Casual Connection

A casual seating area incorporating natural textures and pops of blue anchors the great room and provides space to connect with family and friends.

Bright and Botanical

The bright and airy great room is brought to life with a mix of indoor plants and greenery that add botanical elements into this relaxing space.

Textural Focal Point

Textured artwork flanks the fireplace wall and creates a focal point to draw the eye up and enhance how large the living space feels.

Calm and Cool

A 10-foot industrial white ceiling fan is a must have for Lowcountry living where warm weather is a year-round affair. The fan’s style plays off the x-frame base of the white coffee table to unify the room’s design from top to bottom.

Custom Cabinets

Built-in cabinets with louvered doors bring a dash of island style to the space and add much needed additional storage.

Island Texture

The textured artwork hung above the fireplace plays off the floor-to-ceiling tabby finish of the wall. Tabby, a mix of concrete and crushed shells, is frequently used in Lowcountry design and adds a unique, beachy texture to the room.

Coastal Color Palette

Layering tones of tan, white and blue throughout the room echo the colors found on the beach and the natural beauty of the home’s coastal location.

Seamless Security

Home security is available at the touch of a button. HGTV Dream Home 2020 comes fully equipped with a state-of-the-art home security system that seamlessly connects with your tablet or phone.

Built-In Gallery

Custom-built shelving above the built-in cabinets creates the perfect spot for a selection of coastal artwork and simple accessories that add texture and warmth to the room.

Organic Accents

Natural textures including wood, shells and greenery combine with artwork depicting the area’s coastal beauty to highlight the organic beauty found throughout the Lowcountry.

Seaside Textures

Choosing artwork that plays off the natural texture of the fireplace’s Tabby finish creates dynamic layers that keep the eye moving and add depth to the seating area.

An Element of Water

Accents throughout the home bring an element of water into the design from artwork depicting beaches and estuaries to cool colors that pop against neutral sand tones.

Personalized Design

Adding built-in cabinets and shelving to the great room provides plenty of space to display personal photos and artwork to create a personal connection within the design.

Navy Seating

The deep blue tone of the sofa adds a masculine depth to this bright and airy living space.

Let There Be Light

A large wall of windows and doors flood the room with light and connect the space to the outdoors while neutral tones of tan and white keep the room feeling open and airy.

Flexible Entertaining

Doors open from the great room to an adjacent patio that can accommodate more people or just open up the space to the great outdoors.

Garden Accents

A garden stool with a unique blue finish creates a perfect side table while bringing an outdoor element into the indoor living space.

Porch Traditions

Painting the ceiling of the great room Carolina blue is a thoughtful nod to the local tradition of painting porch ceilings blue to keep evil spirits away. Adding the color to the room’s ceiling plays with this tradition while also adding a pop of color that connects with the other blue elements in the space.

Coastal Inspiration

The great room’s open floor plan is anchored by the tabby-style fireplace wall and relaxed seating area. A seagrass area rug grounds the chairs and sofa while the Carolina blue ceiling adds an unexpected pop of color to the room.

Elevating the Everyday

Exceptionally high ceilings in the foyer create the perfect backdrop for mounting a boat as a piece of art. Using everyday items as artwork can add an unexpected focal point and tie the room’s design to the area’s outdoor amenities.

Rustic Yet Refined

Rustic wood floors reflect light throughout the space and keep things feeling bright and open.

Feminine Frill

A trio of mirrors add a feminine design element to this bright and stylish room.

Open for Entertaining

The great room of HGTV Dream Home 2020 opens to the adjacent kitchen creating an open floor plan that makes entertaining a breeze.

Simply Calm

A neutral island with ample seating connects the kitchen to the great room and echoes the style and design of the adjacent seating area with natural tones and coastal blues.

Creating Colorful Connections

The long line of the kitchen island draws the eye to the great room’s seating area and fireplace. Using similar tones and colors in both spaces unifies the design and keeps the eye moving seamlessly through the open floor plan.

Cool and Relaxing

The cool and relaxing colors of this spacious and inviting room makes it the perfect place to unwind with friends and family and take in the natural Lowcountry beauty surrounding HGTV Dream Home 2020.
