I was giddy to be invited to tour the new HGTV Smart Home here in Nashville and it was a great day out! Looking through my photos, I wish I had been able to get more snaps, but there was always someone else in the room, and as much as we tried to get out of each other’s shots, I found myself focusing on details I was drawn to, rather than trying to get the whole room shot….BUT… HGTV took care of that on their site! To see the whole gallery of photos go HERE.

What makes it a Smart Home?  “HGTV’s Smart Home boasts the latest in home technology coupled with eco-friendly features and energy-efficient design. Located in the Duncanwood Reserve neighborhood, this English cottage-style residence consists of three bedrooms and four and a half baths and features technology to connect the home’s appliances and devices, giving the homeowner better control over energy use, security, interior climate and lighting.” More details on the technology can be found HERE.

It also has a huge TV in the dining room, which I found odd, but I guess that’s what all the cool kids are doing!?

The home is designed by P. Shea Design, built by Carbine and Associates and the interior design is by Linda Woodrum of TS Hudson Interiors. The HGTV House Planner for both Smart Homes and Dream Homes is Jack Thomasson.

I think all of us took this EXACT same shot…what a cute laundry/dog area! Otto would dig this.

I like the drama the black tile gives to the upstairs bath.

My favorite room was the upstairs den.  Throughout the house, there are touches of Sherwin Williams Indigo Batik, but this room went all in, and I LOVED it.

One of my favorite pieces of furniture was this shagreen chest being used as a bedside table.

My favorite piece of art was James Richardson’s “Twin Giants” from York Art.

I love getting to tour houses of ANY kind, from estate sales to open houses, so this was a much needed treat! Thanks for having me!

BTW, in case you didn’t know, you can enter to WIN this home beginning April 15! Details are HERE.

    I love your photos, thanks for sharing, I hope you took more and will publish those at a future date! More text would be appreciated too. I also love the art Linda and Jack chose for throughout the home. And what is shagreen? i’ll have to look that one up. Thanks again, minitoni on the blogs

    Another question, is the dining room table expandable with leaves? Did you find that out? many people are asking this question on the blog. Thanks

      I just found out the dining room table does NOT expand with a leaf. The room is not that big, so it would probably only accommodate a small leaf if there had been one.

        Thanks for the answer. Some of the Bloggers on the Smart Home Blog looked it up and seem to think that there is one leaf expanding the table to seat six. I think they found the table on the Bassett home furniture site but I’m not sure.

          Hmm…Well, I asked the PR firm that was running the event and they asked the design assistant who was on hand, so I am not sure who is right or wrong!
