The HGTV Dream Home 2016 Master Bath Is a Masterpiece

HGTV Dream Home 2016 is packed full of eye candy, but the sweetest piece of all may be the master bathroom. The magic is in the details, according to interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, who designed the home’s interior to complement its tropical surroundings on Florida’s Merritt Island. Here are details you can copy in your own home.

First things first: the entryway, where the mood is established instantly with a custom piece of art. “Cece, my art director, made this incredible four-foot-by-four-foot watercolor art which combines all different shades of teal and white,” Brian says. “And it kind of leads your eye into the room.”

Get Inspired to Throw a Dance Party

HGTV Dream Home 2016

Bose® SoundTouch® 30 Series III wireless music system

I don’t know about you, but I love a good dance party… by myself at home. My dance moves vary depending on my mood and music, but most often I pull out the running man and on occasion I’ll channel my inner Beyonce. It’s all about letting loose, getting a little cardio, and most importantly having fun.

My husband will vouch that my playlist is all over the place, just like my sweet dance moves. He goes for the oldies and slow jams, while I turn up the volume on anything that has a fast beat and catchy chorus. We love any excuse to play music and get the party started in our house.

Wiring your house for music can be a process, having to strategically place speakers throughout and wire them to a central system. Today’s wireless options make it a breeze to enjoy music in any space.

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Kitchen and Bath

Trying to clean up your act in 2016? Try some of the design tricks we used in HGTV Dream Home 2016 to make your kitchen and bath feel neater, brighter and more organized.

In the master bath, for example, storing toiletries in glass jars on the countertops keeps loose items tidy and easy to find. White cotton balls, swabs, and bath salts look especially crisp and clean stored this way. And if you’re in the market for a remodel, you can’t beat a white penny tile backsplash for brightening the room.

This chrome faucet from the Tesla® collection can be turned on and off with just a tap when hands are full—or covered in, say, garden dirt or finger paint. Translation: less cleanup.
