Young House Love Has A Podcast

Deep (and not-so-deep) conversations about home improvement, design, and life at home. Tune in for weekly episodes filled with casual decorating advice, DIY stories, interviews with experts, and a smattering of tips and ideas that can help you simplify, organize, and update your home. 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.

Could you put your wallet on lockdown for 365 days? Sherry shared the story of a woman who did, including why she took on the challenge, the few exceptions she allowed to make it possible, and how it’s inspiring us to adjust our spending... and maybe even try out a ban of our own. Plus, how much should you involve your kids in the design of their rooms? We share some tips and tactics for keeping everyone happy in the process, so the result is a room that they love (and that you also like to be in with them). Plus, the paint colors that will help your home sell for more money (some of them surprised us!) and a DNA test that led to a humbling personal discovery.

    Hi John and Sherry-
    I wanted to mention an item on this episode both relating to the ancestry.com topic. Sherry mentioned that her brother would have the same genetics that she would. This is not exactly accurate. If you had two individuals, for example 100 percent Italian and 100 percent French, they could have multiple children that would have somewhat varied genetic makeup— my understanding is you could have one kid that 60 percent Italian and 40 percent French and then another child with reverse results. I am not a complete expert on this topic but this is partly what makes these DNA results so interesting.

    Happy Birthday, Sherry! Love the show and your topics which always seem to resonate with us—with the exception of the crystals. 🤓
