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.
The niche between the two bookshelves is the perfect spot for the crib; in later years, a headboard will tuck neatly up against the wall. The gold polka dots on the back wall are brought out by the spherical gold pendants in the center of the room.
Black-painted walls give this nook a cozy vibe while complementing the narrow rustic bar waiting to welcome guests. Wall shelves offer convenient storage, while a collection of vintage mirrors visually enlarges the space.

Soft black cabinets contrast against gray countertops in this sophisticated kitchen bar area. Mirrored tiles add a glamorous touch as the backsplash, while a mini refrigerator and smart shelving provide storage for wine bottles and essential glassware.
This adorable nursery feels alive and oh-so-fun with lots of bold, graphic prints and personality-filled accents like the rug and the zebra above the crib. The floor space is kept open thanks to two built-in bookshelves, and a large window all along one wall fills the room with light.
Black walls give dramatic dimension in this dining room, especially when paired with the large vividly colored painting. To counter them, the ceiling and the rest of the decor is kept simple and subtle.
Powder Room Features Fish Art & Wall of Antique Doorknobs
A mix of antique and contemporary decor creates interest in this powder room. A gallery wall of antique doorknobs makes quite the statement beside the toilet, while above the toilet, swimming fishes in a simple black frame bring a calming vibe to the transitional design.
This view from the guest bathroom to the adjoining guest bedroom shows how one space transitions to the other. Three smart thermostats (one on each floor) that can be remotely operated and monitored help maintain desired temperatures and control energy bills.

Winter Bedroom Sheepskin Rug and Linens in Black Bedroom
Textile designer, Khristian A. Howell, says, "Put your feet first. A dramatic and easy way to change things up in a room is by bringing in a great rug. Sheepskin rugs are so wonderful for the winter months. They feel wonderful under foot, and bring lots of warmth into the room, while keeping a light airy feeling."
