The walnut vanity is substantial and striking and features eight drawers for ample storage space, plus a white basin sink. Slate floors add subtle tones of cool, forest green to the room.
There are several features in this space that make the stylish, transitional design a bit more functional and luxurious. For example, the floor is comprised of a multi-color, claved slate that forms a pattern and is heated for comfort and warmth, creating a sunroom that is elegant and cozy, no matter the season.

Upon entering the foyer of the 2014 HGTV Dream Home, slate tile is underfoot and stately urn pendant lights are overhead. The wide space is illuminated by a row of windows and sliding doors that open to the courtyard patio.
To create a more open space, Chip and Joanna, hosts of Fixer Upper on HGTV, removed the wall that separated the breakfast nook from the sitting room.

A large box in shape and appearance, the foyer is designed to connect the home's public and private wings. The foyer's far wall is framed out with painted pine trim. Inside each 34-inch square lies a panel of corrugated steel, a rustic building material that finds a new sleek, sophisticated interior application.
