“With HGTV Urban Oasis 2020, we wanted to honor the rich history of Portland with interior design that reflected both the 1900s New England cottage build as well as the exciting modern life of this vibrant city,” said Brian Patrick Flynn, Host of HGTV Urban Oasis Special 2020. “The winner will definitely feel that as they enter the home!”
This modern coastal cottage sits at nearly 2,000 square feet hosting three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Upon approaching the home, visitors are greeted by a bold coral front door that pops against the pewter-toned siding. The formal entry of the home leads into the playful foyer and adjacent stairway. The second entry is intended for everyday use, equipped with a two-story glass encased mudroom, bench seating and a staircase that leads to a large hallway, which opens to the laundry amenities and nautical inspired powder room. Upon either entrance, visitors are led to the heart of the home consisting of an open breakfast nook and cozy living room, creating an excellent layout for entertaining and everyday living. Both the breakfast nook and kitchen take a neutral tone, with pale greens to complement the tree-lined views of the home’s backyard, visible through the large sliding glass doors. Through the kitchen, visitors will step out onto a large deck for outdoor dining as well as a hardscape seating area complete with fire pit. Upstairs, visitors will find three unique bedrooms each designed in their own style. The main bedroom has a nautical feel with royal blue walls and ceilings, original artwork mixed with antique nautical flags to pay homage to the coast, and a chic white bathroom en suite. Along the upstairs hallway, a hunter green guest room and colorful studio space flank the rose-colored guest bathroom.
The official entry period for the HGTV Urban Oasis 2020 is 9 a.m. ET on Monday, October 5th through 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 25th.
