The bold architecture of HGTV Dream Home 2007 is apparent in its stylish master suite, where the soaring ceiling is planked in pine and stacked with timber trusses that delivers a comfy cabin feel.
The cocoa-colored walls are offset with tone-on-tone furniture and decor that make the room cozy and comfortable. Designer Linda Woodrum adds interest to the white in the room by layering diverse textures of all-natural fabrics in creams and tans trimmed with fringe and tassels. The four-poster bed is draped with bleached cotton tie-top panels that make up its headboard.
The milky wood of the bed frame is repeated in the stately armoires, one of them a glass-doored hutch filled with guest towels the other a more traditional cupboard for storing bedclothes and extra pillows. Rather than traditional end tables, Linda has positioned a white maple bureau on one side of the bed and a matching credenza on the other. Each of these is topped with a tall, white-framed mirror that reflects the dazzling sunlight pouring in the room's massive floor-to-ceiling windows.
The windows are hung with old-fashioned, mocha velvet draperies. Used in this modern setting, the suede-like panels add an extra layer of texture in addition to the wool area rug, polished wood flooring and bedside bark-and-wicker baskets. When the draperies are closed, the only burst of color in the room comes from the brilliant jade and lime green of a large oil painting on the stacked-stone fireplace.
