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’re celebrating fifty episodes and one year of podcasting (!!!) with a special episode that takes you behind the scenes and unearths some of our weirdest moments, cringiest sound bites, and even an email we got from Beyonce’s dad (for real). We share the stuff that we love about podcasting (sometimes even more than blogging) along with what parts we loathe, and how a pizza got this whole thing off to a rocky start. Plus we introduce you to the crew of people who work on this show behind the scenes. Spoiler alert: they’re all weird.

There’s no denying that we’ve fallen hard for the color pink over the last few years, and we’re certainly not alone (Millennial Pink, anyone?). So today we're talking about the color trend that’s seemingly everywhere, how it relates to our beach house, and the pitfalls of being swayed by style trends. We also share the dramatic conclusion to our most hated DIY undertaking EVER (yes, I sound like that guy who hosts The Bachelor, but it's an adequate description), and we explore what features in your kitchen can turn buyers off. Plus, we share some travel tips for making quick trips easier, and we learn about a new source for dressing super tall windows where you can literally buy curtains by the pound. Yup, the pound.

Making over our beach house isn’t all rainbows and unicorns and pink siding. So this week we’re diving into a few tasks that have been especially stressful - and we’re sharing one thing we did to calm our nerves (and remind ourselves why we’re doing all of this in the first place). We also get some pro tips from the Clean Mama herself for keeping a house more tidy and organized (including the best tools and tricks that she uses on her own home). Plus we’re sharing the Instagram account that surprised John, the outdoor updates Sherry has been eyeing, and we test our expertise in all things Ikea.

What happens when you aren’t sure if your current house is your long-term house? And if it’s not, how do you know when to stop improving it? We’re tackling those two BIG questions, including how the answers affected our own renovating decisions. Also, pretty soon after we shared our mostly-finished master bedroom on our blog, someone tossed a wrench into the room. A big, beautiful wrench that snowballed into a bunch of other changes - all of which were totally free. Plus, we talk about what’s making our weekday mornings less stressful, and the surprising thing that could lower your home’s property value.

We did it! We finally cut the cable cord (thanks in part to your suggestions) and now we’re spilling how it all went down and, more importantly, how it’ll save us tons of money this year! And yes, Sherry still has her beloved Bravo channel. We also learn some pretty eye-opening secrets about a few big HGTV stars and even get to talk to two new ones - from right here in Richmond! Plus, we share how we live without ceiling fans and how Sherry’s nerding it up with her new favorite neckwear.
