“We also love our screened-in back porch. We spend a lot of time out there,” she shared, adding, “The main gathering areas are my favorite.”

DeBoer said that she’s “a living room person,” offering, “I really like to bring cozy vibes. I love a living room that has a lot of windows and space. A fireplace is game-changing.”

Though some people might find it challenging to work and live with their spouse, DeBoer told HGTV that isn’t an issue in her relationship. “It’s been so, so fun to work with Cole and do projects together,” she shared, naming it as one of the best parts of making the new show.

Notably, she gets the final say in disagreements, if there are any. But she said she knows just what to do in case her vibe shifts from good to bad. “If I’m ever having a bad day, I go out and see my goats and my cows, and it instantly makes my mood better,” she shared.

Though their home is still new, DeBoer told HGTV there is one design trend they missed out on when they built it. She said she is “obsessed” with checkerboard tile flooring and wishes they had it somewhere in the house.

As for the most significant challenge they’ve encountered in renovations so far, DeBoer said, “When you have your heart set on changing something, and you get into the process, and it’s not possible — whether it’s wanting to take a wall down and finding electric [wires] in it … anything.”

DeBoer, who has opened up about living with anxiety, explained, “You have to be able to pivot and figure out a new plan, and avoid getting hung up on what’s not working. Don’t dwell on it — think of a new plan,” she explained.

“It’s going to turn out beautiful no matter what,” she concluded. “Being able to let it go and move on is just part of the process.”

New episodes of ‘Down Home Fab’ air on HGTV Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT and are available to stream on Discovery+.
