Fixer Upper

June 4th, 2014

If we’re being honest, being an interior designer tends to prompt frustrating questions:

“Oh my gosh, do you just love being a decorator?”

“You’re a decorator?! Oh that must be so fun!”

“Do you watch HGTV all day?”

Remember this post? I’m not a decorator. The HGTV question used to always prompt an over- enthusiastic “NO!” from me.  That is, until I discovered Fixer Upper.  Starring Chip and Joanna Gaines, Fixer Upper shows three different homes to a potential buying couple, leading them to the purchase and renovation of one home.


Chip and Joanna are both Baylor grads currently living in Waco, Texas running their company Magnolia Homes.  They complete renovations as well as new construction.   Besides having unique style and design solutions, Chip and Joanna seem like amazing people that you want to be friends with. Here’s more of their work:

Fixer Upper airs new episodes on Thursday nights.  Check your local listings and add them to your DVR.  It’s such a cute show and completely converting me into an HGTV viewer.

    I will have to check it out. I’m so over HGTV especially House Hunters which must be very popular because it’s on all the time. Thanks for the info.

    What paint color did you use in the living room? With the white fireplace.

      Hi Allison! These are all photos from Fixer Upper. The paint color looks very similar to Benjamin Moore’s HC-108 Sandy Hook Gray. It’s beautiful if you’re not familiar. Give it a try!

    I would like to know about the metal/wood pieces above the sofa. I watched a fixer upper this evening that had them as a headboard. What are they and where might one purchase? Love this show! Makes me want to move to Waco!
