Magnolia Makeover: Plain Gray Ranch Made Bright and Spectacular

 

On last night’s Fixer Upper, young couple Matt and Melissa were looking to put down roots and buy their first house together. They settled on a ranch that needed lots of help to turn it into the bright, open home they envisioned. Of course, Chip and Joanna didn’t disappoint, and we love the open kitchen they designed. If you love it too, give yourself a Magnolia Makeover with these four pieces.

 

Start with the exact table Joanna used in the renovation. From the Magnolia Home Collection, the Double Pedestal Table has a beautiful base that was inspired by the massive corbel brackets used in antique architecture. The piece adds character to the room with its weathered “shop floor” finish.

 

Next, add dining chairs upholstered in a crisp white fabric. Our Brody Dining Chairs are sold in sets of two, and are part of our free-shipping collection. The light fabric offers a beautiful contrast to the rich finish of the wooden table.

 

 

If your room cannot accommodate a built-in banquette, create the same look by using an upholstered bench or settee. Our Fillmore Upholstered Bench is a great option if you’re trying to maximize space as it conveniently tucks under the table, freeing up your floor. Or add the tufted Lille Loveseat, which delivers the same cozy feel as our inspiration room.

 

Finally, give your room a modern touch with a chandelier. Our Lenora Steel Chandelier offers similar lines as our inspiration room, with its drum shade, traditional candle-style lights, and a touch of glamour with dangling prisms. The light shad complements the upholstered dining chairs.

Magnolia Makeover: A First Home For Avid Dog Lovers

On last night’s Fixer Upper, Andrew and Brittany were looking to buy their first home together, and one of their must-haves was an inviting feeling for their two dogs. They settled on a four-bedroom house built 1958 that sat on a beautiful lot with mature oak trees. The couple wanted a large main living space, and we love with Joanna did with the living room, which offers casual sophistication for the couple. If you love it, too, it’s time to do a Magnolia Makeover in your home.

Start with the exact sofa Joanna chose for the room. Available by order at any Art Van Furniture showroom, the Modern Tailor Sofa from Magnolia Home features tuxedo style and smart tufting. The rich gray upholstery is sophisticated as well as family- (and pet-) friendly.

 

Next add the cocktail bench. You can get the exact Linear Upholstered Bench from Magnolia Home in a color called “fog.” Or mix things up a bit by choosing our Boice Black Bench, with a beautiful gold metal base. The dark upholstery offers a nice contrast to the gray sofa.

 

Next add two accent chairs. We have the exact Cambridge Accent Chairs from Magnolia Home in stock, available for immediate pickup or delivery. The European style offers a nice complement to the modern sofa, and the soft color lightens up the room.

 

Finally, anchor the space with a rug. The Kivi Ivory Multi-color Rug from Magnolia Home is the same one Joanna chose for the room. You’ll love the classic pattern for years to come, and it’s versatile style blends beautifully with any décor.

 

Add dogs and you’ll have the same room that thrilled this adorable couple! What do you think of this Magnolia Makeover? See the rest of our series by clicking here.

Magnolia Makeover: Stately In White

In last night’s Fixer Upper, Joanna helped fellow designer Kristen and husband Brett redefine the interior of their new house. She took a home that was living in the ‘80s, and made it elegant and modern. We love the quaint dining space, located just off the kitchen. It features a beautiful antique mantel that provides storage as well as a interesting focal point. If you love it, too, let us help you create a Magnolia Makeover in your own home.

 

Start with the exact table used in the show. From Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines, the English Country Oval Table features classical ornament and details, inspired by an original piece. The oval shape feels inviting and inclusive, and the medallion on the base makes it beautiful from top to bottom.

 

Next, add the identical chairs from the Gaines’ remodel. Also from Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines, these French-inspired Emory Side Chairs mimic the table with their oval backs and tapered legs, creating a sophisticated European setting.

 

The “Stately In White” home features a beautiful drum-style chandelier over the table. We think the Rae Bronze Chandelier would be a great addition to your room. Offering a blend of chic and industrial influences, it will bring an updated twist to your elegant room.

 

Finally, add the same rug Joanna used in the Fixer Upper room, the Ella Rose Bone. From Magnolia Home, it is a modern interpretation of traditional Persian style, intentionally faded to create a transitional look.

Magnolia Makeover: A Country Home Reimagined

In last night’s Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna Gaines had a big challenge: redefine the quirky space and floor plan of a rural home for a couple with two grown kids. The result was a dramatic transformation that kept the country charm but added an updated sense of sophistication. We love the farmhouse dining area, which comfortably seats eight for dinner and conversation. If you like the space, too, give yourself a Magnolia Makeover by bringing home these four pieces:

Start with the exact table Joanna used in the episode, the Iron Trestle Table from Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines. The traditional style is a show piece, combining unexpected elements such as a curved metal base and a V-match planked top with a worn and rugged “shop floor” finish. The piece is an instant heirloom, with lots of character and charm.

Next, add the same Spindle Back Chairs from Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines. The farmhouse style was inspired by Windsor chairs, which have been family favorites for generations. Joanna updates her chairs with a distressed black finish, adding a twist to a traditional dining space.

A unique chandelier adds a rustic touch in our inspiration room. Our Grand Eight Round Chandelier would be a great choice. The forged iron design features rope accents and a rustic finish, and the bulbs add a warm glow to dinnertime.

Finally, anchor the space with a neutral rug. Our Edge Ivory Rug adds dimension with alternating strips of leather and jute for a unique tactile feel that your feet will love. The light neutral color offers nice contrast to the black chairs and dark table, defining your space with style.

Magnolia Makeover: A Special Home Makeover for a US Army Veteran

Last night’s Fixer Upper was special; instead of helping someone purchase and renovate a home, Joanna and Chip upgraded a house built in the 1940s for a military vet and his wife. Joanna worked to expand the 800-square-foot home, using creative ways to add function, space, warmth and beauty. We love how airy the small living room looks. If you like the style, we’ve got the look.

Start with the slipcover-style sofa. Practical and classic, it sets an easy and casual tone in the room. We have the exact piece, the Benchmark Sofa from Magnolia Home, available by custom order in our showroom. Or choose the easy style of our Larimar Sofa, with its rolled arms, dressmaker skirt and light upholstery.

Next, add a pair of casual leather chairs. Our Perry Chair upholstered in a warm brown shade of 100% genuine leather is a good choice. Its track arms, simple lines and comfortable seat make it a casual favorite.

Finally, add the industrial style cocktail table and end tables. The Pier & Beam collection from Magnolia Home has a butcher block look finished in rustic salvage with a chimney metal frame and legs. The pieces add a sense of history and character to your room.
