Last week, I had a fantastic opportunity to visit the 2020 HGTV Dream Home in person, thanks to Cabinets To Go (one of this year’s sponsors). Obviously, the setting was beautiful. I had forgotten how much I liked Hilton Head. (We’ve been there a few times during Summer; it’s about a 4 1/2-hour drive from Charlotte.) The house itself was an open concept but not so overwhelming that it didn’t still feel cozy. Lots of windows and doors opening onto amazing porches and patios to enjoy the view. I snapped lots of pictures of things that caught my eye, and I’m sharing more video on my Instagram stories.
- The backyard is truly a haven. It’s private, spacious and there are multiple areas for sitting, sleeping, reading, swimming. . . Also, I would only ever have a pool so that I could float big white orbs in it.
- Painted ceilings everywhere. Bryan Patrick Flynn, this year’s designer, carried color to the ceilings in almost every room. (And they don’t always have to be high contrast from the walls.)
- The concept of a large multifunctional laundry room. Why did builders ever start putting washers and dryers in small closets? A lot of us spend a good portion of our weeks in the laundry room and I love the idea of enough room to add a table, spacious counter top, and a pet crate (that looks like a custom built-in but wasn’t). Video tour posted to my IG stories.
