ACE Magnolia Home Castle Collection

“I wanted to honor the history of the castle with rich, unique colors that would complement its grand and traditional aesthetic, while still creating a timeless palette for any style of home.”
– Joanna Gaines

The newest Magnolia paint collection is inspired by Joanna and Chip Gaines’s restoration of a castle in Waco, Texas. The remodel was documented as a part of their series, Fixer Upper, with six episodes chronicling their largest project to date. The duo’s renovation routine typically involves catering to clients’ visions. However, they discovered that a different approach would be needed when dealing with the absence of requests in a space full of possibilities.

The Gaines’ solved this with a historian who described the castle’s previous family and the ways in which they utilized its rooms. The stories quickly became the inspiration that they were seeking. Joanna explained that she used paint to develop each room’s personality. This was an unfamiliar approach and she found it called for shades that she would not normally gravitate toward. From this experience the Castle Collection was formed.

The collection comprises ten shades, each carefully chosen to embody the restored castle. Joanna describes the colors as ranging from, “warm neutrals to moody accents.” The shades reflect an emphasis on timelessness over trendiness, as she selected colors that she felt would continue to stand out over the years. Some of the names are derived from the rooms they inspired such as Conservatory and Drawing Room. Others are inspired by her personal life. Rosy Pink honors her grandmother Agnes Rose, while Step Stool Green is aptly named after a green step stool Joanna owns.
