HGTV Dream Home 2011's mountain-lodge style extends to the two-car garage. The exterior showcases an impressive gable end complete with eco-friendly poplar bark siding and hemlock timbers, cut and milled locally.
This rustic-meets-modern cottage kitchen incorporates the old with the new. The suspended kitchen island, complete with Carrara marble and an apron sink, provides a stark contrast to the alder wood cabinets and reclaimed hemlock counter tops.
This long hallway is a warm welcome to the master bedroom ahead and features three closets for extra storage. The louvered pine doors add the the charm of the pine shiplap walls and reclaimed hemlock wood floors that give it that genuine cottage feel.
The front door, crafted from hemlock planks reclaimed from the interior of a 150-year-old home, complements the natural pine flooring and yellow birch panel ceiling in the HGTV Dream Home 2011. A white pendant light illuminates the space while black wood furniture and large accessories anchor the room. A gray floral patterned throw rug greets visitors to the home.
The kitchen appliances disappear into this custom art wall, which adds vibrant color and energy to the non-traditional kitchen. The wall is clad in reclaimed barn wood, and artist Rob Stenberg painted the design on the panels. Touch-latch cabinetry keeps the wall looking more like an art installation than kitchen cabinetry. A custom hemlock block island looks time worn and was fabricated by the homeowner.
Dress up spent summer and fall container gardens with boughs of fresh evergreens for a colorful winter display. Greens like spruce, fir, mountain hemlock and Virginia pine retain color and needles to provide a long winter display. Treat cut greenery with an anti-transpirant to help stems retain moisture. Use bunched ornamental grass stems or bundled branches to add a strong vertical element to designs.
