We all have a few people we may not actually know but, in our heads, we consider a friend. For me, and probably you, one of those people is Joanna Gaines. I mean, who doesn’t absolutely love Chip and Jo, their adorable farmhouse and their incredible house transformations on HGTV’s Fixer Upper?
As most of you know, I live in the metropolitan area surrounding Washington D.C. My husband works in the heart of the city less than a block away from the White House – so, you can imagine that our neighborhood isn’t exactly as farm-esque as the Gaines’ hometown of Waco, Texas. Despite our city surroundings, we love incorporating farmhouse inspired décor. I particularly love pieces that are personal and/or homemade with a warm. So, I’ve rounded up a handful of my favorite online shops that bring us a little bit of a rustic touch to our suburban home.
A revolutionary family owned store that designs and creates handmade wooden, art prints, and more. Their pieces are gorgeous, unique, and inspirational.
A one stop shop of items designed, handmade, and/or carefully chosen with great care by the wonderfully tasteful Mary Lauren. Sugarhouse has a wide range of eclectic menagerie and pieces that are sure to turn into a family heirloom.
A friend of mine from high school has recently embraced her talent and creativity and started her own custom canvas business. If you’re looking for beautiful and affordable custom art pieces to add to your home – she’s your girl! I owe Brit a room in my house for how many times she’s turned my visions into a reality. She also has a bunch of original pieces available to purchase or tweak to your taste.
Aside from wall art, some of my favorite creative home pieces to shop for are rugs and pillows – so of course, I immediately fell in love with Joanna’s Magnolia Home line available at Pier 1. Just like everything else Jo touches, her latest collaboration is to die for. A lot of the pieces are hand crafted by artisans who have passed down their creativity and skill through generations. I love that Joanna keeps her love for quality even when pairing up with an accessible brick and mortar chain.
Anyone else dreaming of a family vacation to the Silos because Leigha and I are totally ready for one!
