Magnolia Makeover: The Americano House

Where did the season go? Chip and Joanna finished their final Fixer Upper with a home they called the Americano House. They definitely ended on a high note and on a house that spoke to their design strengths. In her blog, Joanna shares that her favorite room is the kitchen and dining room.

“Our clients wanted an industrial farmhouse style, so we used a couple of tried and true farmhouse design elements with some unexpected industrial details,” she writes. If you like the style, too, here are three design tips you can use in your own home.

Combine Industrial and Farmhouse Styles

Joanna used a lot of traditional farmhouse elements in this home, including the existing shiplap ceiling, farmhouse sink, and subway tile backsplash. Then she gave the room a twist by adding industrial details, like the hardware, and stainless steel vent hood. “I’ve always liked to pair these two styles together because of how seamlessly they balance each other and blend together,” she writes.

Use Classic Colors

Joanna used the classic black and white palette, which gives the room a timeless and clean feeling. “Using this classic color palette is true to the farmhouse style, and it also allows for all kinds of additional accent pieces to be added in seamlessly,” she writes.

Add Dimension to the Ceiling

Joanna warmed up the high contrast color palette by making the ceiling a focus piece. “I decided to expose the shiplap on the ceiling. I love how the kitchen feels balanced with the black, white and natural tones,” she writes.
