We’ve been sitting on this project for so long, it’s exciting to finally announce we’re launching Chris Loves Julia, the podcast! We love listening to podcasts, and felt there was a gap in the DIY/Home Design podcast space that we could fill. The first 3 episodes will be live a week from today, May 9th, and we’ll put out a new one every Monday from then out.
The podcast will be hosted by Preston Pugmire, our favorite friend whom you’ve all come to know from the blog (he helped us with our concrete countertops here, we showed off their kitchen here, their laundry room here, and above we’re sitting in his gorgeous studio!). He’s an avid DIYer, an incredible musician and performer and we’re so ecstatic that he’s taking this next venture by the horns with us.
What can you expect? First, you should know, this will not be re-hashing the blog. Each episode will be 30 minutes of behind the scenes stories chronicling our successful and failed projects, answering reader emails, design and DIY tips. We’ll be calling other bloggers and notable people in the industry for advice and features. We’re even handing out homework that will help you find your own style or nail down the perfect paint color. Overall, it’s going to be fun, informative and entertaining.
Have a question you’d like answered? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. While some questions, we can answer quickly, some we may just make the theme of an entire show. Excited to hear from you!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

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.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
