#32: The Stuff In Our House We Don’t Show You

It’s official: Episode #32 of Young House Love Has A Podcast is officially here, and these are the official show notes. On this week’s episode a listener asked about the strange habits or odd things you might uncover in our house, and...Show More Summary

How We Picked Our Beach House Color

Picking paint isn’t always easy, and boy did we have a hard time deciding on a beach house color. If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you probably saw us share a bunch of photoshopped options a few weeks ago that flashed by, slideshow-style,...Show More Summary

Beach House Style Inspiration

We’re nothing if not house optimists, so even as our our beach house comes apart (literally, we have mold and termite damage and bad wiring and no HVAC and a failing foundation and pretty much all of the other not-ideal things that necessitate...Show More Summary

2016 Rewind: Our Favorite Makeovers & Projects Of The Year

2016 was an interesting year, to say the least. Between starting a podcast, buying a beach house, creating a coloring book, and taking on various projects around here and beyond, well, there were lots of firsts. So we thought we’d end 2016 with a quick recap of the year’s highlights. Show More Summary

Two Ways To Make Ornaments With Kid Art

You know we like to make ornaments (there’s a nice collection of others that we’ve whipped up over the years at the end of this post) so we’re just dropping by to share the ones we made this year. You know, for any other jonesing-to-eat-all-the-cookies-and-make-all-the-ornaments folks out there. Show More Summary

How To Make A Little Christmas Village

You guys know I like ceramic things. And miniature anything is 100% cuter than something that’s normal-sized (little sliders vs cheeseburgers for example). So it was only a matter of time before this happened. Let’s make a little Christmas...Show More Summary

Holiday House Tour 2016

If we’re in the car driving around at night and we see a house or a yard all decorated with Christmas lights, there’s one guarantee, and that is that a tiny 2 year old voice will shout “It’s Christmastime!” from the back seat. Yup, it’s hilarious. Show More Summary

House Stuff That’s Super On Sale Right Now

Ok, so this spur of the moment Friday post is all thanks to a gal named Kari on Instagram who messaged me and said “40% off capiz lamps at West Elm. Just saying’!” And, well, you know the rest. I lost my mind. And I bought a giant gorgeous...Show More Summary

Behind The Scenes: Making A Coloring Book

Our coloring book has been out a couple of months now, and I realized we haven’t really talked about how it got made. I can’t say we ever really thought about how a coloring book is made, so finding ourselves in the middle of doing one was quite the surprise. Show More Summary

Beach House Video Tour & Floor Planning

Thanks so much for all the sweet and excited comments over on IG & FB about our needs-lots-of-love beach house project (for anyone who’s like whaaaa??, here’s that post to get you up to speed). As promised, we’re back with the rundown on the floor plan, and what we’re currently thinking we’re going to do with it. Show More Summary

We Bought A House!

But don’t worry – we’re not moving into this one. As we shared on this week’s podcast, we recently purchased a beach house (!!!). But it’s not the fancy, high roller version that the term “beach house” tends to evoke. Nope, this one’s...Show More Summary

Holiday Gift Guides For Guys, Gals, & Kids

We have a tradition around here when it comes to whipping up some holiday gift guides for the guys, gals, and kids in your life, so here are this year’s favorite finds. We rounded up around 35 items in each category – many of which are under $25 (there are even things under $5!). Show More Summary

New Video House Tour!

Now that our kitchen remodel is wrapped up, it felt like a good time for a (long overdue) video house tour. Our last one was nearly three years ago (you can watch it here) and there really wasn’t much progress to be seen, considering it was shot just seven months after we moved in (you can watch the “before” house tour here).

Five Kitchen Remodel Mistakes That We Made (So You Don’t Have To!)

There are tons of decisions, measurements, plans (and change of plans!) that go into a kitchen remodel. So it’s usually unrealistic to assume that you’ll be able to navigate the entire thing without hitting a few speed bumps or having to course correct along the way (ten points for two driving related metaphors in one sentence!).

Adding Built-In Bookshelves Around Our Living Room Doorway

It’s no secret by now that we love our new kitchen (you can see the full reveal here, and what’s inside our cabinets here). Buuuuuut there’s a feature just beyond the kitchen that competes pretty hard for our affection: the new built-in bookshelves around the doorway to our living room. Show More Summary

Kitchen Remodel Chapter 4: A Video Tour Inside Our Cabinets & Drawers

The kitchen post train is pulling into the station once again, this time with a look behind the scenes doors & drawers to show you what we put where. Where’s the trash? Where are the knives? What about that blender for my morning smoothies? Where’s all the dang food?  Well, all is about to be revealed. Show More Summary

Kitchen Remodel Chapter #3: The Big Reveal

Want a full tour of our newly renovated kitchen in 4,390 words or less? Well settle in and sip some LaCroix, because this is the post for you. Shall we begin with a few before and afters? You probably remember this view from our living room where you couldn’t actually see the kitchen. Show More Summary

Kitchen Remodel Chapter #2: Gutting & Rebuilding

Hopefully, by now you heard that we redid our kitchen. We shared how we landed on a completely new layout last week. But moving things around on paper is one thing, so today we’re taking you through how things happened in real life – including how a certain wall came down to get that open view into our living room. Show More Summary

Kitchen Reno Chapter #1: A Totally New Layout

As many of you have already heard (either on our podcast or via the pic below that we posted on Instagram), we’ve renovated our kitchen in what turned out to be the biggest, most comprehensive renovation project that we’ve ever undertaken. Show More Summary

A Large House Plant That’s Easier Than A Fiddle Leaf Fig

Big leafy house plants. If they’re large and healthy looking they can make the room and we’ve all seen the glossy magazine shots to prove it. They can also ruin your day if you pay a lot for one that later croaks, leaving you feeling...Show More Summary
