A modern staircase invites traffic to flow from the first to second floor in the entryway of HGTV Green Home 2011. An oversized bureau at the base of the stairs accommodates storage of outerwear or mail.
This multi-purpose "do room" in HGTV Green Home 2011 includes a casual-chic seating area with two slipper chairs, upholstered in classic houndstooth print. They sit atop a carpet-square rug and a Grecian key fabric throw pillows rests on each chair. A natural wood lamp with iron stud accents and linen shade provides additional light on overcast days. A barn door, constructed of beetle-kill pine wood, separates the room from the first floor.
In keeping with this home’s prairie style, plants and shrubs that complement the vertical design were chosen to landscape the front of this home. Large brown planters hold tall tall trees leading up to the front door.
Contemporary-style sofas, upholstered in durable Sunbrella fabric, feature aluminum frames and synthetic wicker bases — both recyclable. Two cube-shaped, industrial-style coffee tables were handcrafted from sustainable wood by carpenter David Brown. The yellow chairs provide a nice contrast against the black and white patterned pillows and add pops of color against the brick floor and accent landscaping wall.
A bed of local river stone serves as both a decorative border to the patio and a drainage system that keeps water from the home's foundation in front of the balcony attached to the master bedroom at the HGTV Dream Home 2011.
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.
A craft cubicle features a retractable 3 x 3-foot tabletop and 3 x 3-foot mobile island topped with stainless steel formica. A cork bulletin board provides space to tack notes; a brushed-nickel task lamp twists, pivots and bends to spotlight projects.
Red Master Bedroom with Dog Bed at HGTV Dream Home 2011
In the master bedroom at the 2011 edition of the HGTV Dream Home, black furnishings and menswear fabrics pop against walls painted in a vibrant cranberry shade. The "Doggie Dream Home," a miniature replica of the actual HGTV Dream Home constructed by carpenter David Brown, features space for two small dogs.
