Relax in Style

Sit back and relax in the inviting great room, with a soaring ceiling trimmed out with custom wood beams that pop against the charcoal-gray walls with soft white trim in this space with both comfort and style.

Cozy Seating

The great room’s cozy custom emerald-green velvet sofa adds rich color to the space, and coordinates with the emerald-green ceramic tiles used for the kitchen’s focal-point backsplash.

Tables With Texture

A pair of shell-white drum tables with a vertical fluted design placed beside the comfortable sofa offer storage space for a tapered modern table lamp and books to read by the fire on a chilly night.

Colorful Rug

A colorful area rug filled with grays, greens, a touch of purple and mustard yellow sits underneath the great room’s seating area, adding a bit of softness and helping to define the space.

Coffee-Table Styling

A plant that adds a bit of greenery and Old World-style candles decorate the top of the great room’s modern coffee table.

Personalized Lighting

The great room at HGTV Smart Home 2019, along with the entry, kitchen, media room and patio, all include smart lighting. These lights can be controlled from a smartphone or tablet via an app from any location to create just the right ambiance for different occasions.

Flexible Space

The great room offers the choice of spending a cozy night by the direct-vent fireplace with porcelain-tile surround and custom black box mantel or watching the smart TV located just off to the left side of the fireplace.

Enjoy Thrilling Entertainment

The flat-screen 65-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV with HDR offers enhanced depth, textures and natural colors for exceptionally realistic pictures and the ultimate viewing experience.

Focal-Point Fireplace

The commanding 18-foot-tall fireplace with a chimney portion wrapped in chestnut leather sits center stage in the great room seating area. A selection of framed modern silhouette art on the chimney adds a nice decorative touch.

Modern Style

The fireplace includes a custom black box mantel with clean, modern lines that helps protect the chestnut leather from heat generated by the fire.


Designer Tiffany Brooks found a very old cathedral light fixture that she had replicated locally in Dallas. The showstopping fixture now hangs over the great room seating area to offer stylish illumination and serve as a conversation-starter.

Commanding Presence

The impressive light fixture measures 42 inches wide and adds the perfect design detail for this home with smart and sophisticated style.

Let the Light In

Glass double doors off the great room seating area filter natural light from the home’s efficient and stylish office with large windows and solar-powered smart skylights.

Seating and Storage

A pair of smaller cube ottomans covered in a grid-pattern fabric sit under a shell-white curved-top console table just off the great room’s seating area. Large 48 x 48 custom art by artist Celery Jones hangs above and brings the scenic Texas landscape inside.

Open Floor Plan

This view from the great room shows the front door and entry of the home straight ahead, with the open kitchen located just to the right.

Modern Seating

A pair of metal accent chairs with a woven geometric gray fabric, satin brass finish and loose back have clean and simple modern lines.

All Flows Together

This view looking into the great room from the kitchen’s breakfast area shows how the design and layout of HGTV Smart Home 2019 encourages great flow and coordination between spaces.

Curved Lines

This view from the great room looking toward the home’s entry and front door highlights the arched opening that mirrors the curved lines used for other parts of the home, including the exterior.

Impressive View

Visitors to the home enjoy this impressive view when they enter and look toward the great room and large single-hung vinyl windows with energy-efficient insulating glass. The arch over the windows coordinates with the arched opening that separates the entry and great room.

Strong Connection

The great room includes a light-toned 7-inch white oak hardwood floor that creates a neutral backdrop and strong connection with the other spaces in the home.

Multipurpose Space

Made for relaxing, watching TV or entertaining guests, the great room functions as a multipurpose space with a wonderful central location in this smart home. “You’re just steps from the master bedroom, the office, the kitchen and media room, and also the back patio,” says project manager Scott Branscom. “It’s all right there.”
