Joanna Gaines from the hit TV show Fixer Upper is really stepping it up and taking over the design world. Her design and decorating talents are clearly taking off, you can see all her creative juices on each episode of the show.





If you’ve been dreaming of making your home look like it was featured on Fixer Upper, but not sure where to start, take a look at some of these ways to make it look like Joanna Gaines decorated your home.

White, White, and more White!

It is pretty clear that Joanna loves using white and features it in almost every episode. Sometime she will change the dark colors to white walls, adding window coverings or white accessories and light rugs. Since we started carrying the Joanna Gaines Magnolia Rug line we have had many interior decorators, designers and specialists leverage her design style to give it that look. We have a few of her collections available in our Portland Showroom.




Hard Surface and Raw Wood

Joanna loves to use raw wood look on so many different things. In each episode you will see that every home has a hard surface and wood look flooring. She tries to tie that together with furniture and shelving. Not everyone is gets lucky to have old hardwood floors to sand down and bring back to life. If you get lucky with that in your original home that is a great way to go. Luckily there are many new trends with hard surface options, including tile. We have a handful of options available in our showroom to help give you this look. Hardwoods, tiles and laminates throughout our showroom giving you options.

Metal Accessories

Joanna uses a lot of metal accessories on the show. Adding some simple items like vases, pots or even chairs is an easy way to get that Fixer Upper look.





Light Color Palettes

Joanna’s designs always look bright and give you that open, and airy feel. She loves to use a lot of light and very neutral colors.

Area rugs are the perfect accessory to complete a room’s décor, breathe new life into a boring space, define a nook, or simply add warmth over a cool hard surface floor. A beautiful area rug is to a room what a tie is to a suit or the perfect pair of shoes to an outfit. The right area rug will define the mood of the room while adding your own personal sense of style. Area rugs are tremendously versatile, yet they are also practical and functional – they offer noise reduction, protection for the floor and prevent slipping.



When choosing an area rug style, you will first want to consider how the space will function: Think about whether the rug will lay in a high traffic, every day gathering place or if it will be in a more formal setting. Also think about the rug’s purpose – will it be the focal point or will it showcase other elements in the room?

The other important item to ponder is your personal design preference for the room. Is it casual or elegant? Whimsical or Natural? Since there are so many designs, colors, shapes and sizes, choosing the right rug can be overwhelming at first. But if you have an idea of the how the space will function and your style– you will be ahead of the game when you start shopping. A sales consultant will happily walk you through the selection process as you share with them where you are placing the rug, how it will function, and your own personal design preferences. The options are limitless with area rugs – but remember they are easy to change out and update.

The right choice will create magic in your room and an inviting space for you and your guests to celebrate the holidays. At Carpet Mill Outlet we stock hundreds of rugs in a range of styles and sizes for you take to home right away – so visit our experts today!

Why go with wool flooring?

Wool has been the standard in floor covering for centuries and represents all the qualities that synthetic fibers try to emulate. When you are ready to make an investment in your home, consider the following:
  • BIODEGRADABLE
    Wool is a biodegradable natural fiber and one of the most environmentally forgiving flooring products.
  • RENEWABLE
    Wool is a renewable product and therefore has less impact on the environment.
  • SUSTAINABLE LIFE CYCLE
    Wool has a longer life cycle than other fibers resulting in a smaller environmental footprint.
  • NON ALLERGENIC
    Wool is a non-allergenic fiber and does not promote the growth of bacteria and dust mites, or give off harmful emissions.
  • STAIN-RESISTANT
    Wool cleans better and won’t soil quickly due to its natural soil resistance, making chemical stain protection treatments unnecessary.
  • AIR PURIFYING
    Wool fibers absorb and neutralize polluting gases such as formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide and nitrous oxides.Aesthetic Reasons for Wool Carpet:
  • STYLE
    From luxurious and elegant too casual and comfy, carpet can give a space an entirely different feel, from tiles to patterns.
  • COMFORT
    In addition to feeling nice to walk, sit and lay on, carpet provides shock absorption thanks to its flexibility and cushioning. Which over a long period of time is good for the body.
  • QUIET
    Sound carries much further when there is no carpet in the space. This is because hard surfaces can't absorb sound the way that soft surfaces - such as carpet- can.

So if you aren’t a fan of HGTV you may have missed one of their hottest shows, Fixer Upper hosted by Chip and Joanna Gaines. The premise of the show which takes place in and around Waco, Texas, is finding the worst house in a neighborhood and restoring it to its former self. Starting with a complete interior and exterior re-model through to the furnished rooms. Chip is the muscle behind the restoration driving the construction while Joanna is the brains behind the design. While they are incredibly likable and charming, after watching a few episodes you are hooked by their creative eyes and design savvy.



Loloi Rugs caught on quick to that savviness as they hired Joanna to create a line of rugs that capture Joanna’s “timeless” style that is “simple and fresh”. Joanna says it best herself, “When people see the line, I think they’ll get an immediate sense of my style. I feel it is important to design pieces I would put in my own home.” That style equates to a range of collections utilizing natural and synthetic fibers, vintage and transitional in a gamut of colors and sizes. At affordable prices these rugs are a must have – and a way to get a little piece of Joanna Gaines’ style without going to Waco.

Rugs are the perfect way to finish a room, change the style, add a pop of color, or even disguise an imperfect floor. Not only do they soften up a room – rugs provide important benefits including slip resistance and sound deadening properties. The challenge is finding the right rug for your room and your style. There are thousands and thousands of rugs to choose from in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colors and style. A simple online search can prove overwhelming and confusing. However, it can be a useful tool to hone in on what you are looking for.
We recommend purchasing your rug in a store. There are many reasons but here are a few:
  1. Design Expertise – if you don’t know what your “style” is or what style type fits your décor, an experienced design consultant can guide you through the selection process. They know design, color and how the rug should fit around your furniture. It is always helpful to bring in a pic or two to show them so they can help you coordinate.
  2. Style and Color – What does the rug really look like? All monitors are different, meaning true color is really hard to see on a screen. When you view the rug in person you can see all of the hues and transitions. The scale of the design or pattern is also much easier to view in person – the pattern may look bolder in real life or less pronounced but at least you will know.
  3. Quality – the old adage “you get what you pay for” is not necessarily true with online rug purchases. When you see a rug in a store, you are able to touch and feel it to assess the quality of the exact rug you are purchasing. You can discuss with your consultant the difference between machine made and hand tied rugs and the value of each. There is nothing like being able to lay a hand on it to know what you are selecting.
  4. Timing – sometimes there is a sense of urgency – you are hosting a party, an old friend is coming to visit or you just want to check it off your to-do list. Whatever the reason, you can take that rug home immediately and try it out in your home, with your light. You don’t have to wait for days to have it delivered.



So go ahead, look online but visit a showroom to make your final rug selection. You won’t regret the experience of purchasing exactly what works best for you and your home.
