So have we all had time to soak up every last detail of the Fixer Upper Cargo Ship House yet? What are your thoughts? I am in LOVE with the interior. Exterior…not so much. I mean they did an awesome job with what they had to work with, but that porch seems to be a little much in my opinion. I do love the color they chose though.
Fixer Upper Cargo Ship House
With the start of a new season of Fixer Upper, I’m going to start a new series where I will document all the details and show YOU where to get the same or similar items. I know it’s always hard when you see a light fixture or certain item in one of the shows, and then you spend a bajillion hours looking for it online only to come up empty. I already spend a bajillion hours online, so I might as well share all my finds with you – right? 😉
So let’s get started! (scroll all the way down for shopping sources & links!)
Kitchen & Dining
Functionality: I absolutely love the flow and design of the kitchen. It has a great work triangle with the main sink featured in the island and a smaller prep sink to the side. When designing kitchens, it’s important to think how you will use the space. Do you love to bake? Then a double oven is a great addition. If you’re always ordering take-out, then spend your money on something that’s more important to you like a gorgeous light fixture.
Design: This kitchen features two main design elements: color & texture. Joanna kept things light and bright by using a soft neutral paint color on the walls and white perimeter cabinets. She chose a bolder navy blue color with green undertones for the island and stove hood. (To see some of her favorite paint colors check out this post.) Then she warmed everything up with those amazing faux wood beams, antique wood door, and wood crates.
Lighting: Aren’t those pendant lights fabulous? ===> you can purchase them here. Joanna definitely has a knack for choosing unique light fixtures that become the focal point of a room. So what’s the moral of the story here? When designing your space, don’t skimp on lighting! It can really make a difference between a ho-hum space and a room that makes you say WOW.
Comfy & Casual Dining – the dining space just off the kitchen features the trestle table from Joanna’s furniture line and these (similar) slipcovered parsons chairs are comfy but clean up quick in the washer. The french country chandelier is the perfect accent to the open concept space.
I’ll be updating the post once I finish sourcing items for the other rooms so be sure to pin this for later, and follow my Fixer Upper Cargo House pinterest board for more info!
