Home Influencers Are Raving About the HGTV® Dream Home 2021

The grand prize in the HGTV® Dream Home 2021 sweepstakes may have already been claimed, but the buzz about the stunning Rhode Island property continues among home design influencers who can’t get enough of the luxurious Newport home.

Delivery truck driver Jeff Yanes of Austin, Texas was the lucky recipient of a life-changing video call from designer Brian Patrick Flynn letting him know he’d won the grand prize, valued at $2.8 million dollars. The package included not only the fully furnished home, but also $250,000 cash from Rocket Mortgage and a brand-new motorhome from Camping World.

But it’s that house – with its seamless flow between luxurious indoor and Belgard outdoor spaces, overlooking an idyllic expanse of river – that caught the eye of some of social media’s hottest home influencers. See what they had to say about the stunning 3,300 square foot coastal retreat:

. . .

“The hardscaping for The Dream Home 2021 is like nothing you’ve seen before! Each paver was carefully selected with a purpose to complement and tie together the entire space, and it really did just that! I fell in love with so many of Belgard’s products and it really got my wheels turning when thinking about our yard.

We are redoing our backyard this Spring and that includes installing a rather large, 1700 sq ft patio. We are going to create an outdoor kitchen, dining area and hopefully have room for a lounge space as well. I found myself not knowing where to start. I know what I want, but want to make sure I can execute it properly. While listening to Joe Raboine, the Belgard expert, I learned about their Belgard Rooms Planner! I felt like I was on an HGTV show! This thing is so cool, as it allows you to select the space you desire [kitchen, dining, living, office, etc] and then they offer ideas based on your home’s style. You can play around with product and see what it will look like, in a virtual, 3D design. It really brings the concept to life so you are left with little to no unwelcome surprises at the end!”

“I got a chance to preview the house with Brian Patrick Flynn and Belgard to learn more about the outdoor design and materials. The grey tones, inspired by the stone mansions, were abundant in the hardscaping like the Lafitt® Rustic Slab on the patio that mimics the color and texture of natural slate. The outdoor areas were more important this year than ever, so Belgard created outdoor ‘rooms,’ separating the living, dining, cooking, and fire pit areas for a whole series of alfresco entertaining spaces. The result is both beautiful and functional!”

“It’s all so fun, and I was really impressed with the hardscape outside, all from Belgard. Belgard takes outdoor living spaces to the next level… Such gorgeous work! And the cool thing about this company, is that you can visit Belgard’s Room Planner, where you can choose exactly what kind of outdoor space you’re looking to create, and the site helps you pull it all together based on a series of selections they guide you through. From the size of your yard, to the shape, to specific features you’re wanting and the style you’re aiming for.”

– Haneen, Haneen’s Haven
