Get the Look: FIXER UPPER European Country Style

Get the Look: FIXER UPPER European Country Style explores one of my favorite renovation projects from Chip and Joanna Gaines on HGTV’s Fixer Upper! Have you seen the show where the Ignacio family’s “Hot Sauce House” gets majorly made over? Have you viewed it 30 times like I have? Because I can’t seem to change the channel when this particular Fixer Upper episode airs (Episode 14 from Season 4). Too many details to note!

If you’re in the mood for less rustic interiors which were designed with more robust budgets, see THIS RECENT DITTY where I hope I don’t bore you with too much talk of romance!

(This Fixer Upper episode used to be my no. 1 favorite until I saw a glorious Mediterranean home they created!)

What better way to admire and appreciate this beautiful project by Joanna and Chip Gaines than to see it up close! Definitely worth viewing for inspiration if you love European country, Mediterranean style, and rustic Italian design elements.

Rustic Yet Refined European Country Style

The Ignacio’s renovated kitchen and family room are definitely my favorite part of the project on Fixer Upper. The great room/family room is a brand new space created from a garage conversion! If you have ever lived in or toured a house with a “finished” or “converted” garage, then you know they are usually awful! This one takes the cake!

I’m truly a fan!

My husband and I have been inspired by FIXER UPPER since its debut, and the two of us indeed had the guts to take on our own fixer upper in 2015, when we bought our current fixer and renovated the whole house by ourselves. In 2016, we bravely made over a second home in Arizona, and who knows where the next fixer will be!?!

Powder Room

The garage area was so large that the Gaines’ were able to design a kitchen, family room, game room, and a powder room in the footprint. The powder room bath is soooooo charming, and if you like the look, you can steal it!

        Thanks!! I have been looking an unable to find it, but I also have not found the info on the cabinet colors and stains until your blog. So you must have a way of getting information!!!

        Hi! I was wondering if you were able to find the exterior colors for brick and shutters. I LOVE these colors and our house is being painted this week. I have to have colors to our painter by Monday. I’ve searched the internet and you are the closest I’ve come to finding the information 🤞🤞

        • Michele
          May 5, 2019 / 12:18 am

          No luck. My best guess is a modern walnut stain on door and shutters and Sherwin Williams Alabaster on brick. How exciting for you guys!

    Do you know the color she used on the shiplap in the powder room?

      It looks like it’s Magnolia “Blanched” or Sherwin-Williams “Alabaster.” Hope this helps.
