It's hard to imagine that designer and Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines's house is anything less than perfect. We've seen glimpses of the charming Waco, farmhouse she shares with husband and co-star Chip and their four young children on social media — and while we found the home to be flawless, Joanna sees room for improvement in one major area: practical comfort.
"Now that we're settling into the house, I want things to be comfortable. . . . I'm even thinking about our dining chairs. It's just that, if it's not comfortable, then people don't feel like they can stay forever," Joanna explained when asked during a group interview what design feature she's most excited to work on right now. "Trying to find that balance of a really pretty home that's livable and fun and comfortable, but also it's just practical. I think that's one of the things I love the most is that challenge of kind of both worlds."
While Joanna is refining her design, we're still aspiring to perfect her signature vintage-meets-contemporary farmhouse style. But now we know to work in welcoming, comfy elements as we go.
