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.

We had an “a-ha” moment while we were away on spring break, which led to a HUGE whole-house purge (including lots and lots of toys) and a ridiculously surprising reaction from our kids. So this week we talk about what inspired the change, and how it has shaped our outlook moving forward. We also share how we got so chummy with our neighbors - and how you can foster a more social atmosphere with yours. And we learn why paying attention to house staging tips might pay off, even if you have no plans to move. Plus Sherry finds inspiration in the success story of one of her favorite accessory designers and John finds inspiration by gawking at people on the beach. Like a creeper.

This week we’re sounding off on an article that says open floor plans should be a thing of the past. We’ve been known to knock down walls and widen doorways to add a more expansive feeling and better flow in all three of our homes, but there are undeniable reasons why it may NOT always be the right call. So we’re breaking down all the pros and cons of open concept living and pointing out when to avoid the urge to open up a floor plan - plus what to do if you’re struggling with the one you’ve already got. We also share a big curb appeal improvement that we tackled in just one afternoon and Sherry spills her favorite sources for extra long curtains and explains why she loves them so much. One last gripe: what’s the deal with all of those storage units popping up everywhere!?

One of the hardest things to master at home is mixing color and pattern (which can look CRAZY or *yawn* if you go about it without much direction). So we turned to someone who’s great at it for advice: Cassie from Hi Sugarplum. We loved hearing how she balances her bold aesthetic to create a high-impact house, and even how she knows when she has gone too far. Plus, we share how we made good on one of our New Year’s resolutions and how we found ourselves celebrating Sherry’s birthday in a way that super surprised one of us (not so much the other one). We also talk about why your living room might be the reason your house won’t sell.
