To promote a feeling of unity between the indoor and outdoor spaces, interior designer Linda Woodrum chose a neutral, controlled palette for the HGTV Green Home 2012 living room. Furnishings, though captivating, do not distract from the view. A mix of styles and textures like the rustic wood coffee table, shag rug and contemporary wingback armchairs keeps the space feeling cozy and fresh.
A 59-inch flat-screen TV, mounted above the fireplace, provides entertainment throughout the year in this four-season room. Black wicker chairs provide a place to get warm by the fire. Semi-sheer grommet drapes may be drawn for privacy.
A decorative arbor, constructed of cedar beams and galvanized metal pipes, filters sunlight and creates interesting shadow details. The architectural element echoes the design of railing details in the front yard.
A hand-knotted rug, inspired by the design of old garden gates and damask prints, anchors the master bedroom's private sitting room and pairs well with the room's diverse collection of upholstery fabrics.
This unique half bathroom from the HGTV Green Home 2012 is stylish and fun. Floor to ceiling green mosaic tile is complemented with dark wood floors and a rustic modern vanity. The three windows add character and natural light.
Conveniently located near the kids' bedroom and the craft area, this laundry room from HGTV Green Home 2012, offers both a front-loading Energy Star-rated steam washer and a dryer. Playful word signs grace the walls of the space, reinforcing the home's green theme.
A cozy corner is reserved for the family pet, with a pet bed, stainless steel feeding bowls and toys carving out the dedicated space. Black wood cabinetry offers ample storage and work space and compliments the mint green wall of the space. A doggie rack stores clothes and leashes efficiently while a metal storage bin keeps toys stowed in one neat place.
A magical escape for pint-sized family members, the third-floor kids’ bedroom at HGTV Green Home 2012 is designed to stand up to wear and tear. Twin beds fashioned from repurposed pieces of pine, poplar and plywood feature black and white headboards upholstered in durable acrylic fabric. Accounting for guests' every need, green quilts are folded at the edge of each bed, should evenings take a chilly turn.
Black and white zigzag headboards are an eye-catching touch in the HGTV Smart Home 2012 kids' bedroom. Green coverlets and gooseneck lamps add pops of fresh color while a wooden ladder and bucket pulley system keep the loft area stocked with supplies.
