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.

Those mirrors are all over South Ga fleamarkets. New metal distressed to look like old ceiling tiles. Also at Scott's market Atlanta. Don't pay over 150!

A small clarification: The glass chandelier is a Murano, but I found it at a New Orleans antique shop. The quality of the handblown glass is superb. :)

I do not know the origins of the mirror, as it was repurposed from a friend's inventory. Sorry to not be of more assistance.

The bench is custom version of the Hudson Bench from Bradshaw Kirchofer. I specified an old pine wax finish to mimic an antique.

If there is space on either side of the door, it may be an option to remove the door, then re-frame it to one side or the other to consolidate the available space for a bench. Keep in mind any potential effects on the exterior curb appeal and symmetry/balance of the home.

The interior paint is Mythic Non-Toxic paint, matched to Benjamin Moore's Mayonnaise. A nice warm white that works well on walls and trim.

hi Lisa! I am in Cambridge, and wonder whether you may be able to help...I am trying to source a small, very simple Murano chandelier. do you have any recommendations? I see that you say this one came from an antique store and that you removed some arms... it looks lovely.
thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

Hi kathymsolomon.
I found the chandelier at an antique store in New Orleans. It is Murano glass. You can find Murano chandeliers online, but they are typically newly made in Italy... some better quality than others. This chandelier had more scroll arms but I removed them for a more streamlined look. I have not seen this style at Circa myself, which carries primarily the Visual Comfort line.

Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The entryway gives visitors a hint of what's in store inside. While it incorporates farmhouse touches like this bench, it also has an open, light and elegant style throughout, hinted at via the Murano glass chandelier. Healthiness begins at the front door; remove your dusty shoes and pop them into the storage bench so as not to track dirt indoors. Continuing the war against dust, dirt, pollen and other allergens, the first floor utilizes radiant heat flooring throughout. This kind of heating is a healthy alternative to forced air system because it helps keeps allergens from circulating.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Ideas to Make a Great Entrance
Yes, we're all so vain. Hang a mirror right in the entry so you can do a last-minute hair check as you run out the door. If you have a small entry, the reflection from the mirror will help expand the area and add the impression of more light.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Single Design Moves That Can Transform an Entry
Remove the charming antique bench from this entry, and the palpable statement “Please come in and make yourself at home” disappears.
“ … there is often one particular thing that really kicks the room up a notch — that gives it that little something extra. — Becky DietrichIt’s so true; one great light, bench, work of art or antique can take a room design from just dandy to fantastic. I look forward to following this series, which points out these stellar pieces room by room.Full story: Single Design Moves That Can Transform an EntryTell us: What new idea did you stumble upon this week?
