Living large outdoors with HGTV Smart Home 2016

Outdoor spaces are becoming the new family room. And, Tiffany Brooks designed the perfect outdoor living area for this year's HGTV Smart Home. This home features an awesome outdoor screened in porch with retractable patio doors, automatic skylights and screens. This space has all the necessities and extras. A few of my favorite design features are....

This fabulous living wall of succulents framing colorful abstract artwork.

Upholstered furniture is slipcovered...a necessity for outdoor furniture!

Double sided stone fireplace which also serves the master bedroom.

Herringbone "faux hardwood" patterned floor

Retractable skylights let in light and can be closed to control temperature during daytime.

The best part about the HGTV Smart Home is that you can enter to win it! Check out HGTV's site for your chance to own this fabulous home located in Raleigh, NC.
