An earthy color palette punctuates the casual dining space, where two sliding doors lead out to a motor court and offer views of the Western skyline. Floor-to-ceiling drapery softens the space acoustically and diffuses midday sun.
Texture and color keep the eye roaming in the HGTV Dream Home 2010 home office, where a dining table doubles as a work-station. A wall of industrial-style étagères provide for both art display and storage. Reclaimed teak-wood sculptures placed atop lacquered display pedestals connect the room to outdoor spaces.
The 2010 HGTV Dream Home master closet is perfect for the clothes horse. With dedicated shoe storage, plenty of room for linens, hanging racks, shelves and drawers everywhere, this closet is a storage dream.
Hardscaped pillars stand guard at the entrance to HGTV Dream Home 2010. The front walk is protected by a metal canopy that serves as a foil against the stucco and creates shadows and visual interest, especially at sunset.
The great room at the 2010 HGTV Dream Home features a bank of 12-foot-tall windows providing a stunning view of the surrounding desert landscape. Furnishings are toned down to keep focus on the glorious scenery, but interesting textures and prints, including houndstooth, Greek key and cow-hide, add interest in a space dominated by neutral fabrics and surfaces.
A touch of Hollywood glamour in the home theater at the 2010 HGTV Dream Home transforms a traditional entertainment room into a luxe space for relaxing and movie watching. Frosted glass doors attached to barn door hardware provide privacy during show times. Tripod-mounted steel lamps, outfitted with a milk glass diffuser, can be positioned as needed and provide soft, white illumination.
These sculptural lamps are crafted of rice paper and aspen branches. They sit on a buffet between the home's kitchen and great room. Designer Linda Woodrum says, "We originally had lamps on that table and I thought, 'My gosh, let’s do something a little more fun.' They suited that space."
