    5 Easy Ways To Create A More Comfortable Home

    Home is where you feel happy, secure, comfortable, and at ease. We all love our home. We spend a lot of money (and time) on interior designing and other decor ideas to make our house look a specific way. Everyone wants their home to reflect their personality and sense of style. We are more of ourselves at our home than anywhere else. That's the reason no matter where we go, we always want to come back home.

    5 Easy Ways To Create Fixer Upper Style

    5 Easy Ways To Create Fixer Upper Style

    Joanna and Chip Gaines have certainly changed the home renovation game. Their farmhouse, modern rustic style is right on point with our favourite trends and we're constantly inspired by their commitment to excellence (who isn't?!).

    When it comes time to redo your own favourite spaces, the cost and the project ideas can often be overwhelming for the everyday, non-professional home owner. You may not be creating from scratch, and you may not have months to complete the changes. 

    Have no fear! We've put together a list that can help save you the headaches and confusion. Check out our 5 easy tips to creating your own fixer upper style and see just how simple it can be to create your perfect happy place. 

    1. Quote Art 

    You can find almost any quote art nowadays for affordable prices. And if you're feeling crafty and adventurous you can DIY your own. From song lyrics and bible verses, to daily mantras and clever puns, the oversized wall art is your first step to fixer upper interior style. 

    2. Oversized Clocks 

    An oversized clock hung in the entryway or above the mantel in your living room can completely change the space. The industrial style timekeepers are the perfect way to add a touch of vintage charm and fixer upper style to your home, and they continue to be one of Joanna's favourite interior accessories. 

    3. Boxwood Wreaths 

    The rustic, natural charm of preserved boxwood wreaths works year round for any home. They pair perfectly with antique mirrors and vintage window frames, and are a quick and easy way to add a touch of fixer upper style to your home (find O&F handmade boxwood wreaths on Etsy). 

    4. Subway Tile

    Renovating your kitchen can be a long process. Finding the best backsplash, seating and sink can take ages, especially if you're working with your partner or spouse. We all have different styles and if you're doing it yourself, without a professional, knowing what to do can be difficult. Subway tile backsplash is a smart, simple and easy decision you can make right now for a fixer upper style kitchen of your dreams. And you'll want to stick to natural textiles (like our O&F linen tea towels) and green, natural accents. 

    5. Pipe Shelving 

    The industrial chic look of pipe shelving is one of our favourite fixer upper interior accents, and can be used in almost any room of the home. From bathrooms and bedrooms, to entryways and kitchens, it's easy to find affordable designs or create your own pipe shelving. Add a few vintage books and wildflowers and voila! You've got the perfect new wall space.
