Interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn has taken a formerly dated home and transformed it into a ruggedly elegant waterfront escape with a design aesthetic best described as "livable modernism." Situated on a quiet and historic peninsula with unobstructed views of Puget Sound as the backdrop, the fully remodeled tri-level 1970s contemporary home maintains a coastal and casual look that embodies Pacific Northwest style and places a strong emphasis on natural materials.
"Gig Harbor is truly the kind of place that dreams are made of, and we know our fans are going to be captivated by this town's uncommon beauty, rich heritage and love of all things water," said Ron Feinbaum, General Manager of HGTV Home Promotions. "In concert with builder Choice Construction and architect Eric Gedney, we have created a thoroughly modern residence with design inspiration to spare that represents the very best of what it means to be an HGTV Dream Home."
The house has four bedrooms and three and a half baths and sits on property packed with lush evergreens. It is characterized by angular, asymmetrical architecture and a unique mashup of rugged, coastal and modern materials. Its updated maritime interior is outfitted with soothing shades of gray pulled from the moody landscape seen through the home's wealth of picture windows, which provide stunning views from almost every room. The contemporary architecture of the house is softened with expert layering of textures, colors, patterns and shapes to add warmth and personality.
