Episode 10 - Silos Baking Co.

February 17, 2017

For years I’ve drawn design inspiration from old world European mercantile style bakeries. To me, there is something nostalgic about a 100-year-old bakery. I love that from the cabinetry and white subway tile all the way down to the trim work and dark gray grout, every detail has served as a source of inspiration behind so many kitchens we’ve flipped over the years. It only seemed right that since we were finally opening up our own bakery, that we design it with the same old world European style.

I wanted this whole place to feel like you’d stepped back in time to a little bake shop in France. From the herringbone floors to the custom cabinetry made to look worn, it was all a part of the plan to make this place look and feel like you stepped back in time. 


Objective: Create an open floor plan with plenty of space for bakery guests to line up. Design the main area with the European mercantile feel.


Objective: Keep this space easy for guests to access. Add interesting design details, like wallpaper, to give it a unique flare.


Objective: Design a setting where guests can enjoy their treats with a great view of the Silos and the rest of the Magnolia grounds.

    In some strange way you (Joanna, Chip and the kids) have touched our hearts, it is more of a family show than a Fixer upper although you do an excellent job at that. We will miss seeing you folks turn a disaster into a miracle that anyone would be proud to live in. Please say hi once in a while.
