Designer Brian Patrick Flynn had ambitious plans for the HGTV Urban Oasis 2018: “I wanted the house to have lots of color and be high energy, to play off its urban setting, but also feel really relaxing,” he says.

The original home, 106 years old, had a dilapidated interior. Brian gutted it and blew out the back to create a bigger living room and master bedroom, bringing the new home to approximately 2,050 square feet total. He went with a palette of green and blue “because they’re the most requested colors coast-to-coast,” he says. Each room boasts a blend of patterns, textures, and shapes, and combines traditional and more modern pieces. “Sure, there are touches of bold color inside and out, but it’s all balanced,” he says. “You get a little pep in your day-to-day routine, and a house that always looks fresh.” Just call it an oh!-asis.

With its gambrel roof and bright red door (Heartthrob by Sherwin-Williams), this Dutch Colonial Revival fits right in among the historic homes of the Hyde Park neighborhood in Cincinnati, OH—but it has oasis cred. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn painted the porch’s ceiling aqua (Reflecting Pool by Sherwin-Williams) and piled colorful pillows on the roomy sectional. The charcoal gray siding is painted Gibraltar by Sherwin-Williams.

It’s a design trifecta—airy (the French doors!), striking (that fireplace!), and cheerful (those colors!)—with a little secret. “The fireplace looks like old whitewashed brick, but it’s brick veneer,” says Brian. The emerald velvet Kardiel sofas were not meant to match the rug’s greens. As Brian says, “A slightly ‘off’ color makes all the difference between too perfect and perfectly lived in.” The circular tops and curved-rod bases of the Platner-style coffee tables from overstock.com offset the square-arm sofas. The walls are painted Halcyon Green by Sherwin-Williams.

A vaulted ceiling, windows galore: It was basically built to be a haven. “With all the natural light, I could have fun with color without overwhelming the space,” says Brian. The blues in the quilt (by Truly Soft), pillows, and Roman shades (made with Duralee fabric) echo the teal walls (Great Falls by Sherwin-Williams). Stylish yet simple furniture is the ideal match—there’s a white platform bed and sleek dressers topped with bubble glass lamps by Dimond Lighting.
