Lead architect Patrick Ahearn designed the kids’ bathroom across the hallway from the kids’ bedroom for privacy and convenience. Cheerful décor continues throughout the bathroom through duplicated patterns and colors.
A closer look at the central courtyard reveals green shutters that match those along the villa's exterior. By putting these here as well, the landscape architects created cohesion between the two spaces.
“Our client had the fantastic idea to use rolling tool cabinets in her kitchen,” says architect Nick Pancheau. “We designed a simple kitchen island combining seating and storage in a single movable piece. We selected a lime-green finish to match the fritted glass lamp shades made by the client; a subtle dark-green soapstone countertop rests atop the cabinets.”
A small home office, featured on HGTV's Design Star, is staged in front of a large picture window. The bright red desk is inspired by an architect's drafting table, and adds a splash of color against mint green walls. A classic desk lamp and molded armchair complete the look.
Natural light illuminates this open concept coastal living room with a sage green vaulted ceiling and white exposed beams. Circular wood chandeliers hang above the spacious living room, which is complete with gray sofas and a pair of armchairs.
Walnut floors and white walls create a clean, attractive background for the open design. Blue and green chairs with paisley throw pillows draw the eye and add fun color to this contemporary sitting space. A pink ottoman brings an additional pop of color.
Neutral stone flooring stretches from the french doors of the home, down a small set of stairs and to an outdoor living room space surrounded by vibrant, lush greenery. Neutral cushions on all of the seating compliment the light beige floor tile and neutral home exterior.
For additional ambiance, the landscape architects outfitted the garden with an accent wall that doubles as a cool, cascading water feature. Lush green plants all around further the sense of a hidden oasis.
Lacquered wall panels add a luxurious feel to this modern master bedroom. The upholstered leather headboard adds a masculine touch, while green bedding and a white nightstand add neutral tones that create a calm, restful feeling.
A 64-inch-tall Doggie Green Home mirrors the main home in both exterior cladding and crimped metal roofing. The structure was designed by the HGTV Green Home 2012 architect and constructed locally. A set of painted cedar stairs, crafted by carpenter David Brown, provide a rustic finishing touch.
Although contemporary in aesthetic, layering of texture adds warmth to the HGTV Green Home 2012 master bathroom. The vision of architect Steve Kemp, square shapes — tile, mirrors and sliver windows — find expression in the space.
