Lovable, Livable Home

Young House Love’s new book, Lovable Livable Home came out this week! I was lucky enough to get my copy a little early (I know some people…THE people) and I can’t say enough good things about this book. The Petersiks put into such eloquent, approachable and, naturally, funny words how we can all feel about our homes and the approach to decorating. It can and should be personal, functional and look good–but really, it should just make us happy. I love the message, as it is truly something we have been striving for in our home. I love all the examples and projects across a huge demographic of people and homes.


I love seeing what they’ve done in their own home since we no longer get to peek in every day (hey! I recognize that art!). It’s a thick book with a good mix of page-turning text and the crispest, colorful photos.

You can (and should!) get a copy here if you haven’t already, OR if you are in the Salt Lake area tonight, John and Sherry will be at West Elm at City Creek at 6pm signing books! They’ll have copies there for purchase, too. Chris and I are headed down this afternoon for the signing and hope to see a bunch of you there!

    I can’t wait to see their new book, especially if your art is in it. Mine is on order at the library : (

    What a stunning kitchen. You’ve done a great job. I’m a huge fan of the free-standing ovens. Very classy

    OMG! I had no idea you had an etsy store. Amazingly, your type of artwork is something I’ve been looking for, hopefully I will buy one soon!

    I pre-ordered my book and unfortunately, it’s not supposed to arrive until tomorrow – ack! But I’m definitely going to be there! I’ve been looking forward to it since I found out they were coming right to my city!
