Perfect Sunroom

It's easy to imagine watching the sun set across the water from the Green Home's beautiful living room. The expansive windows and French doors make it feel like a solarium, the abundant glass capitalizing on the view from all angles.

Energy Efficient

These are among the most energy-efficient windows and doors on the market. They reduce the amount of glare and heat gain through high-performance glass and are surrounded with additional flashing to help prevent moisture problems.

Simple Furniture

In this room, the furniture is simple and beautifully upholstered with eco-friendly fabrics in neutral colors and rich textures. The couch is a high-backed settee, its low arms perfect for propping a pillow against for a nap. Linda Woodrum, the home's interior designer, used an antique vineyard table for a coffee table. "Everything is square and boxy in here and I used the oval table to soften it up," she says. On the table are an antique cheese basket and an unusual geometric vase.

Casual Balance

Four chairs and an ottoman complete the seating area. These pieces are upholstered with a striped fabric that resembles finely woven seersucker in camel and cream. The chairs face each other in a formal arrangement that is balanced by the casual ottoman.
