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!)
Get the Look: FIXER UPPER European Country Style
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!?!
Since we’re huge admirers of the show, we made it a point to visit Fixer Upper’s home base in Waco, Texas, where we explored Magnolia Market at the Silos, the bakery, Magnolia Table (their new restaurant!), and even their farmhouse!

Farm Sink in Island
The fireclay farm sink in the island is similar to this one:
Island Light Fixtures
It looks like Joanna used these popular Bolton lanterns from Pottery Barn over the island.
Here is a another slightly more modern farmhouse style lantern pendant:
Here’s another lantern…the exact one Joanna Gaines actually used in the little garden shed I visited at Magnolia Market in Waco!

Kitchen Floor Tile Idea
The terracotta tiles in the Ignacio kitchen are octagon-shaped (Saltillo – Cotta Dark from Arto), and here is a similar alternative with hex tiles, made of porcelain:
Here’s a fabulous oversized wall clock you may like even more than the one on the show!
Kitchen Decor Accessory Ideas
Joanna Gaines found a lovely vintage pitcher to accessorize the Ignacio kitchen, but there are so many pretty ones for you to snag!

Kitchen Backsplash Ideas
The source of the beautiful handpainted tile backsplash behind the range? Arabesque 8 in. Winslet Blend (Bottega Design Gallery)…if it isn’t available or within the budget, here are some glorious options.

Did you love the rustic arched wood door with the little window? It is slightly reminiscent of my own front door with its walnut stain:
European Country Laundry Room
Here’s another room I loved in the Ignacio’s Hot Sauce house! The laundry room’s simple country sink, farmhouse pendant, and stenciled or handpainted design on the white brick was so charming.
If you like this look, I found the exact fixtures! Yay! Here’s the country sink…

And the beautiful wall mount faucet for the laundry room sink…
Just in case you need a rub-on whimsical design for a laundry room wall…
European Country Living Room
If you like the look of the mirror, I have you covered.
European Country Dining 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!
The mirror in here is SUPER popular for interior designers – Sarah Richardson uses it over and over, and that’s good enough for me!
Here’s the exact mirror Joanna used for the powder room bathroom;
