I love my home. I also love to decorate said home, except I don’t exactly have the kind of budget that allows me to recreate spreads from Martha Stewart (or buy out Anthropologie). So I’m a big fan of any resource for DIY and DIF (do-it-frugally) home decorating advice. Even better? When that blog knows how to mix in a certain amount of hilarity and is run by a super-sweet couple.
Enter Young House Love. John and Sherry started this incredible blog after moving from Manhattan to Richmond, VA. They’d purchased an old but fabulous 54-year-old house, and wanted a place to share their renovation adventures with friends and family. They’re not afraid to show the good, the bad, the ugly, and the genius that they experience with each project. As they accomplished more and more projects, their blog flourished and the posts became more frequent, until it turned into a full-time job for both of them.
I love getting ideas from the simple (and not-so-simple) projects they tackle, as well as learning about organization tricks, sustainable resources, or getting an inside peek at other fun homes during their room makeovers. Sherry recently gave birth to an adorable little girl, and it was a blast watching as they created an adorable and hip (yes, at the same time) nursery for her.
So next time you’re looking for a fun way to decorate that big empty wall, or want some insight on the safest paint for your bedroom–or even just need a few tips on memorable ways to celebrate your anniversary, say hello to Young House Love. They’ll be glad you stopped by!
