Fixer Upper Season 4, Episode 1


When we started working on a design concept for the Chapman home, I liked that Brittany and Andrew loved the traditional style, but didn’t want it to be too formal. They wanted their home to be comfortable, welcoming and a space they could entertain in without it feeling stuffy.

From there, “relaxed traditional” is what I started calling the Chapman’s design style. It also encompassed a few traditional and french touches throughout the space.

Living + Dining

Objective: Create a comfortable living and dining space that blends rustic and traditional styles.

 Kitchen

Objective: Open up the area to the rest of the living space and create an island that can double as a breakfast bar. Add a butler’s pantry with a wine service area for hosting.

Laundry

Objective: A fun wish list item for the laundry room/mudroom was a dog shower for their furry friends.

Master Bedroom

Objective: I wanted to design a space that matches with the traditional ranch style but is a subtle and relaxing retreat for the Chapmans.

Interview with Homeowner

What is your favorite element in the house?

Definitely the fireplace! It’s the focal point of the living room. It was something we weren’t expecting, but we love it. We’ve already been through the whole stack of wood seen on the show, and it hasn’t even gotten really cold in Texas yet!

How did the “dog shower” come about and how has it worked in your home?

We had the silly idea of a dog shower, and Joanna turned it into something that was so much better than we could have imagined. Our chocolate lab is always so excited for bath time.

Have you invited any guests over since the remodel?

It’s been really special to be able to fit the entire family easily. With 20 people in the house, 2 large dogs and 2 little dogs—this is a big accomplishment. We are so excited to host holidays and have even more people over to the house in the future.

The Chapmans were fun clients and we loved working with and getting to know them. Chip and I appreciated their willingness to work with us and give us a few “firsts” of our own! This beautiful home was one for the books, and we hope they live happily here for years to come!
