A maple and iron staircase leads to the entrance of the loft area of HGTV Green Home 2011. A driftwood sawhorse table greets below a column of three colorful Yupo paper paintings. Two contemporary buffet lamps provide plenty of light in the space.
The HGTV Green Home 2011's front patio, clad in permeable pavers and buffered by conifers, offers a cozy conversation area. An outdoor gas fireplace, faced in thin-set brick, provides both warmth and ambiance. Emerald green arborvitae surround this patio, providing privacy and shade.
In the master bath at 2011's HGTV Dream Home, the basic color scheme is a range of neutrals, but a his-and-hers maple vanity, finished in a shade of pimento, draws the eye. Carpenter David Brown handcrafted a custom birch-framed mirror for the space.
A continuation of the master bedroom’s focus on quiet luxury, the master bathroom in the HGTV Green Home 2011 boasts two separate islands and an adjoining master closet. It has a spa-like feel – outfitted with slate-like porcelain and glass-mosaic tile – but makes savvy use of space.
A continuation of the master bedroom’s focus on quiet luxury, the master bathroom at HGTV Green Home 2011 boasts two separate islands and an adjoining master closet space. Vessel sinks and 6 x 5-foot mirrors framed in blue make a subtle nod to the bedroom’s ethnic-chic design style.
A silver, white and cream color palette lends a glamorous yet soothing look to the hall bathroom of HGTV Green Home 2011, which features quartz countertops and a silver-leafed mirror. A shower curtain, custom-made for the space, hangs from the top of the wall to showcase the floor-to-ceiling bathtub surround and emphasize the 9-foot ceiling.
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.
This Colonial house now has a welcoming, beach-style exterior thanks to HGTV's Curb Appeal. Chocolate brown shutters and white window casing accent the cool island-inspired green color while a long front porch gives the family the perfect place to lounge outdoors.
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.
HGTV hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created this spacious and updated take on a cottage style home, with European influences, wood accents, a deep front porch, a large dormer and lots of room inside. The exterior mixes cream colored stucco with shutters painted in sage green. Other exterior highlights include gas-lantern sconces, a pergola-style trellis over the garage doors and landscaping that includes climbing jasmine.
A palette of pineapple, charcoal gray and soft white lends a sophisticated, urban sensibility to the living room of the HGTV Green Home 2011, illuminated by a diffused fabric light designed by Tobia Scarpa. A floor lamp with marble base and stainless steel telescopic stem illuminates a seating area. Snow Bush, a framed photograph by Bruce Zander, anchors the nook and adds visual interest.
The renovation returned much of the home's classic grandeur, replacing the plain white trim with a palette of dark green and classic brick that feels more somber and historic, as seen on HGTV's Home Town.
