The HGTV Dream Home 2020- You Could Win this Amazing Home!
Last week, thanks to my friends at Cabinets To Go and HGTV, I had the opportunity to attend two events at the HGTV Dream Home 2020 in Hilton Head, SC. This was the first time that I have been able to see the Dream Home in person, and it was quite the experience! As you may know by now, I partnered with Cabinets To Go on the renovation of my own kitchen (reveal later this month!), and they have been an absolute dream to work with and fit perfectly in line with my blog. I can’t say enough good things about them as a company and product. If you want to create your own dream home but don’t think you have the budget, you definitely need to check them out. Cabinets To Go was a sponsor of this year’s HGTV Dream Home and provided all of the cabinetry in the kitchen, mudroom, and bathrooms. As you will soon see, one of these bathrooms is actually my favorite room in the entire house. Today I am going to take you on a tour of the HGTV Dream Home 2020 in Hilton Head, and also share some snippets from our trip. Since this trip was in early January, and Emmy turns 13 later this week, I took her as my “plus one” and we had an amazing mother daughter trip. Emmy fell in love with this home and location and is now entering us twice a day to win, but don’t worry… you can also enter twice a day here. If you win, can we come visit?

The first photo I shared in this post was the back yard, which is an entertainer’s paradise with a small pool, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and beautiful marsh views one could soak in from the many back decks or hammock. The above photo is the front yard, which is just as beautiful. As you can see, you can actually see straight from the front door through to the outside. By the way, this home lies nestled in a safe gated community.
As it turns out, my very favorite paint company, Sherwin-Williams, was the paint sponsor for this house. It was really interesting to hear how the home’s designer, Brian Patrick Flynn, had to work strictly within one paint palette and create every space in this house from one that one palette, which is very South Carolina/beach inspired. Let’s take a look inside! (By the way, I never got to meet Brian in person, but he did start following me on instagram and I feel like I have arrived! His personal style is amazing and I love his use of neutrals- this home is much more colorful than his own. Also during his speech he mentioned that he’s 43, so I am hoping he shares his skin care secrets.)
Just on the other side of that front door sits a beautiful large bright Fundamental White entry, filled with art that brings the colors of the home together. And how amazing is that canoe mounted on the wall?
I absolutely love the paint by number vibes of this painting in the entry. There was also a lot of plant life in this home, and you know I love that!
SHOP THE ENTRY:
One of my favorite features of this home is that it is open concept without being too open. The entry opens into the living room which opens to the kitchen and dining room, but those can’t be seen from the entry which is really nice. There are some definite separations which I prefer.
Below is the living room, and I wanted to share this view so you could see how it opens to the entry. but still offers a little privacy.
All of the rooms have beautifully painted ceilings (here it is Mint to Be), and stunning ceiling fans from Wayfair. This one is no longer available, but it is huge and fits the modern coastal vibe.
My absolute favorite element in this space is the tabby fireplace which is made with a mixture of seashells. You can read more about it here.
Hanging on the fireplace facade is scale art that was created by Kyle at Rustic Nail. As you can see, all of the art was carefully curated.
SHOP THE LIVING ROOM:
The living room is really the center of the downstairs, opening to the entry, back deck, and kitchen, and backing up to the master bedroom. This shot is taken from the kitchen looking into the living room, and just off to the right is the dining room.
Isn’t that wall dreamy? Between the gorgeous cabinets that run all the way to the ceiling, the stunning hardware, and that insane tile, this kitchen is a chef’s dream.
There is another wall, obviously, but I somehow missed grabbing a photo since there were always people milling around.
SHOP THE KITCHEN:
Just off the kitchen is the dining room, and I love the nautical without being cheesy vibes it has from the awesome rope pendant, to the clever mirror collection.
SHOP THE DINING ROOM:
Off of the kitchen sits the laundry room/mudroom which is one of my favorite spaces in this home.
I am absolutely in love with that tile wall- are you? And these are again the Charleston cabinets from Cabinets To Go, but in Linen.
This room features a laundry area as well, which is so pretty.
And what pet wouldn’t love their own hideaway that is also a convenient sideboard. I mean, how fancy is this set up?
SHOP THE MUDROOM/ LAUNDRY ROOM:
Also on this side of the main floor is a cute coral powder room, but I didn’t get a photo. On the opposite side of the main floor is the ground floor master suite. Emmy’s favorite piece of art in the house stood at the entry to this wing.
The master bedroom is a fan favorite amongst all of the bloggers that were at the events, and I am sure you can see why. Color was done so beautifully here.
This room featured lots of natural elements such as bamboo, wicker, and driftwood. One little detail I really loved about every room is that the books were carefully chosen to coordinate with the space.
SHOP THE MASTER BEDROOM:
Now, let’s head into my absolute favorite room in this entire 3500 square foot beauty of a home… the master bathroom! This room features the Chelsea cabinets from Cabinets To Go in Linen with gold hardware, striking patterned tile, and gold lighting from Wayfair, and bath hardware and fixtures from Delta.
Looking at the other side of the room, you can also see the beautiful blush coral color called Romance that was used in this space… you know I loved that as well as that giant modern piece of art.
Now let’s head upstairs where at the top of the stairs sits a large landing that featured a foosball table and game table. I could see my kids loving this space so much!
How awesome is that modern foosball table? Something like that would be well-loved in our home without being an eyesore!
SHOP THE LANDING:
Directly behind the landing sits a great rec room/lounge space I could totally see my kids hanging out in all day.
Again, the art selected for this room has so much character.
I don’t really know what this piece is on the wall, but I imagine it’s some sort of nautical thing. 🙂
This space also featured two televisions, and the coolest connect four game I have ever seen.
SHOP THE LOUNGE:
Off the back of this space is a balcony. I love that this home offers so much space to lounge outdoors.
Upstairs also features two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. Emmy already claimed this one as her bedroom.
SHOP THIS BEDROOM:
The bathroom off of this space is a beautiful blend of blue and white with a touch of green and wood in the art. These cabinets are the Metro White cabinets I had also considered for my own kitchen. They have such a sleek and modern vibe.
On the other side of the house sits the other upstairs bedroom. Emmy and I decided this would be Wilder’s bedroom, and Sawyer would get a bed in the lounge area which is what he’d want anyhow. 😉
SHOP THIS BEDROOM:
This bedroom also had its own beautiful bathroom featuring the Metro White cabinets as well. And look at that ceiling! And the mirror!
The outdoor space in the back of the house is utterly amazing. Everyone tended to wander out there because it was just such an great space to hang out and talk. There’s a perfect sized pool (I loved the white balls in it!).
Behind the pool sits an awesome fire pit. I would love to hang out and roast marshmallows here! As you can also see, there’s a hammock hanging in the trees, and beautiful views of the marshland.
This next space, I assume, would be Chris’ favorite. He has always dreamed of an outdoor kitchen.
SHOP THE OUTDOOR AREAS:
Before we leave the house, let me tell you that there are a couple of spaces I didn’t get photos of, like the garage with golf cart, the decks, the front as well as the Honda, the powder room, large walk in closets, and the hallways. There was SO MUCH to take in!
What do you think of this house? Could you see yourself here? It was interesting to hear Brian speak about the house, because the goal is that anyone could see themselves here and want to enter to win. It had to target millennials, but also those who are retiring… pretty much anyone in any demographic. Emmy and I both easily pictured ourselves living here. She was already looking to see where the schools were located. She’s feeling pretty lucky. Are you? If so, don’t miss out on your chance to cash in on that luck by entering to win this house, a Honda Passport Elite, all the furnishings, and $250k!!!!! All of that could be yours! (or mine.)
I wanted to also share a little bit about my own experience while I was in Hilton Head. As I mentioned, I had my sidekick with me. Here we are on the shuttle to attend the HGTV Brunch of Dreams with several other bloggers. (And in case you are wondering, I made sure I wore thrifted clothes while I was there).
The brunch was hosted by HGTV and Brian Patrick Flynn, the designer, was there to speak about the house. The event was catered with delicious brunch spread and beverages. Emmy was pretty much in love with the waffle bar.
After the brunch was over, Emmy and I decided to hit some local thrift shops and found some great deals I’ll be sharing with you. We had a blast shopping and discovering some new places that our new local friend, Celia, recommended. Then we headed to a little appetizer and beverage event my friend Beth invited me to. We had fun chatting with other bloggers then headed out to grab dinner. We tried the Sandbar and it was OK in my opinion, but Emmy was pretty happy with her ribs.
After that we went to our hotel and crashed! Well, I crashed, and Emmy stayed up a bit. We had gotten up super early to hit the road at 6 am that morning to make it in time for the brunch so I was beat.
The next morning I got up and ran on the hotel treadmill. I would have loved to have run around the island, but I wanted to stay nearby in case Emmy needed me. You know, in case there was an alligator emergency or something. Anyhow, we had some breakfast, and again hit some thrift shops that we missed the day before. Emmy wasn’t feeling well, but it wasn’t yet time to check into our next hotel (the one we were staying in with Cabinets To Go). I ended up calling the hotel and asking if we might be able to get in early and they were SO nice and welcoming. Emmy was able to stay in our beautiful and huge room at the Omni while I headed to the Cabinets To Go event at the house. She and I are both forever grateful to the Omni!
While she rested, I met up with all of the other Cabinets To Go bloggers and we shuttled over to the dream home where delicious appetizers and fancy cocktails awaited. After the holidays, I decided to do dry January, so I didn’t partake, but look at these drinks! All the other ladies told me they were fabulous.
Several of us accidentally coordinated with our black and boots attire…
I had so much fun hanging out with these girls! That evening we headed to dinner at Alexander’s with Cabinets To Go. I want to especially thank Gracie who has been my main contact at Cabinets To Go from the very beginning and she was such a gracious hostess to all of us. Dinner was incredible, and the chef especially took a liking to Emmy and brought her dinner of chicken fingers and fruit out in a beautiful presentation. He also brought her chocolate ice cream with whipped cream for dessert. She was thrilled!
The entire trip was a total whirlwind of a couple days, seeing the home, getting to know my friends at Cabinets To Go in person, and revisiting with old blogging friends as well as making new ones. Hilton Head is a beautiful place and I could see why anyone would want to live there. As you can see, the HGTV dream home is a beautiful home in a stunning location and whoever wins is one lucky duck. Don’t forget to enter to win here. With a full heart, thank you to my friends at Cabinets To Go for partnering with me this year, and inviting me to be a part of this special event. Thank you also to my friends at HGTV for inviting me to attend the brunch as well. I am so grateful for this opportunity and chance to get away with my daughter. It’s an experience neither of us will ever forget.
I’ve gathered what I have from the home for your shopping convenience here:
