  • Farewell Michelle: Changes at Gardenista
    by Julie Carlson on June 15, 2019 at 5:17 PM

    In 2012, we were lucky enough to have Michelle Slatalla join our team as Gardenista’s founding editor in chief. Many of you probably remember her 10-year run at the New York Times as a columnist for the Style section, probably the most anticipated weekly feature in the paper. So when she agreed to launch our new […]

Runners up: We also like the offerings from Etsy shop and custom sheet company Flaneur. For an inexpensive option, consider this jersey set from . In the market for linens? Consider these […]

  • Lush Luxe: An “Ode to the Pacific Northwest” in a Portland Craftsman
    by Fan Winston on June 14, 2019 at 10:00 AM

    A couple weeks ago, Annie wrote about a loft rehab in Portland, Oregon, by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design that manages to feel really of-the-moment yet not trendy at all. While perusing Helgerson’s site, I came across another inspired project that masters this rather difficult balancing act. As it turns out, it shares the same lead […]

  • Kitchen of the Week: A Scandinavian Design with a Proper British Accent
    by Margot Guralnick on June 13, 2019 at 10:00 AM

    As the keeper of a vintage, ice-box white kitchen, I can’t help but wonder about life with a bit more color—and space, too. I look at classic British design as interpreted by Plain English and deVol and dream of making dinner surrounded by a new paint palette and pantries galore. Sara Aagaard, the owner, with […]

  • Remodeling 101: A Guide to the Only 6 Wood Flooring Styles You Need to Know
    by Barbara Peck on June 13, 2019 at 8:00 AM

    Recently an architect friend of Julie’s was telling her that his dark and dramatic ebonized floors showed every speck of dust and strand of pet hair—not exactly the look he was going for. That had us thinking: Hardwood floors are a big investment, and there are so many places where the style or the finish […]

  • The Last Finished Duplex Spots You Haven’t Seen
    by Sherry Petersik on June 12, 2019 at 10:03 PM

    We’re back with the (finally!) finished photos of the two small-but-mighty bonus sleeping spaces at the duplex! Plus we’ve got pictures and details of two of the hardest working spaces: the linen closet and our locked owner’s closet that guests won’t see – but you can! In short: these little nooks & crannies GO HARD for us. So we’re excited to show you how they turned out. Since we have two larger bedrooms on each side of the duplex with closets and dressers (you can see them here and here), we refer to these as “bonus sleeping nooks” – which are pretty common around Cape Charles, as well as in other beach communities. They pass The post The Last Finished Duplex Spots You Haven’t Seen appeared first on Young House Love. […]

  • #144: When You Don’t Even Recognize Your Own Shopping Habits
    by John Petersik on June 10, 2019 at 5:00 AM

    We recently made two big changes to our shopping habits that are having both positive and negative repercussions. So we’re sharing what we did, why we did it, and how we’re trying to course correct a few pitfalls that popped up. We also got a refreshing reminder that it’s liberating to acknowledge that you don’t have to be good at everything – especially in a social media world where everyone else seems to have it all figured out. Plus, we share a big hiccup that was narrowly avoided at the duplex, an organizational tool that we’ve fallen hard for, and Sherry’s deep feelings for a certain crunchy green snack.

  • The Miracle That Is Sanding & Refinishing A Table
    by John Petersik on June 5, 2019 at 3:53 PM

    This is the story of how not one, but two tables got a complete refresh thanks to a little elbow grease and, well, a lot of sanding. And it’s also a testament to how generally great secondhand finds can be (they literally can look like new – or even better than something new). It’s also a testament to how straightforward it can be to breathe new life into an old piece of furniture. Not all DIY projects are always straightforward, so let’s hear it for that adjective! Since the duplex has two dining spaces (one on each side) we obviously needed two dining tables. For one side we planned to use our old dining table, The post The Miracle That Is Sanding & Refinishing A Table appeared first on Young House Love. […]

  • #143: So We Had Our First Guests At The Duplex…
    by John Petersik on June 3, 2019 at 5:00 AM

    After over a year and a half of renovation, the duplex officially hosted its first overnight guests!!! And it was an exciting, emotional, and eye-opening test of all the work that we’ve put into it. So we’re sharing what we learned and what we’re changing before it plays host again. We’re also talking about how a house that we considered buying last fall as a long-term rental popped back onto our radar with some surprising news. Plus, how we solved some household frustrations for under $25 – and Sherry rants about a certain paper product while John finds unusual joy in another one.

  • How I Style A Bookshelf (Captured On Video In Fast Motion)
    by Sherry Petersik on May 22, 2019 at 2:04 PM

    Ok, so this post was born from a random comment on Instagram a while back where someone asked if I had ever shared a video of myself styling a bookshelf on video so they could see my process and watch me shift things around… and I was like “would it be interesting/helpful if I recorded myself doing that and shared it?” And then so many people commented under that to basically say YES DO THAT. So I did. And here it is. My friend Teresa recently added built-ins to her living room and asked if I’d mind coming over to style them. She knows my soul, and is well aware that’s basically my love language The post How I Style A Bookshelf (Captured On Video In Fast Motion) appeared first on Young House Love. […]

  • Come Virtually Shopping With Us: 5 Body Types, 25 Swimsuit Picks
    by Ryann Miller on June 15, 2019 at 9:00 AM

    Let’s be real: Swimsuit shopping is tough. Not only is it hard because everyone’s body is different, but there are SO many brands out there, and so much to filter through; it can be overwhelming. Also, online shopping for bathing suits is less than ideal because you can’t try anything on. But, we here at...

    by Orlando Soria on June 13, 2019 at 9:00 AM

    A question I’ve been getting quite a bit since my HGTV show Unspouse My House was announced is, “How did this come about?” So I thought I’d take a minute and write down how I got here, how the show came into being, and give you some behind-the-scenes goss on what goes into making a...

    by Ryann Miller on June 12, 2019 at 9:00 AM

    I don’t think there has ever been a time in my life where I thought to myself, “I have enough storage.” Or perhaps more accurately, I have never thought “Everything I own has place.” Ask anyone who knows me well and they will tell you my organization skills are the opposite of Marie Kondo.

    by Arlyn Hernandez on June 11, 2019 at 9:00 AM

    There’s a part of my design process I left out of my MOTO introduction from a few weeks back, and that was all the variations of color combinations I played with (even if just in my head-slash-Instagram bookmarks) for specifically my living room.
