Home Tour: Fixer Upper Style

Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed your weekend, friends. We went to the town fair (and rode the ferris wheel!) and saw the movie Chef-- it was really good!

One of the things McCann and I love doing on weekdays after dinner is to watch a little HGTV to unwind. We are loving the show Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines. The pair went to my brother's school, Baylor University, so it's fun to see little snippets of the town my brother is living in. I love their fun personalities, and Joanna totally nails the renovation ideas and design style every time. I adore their farmhouse vibe! Take a look at one of their recent renovations below. They turned this 1937 craftsman house into a gorgeous new home with their signature style for a deserving mom, after her previous home was destroyed in the tragic fertilizer plant explosion in Texas. I remember that day well; I texted me brother right away to be sure he was okay. To my relief he was fine, but he was only about 20 minutes away from where the explosion took place. We are so grateful he was kept safe! I'm also grateful for people like Chip and Joanna, who serve people through design daily. I want to give that gift to others, too, which is the heart to my design business.

Enjoy this before and after!

Before:

After:
Taking down the awnings, painting the home a nice neutral color, and adding some pretty plants really make the home so welcoming.

I'm all for some brick fireplaces, but there's something about a brick fireplace painted white that I absolutely adore. It keeps the original character, but it gives the room and fresh, updated look while maintaing that farmhouse look I love. 




Ah, be still my heart! I love a white kitchen with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. Those chandeliers are a total bonus!

Want to know another one of my obsessions? White subway tile with gray grout. Love, love, love. 

That headboard. So pretty!

Have you gotten into Fixer Upper on HGTV lately? If not, you're missing out! There is so much soul that goes into each renovation. Did you know you can shop their Magnolia Market store online too?! 


What's your favorite part of this home makeover?


Have a wonderful week!

  1. I love this show as well. My favorite is the home for her woodworker. The Harp house was horrible before, bullet holes and everything but what Chip and Joanna did to it is truly amazing. If you haven't seen this show on HGTV you are really missing out.

  3. I love, love, LOVE this show. I've watched several of the episodes multiple times and never tire of them. I never cease to be amazed by what Chip and Joanna can do with a complete disaster of a house. And I am mad about the color Joanna used in the living, dining, kitchen area of this house. I believe she has used the same color in a couple of other fixer uppers as well. I wish I knew what color it was.

  7. Perfect home. You know I have to ask. What is the wall color in the family room? Must do this color in mine. I never saw that show. Have to find out when it's on in Northwest Ohio.

  8. They are the sweetest couple. Katie and I drove by the shop while I was there. Plan to stop in over Homecoming weekend. And, it is fun to drive by some of the homes they have renovated.

  16. I also love watching re-runs of HGTV shows while relaxing in the afternoons and drinking iced tea. Hahaha! I haven't watched that episode before, but I'm sure to put it on my list. Anyway, I love the transformation and everything about it. The curb appeal just went to another level. Those interiors are just spot on. My favorite would have to be the kitchen, though. Those cast iron chandeliers are just simply gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing! I hope everyone is doing fine.
