Are there any Fixer Upper fans out there? I can’t get enough of the Fixer Upper episodes, to the point where I find myself DVR-ing them even while I’m watching them so that I can rewind and pause them on certain rooms and see how I can get the look. John and I visited Magnolia Farms back in November (read all about our trip here), and even though Waco is a pretty little town compared to what this OC girl is used to, I can’t help but think about what it might be like to pick up an amazing old house and let Chip and JoJo work their magic. A girl can dream, right?
I thought that since I am practically disecting each of these Fixer Upper episodes, I would share a “get the look” from my favorite episodes here with y’all. (Did you like that little bit o’ Texas?) 😉
This kitchen gets all the heart eyes. That hand painted tile FULL backsplash on both walls is incredible. (not to mention an ENTIRE house full of shiplap!!) While you do lose some kitchen cabinets in order to show it off, the open shelving provides some stylish storage and the wow factor is totally worth the sacrifice. I want to talk for a minute about the fixtures in this space. Take a look at the oven, cabinet pulls, pot filler, and kitchen faucet. What do you notice about them? The finishes are ALL different! What do you think? I think it is SO common to always go matchy with fixtures, but I want you to notice that all of these are different and they all work together. If you are considering a re-model, don’t feel pressured to match your existing fixtures. Feel free to go with an eclectic look and it will work. The french country barstools, beautiful wood hood, and rustic pendant lights all add a comfortable feel to the space.
The brick floors in this sun room turned dining room are just too pretty. I love the way JoJo carried the feel of the kitchen into this space with the chairs that match the barstools. Even though this is a completely separate room where you can’t see the kitchen, it makes it feel like a cohesive space. The pops of blue in this otherwise neutral space are gorgeous. I am loving the round rug under the white pedestal table. I’ve been seeing more and more round rugs lately…they are definitely a big trend.
There are so many fun antique fairs and shops, make it your mission to find old pieces and incorporate them into your design. I love hunting for the perfect piece. Sometimes it takes a few months, but that is part of the fun. It makes you love your piece that much more too when you finally find the perfect one. This buffet is so pretty and is given new life in this dining room with a simple coat of paint. It matches the color of the table which ties the pieces together.
I hope you are feeling inspired to bring a little piece of this beautiful Fixer Upper home with you.
