Assorted pillows and a duvet cover add comfort and coziness on the top of the bed. “The bedding is all different shades of white and green and yellow, like you’d find in a palm tree,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
An unadorned dresser keeps a low profile at the foot of the bed and makes room for a mounted flat-screen. Below, a knobbly area rug anchors the space, while sheer window panels soften the bright windows.
Getaways are all about comfort and here, the lounging begins before guests even get through the door. The white, wood furniture pops against the dark gravel of the driveway and the moody color of the lodge itself. As Pflug says, “The color story here started with the outside of the building. I knew I wanted to paint it a kind of dark, off-black color. It looks so amazing next to the greens of nature. Everything else just came from there.”
Part of his solution was to fill the space with art. This very vertical gallery wall accents the room’s high ceilings while giving additional space to Chris’ art collection. Chris underscores the importance of his collection, saying, “The artwork in my flat all has very personal meaning. Some were gifted to me by artist friends directly or were gifts for friends that I loved so much that I had them made for me too.”
Classic blue and white influences HGTV Dream Home 2020 in both its everyday and holiday style. To up the coziness of the winter season, look for pillows in chunky knits, lots of fringe and major tactile appeal.
The homeowners outfitted the space with a super comfortable low-profile sectional so multiple guests can curl up with a good book or watch a movie on days when it’s too cold to go exploring. The sofa is also deep enough to serve as an extra guest bed, in a pinch. Plenty of blankets are provided and a vintage trunk serves as a coffee table – ideal for storing luggage. Nordic décor isn’t just beautiful, it’s often useful and flexible.
