HGTV Dream Home 2012: Changing Room Pictures
A quiet place of reflection and escape, the changing room offers a cozy leather chair and ottoman, perched in a corner and facing dramatic river views. A peg rail keeps waders, nets and hats at the ready.
Ornamentation is held down in this hobby and reading area; a potted dendrobium orchid and onion-jar lamp provide a decorative flourish while maintaining interior designer Linda Woodrum's clean and pared-down design approach.
The tiered dresser — a storage receptacle for tackle, ties and reading material — exemplifies American craftsmanship.
A low-growing bonsai adds a pop of fresh green color and echoes the look of vegetation that lines the river's edge.
Ottomans serve as tabletop surfaces or additional seating; lamb's wool throws lend texture and soften the room's masculine undertones.
Monotypes from artist Marshall Crossman's "Beach Series" feel right at home in a space dedicated to fly-fishing. The artist's palette of bright primary colors stands in contrast to the room's gray, black and lime-green palette.
Ghost nets, tie-adorned fishing caps, stockingfoots and vests double as wall adornment.
A late addition to the home design, a sauna room provides a warm and invigorating escape after a day spent on the Park City slopes.
The compact 3-by-5-foot space is clad, walls to ceiling, in tongue-and-grove air-cured red cedar boards. A travertine-tile floor complements the wood interior.
The wall-mounted sauna heater features built-in controls with a 60-minute timer and heat-tested igneous Finnish stones.
The ottoman's cheery graphic print is repeated in the trim of custom drapery. The soft heather shade of gray complements the wall and carpet colors.
Floor lamps lend architectural interest and, paired with traditional furnishings, contribute to the home's overall sense of evolved-over-time decor.
An iron cage chandelier, originally earmarked for a staircase landing, finds a home in the changing room. "With all that gray color, having that punch of black and white is just perfect," says Linda. "And it feels like the room."
Decorative display boxes, topped with a resin horn sculpture, become their own conversation piece when stacked pyramid-style.
Ready and waiting for the winner of HGTV Dream Home, a collection of ties, tucked securely in a fishing hat, takes pride of place in the changing room.
House planner Jack Thomasson shopped at Trout Bum 2 fly shop in Park City for fly-tying accessories. Forceps, scissors and a guidebook to Utah fishing are among accessories that comprise a makeshift tying station.
A fishing vest, complete with external pockets, serves as a display surface for more hand-fashioned ties.
"The point of this room is: This house is situated on a river," says Linda. "You can come in, tie flies and do all things related to outdoor activities in this room. And you have a nice chair to sit in, relax and read about fishing."
