I mean, show me someone who doesn't enjoy this show? The wholesome goodness of the Gaines' family, the beautiful homes, the antique treasures Joanna finds, and the comedic relief that is Chip: what's not to love? These people have it all, their own realtor/contracting business, magnolia market, a bed and breakfast, a furniture and rug line, a paint line, and a book coming out in the fall (I can't wait!), but you can't be jealous because they are just so darn genuine and likable!
Josh and I have been looking at a few houses and all I can think is, I sure wish Chip and Jo were here to give a run down house a quirky name and make it beautiful for me (and I wonder, would they find any shiplap in Woodward, OK?). To find inspiration, I'm always looking at home redo's and decor online, so I thought it would be fun to revisit my favorite Fixer Upper's.
This home was featured in season one. This family, like me, had a love for Italy, but unlike me, visit there regularly. They wanted their new home to draw inspiration from their favorite vacation place. I love the unique exterior of this home and how the Gaines' transformed it into something totally different than it was.
This kitchen was featured in the first episode of the second season. Personally, I don't think I could ever be clean and organized enough for open shelving, but I love the look of it! Especially this industrial shelf look. Josh and I looked into doing this in our office, but those little pipes are a little more expensive than I anticipated!
Season three, I suppose, has been my favorite. I feel like decoratively (is that a word?) or should I say creatively, Joanna seemed to have stepped out of her box a little more throughout this season. Like this unconventional plant-chandelier over the dining table. I love the whole decorating with things in unexpected places.
These glass cabinet on either side of this fire place--I love! And below, I love the unique texture this accent wall brings to this master bedroom.
There wasn't a great picture, but I just had to add in this craft table from Joanna's go-to carpenter, Clint Harp. WHERE CAN I GET ONE!!!?!?!? I'm unsure why Joanna's furniture line DOES NOT include this table.
I've been all about white kitchen cabinets, but I'm really liking this color. And that mixmatched backsplash, you guys!
This house is probably one of my favorites, if not my very favorite house of the whole series, "The School House". Chip called this brick technique "German Smear". It looked a little tedious, but it is so unique, it might just be worth it!
They did an antique-mirrored look on these large cabinet doors. They look to die on these dark toned cabinets. (and that fireplace, and THAT BEDROOM)(grey perfection).
Joanna introduced me to cement tiles, and I WANT in my next house. I love them here on this fireplace, and they are perfection in this bathroom. Josh might need a change of heart to like them as much as I do.
These last two are of "The Carriage House" featured in season three's final episode. Joanna and Chip flip a house for a sweet couple that is now running their bed and breakfast. One of my favorite things Joanna does, and perhaps what she is known for (or maybe that's shiplap?) is finding these unique arcitectural pieces and finding them a new place in her home designs. These doors and this fireplace are prime examples of her creativity.
