Give your house the Joanna Gaines look with these hacks

When it comes to interior decorating we all want to be Joanna Gaines, minus the lawsuits of course.

The HGTV's Fixer Upper star took to Instagram recently to share design ideas she's eager to try in her farmhouse.

Unlike Joanna's usual style, the designer says she wants to add pops of color. Even though her love for neutrals comes across in most of her work, she says now is the time for something different.

She wants people to have the freedom to mix things that they've been told not to. For example, combining different metals as part of a design is allowed and even encouraged.

Green is always a good color according to Joanna. Her husband Chip calls her the "plant lady" because she'll try to include as much flowers and greenery as she can.

Joanna advises to "enjoy fusions" by blending elements you really like that wouldn't necessarily go together.

All these great homemaker tips came just in time for spring cleaning season!
