HGTV Dream Home 2010: Sunrise Room Pictures

A light-filled hallway leads past the master suite and into a quiet nook for contemplation. A wall of windows looks out onto the side yard.

A contemporary recliner chair, upholstered in a soft neutral suede, provides a cozy nook where one can concentrate on a good book or enjoy the spectacular Sandia Park sunrises.

Sectioned off by a plush rug, the reading area is warmed by a Rinnai gas fireplace and brightened by a woven seagrass lamp, which adds a textural element.

A wood sculpture set on a decorative pedestal serves as the room's sole piece of artwork. Sourced at a gallery in Texas, the piece blurs the line between indoors and out.

Just steps from the master suite, the sunrise room features its own private side door that leads to a small paved and landscaped courtyard.
