We’ve all heard about Joanna Gaines and no doubt have seen her in action on her extremely popular HGTV program “The Fixer Upper”, but if you love the classic farmhouse chic look, you’ll love following her on Instagram. When asked about her style Joanna responds, “I tend to stick to a classic look and I like to incorporate character and interest with unexpected décor and design.” If you love her look try replicating it by using subway tiles, rustic woods and exposed industrial piping in your kitchen design.

This classy former lawyer’s design is a reflection of his personality: professional, cool and collected. His spaces are typically more masculine with minimal accessorizing, strong lines and neutral colors. If you want to create a kitchen that is worthy of Darryl’s approval start with white cabinets, pull in simple accessories and use more masculine textiles like wood, leather, stone and iron.

Jonathan’s design philosophy is to “build a timelessly chic foundation, then accessorize with abandon”. His style is often built with a mono or dualchromatic palate, then accessorized with bright and vibrant colors, accessories and his signature, hand thrown pottery.
