An Eclectic Duo

A pair of eccentric paintings in the dining room combine fine detail with wallpaper-like backdrops for an interesting take on the classic portrait.

Divine Inspiration

A black-and-white painting of a landscape and church in the entry sets the tone for the design inspiration of HGTV Smart Home 2019.

Freeform Abstract

A mix of mustard, lavender, black and blue combine for a freeform, flowing abstract painting in the guest bedroom that highlights the angular design of the industrial lighting.

Frivolous Feline

“One of my favorite pieces in here is the portrait of a tiger dressed in a suit, which I thought was absolutely hilarious,” said designer Tiffany Brooks of this whimsical painting in the kid’s bedroom. Dark tones and unexpected elements in the painting mimic the eclectic design found throughout the home.

Reel to Reel

An image of a movie reel becomes the focal point on the wall of the in-home movie theater in HGTV Smart Home 2019.

Monochromatic Gallery

A mix of black-and-white photographs leaning on a wall shelf are a modern take on the classic gallery-wall style of hanging artwork. Images are of local scenes of Dallas, Texas, and give a sense of place to this entry from the moment you enter the home.

Light and Bright Abstracts

Modern abstract paintings in a wash of blues, yellows and neutral tones play off the colors found in abstract paintings throughout the home and pop against the black washed-wood plank wall in the master bedroom.

Subtly Surreal

An abstract painting showing a couple with fish and a house cat adds an unexpected surreal moment to this corner of the warm-toned playroom.

Black-and-White Stunner

Simple abstract forms create stark contrast against this painting's white backdrop.

Tabletop Treasure

A framed black-and-white piece is highlighted in this tabletop standing frame mixed with modern black accessories.

Modern Contrast

Simple abstract forms in yellow, black and blue pop against the painting's white backdrop. Dark-toned walls frame the painting and give a dramatic contrast to the bright and simple tones found in the artwork.

Pop of Color

Pops of teal in this abstract painting add life and color to this neutral space without overwhelming the calm feeling captured by the mix of gray and white tones.

Turning Heads

A group of modern portraits feel cohesive when hung together in gallery framing on the leather-upholstered chimney above the living room fireplace. Grouping similar pieces of artwork together can create a visual statement or focal point in any room.

Fresh and Feminine

Soft, feminine tones of pink and orange feel modern and fresh against stark black lines in this modern painting found in the guest bedroom.

Outdoor Abstract

A modern, abstract black-and-white painting brings the finished feel of an indoor space to this outdoor patio living area. The covered patio shields the artwork from elements while the home’s brick exterior adds texture behind the contemporary painting.

Mechanical Masterpiece

Detailed train plans printed on blue and red canvas provide an artistic focal point above the storage area in the golf simulator area of the garage. Using artwork that echoes the room’s masculine sensibility weaves the modern aesthetic of the home into the mechanical nature of the garage space.

Black-and-White Balance

Matching black-and-white ottomans play off the black and white tones found in this painting of a historic home. Mixing modern home design elements with softer, abstract-inspired artwork maintains a balance throughout the house of artful details and formal elegance.
