Sitting Room Photos: HGTV Green Home 2010

  • Bathed in a paint color coined “Bracing Blue,” the sitting room offers a spot to rest, relax or read a book.

  • An attic hatch door is concealed in a decorative wall grid crafted by builder Glenn MacKenzie. The treatment extends the length of one wall, where 1x4s duplicate the look of expensive wood paneling.

  • Track lighting illuminates the entrance to the Sitting Room, where sunlight provides sufficient lighting during daytime hours.

  • The stairway makes its ascent to the tower level. At the landing, a 3x4-foot grapevine wreath continues the design motif of circles and squares.

  • Overstuffed club chairs, upholstered in a swirling fabric, stand out against a sea of blue.

  • Countering the circular pattern of upholstery fabric, throw pillows are accented with satin ribbon stripes.

  • An industrial-style table displays a small pot of greenery and a candle-filled cement tray.

  • Shadow boxes, filled with salvaged shells, make a dramatic presentation and echo the home’s coastal location.

  • A wall-mounted Viera 32-inch HD LCD Energy Star-rated television is at the ready should a small gathering segue into movie night.

  • A beanbag-filled hemp pouf offers additional seating for young children.

  • A repurposed wood mirror discovered in Yarmouth reflects sunlight and adds an additional layer of texture. “It provides a funky frame around that wonderful candlestick lamp,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

  • An aloe plant, perched atop a coffee table, injects the space with a natural element.

  • Pillar candles, displayed in a botanical tray, add a soft glow of light in the sitting room.

  • Fringe-like greenery in a decorative urn plays up the home’s seaside location and ties into the overall color palette.

  • A vintage basket flipped over and topped with a piece of beveled glass stands in as a coffee table. “The rich warm tones of the basket echo the warm tones of the mirror,” explains interior designer Linda Woodrum.
