The HGTV Dream Home 2015 great room is characterized by ample seating with clean lines and a warm, relaxing color palette. “We didn’t want to have so much furniture it felt overwhelmingly furnished,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “That was the design decision – to make sure that we could accommodate people without making it jumbled.”
Soft, neutral tones are spiced up with reds and oranges to give this traditional living room a warm glow. The circular arrangement of seating and plush materials invite people to sit and converse. Designer tip: Neutral tones are easily livened with splashes of color. Pillow covers can be changed throughout the year to add new colors and textures to a room.
