Get This Look: Fixer Upper Living Room from The Americana House

We’re back with a new Fixer Upper ‘Get This Look’ post, this time with the modern industrial farmhouse stylings of The Americana House living room (Season 5, Episode 18).

It’s crazy to think that The Americana House was the last house Chip & Jo created as part of their Fixer Upper series. A perfect end note to their many Fixer Upper masterpieces, The Americana House is a prime example of Joanna’s signature, sought-after style. The expert mix of modern, industrial, and farmhouse design elements make this living room feel cozy and comfortable.

5. Select a Large Neutral Rug

Keeping with the room’s neutral color scheme, the space is anchored with a large white and grey rug. The understand graphic print pairs well with the mid-century modern sectional and embellished pillows. Selecting a textured neutral rug adds visual appeal and makes it a focal point in the room without being too loud or flashy.

7. Incorporate a Variety of House Plants

And last but certainly not least, be sure to incorporate a variety of house plants in your Fixer Upper living room. Greenery fosters an appealing, lived-in feeling to the space. Artificial house plants and trees are great options if you don’t have green thumb. Often times faux plants can also be more affordable (especially because they never die!).
