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.
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.
HGTV Green Home 2011 Living Room Fireplace and Hidden TV Cabinet
This modern living room is accented with metallic fixtures, a soft gray-and-yellow color palette and natural wood accents. The two pieces of artwork above the fireplace slide out to reveal the hidden TV.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The cozy and conversational living room from HGTV Dream Home 2011 features a green sectional sofa, shaggy rug and kitchenette for quick access to snacks and drinks. A vintage barn door serves as both a conversation and an art piece.
A warm, fall-inspired color palette of red, orange, chocolate and golden yellow brighten the living room of HGTV Dream Home 2011 during bleak winter months. Birch panels adorn the glass fireplace and complement the maple flooring.
To promote a feeling of unity between the indoor and outdoor spaces, interior designer Linda Woodrum chose a neutral, controlled palette for the HGTV Green Home 2012 living room. Furnishings, though captivating, do not distract from the view. A mix of styles and textures like the rustic wood coffee table, shag rug and contemporary wingback armchairs keeps the space feeling cozy and fresh.
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.
