Fabulous Finishes at HGTV Dream Home 2016

Great hardware can take simple cabinetry from so-so to spectacular. For HGTV Dream Home 2016, designer Brian Patrick Flynn chose hardware, fixtures, and a faucet that would make a statement, particularly in the kitchen.

“When you look at the kitchen, you immediately notice the color of the hardware,” he says. “It’s unique, not something you’ve seen a million times before.”

The cabinetry combo was chosen for a couple of reasons. The dark lower cabinets (a brown-black) give a sense of groundedness and connect to the espresso shades used in the adjoining great room, tying everything together throughout the open space. The white upper cabinets are Shaker style, which is actually a chameleon look: it can lean traditional or modern depending on the accents you choose.

Which brings us to the shiny accent pieces. To complement the timeless cabinet choices but make the overall look super-current, Brian wanted to capitalize on trends—and take them a step further. “For the past four or five years, brass has made a huge comeback in the interior design world,” he says. “A lot of interior designers use what’s called unlacquered brass, which looks like it was picked up at a flea market—it’s aged, and not very shiny.”

But now there’s a new shade in town: champagne bronze. “It’s kind of brassy, but with a little bit more of a copper tint—more in the brown family than in the gold,” Brian says. So the first choice was easy, because Delta® Faucet actually makes a faucet in that very shade.

HGTV Dream Home 2016 kitchen faucet“That’s probably the most unique finish of all the faucets in the house,” Brian says. The Trinsic® Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet, like others in the house, features Touch2O® Technology, which allows you to turn the water stream on and off with a simple tap.

The next step wasn’t quite so easy, though. “We searched high and low to find champagne bronze hardware,” Brian says. “Because it’s not a huge trend yet, it was hard to find.” But well worth the effort, because the shade contrasts so vividly with both dark and light cabinets, yet still offers a feeling of warmth.

The warming effect of bronze is critical to the design of the space, in fact. Look at what it does for the entire living room/kitchen combo:

Lesson: when you suspect the perfect finish is out there, don’t give up easily—trust your instinct and keep digging till you find design gold! Or bronze, as the case may be.

  48. I love the 2015 dream home. It just draws me in and makes me feel I want to stay. ( Can anyone tell me where the two wall mirrors in the master bath were purchased or who makes them? ) The display of design talent is so obvious yet so comfortable throughout. The spaces, colors, woodwork, accents, and surprises make it fun. I find it very inspiring even though I do not prosess such understanding of design. I feel like I'm being pulled through the house on a ride. Love it!!!

  52. I love all of your homes! They are all beautiful & would love to live in either one of them which is why I enter continuously on every one! I have no problem relocating to a my of them. I think you guys need to give us, who can no way afford one otherwise a second look. I'm retired & on disability and barely have money to pay the bills much less food. I have RA & other issues & I really don't know how much more I can take. I prayed & prayed for the Florida home because it would allow me to be closer to my son who lives in Tampa. I just want to finish out my life being closer to my son & being part of his everyday life. I get so lonely & dishartened with my life right now. I want to be happy & comfortable & have food on the table & not have to worry about things anymore. I want a place where my son would be proud to come too. I'm not looking for sympathy, I just think you guys should award the homes to people who really need them & appreciate them. Actually live in them & be able to enjoy what life we have left. Not to sell. I just wanted to say that. Thanks for your time! Diane Hein
    By the way, we can't afford rent anymore & are going to have to move in with my Dad. His house is practally falling down but we have no other choice. Just a small nice little cottage or cabin would be a god send. Thanks again!

  58. I really like the bottom kitchen cabinets being dark and the top ones being white I think that is what I'll be doing to my own kitchen soon. And love the open concept kitchen from the living room. I know who ever wins this will be very blessed.

    Vivian on February 18, 2016 at 11:16 am
  59. I know that I'm in the minority here – but I hate the layout of this kitchen. (please note I like the look ) There does not need to be two outside doors into the kitchen when it's at the expensive of counter space ( and letting bugs into the house). Why didn't they put in a passthrough window for "convenient access"? But I think the big problem is the kitchen island. It would be great as a work space – but island's work space is WAY too small around the sink and the dishwasher is too far from the cabinets and silverware drawer. I also don't think having dirty dishes in the middle of the room is in anyway appealing, and I know that none of my friends would like to sit and talk over the dirty dishes – or even clean pots drying — ( and why no dish soap dispenser?"). I love to cook and bake, but I don't think there is enough storage space in this kitchen– so I'd like the cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling. That would also keep the top of the cabinets from getting dirty. As far as I'm concerned — pretty kitchen but not a very good – easy to keep clean the kitchen. On top of that – why a 2 story wall mural? The surfing scene is great for now, but it will eventually become outdated. Triptych panels of the surfing scene would be easier to change then striping and painting a two story mural. I've heard other people ask about this house, – "does this guy know what that FL has bugs, so why no porch screens?"– and "reptiles and snakes show up in pools, so why isn't the pool caged?"

Currently live in Maryland and plan to move to Florida for my fiancé business. I'm a nurse so I'll be transferring jobs. He's a PI and excited about it all. This home would be a wonderful dream come true. God bless

    Cheryl on February 11, 2016 at 8:14 pm
  65. I really like muted/ antique style brass, in addition to the new trends of all the different finishes. I know many people tell you why they'd love to win this home and this main blog is suppose to be on the use of the different finishes. Which all the use of different finishes was daring, but Patrick really pulled it off and I feel did an amazing job. For the reason I would love to win this home is because Merritt Island is where my late husband and I began our lives together. We lived all over Florida due to his career. My husband passed away while we lived in Odessa, Florida. When he became ill, we often spoke of moving back home to Merritt Island. After he passed I was unable to maintain our home and had to move in with a family member in a small 2 bedroom home. Soon after my son retired from the navy due to disability reason's. So, now we have 3 people living in a very small home. It would be a dream to move back home, and once again have a bedroom and space for my son and I as well as a bedroom for my daughter when she comes home from Kansas to visit. Most importantly have a home to call our very own once again. This home as well as it's location has been a inspiration since it was revealed, the gorgeous decor and finishing touches are a wonderful bonus!

  79. I have studied every inch of this house, I'm completely obsessed! In love and want to win this so much! It's my dream come true! The only feature that threw me a little is the color of the master bedroom which is very intense. I love the color but wonder if it couldn't be toned down just a little. For the person that asked, the laundry room is just beyond the bathroom that connects outside for the pool/lanai… it's behind the big mural on the living room wall.

  80. This room is perfect with a color scheme going from bold lower cabinets to the soft white cabinets above. I like that the fabric stripe colors that were chosen on the chairs on the island blend with the lower cabinets and the end tables etc. Then the neutral color sofas with the soft neutral pillows as well as the lamps compliment the whole look. Perfect pace to live and enjoy the views and all of the outdoor surroundings are so restful couldn't ask for a better home and place to live.

  81. I know most of you love that kitchen, but I am not a fan especially the back splash. It looks like bathroom tile that found a new use. I am a big fan of the annual HGTV homes and the designers do a beautiful job, this kitchen is not for me. I am a big fan of classic, but this combo looks trendy to me not classic. Overall a beautiful renovation.

  82. This is an attractive kitchen but I see two obvious functionality issues. First, the sink is a MILE from everything. You will drop half the vegetables from the cutting board by the time you reach the stove top to cook them. What the heck were they thinking? The range should be a pivot behind you if there's an island sink. Also, the hood is way, way too high. A hood shouldn't be more than 29-30" above a cooktop. If it's too high, the smoke and odors will escape to the side before they get sucked up into the hood. And many municipalities have a 400 cfm limit or a make up air unit needs to be installed (you'd create negative pressure in your house). So if they're saying it's up that high because it has 900 cfm and can handle it, I say overkill and unnecessary and just odd looking. Not the best design here, folks.

  85. Absolutely! The hardware in this beautiful 'dream' kitchen definitely stands out. I would have never thought of using the Champagne Bronze, but it definitely pops! Awesome!

    Mayra on January 25, 2016 at 12:13 pm
  86. This kitchen (the entire home) is awesome!!!! I love how HGTV has the designers explain why they chose various products, colors, and accessories. It is fun to see how the designers' creative minds work to pull this masterpiece together! Every room, from the furniture pieces used instead of kitchen cabinetry (love that) to the stripe bar stools, is a work of art. Makes you feel good looking at it.

    Jodee Bennett on January 25, 2016 at 8:35 am
  87. Is there a place to find the paint colors? I'm looking for the dining room wall color, I saw somewhere that it was Glidden, but no color reference.

    Karen on January 24, 2016 at 8:30 pm
  88. it looks very hypoallergenic. I love that. to make it even more so, I would think that the curtains could be taken down and it would be just as beautiful if not more so. this would truly be an oasis to those that have severe allergies. I also like that there are 2 'messy area's'… lol… so that it keeps the dirt from inside the house. looking at the plans, it seems that there would be a place to install a laundry shoot from the master bedroom, an expense that could come out of the cash winnings. I also love the idea of renovating an existing house. I hope this becomes the norm. oh! and the garage! love the painted floor.. and the space! a great place to put the outdoor furniture in a storm. this house was so well thought out. I just love it. I hope it goes to someone that would otherwise, not be able to own their own home. have a good day, ya'll.

    cherna on January 24, 2016 at 5:12 pm
  89. Like this house more than most that have been up before but 2 things not in favor of is First: wall art not my style at all, but love the paint colors furniture and all the rest, floors, cabinetry, baths etc. Second: some of the light fixtures are a bit over the top of modern . Then again overall I love this house for architecture, design, layout and the balconies and porches are great. Hope I somehow win this beauty. Retired and we are in our early 70′s would be such a life event to win!

    Gerry on January 23, 2016 at 2:42 pm
  90. This house is totally amazing. HGTV definitely goes BIG!! That master bath shower is the size of a small room. I could probably stay in there for hours…. but then you have the pool – lounging around, the outdoor BBQ/Kitchen – I live in Colorado and I would BBQ almost every night. Totally outdoor living space is wonderful. The dock I can imagine fishing, having lunch and also watching the sunset. This is not a house but a home that you can appreciate living there the rest of your life.

    Diann Davids on January 23, 2016 at 12:20 pm
  91. We're loving the contrasting color of the Delta Champagne Bronze faucet! With the stainless appliances, it's the perfect touch of needed color…well-done, Brian.

    Joan on January 23, 2016 at 10:58 am
  92. WOW!

    TCJ on January 22, 2016 at 5:26 pm
  94. This house is meant for Chris and I, we are in the age of retirement and would love to live in warm sunny Florida. Chris has always wanted a boat and this answers his dream; we both love fishing and that is a big plus for us. I admire every thing you have done with this house and its decorations. You guys have really surpassed all the other dream homes with this one !

    Rose Compton on January 22, 2016 at 3:19 pm
  95. I love the two tones of the cabinets. Good choice. It is a very inviting kitchen.

    nursejudyfromCA on January 22, 2016 at 1:01 am
  96. Would love to be able to pull all the designs and colors together .
    What a dream to have a place like that.
    We will be happy for whomever is chosen.
    If you have a roof over your head right now as we do, we consider ourselves lucky.
    ( if the basement doesn't cave in literally )

  97. This beautiful home needs no expression of words, it simply is. I had not registered for this wonderful prize from the beginning, only did I enter after awaking last week when I sensed to google the hgtv dream house for this year. At first I thought this to be some silly notion, but much to my surprise I was in awe of the beauty and serenity of this home. It spoke straight to my soul, being of the water sign of cancer, this home absolutely draws me. I love the water, the tropical weather, the calmness of the decor and color choices, and all of the extra amenities truly make this a dream, A dream of which I would be so grateful to receive.

    Rebecca Vannatter on January 21, 2016 at 10:53 pm
  98. Sorry all you beautiful people, but I am going to win this place of my dreams and giving my lovily wife of 42 years a place in the sun. That we can live in peace and harmony. We will entertain all family and good neighbors often with joy and thanksgiving. Love John and Linda p.s. see you there.

  99. The finishing touches are always the 'wow' factor on a project! I mean, the bones of the work are important too ;) but the details just make it all come together. I love this house!

    In this kitchen the faucet, cabinet hardware, light fixtures, backsplash…all bring it together so beautifully. On my own I would not have been able to imagine the mix of colors but it is perfect.

    TCJ on January 21, 2016 at 6:43 pm
  100. Stay safe and warm whether in the sun :) or snow :(

    Brittney on January 21, 2016 at 6:25 pm
  101. I love the marble weave in the kitchen and the choice to have different top/bottom cabinets always a smart choice! Love that look …..and who knew there was a Champagne bronze hardware? ….AND don't get me started about the pool/outside area…I live in the Northeast (PA) with a snow storm about to hit…brrrrrrrrr!

    Brittney on January 21, 2016 at 6:21 pm
    • I too love the marble weave work and the dark cabinets, but, can I say I have a problem with the sink being half way across the room!!! I would have put it in the counter to the left of the stove for quick access, right under that window. Is there a diningroom there that I didn't see, or just the three chairs at the sink/counter?

      Lorna on January 23, 2016 at 11:27 am
  102. I honestly don't think I would have dared to make some of those choices…would have tried to play it "safe" and matched all hardware to the metal appliances. But safe doesn't usually equal savvy! Well done!

    wyofam on January 21, 2016 at 4:48 pm
  103. I have a question about the entry….Can you enter online AND mail in entries?

    Brittney on January 21, 2016 at 4:31 pm
    • Yes you can do both.

      dreamn_again on January 21, 2016 at 4:48 pm
      • thanks!

        Brittney on January 21, 2016 at 6:13 pm
        • I've been sending at least 20 a day since the day we were allowed to enter…BUT as far as i have read….not one mail in entry has been selected…google how they do the drawing…it's pretty cool but may not be worth it bc stamps are so damn expensive nowadays…

          jill on February 5, 2016 at 8:20 pm
  104. I Love It, Can you come to Memphis Tennessee and make my Home Beautiful. P.S I Love H G T V!!!!!!! Thanks, Belinda Williams

    Belinda on January 21, 2016 at 3:39 pm
  105. I love ALL the details…. I don't get tired of looking at each room at a time, stare and read all the great details about it. This home is anyone's dream's list. Everything is just amazing, is in a great location.
    I've been entering every day and so my husband. He really wants the boat and the car. He loves to fish so his dream ever since I met him and married him is to have a boat. My boys want the house mainly because it bring a beautiful dog house and that's their dream, to have a dog pet. haha… This home brings all of our dreams…
    Wishing and hoping we win.

    IrianaChie on January 21, 2016 at 3:10 pm
  106. Can someone tell me where I can find the information regarding the public tours and dates for this Dream Home 2016? Thanks so much!

    Jen on January 21, 2016 at 2:46 pm
    • There are no public tours scheduled.

      dreamn_again on January 21, 2016 at 4:50 pm
  107. I've never been one for mixing hardware finishes nor for brassy finishes but I actually like this. You had me at "Champagne"! :-) I've not seen this new Champagne bronze in person yet but it's lovely.

    laughtershock on January 21, 2016 at 1:07 pm
  108. While we're all gathered here, I have to ask, "Can you get your vitamin C just by drinking in the beauty of the Dream Home's guest bedroom colors?"

    I don't know for sure, but here's what Brian Patrick Flynn has to say on the matter of orange… and shades of:

    By the way, whose shirt is that hanging from the chair? And has someone been gazing into a mirror? "Mirror, mirror on that handy guest room desk, was it placed by someone tall and statuesque?"

    Now, for the shirtless scene:

    DBCoop on January 21, 2016 at 1:06 pm
  109. As they say, when it's time to celebrate something special, bring out the champagne… and Brian did just that! After all, everything about HGTV's Merritt Island Dream Home 2016 is really worth celebrating, starting from its scenic waterfront location right down to its champagne bronze hardware. ^_^

    DBCoop on January 21, 2016 at 11:48 am
  110. I can not tell you how much I love this home, but the kitchen is by far my favorite room! I can envision preparing meals there and dining outside with that beautiful view. Living in Maine, and with the long, cold winters, winning this home would be a dream come true. Retirement is a few years away and it would be a wonderful retreat to share with family and friends! PRETTY PLEASE?

    Lynda on January 21, 2016 at 11:46 am
  111. You all have mad skills! You are so talented and creative. I just bought a new home and wish that you would all come over and wave your magic want! My husband would cook some championship BBQ!

    Jennifer on January 21, 2016 at 11:29 am
  112. At first I didn't like the idea of the Champaign Bronze fixtures and hardware. Now II love it. They do standout on there own away from the rest of the colors in the room. I, might have chosen chrome to match the silver of the stove, dish washer, micro, and refrigerator. However, seeing it has changed my mind, It looks great, I was surprised. It's not the standard kitchen it looks more apart of the room not just a kitchen. Besides the tile that really stands out you now have a center piece of the faucet and hardware. Great job Brian, Josh, David an HGTV. Your work is outstanding.

    pattieclemm on January 21, 2016 at 11:14 am
  113. Love all the finishing touches! Home run on this one. :) May the person meant for this home, get it.
    Best wishes to us all.

    Take care in 2016.

    Cindy Garcia on January 21, 2016 at 10:51 am
    • wooow this is your house ?

      granit murah on October 22, 2016 at 5:01 am
  115. This is absolutely, positively, my favorite dream home of all time! I love all the color choices – especially the media room and the terrace bedroom.
    If I were to win this home the only change I would make is to install a dumb waiter in the entrance of the master bedroom to the laundry room to transport the laundry. I'm surprised they didn't think of that!
    I am in awe of the location. It is perfect for year round comfort and lush color! I think it would be so fun to catch our dinner every night on the Indian River with the boat provided! Here's hoping I win! I would definitely keep this home!

    ADZ on January 21, 2016 at 10:37 am
    • I was wondering if that space would accommodate an actual small elevator to connect both floors for older folks.

      Lindingo on January 21, 2016 at 1:37 pm
  116. Where's the laundry room?

    Karan on January 21, 2016 at 10:36 am
  117. I like the poo of charmpaign bronze in this space. I think it brings the whole space together and brings it down to make it not home feel.. I also love the cabinets, switching up and having two different colors makes the space seem big and inviting. To me the kitchen is saying come one come all and have a dinner party :-) ..

    Lisa on January 21, 2016 at 10:07 am
  118. That champaign bronze faucet definitely says Look at me. Guess I would only use that finish when I wanted everyone to look at it. In this room I wouldn't have used it. I'd rather say Look at this tile work.
