5 ‘Fixer Upper’ Decor Formulas That Are So Easy to Re-create

PureWow

While we can’t get behind every Joanna Gaines decor decision (hi, giant clocks), we must admit: The woman has a great eye for bringing a room together. Here are five clean, clever, and awfully pretty design ideas that work for modern farmhouses and tiny apartments alike.

Window + Writing Desk + Wing Chair = Study

Not every floor plan can stomach a private office – but that’s no excuse to skip a workstation altogether. Here, she faked one in a sunny corner using a shallow, live-edge desk and a cozy leather lounge chair pushed up against a window. Sigh.

Mirror + Floating Table + Sconces = Big(ger) Bedroom

In this teeny bedroom, a giant mirror gives the illusion of an airy passageway, while shallow, wall-mounted ledges and lighting free up plenty of floor space. The result? A compact – but not at all claustrophobic – boudoir.

Chairs + Trellis + Flower Boxes = Alfresco Living Room

Getting scale right in an outdoor space is tricky. We love how Jo created a “room” here by stacking XL window boxes against a “wall” of woodwork and pairing with a set of easy chairs and coffee table.

Bookshelf + Baskets + Canisters = Playroom

To mimic this pretty playroom, turn a bookshelf into toy storage central command. Leave the cutest toys out on display as decorative objects, organize craft supplies in canisters, and tuck anything unsightly in uniform baskets on the top shelves. (Bonus points for a macaron box paint job.)

Bench + Plant + Artwork = Foyer

Less is more when it comes to entryway styling, and here, Jo opted for a high-backed, church pew bench (perfect for tying shoes or tossing your handbag), an oversize fiddle-leaf fig tree and serene botanical print artwork. Anyone else feeling inspired to toss their cluttered coat pegs?
