My Favorite Shows on the Magnolia Network

Hello friends…It’s a beautiful day to have a beautiful day.

“What fire could ever equal the sunshine of a winter’s day?”― Henry David Thoreau

How are you this week?  I’m always sending that no-stress, no-drama positivity vibes your way for a productive week.  Make sure you eat well, stay hydrated, and check in with friends and family during these short days and long nights.

I watch A LOT of home decorating, renovating, and building shows and I love seeing the thought process behind the design and how people are decorating their homes.  I know it may seem a bit daunting to always see folks improving and decorating their houses when I’m only renting but it’s cathartic for me.

Let’s be real …I live in one of the most expensive counties in the DMV (Wash DC, Maryland, and Virginia), and as much as I love it I know this area will not be the place for my forever home.  But owning a home has been a dream of mine for many, many moons.

My Favorites on the Magnolia Network

Home * Work

ABOUT THE SHOW: Candis and Andy Meredith’s biggest renovation project to date is transforming a 20,000-square-foot historic school into their family home — all while juggling projects for clients, rental properties, and life with their blended family of nine.

First Time Fixer

ABOUT THE SHOW:  First-time house renovators take their home renovation dreams into their own hands and experience the risk and reward that comes with trying something new.

I find it interesting that there are so many cheap (dilapidated) old houses out there that I can afford (RIGHT NOW). However, I’m not prepared to move to Kansas, Idaho, Ohio, or Pennslyvania alone with me to take on the renovation of a whole house by myself.

At this point in my life, I know I”m looking for something like a rowhouse, townhouse, or bungalow that I can work with and fix on my own.

In With The Old

ABOUT THE SHOW: Designers, builders, and old-home enthusiasts in small towns and big cities across America reimagine and transform abandoned structures by preserving their historical integrity while giving them a new purpose.

Rental Redo

ABOUT THE SHOW: Designer Keyanna Bowen has a passion for renovating rental properties, showing you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a big impact. She reveals cost-saving tips while updating rentals to help tenants feel more at home.

The Story of Home

ABOUT THE SHOW: Tara and Percy are interior designers with a passion for old homes. After years of designing for others, now they’re taking on a live-in renovation for their own farmhouse in upstate New York.

I’ve finished The Story of Home as I believe it’s a limited series and I’m not sure if it’s slated for a Season 2.  Everything else, I’m still making my way through.  Since the Magnolia Network is part of Xfinity I can watch these shows on demand, although I was given a year subscription 2 years ago so I still have my account info on file.
