HGTV Green Home 2012: Retreat Pictures

A room designed for quiet reflection boasts the home's most saturated color palette.

  • Menswear fabrics coupled with floral and geometric prints prove a winning combination in a space designed as a place for reflection — and escape from large gatherings.

  • House planner Jack Thomasson discovered the encaustic on wood by Sherry Cook during a shopping adventure. The room's \"softening edge\" serves as a foil to the space's intense color palette and architectural lines.

  • A hammered metal bowl, surrounded by primitive-style accessories, adds the needed hint of glamour and shine.

  • A dramatic suspension lamp designed by Denis Santachiara becomes an intriguing focal point. A hidden light source within the drum provides a soft, warm glow.

  • Interior designer Linda Woodrum discovered the room's dramatic industrial-style console table at Canton Street Antique Market.

  • The table's galvanized metal-wrapped surface features the home's signature design application: nailhead trim.

  • A bouquet of persimmon branches offers a subtle nod to HGTV Green Home 2012's southern location.

  • A pocket door may be drawn during times of private reflection. \"The retreat is a place to sit quietly with a friend, or read a book or watch TV or do something on your iPad or your computer,\" says interior designer Linda Woodrum. \"It's the room where you are more by yourself.\"

  • \"That color envelopes you and makes you feel cozy,\" says Linda of the ginger wall color. \"The same as Serenbe. I love how you feel in Serenbe.\"

  • Pillows covered in \"Shade of Sycamore,\" a block-print fabric by artist Katie Leede, complement the room's intense wall color. \"And I just love the fabric because it has that agrarian or natural motif,\" says Linda.

  • Floral-print upholstery fabric stands in contrast to the room's more vibrant fabric patterns and colors.

  • Black-and-white photography, purchased at Bungalow in Atlanta, references Serenbe's equestrian community. \"One of the things I love about Serenbe: It's so real. It's a real community,\" says Linda.

  • Menswear fabric in a bold check balances the room's more feminine details.

  • Another reason for the dramatic wall color? \"When you are looking down the hallway, it has to be cool,\" says Linda. \"It has to be significant.\"

  • A cast-iron table with a reclaimed wood top serves as a display for a trio of mercury glass candle holders and Dendrobium orchids.

  • A rustic wall shelf, fashioned from reclaimed 50-year-old railroad ties and recycled metal, provides storage as well as a perch for the room's 37-inch flat-screen TV.

  • Carpenter David Brown crafted two lucite cubes to serve as a coffee table. Cubes, set on casters, are easy to relocate when the sleeper sofa is folded out for guests.

  • Lending charm, as well as rusticity and texture, birch logs serve as filler for transparent cubes.

  • The retreat is within close proximity to the home's active spaces, including the barbecue courtyard and the vaulted Georgia room.
