Decorating the HGTV Green Home (Slideshow)

Interior design adds a vast difference to the way a home appears. This might sound obvious, but it becomes crystal clear when comparing a slideshow of before and after images of the HGTV Green Home at Serenbe.

The home was given away in a contest with more than 35 million entries. The winner, a Texas woman, was announced last week. Mary Jones won the fully furnished 2,300-square-foot green home at Serenbe, which is a sustainable eco-friendly community near Atlanta.

Fiber cement board was used on the home's exterior, along with a 5-V crimp metal roofing system and locally sourced stone cladding. Inside the home, the decor of some areas, such as the living room, were purposely kept understated by interior designer Linda Woodrum in order to allow the outdoor views to be the focal point.

The kitchen features an open flow pattern and is designed with hickory cabinets and travertine, glass tile and terrazzo-blend countertops. And the kid's room pops with fun lime green accents and an irresistible loft area.
