I can’t say that I have watched all seasons of one of the most popular shows on HGTV, Fixer Upper. Admittedly, I work a lot and I don’t have much time for TV shows, but the more I searched for farmhouse interior ideas, the more the names of Chip and Joanna Gaines came up. That’s when I decided to sit down and see what the buzz about Fixer Upper was all about. It took one episode for me to become one of their newest fan and let’s face it, you can’t be a fan of the show if you don’t like modern farmhouse interiors.
Here I am sharing the 6 Fixer Upper inspired farmhouse interior trends designed by many interior designers that have also brought this look to their clients’ homes.
1: Modern Farmhouse Exterior
Joana and Chip often use white and mix materials on the homes they design. White, or off-white, like we see above, is a hot color when it comes to farmhouse living, on the exterior as well as on the interior. When this classic color is paired with industrial and non-conventional materials it becomes a perfect match.
Shiplap has quickly become a favorite thanks to Joanna & Chip Gaines. Here, Romanelli & Hughes Custom Home Builders added floor-to-ceiling shiplap on the walls and used a dark grey, Sherwin Williams Black Fox, to bring some drama to the space.
3: Black & White
Black and white never looked so beautiful and it works even better when paired with shiplap and warm wood!
4: Barn Door
Barn doors have been seen in many Fixer Upper episodes and I specifically like this one, designed by Gulfshore Design. Simple whitewashed pine planks make a great barn door!
5: Reclaimed Wood
Reclaimed and warm wood tones will always be a player when it comes to farmhouse designs. This farmhouse kitchen, designed by Markalunas Architecture Group, features thick Carrara marble slab countertop, reclaimed beams, brick backsplash and metal shelves beside zinc hood.
6: Subway Tile with Dark Grout
Subway tile with dark grout is a hit to farmhouse style. This grout is Delorean Gray.
