When Joanna and Chip Gaines announced the birth of their newest addition to the family, son Crew, on June 23, we were excited to see what the little fella looked like.

The key to making the space feel peaceful and for blending the mix of new, vintage and sentimental pieces is keeping a neutral color palette, according to Gaines.
