HGTV Dream Home 2013

This may be the first time I'm saying this about an HGTV Dream Home: I actually like the outside living space more than I like the inside of the home. As I first browsed through the picture galleries of each of the inside spaces I wasn't very impressed. Yes, there is some great inspiration for designing and decorating, but I wasn't in love with any of the rooms. The outside is a different story. It looks so peaceful and relaxing and enclosed. It doesn't look there are neighbors nearby. It would be a true retreat home. It is described as a "Zen coastal cottage on Kiawah Island in South Carolina" (via).

Here are a few photos of the spaces I did like inside the Dream Home:

I love the seating in the entryway. The curtains make it even cozier and would be a comfy reading nook!
This is a clever storage idea for kitchen towels. Easily accessible, too.
I love the gray cabinets and white island. But, I am not loving the color of those chairs. I would have liked to see another pop of color instead.   

This is a corner of the great room. I love the use of the natural colors.
I like the open pantry and the fabric doors.
Master Bathroom
Master Bedroom: I like the two different side tables. The black one is a dresser and the blue is used as a desk, as well.
Love the single side table separating the beds.
I love turquoise, but this is too much turquoise! I like the two-toned walls, but the 4-poster bed should be another color. Hot pink would be fun!

And, here is why I love the outside space so much:

The exterior is gorgeous. A peaceful retreat! I love all of the palm trees surrounding the house.

This view is AMAZING!
This pool is luxurious, especially surrounded by the trees.
