Blog Spotlight :: Young House Love

I recently began subscribing to HGTV magazine and love it! As a magazine hoarder/junkie of way too many subscriptions every month, HGTV mag is quickly becoming a favorite. The last two issues have been packed with quality DIY ideas (not cheesy ones), inspiring interiors & home tours, decorating tips, and much more. The July/August 2013 issue featured the couple who writes the super popular blog, Young House Love (am I the only person on the planet who's never visited their blog?...they get 100,000 visitors daily!). Sherry and John Petersik are a cute young couple with a 3 year old daughter who have turned their blog into a full time career. They've featured hundreds of their own DIY projects, along with decorating advice, DIY videos, and more. I can't get enough of looking at before and after photos of DIY projects - it always amazes me at how much you can transform something with paint alone - and their blog is filled with awesome transformations, which they've all completed around their own home. If you're looking for an inspiring new blog to read, then you must check out Young House Love immediately! Enjoy and feel free to leave a comment on any other blog(s) you're obsessed with lately.

  1. All of those photos are gorgeous. I am in love with all the bright pops of color! Giving me some good ideas for our new place :)



  2. John and Sherry are the king and queen of DIY! Check out their book, it's filled with tons of great ideas!

    1. I'm totally going to have to check out their book! thanks for the heads-up.

  3. What fun ideas! Just bought an old house and I can't WAIT to redo it!

  4. I also love the Hunted Interior and Cape27

  5. I actually came across your website from YHL's book.. You're listed in the back of the book under 'home blogs we love'!!! Obviously I'm a new reader here but loving everything so far

  6. Ohh, I'm so happy for you to have discovered the fabulous Petersik Family! Yes, they're book is definitely worth buying to see additional details about all their labors of love! :) I love their style, taste and splashes of color...not to mention it's all DIY! (They're also fun to follow on Instagram).
    My first 'blog-relationship' was Centsational Girl! I stumbled across her site about 3-4 years ago, and thus began my blogging obsessions :) Coming in second is actually Young House and a close third and recent find...well, yours!
    Thanks for your inspirations and fabulous-ness!

  7. I am a long-time reader of YHL and a new reader of yours, but I'm glad to have both of you as inspiration! Like the Petersiks, I'm moving into my first home with my new husband and it's all so exciting! I have so many ideas because of you bloggers! :)
