Did you see my other post featuring my favorite Fixer Upper renovation?

Up for consumption today is a Fixer Upper take on a historical project for Courtney and Joey Scrivano, who were ready to upgrade from their modest loft to a house where they could raise their child. Built in 1927, this Tudor-style home needed updates since it was lacking in functionality and modernity. One of the major priorities was creating a beautiful and true master bedroom suite. With their renovation budget of $200,000, Chip and Joanna Gaines tackled this fixer upper home, all the while preserving the home’s historic charm.

Ready to explore decor inspiration from this beautiful home renovation where the FIXER UPPER crew breathed new life and love into it in order to meet the needs of a new modern family? Awesome. (Affiliate links follow and when used to complete purchases may earn me a small commission.) Onward.

Paint Color Ideas – Scrivano Tudor Fixer Upper Episode

Interior Paint colors? The strategy is painting walls a light color and trim a few shades darker (but still light!).

These are guesses…for the walls? It looks like MAGNOLIA HOME Silos White

Silos White
Silos White – from the Magnolia Home paint line

For the interior trim? It looks like MAGNOLIA HOME Yarn.

Exterior Colors (Guesses!)

The creamy white on the exterior above the brick appears similar or exactly this:

For the exterior trim, this color from Magnolia’s line looks like what they used:

1. Let’s start with the charming CLASSIC kitchen.

What was Ms. Scrivano’s favorite part of the whole renovation? “The banquette in the kitchen, hands down. We use it every day.”

It truly is a design coup in this narrow kitchen! Tucked into the corner like a private cozy nook in your favorite restaurant, it’s perfect for a quiet breakfast for two or a few more if you pull in a couple of the dining chairs. The brass and gold accents add so much classic appeal too.

If you watched this Fixer Upper episode on HGTV, you may recall that Joanna initially did not plan on adding an island, but she then added this airy mobile one, and I am reminded how cost effective a purchased kitchen island is for kitchen designs since so many folks want an island, and they can eat up a chunk of the budget.

Here is another example of a friendly priced mobile island:

2. Living and dining room transformations!

This Tudor came with so many gorgeous details like the Gothic archways, and the decision to paint all the trim light grey to contrast with white walls gave this home a very contemporary, fresh and young update.

The design styles this couple appreciate? “We both appreciate many different styles, from farmhouse to industrial to European, so it was important to us that the character and the personality of the home lead the design, with just touches of what we both like.”

I found the dining chairs!

I found a couple of contenders for the French linen upholstered armchairs in this living room. This first one is very affordable, and the second one costs more but looks worth every penny!

Who would expect such attention to detail in discount furniture? Our Napoleon Traditional French Accent Chair defies expectations with classic contouring, careful color coordination and durable construction.

Isn’t the coat tree fabulous and so unexpected? A great idea in an entry when you want an airy, modern pop of black.

3. A tranquil master bedroom suite.

This master bedroom is not huge, and there were some challenges posed for the master bath since the homeowners insisted on having a full size soaking tub in the relatively small space. But as you will see, Chip and Joanna Gaines made it work. The room is restful, simple, and a wonderful example of smart, small space design.

What did the Scrivanos appreciate about this renovation? For us, it was really fantastic to turn over the renovation project completely.”

Similar bed here:


It was fun to see that Joanna chose a calacatta gold marble hexagon tile for the shower floor in the master bath!(did Joanna see our own fixer upper’s statement wall with the exact tile and copy it? HA! I’m goin’ with that.)

I recognized the shower fixtures right away since they are the same ones we put in our master (Kohler Purist).

The trim kit doesn’t include the valve, which you purchase separately:

You can order this calacatta gold marble hex tile in a 2″ or 1″ tile configuration. I was just explaining to my friend Denise yesterday that tiling with mosaic sheets is the frackinBOMB for DIYers since you’re not buttering each of those individual tiles and spacing them. Instead, the 12″ sheets go up a lot quicker. Here’s the tile:

The choice to do inlaid tile in the wood floor was interesting yet not my favorite. I think I would prefer a cozy rug. To each his own!

I’m loving the porch furniture, and I have always loved this Safavieh chair which would be right at home on the porch:

    Totally swoon-worthy in my book! I especially love the light walls and pale gray trim throughout.

    And now….. The banquet table you had a link to? Well I looked at it and said “OMG! I have the exact, yes THE exact same table!” So I clicked the link to see what the cost was. Are ya sittin’ down? I paid only $10 for my table ๐Ÿ™‚ Sure it was used and needed a teeeeny bit of TLC, but the price difference was worth it. (The seller said she ‘just wanted to get rid of it’. )

    I’d gladly live in this redone fixer-upper. Very much my style ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for this post. A great eye candy to start my day with.

      I love it when they have to work within the footprint without knocking down walls, etc. because then you get to see how to honestly pack a lot of function and design into small, often awkward spaces. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for reading!

    I loved this episode! I wish I knew what the wall and trim paint is. Iโ€™ve looked on the Magnolia website but itโ€™s not listed. Do you have any idea?

    • michele
      March 21, 2018 / 11:33 am

      Hi Nancy! I’ll be doing a story on the best light grey to use for trim and cabinets, and I have two suggestions for you to start with. Magnolia has a paint line, and YARN looks very close to the color and may be it. Another one that springs to mind is Benjamin Moore’s GRAY OWL. If you look at these greys on Pinterest, you’ll get a feel for them. Happy painting, and thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love so much about this remodel! I’m wondering about the fireplace- do you know if they just plastered over the brick and painted it? It’s fantastic.

    • michele
      March 21, 2018 / 1:51 pm

      Hmmmmmm. I’ll watch the episode again and see if they cover that part of the remodel. Thanks for reading!

  7. March 21, 2018 / 1:19 pm

    This is gorgeous! It so Chip n Joanna! The paint on the walls and trim looks so luxurious and my favorite thing – the skinny vintage doors in the kitchen. Perfection!

    • michele
      March 21, 2018 / 1:50 pm

      Those doors are inspiring, aren’t they? My dream is to first shop for all my favorite vintage doors and then design a new house for them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I loved this “fixed-up” Tudor. I tape their shows so I can watch the final reveal over and over until I’m certain I haven’t missed one single element! Great sources, Michele, that chesterfield sofa is a bargain! Wish I didn’t love the sofa I have.

    I love how they kept all the charm of this old house but made it fresh. The added trim, remodeled kitchen and grey paint all add up to a very livable house, with charm.
    I wanted to comment on the fact that you give us information. Answering questions to the best of your ability or information is an added bonus. For that, I think you!

    • michele
      March 22, 2018 / 12:32 am

      Yes – so refreshing that this was not one of those huge demofests where the “reno” is more accurately new construction. I truly want to help and stay engaged and accessible – no robots chatting it up here yet! ๐Ÿ™‚

          May 22, 2018 / 9:56 am

          I haven’t found it! I wonder if it belonged to the homeowner or was custom made by someone in Waco? I feel like I need to begin making these since there is obviously demand! Thanks for reading. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I watched this episode for the first time on 4-24-18 and I noticed the wavy subway tile in the master shower. Itโ€™s the same tile I used in mine in January!! Then I found your picture of the shower on Pinterest and I have the same hexagon floor tile too!! Did she copy my shower? ??? plus the marble top pieces and the door! I couldnโ€™t believe it!!

    • michele
      April 26, 2018 / 7:52 pm

      They totally copied you! Where’s your commission and piece of the pie!?! Ha. You have excellent taste. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What is the names of the paint used. Please answer ASAP! I absolutely love the color of the walls and trim! I would appreciate your help!

    • michele
      June 3, 2018 / 1:26 pm

      I’m happy to help, friend! Those colors have not yet been shared by Fixer Upper. When I turned to the Magnolia Home paint line (this is your best strategy to get those colors), I found that SILOS WHITE and YARN look very similar to the colors used in the Scrivano project. The key is choosing a light creamy white for walls and then a warm light grey for trim. Another strategy? If you cue this blog post up on your phone at the paint store, you could enlarge the images and look at swatches next to the screen. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • michele
      January 12, 2019 / 9:09 pm

      Awwwwww–thank you so much for commenting and the kind words. I know just the type of doors you’re referring to, and that Joanna collects so many beautiful ones! I think what makes the ones we see on Fixer Upper extra special is that she has a crew who can strip or sand them down to the natural wood. There is just nothing like those scrubbed, natural, light wood doors that can be sealed with a clear matte finish. I’ll try to do a story about them soon!

      I studied photos and the colors from Magnolia, and the colors appear close to or exactly these (from Magnolia paint): Silos White (the cream above brick) and Cuupola (the taupe-like grey trim). I added these to the post.

    The black and white kitchen floor..any information you can give. It doesn’t look as it is as brite as a black and white floor and I am looming for that.
