HGTV has actually got a big hit on its hands with the Texas-based Fixer Upper– and it’s not difficult to see why. The charming Chip and Joanna Gaines run a remodeling and remodeling company out of a Waco storefront along with their own house, do beautiful work restoring old, run-down homes with loads of capacity, and boast a sweet cadre of kids to boot. Fixer Upper’s first season was a rankings gold mine for the network, and the 2nd reveals no indications of decreasing.
One question neither the network nor the Gains have actually attended to straight is whether or not the newly fortunate households on the show get to keep all the home furnishings that Joanna utilizes to embellish your home when we see the completed product at the end of each episode. There’s constantly a bunch of furniture, a cavalcade of lights, and a host of floral sprays, mantel frames, and sundry other touches to make each house seem like it’s already a lived-in house.
For the numerous fans of Joanna’s embellishing design, the short answer to that concern is: No, the households do not get to keep the home furnishings. Every piece originates from Magnolia Market, the store Joanna runs in Waco and is indeed added to the house to make it feel as relaxing as possible prior to the brand-new owners relocate. Savvy viewers have kept in mind that bigger pieces– sofas, overstuffed armchairs, dining space tables– are often utilized in numerous episodes.
Since they originate from a store, however, the pieces are readily available for purchase– either by those brand-new owners or by excited audiences. Magnolia Market’s site provides almost every piece you’ve seen on Fixer Upper and oodles more. And, because Joanna and Chip have so many artisan contacts from the greater Waco area, you can buy any wood or metalworking piece you’ve seen on the show.
Joanna herself recently attended to the topic of Magnolia furnishings in a Q&A session on her blog site. Here’s what the Magnolia Mommy had to state:
Heather Teems asked: “Hello Jo Jo! Something I’ve constantly questioned when enjoying Fixer Upper- do the customers keep the furnishings and whatever in the home? You constantly stage it so well but typically ‘staging’ a house means that it goes when the brand-new owner moves in. Simply curious!”
Our program features real customers with real budget plans. About half of our clients already have all their own furnishings (some of which I use for the reveal), and others buy the products I decorate the home with. The main reason I decorate the spaces for the reveal is since I desire the customers to get the complete picture of how to optimize their recently refurbished area.
