Season 4 Wrap Up

April 26, 2017

As we wrap Season 4 of Fixer Upper, Chip and I want to say thank you for the continued support and encouragement. It was a season filled with laughs, tears, and lots of unique homes. We are also thankful for our clients- they remain the core of why we do what we do. Every home and family has a special story to tell and we love having the opportunity to serve them.

Repurposing a piece from the past is always going to be one of my favorite aspects of design. I love mixing old with new, and that will never change. Here are a few of my favorite antique finds from season 4.


Here are some of my favorite unique features from season 4. From double sided fireplaces to scalloped walls, we had fun adding unexpected character into every home.

We love shiplap, that’s no secret. This season I found myself wondering if we could push the envelope with it, so we added different styles that matched the personalities of our clients. Rather than sticking with the classic horizontal wide plank (which I still love) we also added vertical shiplap, SKINNYlap (a more narrow version), vertical skinnylap, shiplap on the ceiling and even shiplap painted black. Here are some of my favorite uses from this season.


Each client we work with has a different design style, way of living, and unique story. Part of the fun of designing for specific clients is customizing their home to work for their current season of life. Here are a few of my favorite custom projects we worked on this season.

The exterior is our client’s first impression of their new home, and this season we brought you some dramatic and fun reveals. The goal here is always to give the family a home that reflects their personal style. The initial exterior reveal is one of my favorite parts of the show, because the looks on our clients’ faces says it all!

So what’s next? We started filming the construction for Season 5 in December, so we are right in the middle of demo, design, and crazy reveals. We are also filming Fixer Upper: Behind the Design, which will air after each episode in season 5 to give you a little more design perspective. I love this, because we finally get to give y’all a glimpse of what happens beyond the camera!

Remember, you can check out my blog post on each and every house for even more details here. Comment below and let me know which project last season was your favorite! And stay tuned. More to come!

    I have not missed your show since it came on the air. It is so refreshing to see your show as a genuine, family oriented program. Your and Chip's interaction with each other is a nice change from others programs. I am also so happy to hear that you are filming a new season. You two are just so natural with each other. If I could give it more than a 10 rating I would. Thank you, Angelyn Wilkes. Hudson Florida.
