Home Tour: Joanna Gaines’ Personal Farmhouse

It’s hard to argue that Joanna Gaines has had a huge impact on the decorating world. Her signature brand of rustic style, dubbed “farmhouse,” has inspired people all over to redecorate their homes with the shabby chic meets cottage aesthetic. Blending antique and unfinished wood accents with elegant, contemporary features, Joanna’s style has inspired a whole generation of homeowners.

While it was the many homes Joanna and her husband have renovated on their show Fixer Upper that got people’s attention, it’s no surprise that their own home is the pinnacle of her now-famous style. It’s filled with every feature that makes up the farmhouse style. If you love farmhouse decor, then you’re sure to fall head-over-heels for their family home.

Home Tour: Alec Baldwin’s 18th Century Farmhouse

Actor Alec Baldwin has owned a farmhouse in Amagansett, East Hampton since 1995, but he recently renovated it with his wife Hilaria to turn it into the peaceful, family retreat that it is today. The home is full of soft neutrals and rustic touches that create a sense of serenity. While the design elements are all upscale and elegantly crafted, the atmosphere is actually quite modest and comfortable.

They live in the home with their three kids, all of whom are under the age of 3, so there is plenty of room for them to spread their wings and for their parents to entertain large amounts of guests. It is simultaneously cozy and able to support big gatherings, making it the perfect home for a growing family.

Take a peek inside this gorgeous farmhouse that was featured in Elle Decor to get some great inspiration.

10 Savvy Shiplap Looks for the Home

Shiplap is a wall treatment that has been trending in home design lately. While it has been showing up a lot more in homes in the last year or so, it’s not a new look — in fact, shiplap is a classic design choice that has never gone out of style and looks great in a variety of ways.

What sets shiplap apart from other wood paneling is the width of the boards and horizontal layout. Wood paneling comes in a lot of different variations, but shiplap is very distinct by these two features. It is usually used as an exterior for rustic structures like sheds and barns, but it brings a lot of character to interior spaces, too.

Here are 10 stylish examples of shiplap walls in various different styles, from country chic to contemporary.
