2013 HGTV Smart Home : Living Room Pictures

About the Living Room: 
“I didn’t want to just go turquoise blue, turquoise blue, turquoise blue,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum, who veered from the beachy blue color palette when designing the home’s largest gathering and party space. A happy collection of solid colors and modern and Moroccan prints celebrates vintage Florida style, while high-tech features make a singularly modern statement.



What Linda describes as a “very evolutionary room” began with a charcoal chaise positioned in front of telescoping glass doors. The low profile of furnishings keeps views from the deck in and the living room out unobstructed.


A tufted nylon rug in a Moroccan print continues a focus on Hollywood regency style. Layered with animal and Floridian prints, plus solid colors, the room pops. “All these bold patterns keep the room up to date and modern,” says Linda.


Crafted with industrial grade components, the aerodynamically inspired ceiling fan features a wall unit that controls speed. The energy efficient fan circulates warm air in the winter and has the potential to lower summer indoor air temperature by 8 to 16° F.


“The first thing we saw was that bench it’s so contemporary,” says Linda. “And that helps keep that room in a wonderful place. It was just the perfect piece.”


Semi sheer linen drapes may be drawn to create a wall of privacy between the dining and living rooms.


Continuing a focus on sustainable, locally sourced materials, a wall of pickled pecky cypress houses three flat screen TVs, programmable via the home’s smart tablets.


“The living room was all about playing around with fabrics and figuring out what works,” says Linda. “There’s a lot of versatility in that room. You could remove those pillows and go with all turquoise blue.”


Tabletop accessories, including nature photography books, resin cast coral sculptures and clear glass desk accessories draw the eye without dominating the overall design scheme.


Cast resin clamshell sconces by artist Karen Robertson flank the entrance to the home’s outdoor dining area and grilling station. Stripes of color frame the view and draw eyes up to the vaulted ceiling.


A focus on Floridian prints that evoke circa 1950s Copacabana style and bright citrus hues dominate the design scheme.


A smart tablet enables the homeowner to control TV covers, select TV stations and whole-house audio, monitor security camera activity, and control home security within the comfort of the living room.


Telescoping glass doors open to reveal outdoor living areas, which expand the living room’s square footage during warm weather months.


Handcrafted pedestals frame the view from the living area to the dining room. Topped with cast stone urns and greenery, they reference Hollywood regency style and its focus on ornamentation.
