Homebody by Joanna Gaines
In Homebody, designer Joanna Gaines walks you through how to create a home that reflects the hearts and stories of the people who live there. This beautiful and comprehensive guide helps you to assess your priorities and your likes and dislikes, and then coaches you on how to thoughtfully embrace design to create spaces that you'll never want to leave.
Homebody features stunning photographs of several inspiring homes, including the Gaines' beloved farmhouse, and critical thinking tips that illustrate how to blend the aesthetics you love to develop your own authentic style. With everything from kitchens and living rooms to bedrooms and bathrooms -- in addition to smaller spaces like mudrooms and laundry rooms -- Homebody will instill in you the confidence to create a home that is distinctively yours.
About the Author: Joanna Gaines is both co-owner, co-founder of Magnolia, and was co-star of HGTV’s Fixer Upper with her husband Chip. She appreciates the old ways of living, simple and hard-working with home at the center. Born in Kansas and raised in the Lone Star State, Joanna graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Communications, and was inspired to join the world of design while interning in New York. Off-the-beaten-path boutiques felt like home in the midst of the big city.
In 2003, Joanna decided to open her own shop, bringing her NYC-inspired ideas and eye for design back to her roots—Waco, Texas. This emerging passion complemented Chip’s experience, and together they began remodeling and flipping homes.
Joanna prefers the simple, fresh and timeless, making old things new, and seeing the potential in every project—no matter how hopeless it may seem at first. By preserving and highlighting the character of each home, Joanna keeps things original and one of a kind. Her passion is to create functional spaces that inspire and encourage others to own their space.
Between running Magnolia and her many projects, Joanna enjoys life on the farm, cooking family recipes in her kitchen, and gardening. Above all, she loves being with her five kids.
