At the 2012 HGTV Dream Home, the finished landscaping, inspired by indigenous meadow grasses, caps the exterior design of this exquisite modern rustic ranch home. The beautiful 4000-square-foot home, located in Park City, Utah, was designed to resemble a family compound expanded over time.
HGTV Dream Home 2012 houses a private drive that leads to an incorporated garage, clad in fiber cement siding and topped with an asphalt shingle roof. A covered walkway, clad in durable composite decking, connects the garage to the family room.
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.
A decorative arbor, constructed of cedar beams and galvanized metal pipes, filters sunlight and creates interesting shadow details. The architectural element echoes the design of railing details in the front yard.
A 59-inch flat-screen TV, mounted above the fireplace, provides entertainment throughout the year in this four-season room. Black wicker chairs provide a place to get warm by the fire. Semi-sheer grommet drapes may be drawn for privacy.
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.
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.
Master Bedroom Courtyard With Eco-Friendly Dog House
A 64-inch-tall Doggie Green Home mirrors the main home in both exterior cladding and crimped metal roofing. The structure was designed by the HGTV Green Home 2012 architect and constructed locally. A set of painted cedar stairs, crafted by carpenter David Brown, provide a rustic finishing touch.
