‘Counting On’: Fans Think Joy-Anna and Austin Need Decorating Tips After Their YouTube Home Tour
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth may have saved a bundle by buying a house from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar for just $10, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be throwing away money on home décor. The young couple, who are expecting another baby in the summer, recently uploaded a home tour on their YouTube channel. While their home is undoubtedly nice, family followers noticed that Joy and Austin could probably use some decorating tips.
Joy-Anna has almost no artwork on her walls
Joy and Austin’s house tour made one thing clear; the family is not into wall décor. The small home, which seems to include three nice-sized bedrooms, has almost no wall art and minimal décor. Sure, the couple may not be one for embellishments, but family followers noted that the home seems to lack personality, altogether.
Joy did, however, point out that her style is a bit more natural and minimalistic than some. She did mention that she enjoys greenery, and several plants are spread out throughout the home. Still, fans felt as though the home tour fell flat, with some questioning why she would film the tour before the house was completely put together. It seems, though, that to Joy and Austin, their home is basically complete.
Gideon’s room also lacked décor
While family followers were mostly OK with the lack of décor in the family’s living room, several people pointed out how sad Gideon’s room looked. For many parents, decorating a child’s room is a fun activity that injects personality into a plain space. That is not the case for Joy and Austin.
The room contained a simple toddler bed and a dresser. A solitary wall decoration is seen hanging, although it’s not a cute, sunny painting. Instead, Joy and Austin decorated the youngster’s room with horns on a plaque, which, some fans pointed out, is more fitting for a hunting lodge than a 2-year-old’s bedroom. Toys were also strewn across the floor with no discernable storage system to contain them.
Austin and Joy don’t plan to live in their home longterm
After spending a year living inside a camper, family followers were happy to see Joy and Austin put down roots in an actual house. Fans shouldn’t get too attached to the home, though. Joy and Austin have no plans on staying there longterm.
Joy noted that the renovations they completed, including a kitchen remodel, were done with resale in mind. The couple, for example, splurged on granite countertops because they increase resale value. Joy claims they plan to stay in the house for about five years before they put it on the market. Considering they paid next to nothing for the home, they’ll turn a tidy profit when it’s all said and done, too. Where they’ll go next, however, remains unknown.
