The new HGTV dream home is nestled in a natural habitat of regional flora, sitting in a wide open space with priceless views. The home blends into its setting well with a nature-based color palette, and appears to be waiting for visitors to come in and relax. The decor is lovely and calming, designed for the purpose of welcoming and providing comfort to all who enter. The location of the home in Park City, Utah shows off the western skyline at sunset and has plenty of room for enjoying the outdoors.
The amenities of the house and the land lend themselves to hours of entertainment for families and guests. There is a room for everything and then some. The outdoor living spaces could be used from morning to night and there is no shortage of lounging space indoors. The master bedroom has its own sitting room that opens to the outdoors so it can be used year round. Out back, the in-ground hot tub is sunken into the deck, which is roomy enough for cushioned benches to go around one side and chairs on another.
A second fresh-air space is perfect for an evening drink and conversation by the fireplace, set in Utah limestone. The fireplace area and hot tub space are connected by a boardwalk style deck in a soft gray and there is a generous amount of room for seating by the fireplace as well. The hills in the distance create a scenic backdrop for unwinding and transitioning into nighttime. All of this outdoor seating has cushions for long intervals of gazing and sipping. The chairs and tables in the outside living room and these other two locales are made of wrought iron, with smooth, simple lines and trim legs. They look tough enough to be outside but not rugged and bulky.
This clean look goes well with the iron-framed glass top tables and allows as much light in as possible. The furniture has a sophisticated, but unstuffy, style and could easily fill in for extra seating indoors, especially since the cushions are a neutral, light, brownish gray. There are other wrought iron accents inside the home that fit into the decor seamlessly. Lamps and overhead lights are black wrought iron with bone-white shades. One overhead box lamp, in the changing room, was inside a black wrought iron square of thin poles, and was truly surprising, in a good way. It complemented the wrought iron table lamp in the same room.
A pair of candelabra sconces of black and tan leaves on the walls of the master bedroom are striking, but give a mellow feel to the room. The spare lines of the notable wrought iron chandelier in the master bath has small linen shades and softens the room in which there are several hard surfaces. The sconce lights on either side of the mirror in another bath are curved black wrought iron with muted white shades to give continuity to the feel of the design.
The wrought iron pieces in this year’s featured home would fit into several types of decor, and can be found at Timeless Wrought Iron website. The furniture and lamps used in the dream house are timeless in the functional but eye-catching design of clean, straight lines and square-shaped support bars. Paired with light colored fabrics, the effect is pleasing but with a little snap. They add a fresh, crisp aspect to the overall look of this beautiful, tastefully done family dwelling.
An important point in favor of using wrought iron is its ability to join any color scheme and give it stability and balance. Wood-stained tables with black, wrought iron frameworks are attractive focal points in any room and set off the upholstered pieces surrounding them. The Timeless Wrought Iron website has pictures of various wrought iron pieces that may give a home decorator quite a few good ideas for how to take advantage of this durable and appealing, earth-born metal.
