EXCLUSIVE: ‘You can’t compete with nature’ – Joanna Gaines reveals her go-to source for design inspiration

Often, when we’re low on design inspiration, our first instinct is to turn to other people’s homes. Whether you prefer browsing Pinterest, flipping through design books, or perusing magazines, chances are you’ve taken a cue or two from beautiful spaces that aren’t your own. And while there’s nothing wrong with taking inspiration from the vast array of lovely homes online and on the glossy pages for your home decor ideas, interior designer and Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines takes a different approach – she steps outside.

‘I always tell my team when I get stuck from an inspiration standpoint, or I can’t figure out what the next step is, I always go outside. I don’t go online, I don’t look at books – I have to step outside. Nature is our greatest teacher with design because it does it so perfectly,’ Joanna tells H&G.
