Along the Water’s Edge

The backyard of this year’s HGTV Dream Home overlooks Puget Sound. The deck and pergola provide a seamless outdoor living area for friends and family to enjoy breathtaking sunsets.

Dining Al Fresco

The outdoor dining table seats up to ten people by combining benches and modern, black outdoor dining chairs. The outdoor living space is the perfect spot to entertain or enjoy a relaxing family dinner on the water.

Custom Outdoor Shades

The pergola includes shades that open and close to give you a break from the sun as you need it.

Mixed Seating

Combining modern, black dining chairs with gray benches keeps the seating versatile and dynamic. The relaxed and inviting space makes it easy to kick back and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Seaside Serenity

Adjustable shades above the dining area means fun in the sun no matter the time of day.

All Weather Design

Gray benches match the decking and tie the space to the neutral tones found in the interior of the home. Plus, the durable material means the space will withstand the rainy weather and salty air on Puget Sound.

Stylish Storage

These multipurpose benches include pull out storage space to keep extra pillows and blankets safe when storms roll in. Extra storage makes it easy to keep extra plates and glasses at hand when neighbors stop by for a visit.

Graceful Getaway

The large industrial-style table provides the perfect spot to entertain and relax with family and friends.

Whitewashed Sophistication

Gray decking outside echoes the whitewashed wood floors found inside the home. Ocean elements and constant rain are no match for this decking that can withstand the salty sea air of Puget Sound.

Quiet Solitude

The outdoor dining area provides shade from the sun and privacy from the neighbors while the glass and railing add a modern touch without obstructing the view of Henderson Bay.

Coastal Calm

The glass and railing around the pergola patio is the same as the railing used upstairs off the kitchen. Simple and streamlined, this railing keeps the emphasis on what’s most important, the waterfront.

All Weather Decking

Composite decking on the stairs is durable and looks fresh in modern gray.

Seamless Sunsets

It’s easy to enjoy the sunset from the patio with glass and minimal framework on the railing. This clean, modern design was chosen to make the most of the stunning surroundings.

Lush Privacy

A cozy fire pit seating area is tucked into the opposite end of the property. Thoughtful landscaping keeps the space feeling private but open to the waterfront view.

Geometric Stonework

Gray stone pavers in a subtle geometric pattern lead to the fire pit. Using contrasting stone to line the walkway defines the space and gives it a finished touch.

Outdoor Hearth

The stone fire pit provides the perfect spot to start your day over coffee while enjoying the coastal view. Extra seating means there is always a chair for friends and family to join.

Modern Seating

Modern chairs in a subtle gray complement the stone patio work. A warm gray and ivory throw adds warmth for chilly nights.

Naturally Stylish

Elegant landscaping adds life to the fire pit area while the stone work on the walls and stone pavers echo the area’s natural beauty.

Modern Outdoor Living

From the floor-to-ceiling windows to the patio and fire pit areas, the backyard of HGTV Dream Home 2018 keeps the focus on the waterfront views. Using gray decking and gray stone pavers connect the outdoor living areas and complement the charcoal and black exterior color palette of the house.

Rustic Canine Paradise

Even the dog house gets a modern makeover with wood siding accented by metal trim and framework. Native plants create a living roof that ties Fido’s abode to the natural surroundings.

Contemporary Updates

Painting the home black and using charcoal as an accent color on the trim work gives this 1970’s home a modern facelift. The dark colors also highlight the windows and highlight the home’s striking angles and roofline.

Charcoal Accents

Using glass and gray framing for the deck railing looks seamless against the dark exterior of the home without interrupting the view.

Year-Round Outdoor Kitchen

The covered outdoor kitchen means it’s always a good time to grill even if it’s a typical rainy Pacific Northwest day. An open seating area with roomy Adirondack chairs and coffee table keeps the focus on outdoor living.

Gray Stone Accents

Large, gray stone tiles add a polished finished to the floor of the outdoor kitchen while tying the space visually to other outdoor seating areas.

Geometric Medley

Gray and white pillows with an intricate geometric pattern add a soft accent to the covered seating area. A charcoal poof doubles as a side table or extra seating depending on the size of the crowd.

Stylish Stone Workspace

Stacked stone around the grill echoes the patio stonework and creates a custom workspace for prepping meals or serving cocktails.

Shaded Outdoor Retreat

The Midcentury modern coffee table is inviting with the addition of a potted fern while Adirondack chairs create a relaxing spot to lounge. Gray tones throughout the space feel clean and streamlined.

Modern Magic

Sunsets are sweeter from the back deck of this reimagined 1970’s home. Modern upgrades enhance the home’s architectural angles and additional outdoor seating from the pergola dining area to the covered outdoor kitchen make it easy to entertain and enjoy the beauty of the Northwest year-round.

Iconic Transformation

The home takes on added drama at night as interior lighting highlights sweeping windows and the steep, asymmetrical roofline.
