Why the 2020 HGTV Smart Home is the Best Yet

HGTV’s 2020 Smart Home can be found in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and we cannot get enough of the incredible craftsmanship and detail put into it.  The blend of industrial and classic designs by HGTV star and Vishion Design Award judge, Tiffany Brooks, celebrates Pittsburgh’s rich, colorful history.  Let’s dive into this visionary masterpiece and why this is our favorite interior design of any HGTV smart home.

The Perfect Pittsburgh Location

HGTV Smart Home

Walking into the HGTV 2020 Smart Home is a breathtaking moment filled with many different color combinations throughout each room. Iron and metal accents within the home’s interior design give a nod to its location in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Located in southwestern Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh is known as “the Steel City” for its more than 300 steel-related businesses and as the “City of Bridges” for its 446 bridges.

Transitional Spaces

Once inside, the main entrance is in a central location with the foyer connecting the great room, the kitchen, and the dining room. The gorgeous luxury vinyl and 100% waterproof grey vinyl flooring add the perfect touch of brightness to the room and durability to withstand those harsh Pittsburgh winters.

Study / Sitting Area

Bring On The Drama

Walking into the study, we notice the hues of purple on the wall with a punch of color from artwork hung around them.

 “I just feel like I elevated the vibe of this room.  I didn’t want to just create this boring office.  I wanted something that was a little bit more stylish and dressier and kind of designed-up”, says designer Tiffany Brooks via HGTV.

The jet black in the statement chandelier combined with the black accents in the rug gives this room a chic, art deco vibe that is full of glamour.

The Kitchen

A Kitchen Of Dreams

From the off-white cabinets, ivory floors, and textured backsplash – we can’t get enough of this kitchen.  The variety of shapes encapsulated us and is a feast to the eye.  The mix of greys, whites, blacks, and browns blend together with such ease.  According to the HGTV website, Tiffany Brooks wanted to keep this space chic and inviting. We think she executed it perfectly.

Dining Room

Bold and Botanical

There is a flawless amount of greenery alongside the drapes and velvet chairs in this bold and botanical dining room.

“I had a lot of fun with the Sherwin-Williams Global Spice Color collection, and you’ll see bold items and bold moments of that throughout the house,” says Tiffany Brooks via HGTV.

Each element and pattern in this room give the right amount of boldness and drama and serenity without feeling too overpowering.  Green adds a slight sense of serenity and tranquility as well. Dining room goals?  I think so!

Living Room

Tranquility At Its Finest

The main living area of the HGTV 2020 Smart Home brings in soothing and calming tones of white and greys that are full of tranquility. There is so much relaxing to be done here, especially while watching TV.  TV placement in this room is key, and there are many tips to achieve this.

“First of all, you don’t want to buy a TV that is too big for a small room.  If you have a massive room, usually hang the TV about 60 inches from the bottom.  If you’re primarily sitting around it, you want to go a little bit lower – hit that 42-inch mark.  And finally, I like to finish this off to add a frame around it or placing it on a swivel,” says Tiffany Brooks via HGTV.

Master Bedroom Suite

The Bedroom

Luxe Life

The master suite includes loads of details that give us a very relaxing feel.  The upholstered pinstripe headboard is a beauty and soothing to the eye.  Hollywood regal vibes are all throughout this bedroom and we especially love the mix of subtle tones throughout in the draperies.

“Add a floor to ceiling drapery to create somewhat of a false wall.  It gives me the necessary privacy and can add that touch of luxury you need.” says Tiffany Brooks via HGTV

Master Bathroom

The master bathroom…. too chic for words.  The huge soaking tub, the fabulously patterned shower, and the classic cabinets all combine to provide a feminine-modern feel that adds up to perfection.  The mix of whites, blacks, greys, and the pop of yellow all come together beautifully.  These colors give the bathroom such a relaxing and comforting atmosphere to it.  We could stay in this bathroom the entire day and never want to leave!

Family Living Space

Fashionable Family Time

The combination of bold green walls with the lined rugs and pops of dimension from the pillows and large print creates such a fun game room.  This is a room where families could spend all night together and never get tired of.

“This whole area I am most proud of because it feels like a true-family fun center,” says Tiffany Brooks via HGTV.

A Destination Deck

Exterior Deck

This comfy and sleek seating area of the upstairs deck provides the best views for those cozy days and nights.  The mixed patterns and colors of the pillows add a fun element to the cream upholstery.  The added plants around it bring peaceful elements to this deck as well.  We want to spend a crisp, cool night, or a sunny, spring day in this little piece of heaven.
