If you were a regular watcher of Fixer Upper, you saw a few snippets of Chip and Joanna’s home here and there. You already know it’s beautiful, but just how did Joanna design it? The shiplap queen granted Today her first ever and, as of this writing, only on-camera tour of the couple’s farmhouse.

When speaking with Jenna Bush Hager, Joanna revealed her secrets behind creating a simple, inviting front porch. The design guru believes a house should be welcoming — and that begins at the front elevation. “I think little things like potted plants, sconces, front door mat — little things that just when you walk in just feel intentional,” she explained.

If you’re looking to create a similarly cozy space, Joanna’s got your back. In an interview with Architectural Digest she revealed her tips for improving curb appeal. “Freshening up the landscape, adding new shutters, and wrapping dated columns with redwood or cedar wood,” she advised. “These are all things you can tackle over the weekend and without killing your budget.”
