I got the chance to tour the 2020 HGTV Dream Home in Hilton Head, SC, and I’m taking you along with!

2020 HGTV dream home house tour and video tour

Get ready for PICTURE OVERLOAD — I have a house tour full of pictures for you, so I apologize in advance if this page takes a hot second to load.n

I’ve always wanted to tour an HGTV home (Dream Home, Smart Home, etc.) ever since I started blogging and reading design blogs. Pinch me, because I actually got to do it this year!

I was invited for the day to Hilton Head, SC. I’ve been to HHI many times, but never for something like this! I wanted to make the most of my time there, so I took video of every room and tried my best to photograph every little nook I found interesting. There is a LOT to take in, and I don’t even feel like I did it justice, but I tried my best!

For the video tour, you can play the video below or check it out on YouTube.

I’m going to keep my comments to a minimum for now, mainly because there are just SO MANY PHOTOS and I didn’t even capture everything (I certainly tried!). So, I’ll let you peruse this whole tour for today and create a separate post about my specific favorite details (and ideas for how to incorporate this inspiration in your own home).

Take a Look at the 2020 HGTV Dream Home in Hilton Head, SC

As you’ll see from all the photos below, this home had tall ceilings and an open flow that blended the interior and exterior spaces together. It practically pulled you outside to enjoy the warm weather at every turn!

The kitchen was one of the trickier areas to photograph because of the number of people walking around (there was also a catering team set up with drinks and snacks). So, I’m sharing this photo from Shoreline Construction, who built this lovely home!

Mudroom/laundry room

Easily one of the most interesting multi-function rooms in the house. And WAY larger than any laundry room I’ve ever seen before!

In case you were wondering, I believe the artist for these paintings (several were all around the home in the same style) is from Colleen Elizabeth Art.

You may recognize that print — I used the same one to make my shower curtain in my primary bath!

Before I knew it, it was back in the car to drive home (the trip was basically a 5-hour drive, 2 hour tour, sleep, 5-hour drive home type of thing!). But I’m SO glad I went and got to cross this off my bucket list. It was a really nice way to kick off 2020 (especially since less than a week later — aka, this past weekend — there was a water line break in my front yard; I’ll be posting about that soon, ha!). :)

I hope you enjoyed the tour, friends! I’d love to hear your favorite part! I don’t currently know sources of most of what I saw (yet), but if you ask in the comments, I’ll try to find the information for you and create a source list!

Paint Colors

It looks to me like the color palette came from the Sherwin-Williams “Simply Blissful” Color Collection, including the 2020 Color of the Year:

  • Lots of accessories, lighting fixtures, decor, beds, chairs, etc. (even the floating balls in the water!) are from Wayfair; HGTV listed some of the specific products here, but it doesn’t look like a complete resource list.

    1. My guess is maybe Shaw Floors? They are listed as an HGTV sponsor and they appear to have patterned porcelain tiles on their website. It’s just a guess, so if I find out a definitive answer, I’ll be sure to update!
