Living Room Pictures From HGTV Dream Home 2007
This cozy living room lodge from HGTV Dream Home 2007 showcases rustic touches with sophisticated details, delivering a true Colorado feel.
Colorado's colors and textures take over the house, thanks to designer Linda Woodrum's commitment to bringing the outdoors in.
Linda believes design is all about contrasting surfaces, and she has achieved high contrast in the living room of the house with the earthy matte tones of the upholstery and wood. Details include comfortable overstuffed wing chairs, a blue sofa and plaid throw pillows. A dainty French chest of drawers near the window showcases curvy lines hewn from knotty, bleached pine — another combination of the grace and rusticity found throughout the house.
Despite the gorgeous fireplace, the most interesting element in the room is the rough-hewn wood beams that cross a neutral ceiling.
Where ski lodges often feature taxidermy as a decorative accent, this living room brings wildlife indoors in a more humane way with faux deer antler candleholders and a pair of bird nests in glass boxes. "You can bring a rustic feel to a room, but you want to make sure that a rustic room still invites people in," Linda says.
