Farmhouse Frenzy

  • June 8, 2018

I do not know about you but I am defiantly a product of the Chip and Joanna Gaines phenomenon. I swear anything those two touch, whether it be a dilapidated barn or an old wobbly end table that they found at the antique store, is pure gold when they are finished! I have never watched a renovation show where I LOVE ever single completed project until Fixer Upper. Because of that, I have embraced my farm house frenzy and compiled a few of my favorite design ideas/inspiration that I have picked up from watching all 73 episodes, 5 seasons of Fixer Upper.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you first think of Joanna? That’s right, SHIPLAP!

Not only does shiplap look amazing when it is done, but it is also very reasonable and pretty user friendly when applying (great for all us DIY believers). Here are a few of my favorite examples that I found and also a really cool link from Pinterest on how to install it.

Last week I ventured into the Twin Cities to explore a stunning house that was thoughtfully constructed by a local builder and turned into a...
So pretty and fresh.

I LOVE this idea if you do not want to cover a whole wall in shiplap but still want to incorporate it into your home.

NOTE: You could make the cute “McNelly” (insert your own last name or favorite phrase) using the NuFun Wood Transfer Paper for that special final touch.


The second thing that probably comes to mind when thinking Fixer Upper is of course subway tiles! This is such a classic, crisp look that I can not help but showcase this design option as well. See below to some of my favorites…

I love how clean and classic this kitchen looks with the grey grout, white subway tile, and dark blue cabinets. The blue really pops against the bright white!

Not only do I love the subway tiles in this design, but I also see another signature of Joanna’s, the amazing floor tiles! Simplistic designs and colors around the room with a little crazy, fun print on the floor tiles makes for a beautiful room.


Through all the seasons for Fixer Upper, the wall art that Joanna typically used stays pretty consistent. She seems to really like using steel wall art, along with greens, greens and more greens! See some examples below.

You can’t forget about the famous farmhouse sink when talking Fixer Upper design. Prior to watching this show, I didn’t have the slightest idea what a farmhouse sink was… now it is on my top three list of things that are non-negotiably going to be in my future home!

Look at all that room!

Last but certainly not least, I love all of the large statement chandeliers used in the designs. Who knew light fixtures could bring so much to a room!
