Every year, the HGTV Dream Home reveals some of the most beautiful living spaces and picture-perfect properties across exotic locales in the United States. This year, HGTV’s ‘Dream Home 2020’ takes its ante up with its 24th Dream Home. For 2020, HGTV takes you to the massive 3500 square foot Southern-style home in Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.

For the New Year special, host Tamara Day and designer and architect, Brian Patrick Flynn, take you through the massive property and what goes behind making a home the ultimate ‘Dream Home’.

Apart from the technical constructional elements et al, Flynn tells us the colors that would be more prominent this year. While scouting Lowe’s for paints, tiles, etc. for the house, he picks a muted blue, which sits in perfectly with the coastal theme and tropic-like surroundings of the property.

Flynn and Day test out two shades of blue on the exterior and finally decide to go with Flynn’s original choice. The exterior walls with white woodwork and grey-toned stones for driveway, sits perfectly with the environment and the location of the house.

Though the idea is to keep the overall vibe relaxed, both Flynn and Day believe that a little addition of brighter colors will boost the mood of the home. The interiors go a notch brighter and bolder with ethereal organic hues, oceanic colors, and more. Flynn chooses tropical green, albeit in pastel shades and muted tones, pinks, and blues for the room interiors and their design accents.

But blue (and its various shades) appears to be the predominant color of the season. The patio furniture has cobalt and dusty blue furnishings, while there’s a touch of teal and aquamarine for living area. The bedrooms might have coral as their dominating tones (which was Pantone’s color of the year for 2019), but blue décor accents like a rug or throw pillows keep with the overall design harmony. Also, the bathrooms are visibly coastal, with two contrasting shades of marine blue.

As declared by HGTV, the Pantone 2020 Color of the year is Classic Blue — a very rich, dreamy, and ethereal shade of azure. When combined with other hues of blue, or contrasted with brighter, perkier tones, they can be very chic, as Flynn proved for the ‘Dream Home’.

When Day and Flynn wrapped up the finishing touches and all construction work, we finally had a home which is not just spectacular to look at, with its coastal theme and trendy design, but also has all the architectural aesthetics. And thus, the Windmill Harbor home looks more than perfect for how a ‘Dream Home’ should be.

The sweepstakes for 'Dream Home 2020' will run through 5pm ET on February 19. The contest winner will be featured on the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway Special 2020, coming in May 2020.
