The dining room, flooded with sunlight, is designed to accommodate casual family mealtime as well as entertaining. Comfortable seating and colorful artwork set the stage.

Interior designer Linda Woodrum selected glicée prints on fine art paper by American artist Melissa Wood to grace the dining room’s far wall. The style echoes the design of ikat-print pillows in the living room. “They add so much drama to the space,” she says. “And it’s a way to really enliven that spot.”

Glicées, reminiscent of midcentury modern wallpaper, add drama and color in the dining room.

Upholstered end chairs are paired with leather side chairs for a comfortable mix of seating options.

The dining table, handmade in Argentina, features a semi-tropical hardwood top and a hand-forged metal base.

Continuing the casual dining theme, a fruit-filled metal platter stands in for a formal floral arrangement in the dining room.

Clear glass candle pillars add height while contributing to the space’s unobstructed view of the side yard.

The natural edge of the wood slab adds character to the dining room table. The hand-rubbed finish complements the hand-scraped maple flooring.

Windows provide a view of the side yard and landscaping details. “You’ve got this great indoor/outdoor relationship working,” says Infinity Home Collection’s general manager, David Steinke. “And that’s how people tend to entertain here.”

A clear glass, lava stone-filled vase displays a spray of spring branches. “They add a wonderful sense of energy and rebirth,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

A ceiling-mounted, wave-shaped light fixture, interior designer Linda Woodrum’s favorite dining room design element, features adjustable track lights. “I just think it’s gorgeous,” she says. “It’s crazy-looking and different. It’s not your grandmother’s chandelier.”

A loop rug in a soft acorn shade anchors the space.

A marriage of rustic and formal, the table’s hand-forged metal base and chair legs create their own architectural design element.

Top-down/button-up cellular shades reduce energy loss by up to 50 percent and accommodate all privacy needs in the dining area.

HGTV Green Home 2011 features approximately 20 windows, an assortment of awning, single hung, slide and stationary models.

Crisp white linen drapes, hung at the very top of walls, visually heighten the dining room and provide an additional layer of insulation during Denver’s winter months.
