'Fixer to Fabulous': Who are Dave and Jenny Marrs? Here's their secret for the perfect boho-chic aesthetic look
The first tip is to fill your house with beautiful paintings with vibrant colors, paintings that are influenced by the natural elements of nature
Tired of their tight quarters in New Jersey, best friends Jae and Jasmine were happy to be transferred back to Bentonville, Arkansas, for work. Luckily, Dave and Jenny Marrs had a rental property that was ready to be custom-renovated with a cool Caribbean style for the duo and the home renovators showed us exactly how.
If you are young and creative then you probably incline towards creating a space that has a boho-chic and creative vibe. The word bohemian means a socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts. So the first tip is to fill your house with beautiful paintings with vibrant colors, paintings that are influenced by the natural elements of nature.
Jenny Marrs visited an artist named Kenya’s showroom in Arkansas and picked up a bunch of paintings for the house. Kenya’s paintings are influenced by African culture and African women and their fashion. Having paintings influenced by culture around your house will bring more depth and character to your space.
If you want your home to reflect your personality, you can use a color blocking method of paint on one of the walls, you can either hire an artist to do that like Dave and Jenny did or do it yourself. Go shiny velvet curtains instead of boring everyday curtains.
Dave custom made a wooden table with a huge chunk of pink stone at the center of it. Find stone furniture or decorations that you can put in your house for that earthy vibe. Home renovators Jenny and Dave met right after college when they found themselves at the same company but in different branches. Love knows no limits and the two had a long-distance relationship. Jenny is a Florida native and Dave is originally from Colorado.
The Bentonville pair are definitely the stars of ‘Fixer to Fabulous’. They put their handiwork and design skills to good use while renovating historic properties. They also operate a berry farm and event venue. The duo embraces small-town America by renovating classic homes in and around their hometown of Bentonville.
Jenny is the creative influence behind their personalized renovations, specializes in designing spaces that are warm and welcoming for families, while Dave tackles the construction with aplomb, crediting his passion for reviving old homes.
