HGTV stars Joanna and Chip Gaines of the famed reality TV series Fixer Upper have brought their modern spirit and contemporary architectural design vibe home from Waco, Texas to Santa Barbara.

HOME Santa Barbara features the Gaines’s furniture line Magnolia Home. The husband and wife duo—Joanna designs and Chip builds—opened the store (owned by Jason and Lynsey Trueman, Lisa Knutson and Lisa Rodgers) last spring in downtown Santa Barbara.

HOME Santa Barbara’s big, fun-to-browse open showroom with industrial ceilings showcases each selection in a style setting that includes a large range of textiles, lighting and accessories. Bedroom, living room, kitchen, office, entry hall, kids room and finishing-touch accessories are all part of this kitschy store.

HOME Santa Barbara is family friendly with an aesthetic based on practicality and longevity. Décor from farmhouse to modern in style, from traditional French-inspired to urban, from primitive to boho chic, industrial and architecturally deconstructed looks are all found here. How you put it together is what gives each home its own signature look.

Joanna Gaines, who describes her line of furniture and accessories as “simple, fresh and timeless,” loves the use of industrial pieces that have a retro feel. Her specialty is making old things new again and creating functional, approachable rooms that inspire and encourage others to own their own space.

“Home is the most important place,” according to Joanna. ‘I love helping people create beautiful and meaningful spaces in their homes.”
