Happy Friday! Welcome to the latest installment in my Inspiration Notebook…
Are you a fan of the show Fixer Upper and/or Chip and Joanna Gaines? I sure am. It’s been fun to see how Chip and Joanna Gaines have grown their business and brand over the last few years and I’m excited about Joanna’s newest product introductions, Magnolia Home Paint and Magnolia Home Furniture.
First let me talk about the paint line…
Working with KILZ, Joanna has developed an interior paint collection that include 25 signature colors available in three finishes–Matte, Eggshell and Satin. In addition to interior wall paint, there is also a Cabinetry and Furniture paint available in 2 colors in a Semi-Glass sheen. Although not inexpensive ($40-$50 per gallon), the collection includes a great range of classic colors including lots of neutrals which is definitely the trend in interior colors these days.
One of the things I like about the paint collection is that Joanna kept the line true to her brand and developed colors that are timeless and easy to decorate around. And you just had to know that there would be a color called Ship Lap in the line. My favorite colors in the collection are Wedding Band, Rainy Days and Carter Creme.
All of the colors are reminiscent of colors that have been used on Fixer Upper so it will be easy to ‘get the look’ if it fits your style.
One of my favorite homes from this season was the Carriage House. The house was designed in a neutral color palette with pops of color to keep the design interesting, warm and inviting.
Always a winning combination….Neutral walls with accent colors used on architectural details and statement furniture pieces.
I will never get tired of a white and grey kitchen. The grey adds just the right amount of warmth and depth, and keeps the entire space from feeling stark.
And gray walls in a bedroom can feel causal and elegant at the same time.
Even the design of the paint cans is representative of the Magnolia Brand and I must say it’s pretty cool.
The interior paint collection is available in a 8 oz sample cans and also in a one-gallon size. The cabinetry and furniture collection is available in a quart and one-gallon size.
If you’re interested in trying the Magnolia Paint line, the only place you can currently buy it is through the Magnolia Market shop.
Another exciting launch for Magnolia Home happened last week with the introduction of the Magnolia Home Furniture Collection at the High Point Furniture Market. The furniture line in made up of 6 different collections, each with a distinct look. And each collection includes a range of items from bedroom furniture to living and dining room pieces.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the line:
This is the Traditional Double Pedestal Table and I just love the design and detail of the base.
I’m sure this Manor Straight Back Iron Canopy Bed will be a top seller for them.
And I love furniture that offers stylish storage like this Primitive Hardware Shop Dresser.
The furniture line began arriving in stores across the country last month so check your area to see it in person. Or you can view the full line here.
It’s evident from my visit to Magnolia Market last month in Waco and the new product launches from Chip and Joanna, the Magnolia Brand is here to stay. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Chip and Joanna and I’m already looking forward to the next season of Fixer Upper.
Like many of you, I too have become a big fan of the HGTV design show Fixer Upper and Chip and Joanna Gaines. There is just something magical in the way they can transform a worn down house into a charming, personality filled home and make it look as easy as a summer afternoon in the south.
Since the odds of being on Fixer Upper or hanging out with Chip and Joanna are pretty slim, the next best thing for getting a little Magnolia magic is to visit their retail store in Waco, TX. I was thrilled when I got the chance to do just that at the beginning of the month.
Magnolia Market and the silos is a magical place. You can feel it the minute you enter the downtown area of Waco and begin to see the traffic building as the silos loom in the near distance.
Hello friends. I am absolutely swamped catching up from my trip to Texas and I’m dealing with a bit of a cold but I did want to pop in and share a few sneak peeks of the trip with you. There was so much to see and do so I’ll have part one of my trip for you on Wednesday.
Until then, be tantalized by these photos…
Round Top Antiques Market was awesome but prices like these were few and far between…
There was tons of silver…some good and some bad and some dealers were just not dealing…
Along with some amazing antiques, there was lots of vintage (real and reproductions) throughout the show…
I spotted something on my shopping list but the prices were definitely not what I wanted to pay…
Gorgeous blue and white chinoiserie everywhere and lots of unique pieces I’ve never seen before…
My one regret! I wish I would have pulled the trigger on these grapes…
We dined at Royer’s Cafe in downtown Round Top and had the most amazing pies….
We visited the Capitol building in Austin and I was mesmerized by all the stunning trims, molding and woodwork…
even the door hardware was amazing.
We made our way to Waco to visit the world-famous silos and Magnolia Market.
The only words to describe it are…so Chip & Joanna, crowded beyond belief, cute as a button and BIG!
They’ve cornered the market on cute magnolia designs like the hand-drawn magnolia flower.
and Chip’s red truck was too cute!
I can’t wait to share the rest of the adventure with you.
Today is a big day! Today I’m checking off a bucket list item and heading to Round Top, TX to shop the famous Round Top Antiques market. I’ve wanted to go to Round Top for years and the planets aligned this year and I’m doing it….
