HGTV Dream Home 2007: Third-Floor Loft Pictures

Designer Linda Woodrum transformed this third-floor loft into a chic and functional sleeping space in HGTV Dream Home 2007.

  • More Than a Loft

    This comfortable landing doubles as a living space where guests can step outside to commune with nature, curl up on the daybed and take a nap or even spend the night. The daybed is one of the most distinctive pieces in the house. Custom-made for this space, it's constructed entirely of Aspen wood branches smoothed and lightly glazed, but still retains enough of their original rough form to remind you of a soaring tree.

  • Colorful Harmony

    Exposed beams frame the space and harmonize beautifully with the dark walnut flooring and the cotton area rug showcasing hues of blue and taupe.

  • Friendly Chatting

    Designer Linda Woodrum calls the loft landing \"a chit-chatting area.\" It's the perfect spot to converse while enjoying the breathtaking forest view beyond the window.

  • Opposites Attract

    Because there are so many traditional elements in the house, Linda wanted to feature something unexpected, so she hung a large light fixture made from an old wine barrel.

  • Historical Touch

    A row of black leather boxes rest on a dark walnut console. Above the table, details from antique postcards — each of them more than 100 years old — are finished with black wood frames and wide, white matting.

  • Functional and Practical

    During daylight hours, the daybed is dressed in a cozy, custom comforter patterned with blue and white ticking squares, and rolled bolster cushions in a complementary striped pattern. A cushioned ottoman opens to store bedding and doubles as a coffee table and additional seating. The wall behind the daybed is draped with cotton-pleated curtains in palest latte, a shade that covers the adjacent wall of windows, too.

  • Mountain Views

    Beyond the loft's indoor seating area, an outdoor observation deck shared by the guest bedrooms is decked out with a pair of ladder-back chairs and a small table perfect for morning coffee. Tall pines tower just beyond the custom metal railing, which repeats the \"double X\" design from the stair railing inside the house.

  • Place for Everyone

    The loft is a space that provides not only comfortable seating and extra sleeping space for guests, but also a room as lovely as the spectacular view outside the windows.
