2016 HGTV Smart Home Tour

A few weeks ago, I was invited for a quick trip to gorgeous Raleigh, NC to tour the 2016 HGTV Smart Home with HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams. I have been to North Carolina before for High Point market, but never to Raleigh. It was such a beautiful, inspiring city! We got to tour the Videri Chocolate Factory, Raleigh Denim Workshop and the North Carolina Museum of Art (like, woah, with the modern grounds there!). We also ate at some of the most delicious restaurants and we even took a segue tour of the Oakwood Historic district (lots of behind the scenes are posted on my Instagram!). It was a super inspiring trip that ended with a tour of the 2016 HGTV Smart Home, and it did not disappoint!

Tiffany Brooks was the designer this year and she really nailed the color choices! Every room felt unique and different, but the colors all flowed and worked together. She mixed neutral, calming tones with bold, saturated hues from the HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams Neutral Nuance Color Collection.

The common area wall color is Sedate Gray and I loved it! It was the perfect goes-with-everything, barely there color.

The art in this dining room was so great! Large and in charge is my favorite size for artwork.

The kitchen cabinets were the prettiest color of bluey gray called Retreat. It paired so well with the brass accents in the lighting and the beautiful patterned wall tile.

How about that cute bird print on the mudroom window shades?

The reason the home is called the Smart Home is the whole place is completely tricked out with the coolest electronics and automated technology, like these skylights that opened and shut with a phone app. So cool!

I love that the bedrooms were a little more dramatic with color, but they still felt in tune with the common areas of the Smart Home.

The nursery walls were the prettiest shade of dark, moody teal called Riverway. I love how the color paired with the orange curtain fabric.

Anonymous is one of my favorite colors in the HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams paint color collection. It’s a warm, dark gray that looks especially great on cabinetry like this office nook in the Smart Home loft. It pairs so well with pink and brass!

The Master bathroom and the guest bedroom walls were both Dover White – a beautiful warm white! The tiniest pops of color on the walls looked amazing in here.

How amazing is that millwork in the Master bedroom? I love the idea of a grid-patterned feature wall. It looks especially cool with large artwork layered on top.

Such a gorgeous home, right? Believe it or not, I edited like crazy to get the number of photos here down to a reasonable amount, but if you feel like you still want to see more, here’s a full tour from HGTV. (By the way, have you entered to win yet?)

It was SUCH a treat to get to see some of the best parts of Raleigh on this trip! I can see why HGTV chose to build this year’s Smart Home in that beautiful place! A big thanks to HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams for hosting me. I’m hoping for an invite to next year’s tour!! 🙂
