Designed to feel detached from the home's most social areas, the master bedroom pops with vibrant color.
The room's color palette draws inspiration from the area rug, a contemporary and naturally stain-resistant floor covering that tells its own green story: The rug fibers are made from recycled soda bottles.
Designer linen throw pillows in the room's palette offer a cozy topping to organic bedding.
Shades of mocha in the area rug inspired both the decorative wall treatment and the bed shams.
"I wanted to add a lot of interest and texture in the master bedroom, so this room has a lot of layering," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "It was really fun to pack so much into a small room, yet keep it clean and uncluttered."
Making the most of a smaller space, a series of raffia-upholstered squares stands in place of a traditional headboard. The wall treatment, crafted by carpenter David Brown, is easily updated with new upholstery fabric.
Exotic Cymbidium orchids greet guests at the room's entrance and provide subtle fragrance.
Old fencing is thoughtfully repurposed as the frame for an antiqued mirror, while a brown demilune table, too tall for the pint-size space, was trimmed down and spray-painted a vivid shade of turquoise.
Cedar fencing and the home's own thin-set stone cladding provide a buffer of privacy in the courtyard, where all-weather stackable chaises, fashioned from a material that incorporates post-consumer bottle waste, provide a sunbathing area.
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 architect and constructed locally. A set of painted cedar stairs, crafted by carpenter David Brown, provide a rustic finishing touch.
