OUR HGTV DREAM HOUSE 2018 VIP TOUR

I spent a quintessential Pacific Northwest day in Gig Harbor touring the 2018 HGTV Dream Home. Brian Patrick Flynn did an amazing job designing the home around the selected Sherwin Williams palette. Infusing the soft pastel colors of the coastal area and proving black is the new grey for exteriors. I'm obsessed with the clean lines and modern approach on this remodel. Have you entered to win this dream home? If not, what are you waiting for! Did I mention you can enter for a chance to win twice daily! Click HERE to read the official rules to enter and check out HGTV.com to watch the amazing transformation of this waterfront home.

Sweeping views

This dreamy coastal retreat sits on the shores of the Puget Sound in a quiet neighborhood on a hillside. Can you see yourself pulling into this view every day? I sure can!

HGTV Dream Home 2018 - Master Bathroom Tub Detail.jpg

Coastal master bathroom

Light, bright and full of white, I was tempted to run myself a luxurious bath as soon as I entered this gorgeous master bathroom suite. I adored the the charming touches of jute, driftwood and marble. 

 The homemade DIY granola Chef Edouardo taught us was one of my favorite highlights. Who knew it was so simple to make and prepare your own yogurt?!

Guest bedroom

Every bedroom has a color scheme that had every influencer in attendance oohing and awwing! I loved the lush simplicity of the accessories, the crispness of the muted tones and layered linens.

I walked around the property and snapped this shot on my way back up from the waterfront. View our Instagram stories for a behind the scene look! I love the exterior of this home!

Local artist, Celery Jones did a phenomenal job on the custom large-scale artwork throughout the house. She tapped in to the essence of the Pacific Northwest and the surrounding wildlife.
