Outdoors: Curb Appeal for Days

When Chip and Jo roll back that house-sized poster, you'd better believe the yard will be stocked with style to spare. Hallmarks of their front yard game: Curvy stone front walks and mature landscaping, like in this tree-filled lawn.

Outdoors: Greenery-Filled Windowboxes

Joanna loves to add life to a home with lots of plants. No green thumb? No worries! Here, the crew added rustic windowboxes filled with easy-to-care-for spider plants.

Outdoors: A Fab Front Door

A front door doesn't have to be a bold hue to make a statement. To copy the Fixer Upper look, opt for a dark neutral hue or a natural wood version that hints to the modern-rustic details inside.

Outdoors: Twin Container Gardens

Think of it like a set of earrings for your house: Flank that new front door and embrace traditional symmetry with two oversized planters.

Outdoors: Unpainted Wood Accents

Chip and Jo love to accent their homes with unpainted wood accents, which adds a modern touch to more traditional exteriors.

Outdoors: Rocking Chairs

Once you have that big, roomy front porch, it's pretty much mandatory to enjoy it via rocking chair...

Outdoors: Porch Swing

...unless, of course, you'd prefer to cozy up on a porch swing.

Entryway: Family-Friendly Function

Sure, every Fixer Upper home is packed with style. It's also packed with function, especially in the entryway, where Joanna is sure to create space for families to store all the clutter that comes with kids. Got baseball gloves, soccer balls and backpacks? Assign each kid an under-bench cubby to keep the entryway organized and clutter-free.

Entryway: Seating for a Crowd

An entryway bench can double as a staging area for trips or the daily grind. That's why an old church pew is perfect: It's sturdy and spacious, plus scuffs from daily activity will just add character.

On the Walls: Quote Art

Take a cue from Joanna and add something inspirational just inside the door. A glance when you walk in or out could totally change your daily outlook.

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

On the Walls: Magnolia Wreaths

A true signature, Joanna loves to incorporate a magnolia wreath into every home — after all, the family company is called Magnolia Homes.

On the Walls: Life Lessons

Especially in kids' spaces, like this playroom and guest room, Joanna is fond of reminding young minds what's really important.

On the Walls: Oversized Clocks

Large-scale clocks serve as both wall art and as functional pieces that remind kids there's a way to tell time that doesn't involve looking at a screen.

On the Walls: Large Object Art

Joanna loves to personalize her homes with objects that speak to the homeowners personality — yes, even guitars! The lesson? Even non-traditional art can become wall decor when a frame is added. (DO try this at home.)

On the Walls: Vintage Maps

It's easy to see why vintage maps are a wall art standby for Joanna: They add instant history to a wall, whether the home was built last century or last year.

On the Walls: Vintage Mirrors

Snatch these up when you see them at the thrift store; they look as at-home in a Fixer Upper-inspired master bedroom as they do in an entrway.

On the Walls: Vintage Mantels

No fireplace? That doesn't stop Joanna from adding a vintage mantel to the wall, which adds instant architectural detail, not to mention a ready-made display shelf.

On the Walls: So Many Vintage Mantels

They're so versatile, Joanna uses them all over her houses, even in bedrooms.

On the Walls: Salvaged Architectural Pieces

When is a door not a door? When it's a piece of salvaged wall art. Joanna repurposes moldings, doors, windows and more as history-filled wall decor.

In the Living Room: A Cozy Fireplace

No Fixer Upper home would be complete without a hearth (real or faux) to gather around.

In the Living Room: Shiplap

Shiplap is practically Joanna's middle name. If Chip and the crew don't find it under the drywall, they add the rough-hewn wood paneling to add texture on the walls.

In the Living Room: Open Floor Plans

Chip and Joanna love to remove walls and widen doorways to make one room flow into the next.

In the Living Room: Durable Rugs

Natural fiber rugs, like jute or sisal, warm up hardwood floors while hiding dirt, spills and pet hair. Do I need to say more?

In the Living Room: Cozy Furniture

Joanna opts for durable furniture with a sense of history, like leather or linen Chesterfield sofas that look even better after a little wear-and-tear.

In the Living Room: Slipcovers

White slipcovers might seem like an odd choice for a home filled with children, but Joanna and lots of cottage design lovers know a secret: White covers can be throw in the washer with a little bleach, making them even easier to care for than dark colors.

In the Living Room: Modern Pipe Shelving

Galvanized pipe shelving is super-popular with homeowners who love the modern rustic look, for the same reason Chip and Jo love the shelving style: It's easy to build, inexpensive to create and adds industrial style to virtually any space, from a living room to a kitchen to a bathroom.

In the Kitchen: Farmhouse-Style Sinks

Apron-front and farmhouse-style sinks lend even the newest kitchen an air of history, so it's no wonder that Joanna loves to use them in her renovations.

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

In the Kitchen: Vintage-Inspired Plumbing

Leaky, inefficient plumbing from the 1890s? No thanks. Brand new plumbing inspired by the original? Yes, a million times yes.

In the Kitchen: Subway Tile

Whether white or gray, subway tile lends both traditional, classic style and modern simplicity to a kitchen, and also pairs well with the rough-hewn accents of which Chip and Jo are so fond.

In the Kitchen: Island Life

Chip and Joanna work a big island with tons of workspace into almost every kitchen. This one has room for eating, cooking and more, not to mention lots of texture and history thanks to the reclaimed wood used for the base.

In the Kitchen: Vintage-Style Barstools

That big island wouldn't be complete without vintage-style stools, perfect for homework, dinner parties and quick breakfasts.

In the Kitchen: Dramatic Lighting

Industrial pendants are a go-to for Chip and Joanna, since they combine modern style and a bright, functional light source.

In the Kitchen: Open Shelving

Joanna loves to display simple white dishes in front of rough-hewn wood walls or exposed brick. Here, the shelves become a functional focal point.

In the Kitchen: Even More Shiplap

If you're a fan of the show, you know that Chip and Joanna are shiplap-crazy. Here, they used the unpainted version of the material to create a modern-rustic look.

Plant Life: Wildflowers

Wildflowers are beautiful, easy to find and, oh yeah, free, if you know where to look. Here, Joanna displayed them in vintage-style blue glass demijohn bottles.

Plant Life: Two (or Three) of a Kind

What's better than one vase of wild alliums? Two, of course! Grouping vases adds more than twice the visual bang for your buck.

Plant Life: Make That Four of a Kind

See? Flowers are even better in fours.

Extra Accents: Vintage Books

Joanna uses vintag books as the base for colorful plant life, clocks and other accessories. Here, she paired volumes by color to create a cohesive look.

Extra Accents: Vintage Books

Another Joanna-approved trick? Display books spine-side-in for a monochromatic display that lets florals shine. 

Extra Accents: Just Add Candlesticks

Joanna is a huge fan of the ambiance-boosting power of a few candlesticks (or more than a few, as seen here).

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

Door Style: Antique Additions

When it comes to Fixer Upper designs, antique doors often make an appearence in the most unlikely places. These dramatic doors lead into this home's pantry and laundry room.

Door Style: Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a staple on the show. Here, they conceal his and hers closets while adding an architectural element to the master bedroom.

In the Bedroom: White on White on White

Joanna's design mantra? When in doubt, paint it white. Here, white bedding and a salvaged white headboard sit against white shiplap walls. Master this monochromatic look and you're on your way to Fixer Upper-level style.
