This year’s HGTV Urban Oasis®—a charming 1920s-era retreat located in Louisville, Kentucky—combines the best of Louisville’s local flavor with all the aspects of classic Southern charm. Designed by Atlanta-based interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, this 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home features the innovative blend of an open floor concept downstairs and thoughtfully appointed cozy bedroom and bonus spaces on the home’s upper floor. Keep reading to see five Hunter fixtures featured throughout the house, plus simple style tips to level up your own living space.
Where Warmth Meets Wow Factor
The HGTV Urban Oasis 2023 boasts a main living area where warmth meets wow factor and guests are sure to say “ahhh”. Located just inside the front door, the house’s charming Southern living room is home to a cozy color palette featuring shades of burnt sienna, mustard yellow and the occasional pop of muted navy to offset the room’s warm tones. Designer Flynn amplifies the living room’s warmth by invoking the golden glow of brass, prominent in fixtures and accent pieces across this stylish, “sit for a spell” space. For a room that’s sure to see frequent foot traffic and plenty of use, Flynn chose Hunter’s Park View ceiling fan with built-in LED light to help visitors stay cool. Designed specifically for large spaces, this ENERGY STAR-certified ceiling fan is the perfect pick to keep air flowing throughout the home’s open concept downstairs level. Pictured in Matte Black with sleek Black Ash fan blades, the Park View’s dark hue beautifully contrasts the room’s warm vibes. For spaces that skew toward cooler tones, consider introducing this accessory in Weathered Beech Wood with a bold, Matte Silver base.
Dish in Your (Not So) Formal Dining Room
Transitioning from the main living area to the home’s “formal” dining room (made instantly more casual thanks to innovative skirted bench seating interspersed amid the chairs), we see a recurrence of the brass, orange and blue shades introduced in the house’s entryway. Proof positive that mix-and-matching textures creates a lush, lounge-worthy look, this space balances rich leather and darker drapery with the crisp, off-white linen shades of our Cottage Hill 6 Light 3 Shade Linear Chandelier. Designed to keep dinner conversations bright, the Cottage Hill’s clean lines and subtle curves make this chandelier an easy addition to almost any aesthetic. Opt for our Alturas Gold finish when working with warmer tones, or shop this piece in Brushed Nickel or Natural Black Iron for the finish that best suits your space.
Capture Classic European Vibes
Just steps past the dining area lies a masterfully timeless take on the European-style kitchen. From the gray on white checkerboard tiles to the floor-to-ceiling cabinetry in classic navy, this kitchen is truly a chef’s paradise, featuring all the trappings of farmhouse style met with elements of old-world elegance. Side-by-side Capshaw 6 Light Pendants in Alturas Gold serve as stunning counterparts to the kitchen’s brass fixtures and showstopping centerpiece, a freestanding wood table installed in lieu of a more modern cabinet-style island. Outfitted with six bulbs in a sleek drum setting, the Capshaw blends the best elements of modern and classic design to create a new look that’s an instant sensation. And, with a maximum hanging length of nearly six feet (71.5”), this lighting fixture can uplift any living space to new heights.
Double Up Sconces to Maximize Mirrors
Rounding out the first floor, we enter the home’s primary bathroom, artfully concealed by a pocket door off the main hallway. While this master bath is spacious by any standards, the designer’s use of monochromatic floor-to-ceiling forest green makes the room feel even larger and more luxurious. As an added bonus, the menswear-inspired wallcovering is made of easily washed vinyl—a clever touch in a room designed to get steamy. From the French doors to the beveled subway tile, we love everything about this sophisticated space, but we’ve gone especially gaga over the introduction of our Nolita 1 Light Wall Sconce on either side of the vanity mirrors. Shown in Alturas Gold for an antique-brass look and also offered in Brushed Nickel, this indoor-damp rated fixture is an excellent choice for your home’s most humid rooms.
Brighten Up Your Sleeping Space
Perhaps saving the best for last, this year’s HGTV Urban Oasis features a ground-level primary bedroom with bright, airy windows and a recurring black-and-white buffalo check pattern that’s sure to surprise and delight. Once again, we see Flynn exercise a creative layering of textures and tones, from the contrasting checkerboards at floor and ceiling to the crisp, textured shade adorning the Briargrove 4 Light Shade Chandelier. Equal parts elegant and easy on the eyes, this chandelier is a versatile fixture that evokes a modern, upscale feel. With clean lines, sleek geometry and your choice of Matte Black or the Modern Brass finish featured here, you can mix and match this chandelier with other pieces from Hunter’s Briargrove Collection to keep your own personal oasis looking light and bright all year round.
