Brian Patrick Flynn brought his years of talent and decorative eye to the project and renovated the 1,500-square-foot home. You can see photos of Flynn’s finished work below. The bungalow is a two-story, two-bedroom home and boasts two and a half baths.
This wasn’t Flynn’s first time working on one of HGTV’s sweepstakes. He also decorated the HGTV Urban Oasis 2015 sweepstakes home as well as the HGTV Dream Home 2016.
While Flynn handled the home’s interior design, renovations were under the oversight of HGTV Project Manager Scott Branscom. Under Branscom’s watch, the decision was made to add a new master suite, located on the second floor. Studio Z designed the home while Maven Development provided full renovations. The result is a modern home in a bustling neighborhood with plenty of opportunities for enjoying a trendy, urban lifestyle.
Before and after photos are available on the official HGTV, sweepstakes entry site. Bona flooring created a video documenting their part in the home’s renovation. You may see that video below.
Michigan Live took viewers on a guided tour of the inside of the finished house, presented by the home’s interior designer, Brian Patrick Flynn. With a rich forest-green exterior, the lighter green accent color makes the home warm and inviting. The earthy tones accentuate natural elements found throughout the bungalow. There is a front porch that is the perfect location for enjoying fresh air and pleasant conversation.
Flynn took viewers to the living room, which features vaulted ceilings and Florida ceiling tile. The living room is cozy, while the ceilings create a spacious atmosphere. There is a tiled fireplace that adds to the room’s allure. The feel of the room is comfortable, and the seating arrangement ensures there is plenty of room for fun social activities as well as intimate gatherings.
