BTW, have you ever considered visiting Fixer Upper land in Waco? I was able to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos as well as Magnolia Table and shared 22 Tips to Know Before You Go!

I’m crazy about this historical project for Waco residents Courtney and Joey Scrivano, who fell in love with a 1927 Tudor-style home whose interiors were in desperate need of upgrades, renovation, function, and style.

One of the major priorities expressed by the couple to Chip and Joanna was the desire for a lovely and luxe master bedroom suite. Their healthy renovation budget of $200,000 was smartly applied to the architecture and interior design of this cottage style home, and in the end, the home’s historic charm remained intact.

Paint Color Ideas – FIXER UPPER Scrivano Tudor Interior

Interior Paint color palette? The color palette incorporated in the Scrivano house renovation entailed painting the walls a light color and painting the trim a few shades darker (yet still light and airy!).

Joanna Gaines has her favorite classic paint colors she returns to again and again (they became her own Magnolia paint line!) so while these are just guesses for the interior colors, they are well informed guesses!

For the interior walls, it looks like they chose MAGNOLIA HOME Silos White.

For the interior trim? It looks like MAGNOLIA PREMIUM INTERIOR PAINT: Yarn or Wedding Band. While these hues vary, it is hard to pinpoint the light grey color without seeing it in person!

Exterior Paint Colors (Guesses!)

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

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

Vintage & charming CLASSIC kitchen design elements.

Ms. Scrivano revealed that her favorite element of the whole renovation is the banquette in the kitchen.

And are we even surprised? That custom banquette bench is truly a design triumph since the original 1920’s kitchen is narrow! By building it into the corner (like a private cozy nook in a favorite restaurant!), it became this timelessly special place for a tranquil breakfast for two. It also lends itself to pulling in a couple more dining chairs for more seating.

What do you think of the brass and gold accents?

Scrivano Kitchen: Banquette or Bench Ideas

Custom built-ins can get pricey very fast because of the cost of labor, and there is also the consideration that they are semi-permanent. An alternative is purchasing a banquette or bench, and here are some ideas. Bear in mind (1) the depth of these pieces (will you have enough room in your nook or space?) and (2) the potential to customize these pieces with paint and/or upholstery (don’t write off a piece just because you don’t like the stain finish…you can always paint!).

Scrivano Kitchen: Kitchen Island Ideas

You may recall in this HGTV Fixer Upper episode with the Scrivano house, Joanna initially had not planned to add an island. However, when the other fixtures were in place, she added an airy mobile petite work island.

I made the same decision in my own kitchen when I added a vintage industrial steel work cart with casters to give myself extra work space…read about it HERE.

In our Lovely Tranquil Classic Kitchen is a mix of modern and vintage design elements. An industrial steel cart (painted Annie Sloan Paris Grey), Shaker cabinetry, marble subway tile backsplash, stainless pro appliances, fireclay farm sink, white oak hardwood flooring, and Viatera Minuet quartz on counters. #hellolovelystudio #whitekitchen #serenedecor #timelessdesign #modernfarmhouse #europeanfarmhouse #industrialcart #marblesubwaytile #whiteoak #viateraquartz #minuet #anniesloanparisgrey #steelcart

If you have ever designed a kitchen from scratch and ordered kitchen cabinets (ready made or custom), then you know how expensive it is to create a kitchen island or work table. If you’re on a budget AND to create a more interesting and less cookie cutter look, consider a freestanding island or work table you can snag for much less expense.

Here is another example of a friendly priced mobile island:

Scrivano living and dining room decorating ideas!

This fixer upper cottage came with so many gorgeous Tudor details, including Gothic archways and beautiful trim. The decision to paint all the trim with light grey paint to subtly contrast with creamy white walls resulted in a traditional yet fresh vintage style mood.

The Scrivanos mentioned in an interview with Magnolia that they admire more than one design style (including industrial farmhouse and European inspired style).

In terms of hardware within this beautiful Tudor home, it appears quite similar to the exact oil rubbed bronze oval knobs I put in my own home. I can’t sing their praises enough, and photos just don’t do these knobs justice. The hand feel is superb!

Did you notice the lovely coat tree in the Scrivano home? In a small 1920s cottage, you can bet there is a shortage of storage space.

Here’s a great idea to hang coats in an entry when you want an airy, modern pop of black.

Tranquil master bedroom suite.

Since the Scrivano’s original master bedroom was not huge, here were some challenges posed for the master bath. The owners were adamant about incorporating a freestanding soaking tub in the little space so extra creativity and innovation was required.

The finished master bedroom suite is simple, timeless, and tranquil…a testament to smart, small space design.

Master Bathroom Calacatta Hex Tile

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:

What did you think about the design decision to inlay tile with the wood floor? I would have preferred just the wood with a cozy rug. To me that is a more conservative and timeless choice, but what do you think?

Scrivano Porch Ideas

Isn’t the porch renovation and how they opened it all up, amazing? I have always adored this woven chair which would be right at home on the porch:

    I love the character of a freestanding kitchen island that doesn’t match all the cabinets. A farm table would work also. Thanks for sharing the Scrivano ideas and paint colors. They have nailed the cottage look!

      Thanks for playing along, lovely maker. Wish I had an excuse to be in your neck of the woods this moment – the roads were slick today, and the storm has begun! 🙂
