The great room at the 2010 HGTV Dream Home features a bank of 12-foot-tall windows providing a stunning view of the surrounding desert landscape. Furnishings are toned down to keep focus on the glorious scenery, but interesting textures and prints, including houndstooth, Greek key and cow-hide, add interest in a space dominated by neutral fabrics and surfaces.
The long, large dining table is a beautiful fit to the spacious, open style of the room. The softer look of the wood finish blends with the neutral tones used throughout the design. The dining chairs feature a light neutral upholstery with a nailhead trim. A knit runner adds a homey, textural element while a uniquely shaped chandelier finishes the farmhouse style look.
Instead of going bold with color, visual interest is added to this living room via beautiful details such as the carved trim of the coffee table and the different colored wood used in the entertainment center.
A zebra print bench in front of the fireplace is a funky, eye-catching accent piece in this neutral living room. The white couch facing the TV defines the space. Pops of turquoise in the wallpaper, armchair and pillows add fun touches of color.
A sleek fireplace with a geometric screen and a mirror over the mantel are modern touches in this living room. Metallic consoles on either side of the fireplace are both stylish and functional, with benches tucked away underneath. The window-filled room also has draperies, upholstered couches, and a black chandelier and table lamps.
Muted shades of gray-blue paired with a chocolate brown mohair sofa make for a lush and glamorous living room that's still comfy and cozy enough to hang out in every day. Silver-toned drapery, white silk sheers and neutral walls provide a soothing backdrop.

This living room has floor-to-ceiling windows for abundant natural light as well as great views, and it opens to an outdoor entertaining area. The room features a vaulted ceiling with exposed wooden beams and recessed lighting, and the furnishings have a somewhat Southwestern flavor.
In case you need a reminder, the purpose in this living space is to RELAX! Of note: The letters in the word are made from maps, a unique take on the design element. A cheery lamp and throw blanket add touches of color to the room.
To add energy and visual interest to its neutral palette, this living room makes compelling use of different shapes. A orb-like chandelier hovers above the blocky coffee table. On the mantel, a collection of vases shows off graceful curves.
