My favorite HGTV show is Fixer Upper – where the darling couple Chip & Joanna Gaines help a family buy a major fixer-upper and turn it into something jaw dropping. Chip takes on the reno, Joanna works her magic on the design and interiors. She is beautiful and fashionable (I want all of her outfits) and has great farmhouse/cottagy/classic design taste.
I was asked to create a custom watercolor with Joanna’s design essentials and was beyond excited to see what I could create.
Joanna’s design essentials are more theory than actual items, so it was a fun challenge to figure out how to draw ideas like balance and texture.
We worked to come up with great pieces that reflected these ideas and what resulted is a whimsical collection of pretty essentials that would look great in any home. Joanna runs a shop called Magnolia Market in Waco, Texas as well as a great online shop so we used items from there as our inspiration.
The prints are being used for promotional purposes, they’ll be slipped into packages and orders and available at Joanna’s big fall workshop.
Curious about what her design essentials are?
unique light fixtures
good faux florals
pops of color
Such a fun project that I was honored to be part of.
