The 20th annual HGTV® Dream Home, a 3,100-square-foot Caribbean-inspired getaway with spectacular water views, is located in a tropical paradise: Merritt Island, Florida. This is the first time that HGTV has ever opted to completely remodel an existing home, instead of building a new one. The home will be awarded to the lucky winner of the HGTV Dream Home 2016 Giveaway.

The reimagined seaside retreat is the perfect stage for Ethan Allen furnishings, many of them crafted by hand in the company’s North American workshops. The transformation was the creative work of HGTV Dream Home designer Brian Patrick Flynn, who shopped the Ethan Allen Design Center in Manhattan to select the furniture, upholstery, window treatments, and accessories that would make his vision for a sophisticated Floridian escape a reality.

Flynn chose a cool palette of blue-grays and ivory with some punches of terracotta. He filled the breezy home with a wide array of Ethan Allen styles, all suitable for its coastal chic vibe, and all available at Ethan Allen Design Centers nationwide and

“The most enjoyable thing for me was having the ability to shop at one place to furnish the entire home,” said Flynn. “With Ethan Allen, it was all done in New York City over just two days. That really made the entire process enjoyable and easy.”

"We’re honored to be furnishing the HGTV Dream Home for the 10th year in a row,” said Ethan Allen Chairman, President and CEO Farooq Kathwari. “This is a wonderful partnership for us, and the home is a beautifully designed showcase for our furniture, accessories, and art.”
