The back entry hall sets the stage for the eco-friendly design scheme of HGTV Green Home 2010, where tiled floors and traditional pendant-lighting fixtures balance out bright and cheerful furnishings and artwork.
With a floating island, task lighting and storage galore, the home’s mud, laundry and recycling room accommodates a wide variety of household chores and hobbies, from crafting to gardening.
Traditional meets edgy in this lavish green bathroom, where Chippendale-style mirrors and New England-style, V-grove wall paneling offset a glass-enclosed shower, sleek soaking tub and contemporary bath fixtures.
Chair-rail striping pulls together the bathroom’s color palette of bright tango orange and hearts-of-palm green. Shimmering glass shower stall tile and a festive faux-bois mirror elevate the down-to-earth design.
Inspired by the design of shingle-style cottages that dot the coastline of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, HGTV Green Home 2010 combines the best of earth-friendly living and practical home design.
The cottage-inspired wraparound porch – complete with PVC decking, lead-coated copper roofing and slim porch columns – brings the charm to this coastal getaway.
From an Energy Star-rated, steel-insulated carriage door to a solar exhaust fan that aerates the attic located above it, the two-car garage is both eco-friendly and functional.
The eco-friendly outdoor kitchen and its surrounding courtyard and recessed grilling center is conducive to both casual family cookouts and festive gatherings.
The winner of HGTV Dream Home 2010 will receive the GMC Terrain, which features full-efficient performance, a rear vision camera, a programmable power rear liftgate, a standard USP port, available Bluetooth connectivity and GMC's 100,000 mile/5-year Powertrain Limited Warranty.
