Who’s ready for a Fixer Upper living room?!! If you don’t know who Chip and Joanna Gaines are from the hit HGTV show Fixer Upper, then here is a dose of fabulous from them! Joanna is known for her rustic farmhouse look with pops of modern industrial charm. And that is why I selected this gorgeous living room from them for this week’s Design Details Uncovered. Our DDU posts have become very popular and I love taking rooms from designers and helping you breakdown the design to get a similar look in your own home. You can either grab the whole design or take bits of it and work them into your own aesthetic.So you ready to check it ou??!!
The Design Details:
use shiplap on your walls and paint everything white
Joanna and Chip are known for their shiplap that seems to be uncovered in all the homes they work on in Waco. Lucky ducks! But there are ways to get the look even when your home wasn’t constructed with it like this post. The point is to add some architectural look to your walls when painting them white. Either using brick or wood paneling will get you the look. The white gives this room a blank slate for the warm tones of furniture and pops of greenery.
select white slipcovered furniture
Okay I hear y’all chiming in and saying “but I have kids!”. I have to tell you I had a slipcovered sofa for 10 years and loved it. Any spills, mess, etc and I just whipped it off and through it in the wash. Really they can be function and as for the same reason as painting the walls white, it makes the accessories and greenery pop.
select pillows with a pop of color
I really think this could work with any color and not just the blue and white they used. Mix your patterns and it will give you a great layered look.
choose a rug to ground all your white
Select a rug that will be neutral enough but still give you some color. The brunt colored one they used helps make the wood pieces of furniture they selected mesh well with the white sofa and chair. We’ve got some gorgeous and affordable rugs right HERE for you.
select side tables and a coffee table in bleached woods
A bleached wood has some white in it and gives it that old world feel. Use this in your side tables, coffee table, sofa back table and even bookcases. It will be just beautiful with all that white!
pop in greenery
Bring those outdoors in friends! Use potted plants large and small, faux greenery, etc and place them all around. It will add immediate warmth to the room.
