Young House Love Has A Podcast

Deep (and not-so-deep) conversations about home improvement, design, and life at home. Tune in to weekly episodes filled with casual decorating advice, DIY stories, and a smattering of home related games, along with what’s new around the house and interviews with designers, bloggers, TV personalities, and more. Sherry and John Petersik are the married duo who began chronicling their home improvement adventures in 2007 on the blog Young House Love, which spawned two New York Times best-selling books, as well as product lines sold by Target and Home Depot. And, well, now they have a podcast.

This week we count down our five favorite tricks for adding flow to any space so it feels larger and less cramped. We also divulge a big financial plus for buying a beach house in such bad condition (it's saving us thousands!). Plus we explore what organizational items annoy professional organizers, and what they recommend instead. We also get some great tips from a listener who finally conquered her giant laundry pile. Oh, and John reveals some mildly creepy Facebook stalking that turned him into a self-proclaimed hero.

What’s it really like to downsize? We talk with House*Tweaking blogger Dana Miller about how moving to a smaller home (at a time they’re family was expanding!) helped them achieve their financial and family goals, and why it’s not always as easy as it may seem. Plus, our own pursuit to spend less money on things and more on experiences leads to a very strange morning together. Also, when should you buy vs. rent a new tool and Sherry’s favorite quick trick for dents and scratches in wood furniture.

When a listener asked about the strange habits or odd things you might uncover in our house, we jumped at the chance to pull back the curtain and call each other out: from the unusual supply that John keeps in the office to the confounding items you might find sitting on our couch and in our kitchen drawers. Plus, a local realtor puts the kibosh on Sherry’s fantasy bathroom renovation and John shares a popular home robot that sadly didn’t live up to our expectations.

We didn’t find love in a hopeless place, but we found a beach house color in a surprising one. Yes, several weeks, multiple test swatches, and 1,500 comments later, we’ve finally settled on a color for our beach house’s exterior - and the decision came from one of the most random places! Plus, we talk to blogger, designer, and Domino contributor Jenny Komenda about the challenges of running a design business and what decor trends she’s noticing in the new year. Plus, we’re digging some weird stuff this week. We’ll just leave it at that.

We asked you to call in with your house-related resolutions for 2017, and boy did you guys deliver! In this episode we play some of our favorite listener voicemails and share what home-related changes we’re hoping to implement in the coming year. Plus, we share why we were giving all of the presents under the tree some serious side eye on the night before Christmas, how we found something burning in our son’s bedroom, and we take a look at what trends Pinterest is projecting will be big in 2017.
