Well? Have you watched HGTV’s annual Dream Home Give Away?
Every year J & I watch HGTV’s Dream Home show on New Year’s day and discuss every room, every feature, and discuss what changes we’d make if we won the home.
This year’s home is located in beautiful coastal Kiawah Island, S.C. I’ve visited Kiawah Island and Charleston on a couple occasions and have fallen in love with the Southern coastal lifestyle that the cities have to offer. I will definitely be voting numerous times for the 2013 Dream Home Give Away.
I am not a huge fan of Zen design, but I do love the coastal elements of the home. The setting with marsh views is simply amazing.

Dining Room (I am not a fan of the citron color used so extensively downstairs, but color can be easily changed.)
Master Bedroom (I love the geometric patterned rug.)
Powder Room (Citron used in small amounts is A-OK with me. I do love the horizontal stripes. I have always believed that one should “go wild” in the powder room.)
Butler’s Pantry (I love this area and wish I could recreate this one. I adore the demijohns.)
Loft (I love this space, but I do not like the artwork--- not my taste at all. There are many more Low Country selections to choose.)
Bunk niche (My fave part of the bunk room are the rope handles used on the drawers. Perfect!)
Guest Suite (This was my favorite overall room. I like the classic, traditional details that will never go out of style. Timeless. Elegant.)
Guest Suite Bath

So, what did YOU think of this year’s home?
Here are a few of my favorite things:
Seashell encrusted urns (Though I think they’d be in my way in the kitchen, I love them.)
Sea fan artwork
Metal Charleston Gate
Dresser (I like one or two pieces of painted furniture.)
Mercury Glass Jars
Trusses & Bell Jar Lighting
And that View
