A couple rounds of storm are slamming into the west coast and we are finally getting the much needed moisture we have been waiting for. Unfortunately, I was planning a trip to Tahoe when the storms hit. Sooo…during the weekend, I braved the wind, rain and snow to visit the much anticipated 2014 HGTV Dream Home. I wasn’t disappointed.
Squares and rectangles are featured in this years showcase. Now I know that they are often a background geometric in most homes… the walls, windows, doors, and much of the furniture, are in squares and rectangles…but in the new HGTV Dream Home they are very intentional and once you realize it you can’t stop seeing the rectilinear shapes everywhere.
Some are very obvious…
Added blocks on the wall serve as three dimensional wallpaper in an overall pattern,
or in feature stripes in the media room.
Here, the metal mesh serves as both decorative detail and a reminder of the square motif seen throughout the house.
Some,a little more subtle…
The gorgeous wooden front door is divided into two rectangle; notice the windows on either side, also subdivided into rectangles.
Windows and more windows – there are a plethora of windows in this home… all subdivided into squares and rectangles. Look closely, you can see even the washers behind the bolts are square!
A corrugated metal wall greets visitors when they walk into the front entry. It adds texture and as you may notice carries out the square motif.
The fireplace surround fabricated in rolled steel makes a warm rectangular statement.
Wouldn’t you love to cozy up next to the fire in one of these plush chairs?
The living room fireplace sports a statement art piece atop the fieldstone cut in rectangular shapes.
Furniture and accessories also lend a hand in repeating the theme.
Ahem… notice the simple plaid upholstery, pillow and throw subtly repeating the motif.
And wow, what an impact this pair of square asian chests make in the kitchen/dining area. Notice the rectangular latches?
Mirrors repeated the theme – here, bold and red, in the kids’ bath adjacent to their bunkroom. Notice the rectangular images within the mirror – I have no idea how this happened! Eerie!!!
In the kids’ bunk room, red checked patterned fabric leads the edge of these darling drapes. It’s also repeated in the adjacent bathroom roman shade.
The rectangles are continued in local contemporary artwork displayed throughout the home.
Notice the square motif turned on its corner in the diamond patterned pillows.
The 2014 HGTV Dream Home is only open until Valentine’s day, so you only have a few more days to tour this mountain beauty, I think it’s worth the drive. Also, don’t forget to go to their website to enter your name in the give-away…you might just be a winner in their sweepstakes.
Have a great Monday!
