10 Ways to Channel Chip & Joanna Gaines (for $50 or Less)
Texas-based husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines might be best known for their HGTV series, Fixer Upper — where they fix up decrepit old homes, always adding their signature farmhouse style — but among other projects they also own Magnolia Market, a store that sells wares that perfectly embody the couple’s design aesthetic.
While we typically prefer our old, farmhouse-y finds to actually be old (and not faux old), we usually make exceptions for dining and entertaining stuff. And these items from Magnolia Market are all worth a second glance.
- Stoneware Creamer, $10: This enamel-coated creamer is sure to brighten up your breakfasts, and can also double as a gravy boat in a pinch.
- Acacia Wood Plate, $16: Perfect for small bites and appetizers at your next dinner party, this little plate comes complete with a built-in handle for easy serving.
- Metal Berry Basket, $6: Reminiscent of old-school berry baskets you’d find down on the farm, this metal berry basket has a variety of uses — it can help keep small wares in your kitchen cabinet organized, or it can be used in the garden or garage.
- Hanging Planter Orb, from $34: If you want to add some greenery to your kitchen without taking up any of your precious counter space, snatch up this metal hanging planter.
- Metal Kitchen Scale, $42: The epitome of “farmhouse chic,” this kitchen scale (available in black or white) is not only adorable, but it’s also a functioning scale, which will help you measure out recipe ingredients and can serve as a handy storage space for onions, tomatoes, and other non-refrigerated foods.
- Ellie Bowl, $7: Available in a variety of colors and patterns, this ceramic bowl is cute enough to use as a serving bowl at parties (think: dips, pretzels, and the like), but also durable enough to use for everyday dishes, like cereal, salad, and soups.
- Marble & Wood Bowl Set, $30: These mixed materials are a little bit rustic and modern at the same time. Instead of using them for salt and pepper, fill the bowls with condiments and bring them out to the dinner table so guests can help themselves.
- Colette Tea Towel, $15: Making an effort to go a little greener in the kitchen by cutting down on your paper towel usage? Invest in a few of these adorable tea towels, which are crafted from natural and sustainable linen.
- Katie Canister, $24: This apothecary-style jar allows you to ditch ugly packaging and to tell at a glance when your supply is running low. We love it on a kitchen counter, in a pantry, or even in the bathroom filled with cotton balls.
- Embossed Gray Pitcher, $34: The side of this pitcher says “water,” so you probably shouldn’t fill it with, say, iced tea. But we’re guessing you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make good use out of it.
