Good morning, bloggers!
I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season. Just remember that if you need to sneak away and de-stress, HGTV.com is here to keep you busy.
Back to HGTV Dream Home chat. Many of you thought to put a flat-screen TV in the living room, but Jack and Linda took care of it for you. You can barely see it hidden away in the bookcase. Check out the living room photo gallery for more details.
Lovelykitty and others have asked me why I thought Linda and Jack decided to place artwork rather than a TV over the fireplace in the family room. The family room is the first room you see when you enter the HGTV Dream Home. You need a dramatic view when you enter through the front door, and the fireplace-artwork combo provides that. MicheleC had suggested the “Divine Design” solution of concealing the TV behind artwork. However, my true feeling is that we would all have extremely sore necks if the TV were placed above the fireplace. The TV would be much too high to really enjoy, especially given how much we all watch HGTV!
Enjoy the HGTV Dream Home special on January 1st. I can’t wait to read all of your reactions on the blog. And to Ingrid and Bobo, I look forward to seeing you after the new year!
Your Super Fan,
