Cozy and Comfortable Seating

A three-seater sofa and two deep arm chairs provide comfortable seating in the multipurpose room, a flexible space that can be used for a variety of activities like watching an awards show, the big game, or your favorite HGTV special.

Watch a Movie

Comfortable armchairs have stacked sphere construction, distressed wood finish, and a removable seat cushion. The inviting chairs offer the perfect place to sit back and enjoy a classic movie on one of the room’s two smart TVs.

Natural Beauty

Framed wall art captures the natural beauty of a midnight blue wave, and works with the other blue details in the room and the coastal location of this well-detailed home.

Focal Point

An eight-light metal-and-glass shaded chandelier in an old bronze finish creates a focal point and illuminates the multipurpose room from above.

Sit and Relax

Two attractive 28-inch gray table lamps with an urn-shaped ceramic base flank the multipurpose room’s comfy three-seater sofa. The stylish sofa includes a solid wood frame, light gray upholstery, and assorted throw pillows for added comfort.

Modern Rustic Table

Made out of lacquered pine wood with and designed with X-braces, the multipurpose room’s handsome coffee table anchors the seating area and provides a spot to display favorite books and a touch of greenery.

Get Things Done

A palm branch and round basket as a catch-all for books and electronic devices sit atop the coffee table. You can check emails or catch up on the latest news online while enjoying the beauty of this Hilton Head Island, South Carolina home.

Cozy Extras

A hand-knotted wool green area rug adds softness under the seating area. A cozy cable knit plush throw blanket over the chair offers an easy way to keep warm when reading on chilly nights.

Local Flavor

Designer Brian Patrick Flynn and his team were at a local antique store and found the infrastructure for a wing from one of the planes that take off on the water in the area, and turned the special find into sculpture that hangs on the multipurpose room wall.

Clutter Free

The combination of open and closed storage in the multipurpose room’s two breakfast consoles helps keep the space clean and free from clutter.

Handsome Floor

The extra-wide plank engineered floor in the multipurpose room has a durable light brown tone and a warm rustic look.

Strategic Location

This view looking from the sofa shows the doorway with a set of barn doors that opens the multipurpose room to the landing outside, that connects this upstairs space to the two guest suites, attic and stairwell to the first floor of the home.

Sophisticated Storage

A breakfast console with two shelves and silver leaf offers sophisticated storage for multipurpose room essentials, placed under the two large TVs that sit on opposite walls.

TV Time

The multipurpose room’s two 50-inch TVs on the wall are on a swivel, so you can watch more than one game at a time. Sphere sculpture on top of the cabinet adds a nice touch of texture to the room.

Movie Night

Floor-to-ceiling drapes provide control over the level of light and privacy for the room, so the space can be closed off from the adjoining upstairs porch for movie night.

Color Contrast

The lighter white trim for the doorway pops against the greige walls of the multipurpose room, an area that adds flexible living space to this enchanting coastal property.

Comfortable Living

The programmable thermostat for the home’s advanced heating and cooling system offers total control over the environment, with personalized temperature settings for comfortable year-round living.

Must-Have Game Area

This view from the multipurpose room shows the upstairs gaming and lounge area on the second-floor landing, and the well-lit stairwell with chandelier that leads to this upper level of the home.

Gather Around

This gaming and lounging area includes a modern pedestal table with galvanized steel side chairs that include a dark navy-blue powder coated finish, streamlined Windsor back and a vented square seat.

Choice of Activities

Visitors can gather around the table to share a drink and conversation, or play at the nearby outdoor/indoor foosball table. The landing also includes framed wall art and an area rug hung on the wall with a hanging mechanism that designer Brian Patrick Flynn and his team created. The rug ties together all the different colors used for this part of the home.

Play Time

The sculptural and higher end indoor/outdoor foosball table includes a sloped playfield to keep the ball in play, raised corners and leveling boots.

Speedy Game

This close-up view of the foosball table shows the hand-painted players with splayed legs in the vintage Barcelona style, that allows for quicker and more finessed play.

Leisurely Lifestyle

This lounge area with gaming fits with the leisurely lifestyle of this special Hilton Head Island location, that mixes activities with rest and relaxation.

Plenty of Light

The beautiful windows in the multipurpose room flood this lounge area with lots of light, that also stays airy thanks to the windows on the other side of the home that brighten up the stairwell.

Color Change-Up

This inviting upper porch sits just off the multipurpose room, a space surrounded by beautiful live oak trees. “This ceiling is a little bit more periwinkle and we did it on purpose just to break it up and give it its own identity,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.

Special Space

This exterior view of the upper porch shows the architectural details that bring this special upper level outdoor space of the home to the next level.

Ample Seating

Circular blue and brown outdoor sofas provide ample seating for casual get-togethers, with a modular design and wicker/rattan frame.

Cool Down

An eight-blade outdoor ceiling fan with metal body and remote helps keep the space cool on warm days and nights.

Protected Porch

The deck surface of the upstairs porch includes composite decking with a special waterproofing system underneath, in case some rain gets in.

Versatile Coffee Table

A round brown coffee table complements the curved lines of the sofas, provides a spot to rest drinks and snacks, and decorates the space with a touch of greenery.

Easy Clean Sofas

The two three-piece circular blue and brown outdoor sectional sofas include seat and back cushions with zippers for easy removal for washing.

Tranquil Feel

The native live oaks trees with Spanish moss that surround the property add a tranquil feel to this upstairs porch, where guests can gather and linger on warm days and nights.

Good Flow

The circular design of the outdoor sofas creates a nice conversation area and welcoming feel, and make it easy to move around the space and enjoy the stunning views.

Indoor/Outdoor Feel

Insulated French doors painted white connect the multipurpose room to the upper porch outside, providing an easy way to move from space to space.

Above It All

Build manager Scott Branscom says this upper porch offers the best view from the house, and the chance to soak in the stunning location of this Hilton Head Island, South Carolina property.
