A large-scale, beaded wood chandelier by Regina Andrew draws the eye to the wide windows in this lovely breakfast space, emphasizing the serene outdoor view. Framed by white curtains, the large window allows lots of natural light to fill the space. A natural fiber rug anchors the Restoration Hardware furniture and accentuates the room’s casual vibe.
The "treehouse feel" of the HGTV Dream Home 2011 is especially evident in this room with its abundance of wood and autumn-inspired colors. Floor-to-ceiling windows and maple flooring lend an air of the outdoors, while modern furniture and a steel wall sculpture make it a comfortable and lively space for entertaining.
Plant, materials and decor in this space helps to create the illusion of a rainforest. Tropical foliage was planted to give the space an overgrown, jungle feeling. The wicker furniture and raw wood table make occupants feel as if they have set up camp in the middle of this rainforest oasis, while the lanterns and large pots give the feeling of a jungle adventure. All these details combine to create an outdoor oasis that is perfect for relaxing or entertaining.
The backyard to this home is an oasis in and of itself. The foliage in this outdoor space was planted to create the illusion of a lush rainforest, and the furniture is build from materials and textures that help create that ambiance. Canvas and wicker combine to make the space feel casual and inviting, while wood and stone tile bring warmth and texture to the space. All of these elements combine to create an ode to the dense jungle that inspired this design.
This bedroom brings the outdoors inside. A chandelier over the bed is made from painted antlers, and the furniture is rough-hewn. Tan, white, and green plaids in the bed linens and window treatment lend to the rustic feel of the space. A rustic wood chair and coffee table offer the perfect sitting area for relaxing and enjoying a good book. Houseplants lend to the natural element while a green glass bedside lamp helps illuminate the space and tie in the color scheme. A natural jute throw rug anchors the entire area.
The family wanted a unique space for outdoor entertaining, so designers created a space that would function as an extension of the home's interior. A wood paneled ceiling and dark, wicker furniture bring a warm contrast to the neutral space, while the space's high arches let in plenty of natural light. In order to control the natural light during the day and keep bugs out at night, heavy curtains were hung so that the homeowners would be able to control the atmosphere of their space. To help the space remain usable during cooler weather, a fireplace was added to give off warmth when needed.
