Open and Airy

The great room of this harbor home feels spacious and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Puget Sound. Painting the room in crisp white provides a bright backdrop for the large iron chandelier that anchors the sitting area.

Relaxed and Effortless

An iron frame on this transitional coffee table echoes the iron found in the great room’s chandelier and adds architectural interest to expansive space. White upholstered sofas provide ample seating without making the room feel heavy.

Natural Accents

The marble top on the coffee table adds a subtle, natural texture and creates the perfect spot for a book or drink while you relax in this pristine space.

Calm Oasis

The back wall of windows that overlook the Puget Sound is anchored by a marble tiled fireplace. Flanking the fireplace with upholstered white sofas on each side makes a perfect gathering place for entertaining friends or an equally relaxing spot to read by the fire after a long day.

Sunset Accents

Sea green and soft pink accents throughout the room were inspired by the colors of the area’s stunning summer sunsets. They add subtle contrast against the ultra white walls and give a nod to Puget Sound’s coastal color palette.

Modern Marble

White marble tile on the fireplace echoes the marble on the room’s coffee table and also adds a modern texture the keeps it feeling fresh.

Wow-Worthy Greenery

A massive, 9-foot-tall fiddle leaf fig tree adds life to the room. Bringing an element of nature into the living space creates an inviting and relaxing atmosphere.

In-Home Monitoring

Part of the home's comprehensive wireless security system, an indoor camera placed in the great room streams crystal clear 720p HD video that allows monitoring of the home from an app.

Industrial Accents

Iron and wood open shelving echoes the industrial accents found throughout the space while using natural materials like wicker for storage baskets adds a coastal feeling to what could be a boring corner of the room.

Metalwork Details

The massive black iron chandelier and the modern marble and steel coffee table pop against the all white room and floor-to-ceiling windows. “We needed something to break it all up and balance it and keep it from becoming too soft,” said designer Brian Patrick Flynn.

Old Becomes New

White globe bulbs on the industrial iron chandelier are a subtle nod to the home’s 1970’s origin. This rustic lighting anchors the room and feels fresh and modern when paired against ultra white walls.

Coastal Contrast

A sea green rug adds coastal contrast against the whitewashed wood floors from Lumber Liquidators. The natural textures play against each other nicely while bouncing light around the room.

Safe and Secure

The plug-and-play base station for the home’s top-notch security system with wireless technology sits next to one of the two key chain remotes that control the system, with a panic button included for extra security.

Seaside Escape

Floor-to-ceiling windows brings the outdoors in and transforms this great room into a seaside escape. Natural accents like the driftwood and glass side table add a coastal vibe without overwhelming the clean and airy feel of the room.

Imaginative Storage

Woven baskets hung on the wall add imaginative storage for towels while adding rhythm and texture to the white walls. Pops of pink from pillows to dining chairs bring elements from the great room into the dining area to unify the spaces.

Industrial Influence

A custom painted sign for Chinook Bait and Tackle from artist Celery Jones evokes a reclaimed storefront sign from nearby Gig Harbor. Industrial style pendant lights are inspired by lights you would find on a pier or dock adding a coastal feel to the space.

Coastal Farmhouse Dining

Bench seating is perfect for large groups or families and makes it easy to squeeze extra guests around the farmhouse table. The concrete top of this masculine bench adds a modern element when contrasted against the whitewashed wood floors.

Opposites Attract

A whitewashed farmhouse table adds a bit of rustic chic to the clean white space. Mixing modern chairs in a soft pink with a masculine concrete and wood bench adds an eclectic accent that still feels streamlined.

Millennial Pink Seating

Modern pink chairs add a midcentury vibe to the dining area while also picking up the millennial pink tones in the custom painting from artist Celery Jones.

Gathering Place

The long whitewashed farmhouse table is the perfect place for brunch with family and friends.

Rustic Simplicity

Perfect for morning coffee and the Sunday paper or a dinner party with your closest friends, this rustic whitewashed farmhouse table is a simple and classic element in the dining room.

Bait and Tackle

Coastal life means fishing is as much a part of the environment as anything else. A custom painting from artist Celery Jones depicts a large trout in the style of a bait and tackle shop and acts as a focal point for the dining area.

Industrial Pendant Lights

A trio of vintage style metal pendant lights adds a subtle element of coastal life. “It’s lighting that’s kind of caged and looks like something you would find on a pier or on a dock,” said designer Brian Patrick Flynn.

Open and Balanced

A custom metal and wood stair rail in the hallway from the dining room keeps the space feeling open and balances against the whitewashed wood floors.

Stylish Security

A security system is also a part of HGTV Dream Home 2018.

Strong Lines

Large glass doors with black frames fill the space with light while also subtly referencing the homes dark exterior. Paired with the crisp white walls the effect is like eyeliner for the home while accentuating the beautiful views.

Midcentury Ambiance

This midcentury modern style light in the entry pays tribute to the home’s original 1970’s roots and provides plenty of light upon entry.

Everyday Art

Hanging art in unexpected places adds a playful feel to the entry space. A boot bin, umbrella basket and plenty of hooks keeps the entry organized and makes art of the everyday items you grab on the go.

Artful Combination

A concrete planter is a perfect modern home for snake plants. Paired with the modern black and white painting and whitewashed wood floors, this corner feels like a mini-modern art gallery as you enter the home.

Pastel Gallery

Clean white walls and whitewashed floors combine to make the perfect at home gallery. The soft pinks and blues found in the painting echo the color palette found in the rest of the great room.

Masculine Stair Rail

A custom metal and wood stair rail echoes the industrial accents found throughout the great room and dining room. The strong lines of the railing add texture and stand out against the whitewashed wood floors and vaulted white ceilings.

Open Concept

The open floor plan for the living area and dining space finds unity in the bright white color palette with sea green and pink accents. The soft colors draw focus on the real showstopper, floor-to-ceiling views of Puget Sound.
