Do You Find Inspiration from HGTV’s Fixer Upper?

Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, have started a huge following by many homeowners and renters.  Many watch the television show and want to decorate their home’s interior as if Joanna Gaines was their interior designer.

This husband and wife duo has created a huge empire of flipping houses.  Their television show is about a couple that finds a house to fix up.  Chip and Joanna Gaines show them a few properties and describe how they will fix up the house.  The homeowner decides which house they want to purchase.  Once they close on the property, Chip and Joanna begin working on the house.  Some of their design techniques include decluttering, open spaces, shiplap, white walls, updated front porches and back decks, and updated bathrooms and kitchens.  In the end, the house is completely transformed to fit the owner. Chip and Joanna currently also have their own paint line and home décor line.

Many people are taking inspiration from their design techniques and incorporating them into their own homes including paint colors, lighting fixtures, décor and much more.  As a real estate investor, do you use any of the trends from the show to rehab your properties?  Unfortunately, Fixer Upper is in their last season.  Do you think décor trends will change once the show is over?
