Want to go green on your next home improvement project? Take a look at Carter Oosterhouse's favorite eco-friendly (and often economical) supplies and materials.
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.
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.
Shimmering penny round mosaic tile lends glamour to this laundry room that doubles as a craft area and playful word signs crafted by carpenter David Brown add more color to the space.
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.
Stainless steel appliances, hardware and accents make this kitchen feel fresh and contemporary. Recycled countertops give the space a pop of color and an eco-friendly touch.
This nature-inspired living room is connected to a lovely courtyard by a wall of glass framed by custom-made drapes. Colors, textures and even the height of furniture was kept down in order to highlight the view outside.
