HEARTH & HOME HGTV Dream Home 2018 A s the setting for the 22nd edition of HGTV  Dream Home, Gig Harbor, Washington, offers picturesque scenery, a quaint mix of old and new, and a lifestyle that centers around its maritime history. The winner of the grand prize package, valued at over $1.8 million, will receive the completely remodeled and fully furnished home, a new Honda Accord, plus $250,000 from national mortgage lender, Quicken Loans. The formerly dated, 3,500-square-foot house has been transformed by interior designer  Brian Patrick Flynn  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 1970s fully remodeled, tri-level 52 GAZELLE STL contemporary home maintains a coastal and casual look that embodies Pacific Northwest style, and places a strong emphasis on natural materials. With four bedrooms and three and a half baths, the house sits on property packed with lush evergreens. 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. The official entry period for the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2018 runs through Friday, Feb. 16. The sneak peek at this striking, one-of-a-kind makeover, as well as official rules, are available at hgtv.com.
