A Season Four Sampler

As reported in an earlier post, you can expect some new and different things in the coming episodes of Fixer Upper, as well fresh takes on familiar themes. Not to give too much away (you wouldn’t want us to spoil those trademark reveals, would you?), but we’ve put together a gallery of 50+ photos to whet your appetite for what you might expect in the new season — with detail photos highlighting some of Joanna's latest decorative stylings and staging motifs, exclusive behind-the-scenes pics with Chip and Jo, something tasty from Magnolia Bakery and (if you look very closely) something we’ve alluded to before – “skinnylap”.

The kitchen in the Severns home has been opened up and expanded. Where there was a breakfast nook, there is now another set of french doors, creating a third entrance to the home. A wall between the kitchen and living space has come down. A new island was built and there are new light fixtures, appliances, countertops and cabinetry. There is an antique door leading to the laundry room and a large chalk board, as seen on Fixer Upper.

More Fun Spaces

As Joanna reported in the Magnolia Market blog, this season will have plenty of the classic-meets-contemporary design aesthetic that Fixer Upper fans have come to know and crave, but with some new points of focus. To wit, an emphasis on some of special and tucked-away spaces we’ve not seen as much of before. Think outside the box — beyond the kitchen, living-dining room and master suite. Think mudrooms, craft rooms, home offices and the like.

Blending Classic and Contemporary

"In seasons past we’ve renovated whole homes, but only been able to show the exterior and a few rooms," writes Joanna. "This year we’ll be branching out and showing off unique sitting nooks, fun playrooms and even a space that was specially designed for a client’s sweet furry friends." A doggy spa, perhaps? You’ll just have to wait and see.

For the Kiddos

Among those special spaces are a variety of rooms custom designed for clients’ kids — a girls’ bedroom in delicate pink with tasteful and feminine touches, a boys’ bedroom with custom loft bed and study nook, a girl’s playroom with an emphasis on children’s books — those are just for starters.

The Power of Cupcakes

And premiering this Valentine’s Day, the Fixer Upper Bakery special gives viewers a look inside the new Magnolia Bakery at the recently opened Silos headquarters. Let’s just say Joanna gives cupcake creation an attention to detail that’s on par with that she gives to decorating homes.

Chip and Joanna at Work

As we hinted earlier in a blog post on I-Heart-HGTV, you can expect some new and different things in the coming episodes of Fixer Upper as well fresh takes on familiar themes. (Spoiler alert: There will be cupcakes.)

Things you can expect in the new season include – but are by no means limited to – a focus on more unique and tucked-away spaces, lots of kids' rooms and at least one space created with four-footed occupants in mind.

Chip and Joanna at Work

For Joanna-design devotees, expect a new take on shiplap and (wait for it) ventures into bolder, brighter colors. Don't worry, though. The soft grays, bright whites and subtle shades of blue aren't likely to go away.
