The blue bedroom at Smithfield continues its theme in a selection of blue-spined tomes. The fireplace is cleverly filled with an assortment of books in one of the home's typically witty design touches.
Like the lounge and kitchen in the main house, the guest rooms at the Woodhouse Lodge are all decorated in designer Megan Pflug's unique take on country chic. This quaint and relaxing bedroom flips the color palette of the main room while retaining the major elements of its style. Here the white walls are accented by pops of dark colors. Modern design patterns on the headboard and throw give the space a trendy aesthetic while the wood texture of the ceilings and floors maintain the feeling of a cabin in the woods.
The living room exemplifies several of Rayman's unique design superpowers. In this one room he shows off a unique color palette in the gray, green and yellow of the walls and rug, married to a bold use of pattern on the sofa. His incorporation of artwork — especially photography — is a nice finishing touch. Holding it all together are subtle design tricks like the repetition of an animal motif in the leopard pillow and the tiger rug.
Grant's bedroom is a tribute to comics and features more of Julianne's skill with washi tape design. She created the pattern on his bedroom walls and used quirky details like the vintage sconces flanking Grant's bed and a space age overhead fixture to give this room real graphic punch.
As a designer, Tanika knows the value of a good entryway, both as a functional part of daily living and as a design feature, setting the tone for everything to come. She makes excellent use of her space on both fronts with a dark-stained wooden bench adorned with colorful pillows in dazzling geometric patterns. Complemented by the modern, artistic mirror hanging above, the bench is the perfect place to sit while putting on shoes or to pause for a moment after a long day, with an underside that doubles as storage for shoes.
Outdoor living is more fun in the thoughtfully designed backyard of HGTV Smart Home 2019. From dinner and a movie to watching a summer storm from the covered outdoor living room, this backyard brings the comforts of home into modern outdoor living.
Entertaining in a small space is always a challenge, and Mikel has been both clever and stylish in his solutions. Eschewing a fourth dining chair in favor of a bench increases the capacity at the table, while the upholstered stool can do double-duty, adding substantial seating to the living room for the conversational part of the evening.
Using composite decking in a warm hue provides a calm and subtle foundation for this year-round outdoor living space. From bright sunny days to torrential rains, this all-weather decking looks stylish and modern no matter what the forecast calls for.
A spacious double vanity sprayed in a high gloss shade of aqua and a walk-in shower with an integrated seat are two of the main components of this reimagined guest bathroom. “The upstairs bathroom before had no natural light and felt like a cave,” says project manager Dan Faires.
