The house sits on four acres and is surrounded by 20 additional acres of estate. Remote-controlled blinds, which can be operated via smartphone, provide additional privacy when desired, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn refurbished the living area of this 1975 houseboat by updating the original fiberglass sofas with nautical paint and reupholstering the cushions in brown indoor/outdoor Sunbrella fabric accented with white piping detail. A clear Lucite table with storage underneath gives the illusion of a bigger space. Miniature aluminum blinds allow for a view of the water, but provide privacy at night.
