Living Room

A strong, clean and eco-friendly design aesthetic hallmarks the green Living Room, where crisp white walls and a coffered ceiling play well with bold furnishings and accessories.

Kitchen

A ruby-red Caesarstone countertop, crisp white Shaker-style cabinetry and moss green and charcoal glass tile deliver a stylish look in this traditional-meets-eclectic green kitchen.

Dining Room

A repurposed wood table and a light fixture fashioned from a vintage factory basket shine in this light-filled green dining room, which overlooks the side courtyard.

Hall

The back entry hall sets the stage for the eco-friendly design scheme of HGTV Green Home 2010, where tiled floors and traditional pendant-lighting fixtures balance out bright and cheerful furnishings and artwork.

Laundry Room

With a floating island, task lighting and storage galore, the home’s mud, laundry and recycling room accommodates a wide variety of household chores and hobbies, from crafting to gardening.

Sitting Room

Serving as an anteroom to the Master Bedroom, the eco-friendly sitting area pops with bold furnishings, paneled walls and artwork and accessories that echo the coastal location.

Master Bedroom

Interior designer Linda Woodrum pulled out all the stops in the contemporary-style bedroom, which pairs eco-friendly bedding and furnishings with over-the-top design elements.

Master Bathroom

Traditional meets edgy in this lavish green bathroom, where Chippendale-style mirrors and New England-style, V-grove wall paneling offset a glass-enclosed shower, sleek soaking tub and contemporary bath fixtures.

Master Closet

Custom designed for HGTV Green Home 2010, the Master Closet – complete with hickory floors, a crisp white interior and a custom vanity – proves that earth-friendly design need not compromise style.

Kid's Bedroom

A room designed to grow with children, this play and sleep space for two features custom-built bunk beds and storage solutions that make organizing easy for kids.

Kid's Bathroom

Chair-rail striping pulls together the bathroom’s color palette of bright tango orange and hearts-of-palm green. Shimmering glass shower stall tile and a festive faux-bois mirror elevate the down-to-earth design.

Tower

A tranquil spot to reflect, read or catch up on work projects, the Tower offers breathtaking views of lush woodlands that surround HGTV Green Home 2010.

Exterior Front

Inspired by the design of shingle-style cottages that dot the coastline of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, HGTV Green Home 2010 combines the best of earth-friendly living and practical home design.

Covered Porch

The cottage-inspired wraparound porch – complete with PVC decking, lead-coated copper roofing and slim porch columns – brings the charm to this coastal getaway.

Garage Exterior

From an Energy Star-rated, steel-insulated carriage door to a solar exhaust fan that aerates the attic located above it, the two-car garage is both eco-friendly and functional.

Outdoor Kitchen

The eco-friendly outdoor kitchen and its surrounding courtyard and recessed grilling center is conducive to both casual family cookouts and festive gatherings.

GMC® Terrain

The winner of HGTV Dream Home 2010 will receive the GMC Terrain, which features full-efficient performance, a rear vision camera, a programmable power rear liftgate, a standard USP port, available Bluetooth connectivity and GMC's 100,000 mile/5-year Powertrain Limited Warranty.
