In the three years since Sherry and John Petersik wrote their bestselling book Young House Love, they have bought a new house, had a new baby, and developed a fresh new design perspective that reflects their growing family.
Sherry and John Petersik are the married duo who chronicled their home improvement adventures on the hit DIY blog Young House Love, which spawned a New York Times-bestselling book of the same name, as well as product lines sold by Target, Home Depot, and more. They live in Richmond, Virginia, with their two young children and a feisty Chihuahua named Burger.
"Find the sweet spot where form, function and meaning align. This
philosophy is at the center of the book, which is as much about
imbuing the nooks and crannies of your home with personal
significance as it is about practicality and aesthetics."
"There's no point in showing you stunningly designed spaces if you can't actually do them. These ideas from Sherry and John Petersik . . . are the cure for decor boredom, no handyman required."
"Family-friendly, do-it-yourself home decorating. . . . Modern and budget-sensitive with comfortable, highly functional rooms that are not overdecorated. The authors hit the mark on relaxed living in theory and execution."
"The authors . . . show how to create a comfortable, stylish abode to accommodate families (and their pets) of all sizes, ages, and physical limitations. Over 300 color photographs demonstrate how these DIYers personalize and organize their living, eating, sleeping, washing, entry, working, and play spaces. Included are a number of simple projects."
