Another important thing to mention is that I could very easily give you a roundup of my favorite items from Magnolia Market, Chip and Joana Gaines online shop, but I won’t do that. You know I’m not a fan a putting together spaces all from the same space. I will mention a couple of items here and there but I will keep it interesting and mix things up.
FIXER UPPER INSPIRED SHELVING
Shelving is one of the perfect decor elements in which to incorporate that rustic element of the Fixer Upper Look because shelving doesn’t have to be a huge investment piece, and the accessories and vignettes created as display pieces will help balance out the rustic side.
FIXER UPPER INSPIRED LIGHTING
Light fixtures play such an important role in the look and feel of a room that it’s one of the main places where I try to incorporate the style I’m going for. Fixer Upper has managed to make farmhouse decor a huge thing so this is one of the elements that you can play with and the style into your space, add tons of the farmhouse character and manage to balance it out by doing strategic selection of the rest of the furniture.
In the Fixer Upper look lamps can be more modern, rustic, vintage, retro, industrial, etc. the options are endless just make sure that when choosing one it plays well with the rest of the pieces in the room, and complements the overall look you are going for.
FIXER UPPER INSPIRED LIVING FURNITURE
Joanna Gaines achieves the stunning living rooms we fall in love with every episode by sticking to a mainly neutral color palette, the particular style of each one of the elements is what adds the character to the space. In my roundup I play with neutral pieces that have small hints of the style we are trying to achieve, in order to avoid a style that feels overdone and can make you easily tired.
FIXER UPPER INSPIRED DINING FURNITURE
Fixer Upper features some stunning dining rooms, and when you go through all the projects looking for design details you will see that Joanna Gaines tends to play a lot with the design elements of the dining room. She uses chairs that add tons of atmosphere and design to the space, and pairs them with just the right lighting option and the table that complements everything.
FIXER UPPER INSPIRED ACCESSORIES
Decor accents and accessories are the place to bring in additional textures and colors to complement and bring to life your space. Don’t be afraid to bring in colorful elements and tons of texture, remember that when working with a neutral color palette the accents are the place to add personality and visual focal points.
I hope you are able to find pieces that give you the look that we all end up craving after every episode, remember you don’t have to do redo your entire space to bring in elements of a certain style, by simply choosing some key elements we can achieve the overall look that we are craving.
I would recommend starting with a neutral base and adding specific elements to it, this way we can avoid growing tired of a certain style and we increase the longevity of our space because we tend to outgrow certain trends.
