A New Schedule Per Your Request

November 28, 2012

We believe we should all love where we live.

We’re a couple of homebodies, working to uncover the home our home wants to be. And we’re so happy to have you here. 




We're Chris + Julia

Befores, afters, mood boards, plans, failures, wins. We’ve done a lot of projects, and they’re all here. 

We have a long-standing relationship with DIY, and love rolling our sleeves up and making it happen. 

Even when you don’t want to rip down a wall, you can make that space in your home better. Right now.

Hey all!  We have a Greta big-girl room break down ready for you today, BUT after reviewing all of the responses to our recent poll (that you maxed out in a few short hours–you superstars you) we realized that there was an overwhelming number of our readers that requested we post earlier in the day.  So, consider this an early Christmas present (or official announcement) from now on, our posts will go live weekdays at 6am MST so you can enjoy your cup of Chris Loves Julia while sipping on your cup of jo or cocoa.

There are a few more suggestions that you have made that we are anxious to implement, but this is one that thought we could check off right away.  With that, I’ll see you in the morning.  Bright and early.

  1. So sorry, Debbie. Feel free to save us for the afternoon if you’d still like. :) Thanks for reading!

    Awww this makes me sad. I look forward to your entries popping up in my feed in the afternoon. Oh well. Happy to read whenever you post. :-)

  3. Smart! I am usually working on projects until hours before the posts goes up but I believe this will be better for everyone!

    i schedule all my (yes, fashion) posts for 6:30 every morning and it’s AWESOME. i write them in the evenings and they go live while i’m snoozing. or..i write them like a week out and don’t think about blogging for a couple days.

looking for inspiration? 

I recently got an email from someone that asked, “Where do you go for new design inspiration?” She went on to say, “I use Houzz and lots of popular sites, but I feel like I’m stuck in an algorithm and keep seeing the same things.” I know the feeling — it’s so easy to get […]
