Chip and Joanna Gaines are both a huge inspiration to me when it comes to design, family, and lifestyle. They are so great at incorporating special elements that mean something to their clients while retaining their own aesthetic. Joanna’s use of shiplap and previously-loved items bring such a homey feel to each of their projects. I love how they both see the beauty in homes and aim to restore and renew them rather than just gutting and modernizing. Jo never fails to design spaces that feel warm and inviting from the second you walk in the door.
Here are a couple of my favorite projects from them:
THE CARGO SHIP HOUSE-
THE MAGNOLIA HOUSE-
It is so much fun to see how their style has evolved with each season of their HGTV show, Fixer Upper. It seems like Chip and Jo were a little ‘safer’ with their designs in season 1 and now they do not hold back, incorporating personal touches wherever they can!
