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 episode where the Ignacio family’s “Hot Sauce House” gets majorly made over? Have you also viewed it 30 times like I have? I can never seem to change the channel when this particular Fixer Upper episode airs (Episode 14 from Season 4). So many details to note!

If you’re in the mood for less rustic interiors which were designed with a more robust budget, see THIS DITTY with timeless Old World romance!
(This Fixer Upper episode was my no. 1 favorite until I saw a glorious Mediterranean home they created!)
Rustic Yet Refined European Country Style
The Ignacio 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. But not this one!

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 may be!?!

European Country Kitchen Design Elements
Farm Sink in Island
The fireclay farm sink in the island is similar to this one:
We also have an apron front farm sink in our kitchen, for that exact one, find it HERE.
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…very reminiscent of one Joanna Gaines installed in the little garden shed I visited at Magnolia Market in Waco!

Here’s a kitchen faucet with an oil rubbed bronze finish which is quite comparable to the one in the Fixer Upper Hot Sauce house:

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!
For lovely vintage ironstone pitcher possibilities, SEE THESE.
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.

Get the Look: FIXER UPPER European Country Style
Did you love those rustic rocking chairs from this episode Joanna Gaines chose for the front porch? Here are some similar chairs:
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 still popular with interior designers – Sarah Richardson uses it over and over, which is good enough for me!
Here’s the exact mirror Joanna used for the powder room bathroom;

What Joanna did with that garage is nothing short of miraculous!! Thanks for all the great ideas, my friend!
It’s true! I wonder how many garage conversions this renovation inspired!?!
Thanks for this! I have been looking for these resources for 8 months! Do you know what wood species they used on the island? Also do you know the beam species and stain? Thanks!!
I’ll take a look and make some guesses on those since I haven’t come across sources yet.
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!!!
Hahaha! I have been to the ends of the internet – the secret is out! 🙂
Do you know the exterior house color, brick included and color of shutters. Stone on pillars. Thank you much for your help
I’ll take a closer look and let you know.
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 🤞🤞
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.
Does anyone know where I can find the tile used on the kitchen backsplash? Manufacturer, style name, anything? I am in Fort Worth TX and would love that for my backsplash.
It’s right here: Kitchen Backsplash – Arabesque 8 in. Winslet Blend (Bottega Design Gallery). Hope this helps, and thanks for reading – come back often!
Could you tell me what color you think the shingles are on the Hot Sauce house from Fixer upper? I feel like they are black, but I just can’t tell for sure. I truly appreciate. This house is the inspiration for my current fixer upper.
Hi there. That house went on the market and there are some good shots of the roof which you can expand on your screen to see the color – looks like it is brown. Here is the article: https://www.realtor.com/news/unique-homes/rustic-italian-dream-home-fixer-upper-season-4-for-sale/
Thank you so so much!!!
My pleasure! Best to you.
Hi! We are painting our house soon, and I am dying to know the paint colors on the exterior of this house. I saw you think Alabaster for the brick, but any idea what the color of the trim is around the windows? Thanks!
Hi there. To me, it looks like a light French Gray, and here’s a contender from a collection from HGTV called Intuitive Gray: https://rstyle.me/+p6CXmsBeULrmlpWc0Y0daA
Thanks for the info on this home! Do you have any idea about the wood flooring that was used?
i don’t but i will get on it. thx for reading 🙂
Do you know the trim color in the great room of this house? I’ve tried (and painted) two different colors, thinking I had the right one and was wrong each time. I need a ‘win’!
Even though the topic of my post today is “putty” colors, you’ll find several light grey neutrals in it that might be the ticket. Specifically, check out Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray and even though it’s not on the list, Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. Here’s the post: https://www.hellolovelystudio.com/2020/09/perfect-putty-paint-colors-for-kitchens-beyond.html
beautiful! Do you know the name of the kitchen countertops?
Looks a lot like Calacatta Nuovo quartz from Caesarstone.
Really wish I knew where the kitchen chairs are from. They are my dream chairs. Thoughts?
I mean the chairs at the dining table.
I think these are very similar: https://rstyle.me/+S4_KIRpEQGYJCcp1U7e46g Let me know what you think.
