One of the things I look forward to at the beginning of each new year is seeing the HGTV Dream Home.
Some years I love them and some years I wonder what in the world they were thinking (ha).
Their Dream Home 2013 is a “Low Country Zen cottage nestled along verdant marshland on Kiawah Island in South Carolina.”
Take a look!
Above the fireplace are two 150-pound gates from an architectural salvage store in Charleston. “It was a story of scale, trying to find something very interesting, very bold for the fireplace,”designer Linda Woodrum says. “And they just were perfect.”
The pantry…which would never look this nice if my family lived there unless I stashed all the cans of soup and bags of chips, etc., on the bottom shelves.
Last year’s Dream Home 2012 in Utah was nice but it had mostly grays and browns and muddy colors that didn’t do much for me. This year’s went in the opposite direction — lots of color here.
One lucky winner will get this fully furnished vacation home,
a GMC Acadia Denali SUV, and $500,000 to help cover the taxes.
