Ethan Allen Furnishes HGTV Dream Home 2012 near Park City, Utah14:11 EST Tuesday, January 17, 2012 DANBURY, Conn. (Business Wire) -- Ethan Allen proudly celebrates its role as primary furnisher of the HGTV Dream Home 2012. HGTV Dream Home Interior Designer Linda Woodrum showcased the company's furniture, upholstery, window treatments, and accessories throughout the sprawling, nearly 4,000-square-foot, modern, western ranch home. "This is our sixth consecutive year of furnishing the HGTV Dream Home, and each year is as exciting for us as the first. It's a pleasure to see pieces from our five Signature Lifestyles play such a key part in making this HGTV Dream Home the home that so many would love to own," said Marta Eriquez, Director of Interior Design for Ethan Allen. Nestled along the picturesque Provo River near Park City, Utah, this year's HGTV Dream Home is the first riverfront home, and it offers beautiful views from every room. The picture-perfect setting offers easy access to world-class skiing, myriad seasonal outdoor activities, and the resort town's most famous annual attraction—the Sundance Film Festival. The home boasts three bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a dedicated entertainment room, and a gourmet kitchen. Boardwalks connect five covered decks, the outdoor living room, the hot tub, and the changing room. Its great room, which was designed to resemble an old stone structure, bridges indoors and out with its many transom and French-style windows. Inspired by the color of the Utah sky, Woodrum incorporated shades of cool blue throughout the great room—from the houndstooth fabric on the Parker chairs to the ikat artwork above the fireplace to the pinstriped fabric on the Lewis ottomans that she tucked beneath the Turner desk. The palette of hues she saw in the surrounding meadow led her to choose luxurious fabrics in gold, rust, lime, and mocha for the master bedroom. She also used the Maxime nine-light chandelier, Floral wall sconces, Monterey and Baldwin chairs, and the Alison headboard to create a warm and welcoming feeling. “The refreshing blues and sun-kissed green, gold, and rust colors that Linda has placed throughout the home will surely inspire the inhabitants of this modern oasis to feel attuned to its gorgeous surroundings,” said Eriquez. Only one lucky person will win the HGTV Dream Home 2012, but the design pros at Ethan Allen see every home as a dream home in the making. Ethan Allen's diversity of styles and its ability to provide nearly everything for the well-designed home has made it a top destination for fashion-forward, one-stop shoppers.
