It’s been quite a year for Joanna Gaines, who along with husband Chip Gaines, makes up half of the dynamic design duo behind Fixer Upper and the Magnolia Home brand. For a quick recap, Joanna wrapped up the final season of Fixer Upper, penned two books (Homebody, which launches November 4, and the Magnolia Table cookbook), and opened a restaurant, Magnolia Table, in her hometown of Waco, Texas. She also did a Hearth & Hand collection with Target in addition to her line of home decor goods sold through Magnolia Home and Pier 1. Here, our hardworking 2018 TV Designer Of The Year gives us a sneak peek at some images from Homebody and talks about her design — and life — philosophy.
