Hall Photos: HGTV Green Home 2010

A demilune table, crafted by carpenter David Brown, creates a bright spot in the back entry hall. Topped with mercury-glass demijohns and succulents, the vignette pops with an encaustic painting by artist Kim Bernard.

An understated gray wall color and pendant light fixtures balance the visually captivating table vignette. The ceiling features a traditional New England skip-trowel finish.

In a high-traffic area, durable – and eco-friendly – tile is the flooring of choice. With a texture inspired by the moon’s surface, the flooring pairs well with a primitive horse-feed basket and a men's wear-inspired carpet runner.

The tiled hallway, flooded with natural light from courtyard windows, gives way to a great room defined by Rosedown Hickory flooring and coffered ceilings.

The hall bathroom features a dual-flush toilet, modern bath fixtures and a driftwood mirror discovered in Plymouth. “Could it have been in a cottage 150 years ago? Yes. Could it be in a contemporary environment? Yes,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “I like those things that can transition back and forth.”
