Designer Linda Woodrum brings the outdoors in with her color palette for the dining room of the HGTV Dream Home 2006.
"Rather than have the dining room table become a catch-all for all the junk in the house, make sure it looks good when you walk in," says Woodrum. A lifelike sculpture of a playful beagle puppy on the table is HGTV host Joan Steffend’s favorite thing in the house. "I just want to rub that round belly," she says.
A beautiful semi-abstract painting in a recessed alcove captures the eye with strong shades of green, red and gold. Woodrum saw a smaller version of the painting in an art gallery, and asked the artist to create a similar piece on a larger scale. The images of trees outlined against a colorful sky mirrors the images outside the dining room window.
Everything in the room is "a support system" for the scene unfolding outside the enormous window, Woodrum says. "All this has to be rich, wonderful, welcoming – but that view has to dominate."
