Tour the HGTV Smart Home 2016!

While the exterior of HGTV Smart Home 2016 has a traditional Craftsman meets cottage style look, the interior is designed for a modern family complete with updated paint colors, fabrics and fixtures! Rustic and ethnic finishes and patterns combine with contemporary lines on the furniture for a fresh, modern approach that will suit any family who moves in to the home. There are nods to Southern traditional style with a twist.

From the covered, Southern style front porch, complete with rocking chairs, the fun goes inside where neutral shades of gray and beige allows for pops of color to liven the living spaces.

Dining in Style

Large, abstract artwork stuns visitors in the foyer, dining area and main living area. The art is contrasted by a rustic barn table with large wing chairs at the ends and curvy, ladder back chairs. A black beaded chandelier with touches of amber hangs from the ceiling. The flooring that runs throughout the main level is five-inch engineered hardwood finished in a medium dark stain for continuity.

A Kitchen for Entertaining

In the kitchen, tall Shaker style cabinets, some with leaded clear glass, reach up to the ceiling and stand out against the light gray walls. Hand painted Spanish style tiles lend a southern California feel to the backsplash. White solid surface quartz countertops echo the clean style of the home. An island with the same white top has stools covered in the same fabric as the dining chairs. Stainless steel appliances include a cappuccino matching, full size wine cooler and range hood. Motion sensor faucets are a smart feature in the kitchen.

Kitchen Inspiration


Luxurious Living Space

In the family room, a contemporary sofa is accented with navy and ivory houndstooth check pillows. An abstract print rug grounds the room. A nod to Southern style is found on the fireplace which is tiled to the ceiling, looking like rustic, white-painted brick. Window doors open out to the covered screen porch out back. A huge industrial style round black iron light fixture hangs from the ceiling.

Modern Style

Inviting Outdoors

The screen porch has a tile floor that is the ground for a bold yellow sofa, white side chairs and lots of plants. Skylights in the roof allow plenty of natural light.

A Dreamy Master Suite

The main floor master suite is designed for a serene feeling. Celery green drapes, chocolate and raspberry colors as well as white and cranberry hues mixed with dark wood with brass details are the design accents in the sleeping and sitting areas.

The master bath is full of clean lines. Pebble gray tile floors and subway tiles in the shower ground the furniture style vanity in the room. A TV hidden behind the vanity mirror, a rain shower head with additional body sprayers, a stand alone tub and a warming drawer for towels give smart, modern amenities to the room.

Second Floor Living

On the second floor, a flex space has a formal, library or office feel. The walls are deep gray and the furniture has splashes of salmon, orange, pink and navy. Leather chairs provide comfy seating for watching TV or reading.

The nursery is done with deep teal walls, a wallpapered ceiling, light gray crib and an animal motif. The teen room on this floor has hints of natural floral and moss colors.

Lower Level Entertaining Spaces

On the lower level of the home is an exercise room, media room and guest suite. A dark ceiling with contrasting white walls sets the stage for viewing the curved TV in the media room.

A striped sectional sofa is flanked by two accent chairs. Ethnic patterns in oranges, yellow, gray, black and white predominate the guest suite.
