Eclectic, Eco-Friendly Master Suite Loft

An area rug, in soft, neutral hues and woven from recyclable nylon, serves as inspiration for the color palette. A beetle-kill pine door separates the loft from the master suite.

Eco-Friendly Kitchen With Terrazzo-Blend Countertops

Custom hickory wood cabinetry establishes the HGTV Green Home 2012 kitchen's subdued neutral palette. In the waterfall island front, double doors open to reveal 23-inch-deep by 40-inch-wide storage cabinets. To encourage dining at the table or in the courtyard, interior designer Linda Woodrum eliminated barstools.

Contemporary With Streamlined Kitchen Island

The same bamboo paneling and quartz countertops are used on the island to create a cohesive design. Outlets are installed in the sides of the island for convenience.

Trees Add Dimension to Desert Landscape

The landscaping in this Southwestern style front yard is given dimension by the addition of drought friendly trees that shade the home's windows from the hot, desert sun.
