Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

The painting is an original by Teri Malo, from a series that is still available at Powers Gallery in Acton, MA.

I commissioned the window treatments from Acorn Interiors. I sourced the linen blend fabric and specified the tailor pleats to complement the custom window hardware.

Best, Lisa

Hi Denise.

I found a vintage glass pie display and repurposed it as a side table. The patina on this piece and its proportions were a perfect fit. The glass shelves offer a great place for displaying curated objects and seasonal touches.

Thanks for your question.

Hello heatherjg.

The cocktail table is a 4' square reclaimed teak beauty. I can source it for you if interested. Feel free to contact me at

I used this gorgeous Charlotte Wing Sofa by Verellen as the design centerpiece of this living room. I recommend Verellen Home Collection to my interior design clients, not only because of the timeless, Belgian-inspired aesthetic, but also because the fabrics are organic, wood is eco-friendly, and slipcovers make care a cinch!

Enjoy! - Lisa....

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The furnishings in the living room have a bit of Belgian flair, industrial touches, and the overall feeling of an elegant yet relaxed coastal getaway. "Industrial and vintage elements keep it interesting," Kauffman Tharp says. "I repurposed an old glass pie display as a side table with seashells inside, and the rusted tin chimney piece from France acts as a quirky foil on the low table."
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to 9 Tasteful Ideas for Traditional Living Room Floors
Keep hardwood bare. A gorgeous traditional room often requires no rug at all. Hardwood floors are clean and classic, and they blend beautifully with other elements in a neutral palette.
