HGTV Dream Home 2007

Winter Park, Colorado

This mountain home is a skier's dream, located at the base of popular Colorado trails.
The gorgeous scenery on the drive up U.S. Highway 40 from Denver into Winter Park, Colo., doesn't end when you reach the 2007 HGTV Dream Home. Walking up the river rock steps to the front porch, you're surrounded by fragrant green pine trees and magnificent blue skies. Colorado's colors and textures continue throughout the house, thanks to interior designer Linda Woodrum's commitment to bringing the outdoors inside. The result is a beautiful and comfy cabin stile home.

Design is all about contrasting surfaces, Woodrum believes, and she's achieved high contrast in the living room of the house — known as the "lodge room" — with the earthy matte tones of the upholstery and wood, which play off the metal and glass of the windows. The result is a living room that's rustic yet sophisticated; wide-open and still cozy. Details include comfortable overstuffed wing chairs, a sofa covered in blue, and cotton velvet sport plaid throw pillows reminiscent of a lumberjack's flannel shirt.

A dainty French chest of drawers near the window is all curvy lines hewn from knotty, bleached pine — another combination of the grace and rusticity found throughout the house.

Shiny Details
A wooden tray of silver candelabras on the coffee table is one of my favorite details in the room. This is an easy way to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in any room.

The kitchen is open to the dining room. With the large windows opening up to the woods and the wildlife this is almost like eating outdoors. The colors are warm and golden, with splashes of blue.

Master Bedroom
The big, bold architecture of the 2007 HGTV Dream Home is apparent in its stylish master suite, where the soaring ceiling is planked in pine and stacked with timber trusses that give the room a comfy cabin-in-the-cotton feel.

With the high ceiling and vast view of the mountains this room could easily have become cold and unwelcoming. Instead designer Linda Woodrom has created the ultimate romantic hideaway. Its cocoa-colored walls are offset with tone-on-tone furniture and decor that make the room cozy and comfortable.

The designer adds interest to the white in the room by layering diverse textures of all-natural fabrics in creams and tans trimmed with fringe and tassels. There's even a chair in front of the fireplace where you can curl up with a good book and a cup of cocoa on a cold winter's day.

For the HGTV Dream Home 2007 master bath, designer Linda Woodrum created a symphony of soft silk, cotton and velvet contrasted by rugged iron, wood and wicker. When the chandelier is lit you can create your own unique spa experience.

This comfortable landing doubles as a living space where folks can step outside to commune with nature, curl up on the daybed and take a nap or even spend the night.

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, snug table perfect for morning coffee.
