Friends, today take a walk through HGTV® Dream Home 2017 with me as I share all the beautiful details of this renovated 1980s home in St. Simons Island, Georgia, plus all the amazing details for your chance to WIN this home!

My recent trip was filled with amazing people, delicious food, and I’m still pinching myself that I was invited to be one of the few to take a peek inside this home, and share it with my readers.

As we drove through the streets of the peaceful neighborhood on St. Simons Island, surrounded by palm oak trees and wide-open lots, we were all so excited, approaching the HGTV Dream Home, knowing we were going to be getting a full tour from designer Brian Patrick Flynn!

The property around the house had complementing and contrasting, perfectly arranged pavers, that transitioned between walkway and driveway. And the palm tree? I loved the coastal feel before I even set foot in the home!

But first, did you know that the HGTV Dream Home prize package includes a new Honda Pilot and $250,000?!

Welcomed by a beautiful over-sized double wood front door, the minute we walked through the beautiful entryway, we immediately felt at home in the relaxing living room.

What was once a stucco wall, with closed-off rooms in yellow and brown, we learned they knocked a wall down to create this gorgeous open space, so warm and welcoming! And as cozy as a sweater rug! ❤

I fell in love with the glamorous chandelier, the barn door made from longleaf pine, with a weathered look, and the wood-clad ceiling covered with cypress boards.

We plopped right down with a cocktail to relax on the Burch Lane sofa, surrounded by natural wood furniture.

The living room opens up to the kitchen. My friend, Dorothy, did a great recap of the kitchen.

I loved how simple it was, for easy hosting (a center island).

With CABINETS TO GO (platinum gray), pulls and handles wrapped in green leather, crackle-finish green clay tiles for backsplash, and my favorite solid surface countertops made of cement soil and crushed oyster shells and clamshells- tinted green!

My friend Myriam happened to be standing in the perfect place when I took this picture on my iPhone. Just look at those cool birch-and-steel stools!

Right next to the living space and kitchen is the formal entertaining room.

My favorite room in the house, as a lover of dinner parties! (LOVE this rug!)

Come to find out, this room was Brian’s favorite room as well.

Out the back of the kitchen and living room is the most peaceful, calm backyard.

Here we enjoyed several meals together.

It’s such a great party house, with a pool made in the shape of the state of Georgia. How clever is that?

It also had charming walkways, separate patios, a gourmet outdoor kitchen, and different conversation areas for mingling with friends.

We enjoyed lunch down on the lakefront. This property is an outdoor oasis, so relaxing, decked out with Trex Outdoor furniture, and Trex decking, shaded by a white pergola, with open canopy.

So relaxing!

Did I mention there’s a house for Haggis, our Cairn terrier? Oh, the cutest HGTV Doggie Dream Home, a place to call his own. Haggis would love this house!

The utility looked like this. PERFECT. So much room to get organized, right off the garage!

Let’s talk bathrooms. With such a coastal flair and the blue theme throughout the house, the first guest bathroom had beautiful textures with a gorgeous shower! Delta fixtures shone throughout the house. This room included the H2OKinetic (which I have in my home, thank you Delta!), with everything in a champagne bronze finish.

The bathroom off the “pool/lounge” a very southern styled design, with rich blue, cheerful botanical wallpaper, and basketweave tiles in the shower.

Then there was the guest room “make a statement,” aqua blue bathroom! I loved the brightness, the polished nickel, and again, the Delta In2ition H2Okinetic with 3 settings! And those hydrangeas (be still my heart).

The master bath, with blue-gray shiplap, had such a fresh feel. I could see myself soaking in the Roman tub with Delta tub filler, gazing on? a beautiful private oasis of greenery outside. So relaxing!

Ready for the Master Suite? I could live in this room alone!

The rich shades of navy blue and white, and again, the coastal theme coming through, with a platform bed, and wingback headboard.

How clever, the leather-wrapped lamps, and special conversation area overlooking the backyard and pool area. There is a separate door from the master to the pool area, too. That is perfect!

And wait … there’s more … the walk-in closet is part of the guest suite!

The indoor pool lounge/family room had a feel of its own. Comfy, a great place to entertain, indoors and out, because you can open wide the glass sliding doors to the great outdoors.

The side bedroom was bright and cheery, with a workout room around the corner. Loved the way they stacked the books – so clever!
