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!
I’m dying for that chevron wall! Can you tell me more about it? It looks textured. Is it paint? Wallpaper? Other? It’s so dramatic!
Did I miss the link to the podcast? I feel like I have been stalking your blog today but I can’t seem to find it. Any update? (I am happy to wait I am just also in the dark ages so I am afraid I am missing it because I am so untech savvy.). Ps- loved your shout out for YBH. I found them a while ago through you and cant believe they had under 10k?! They are awesome.
Excellent news! I have been binging on “Lore” and finished my last available episode while priming our windows. Thank heavens I have something to listen to now for the second coat!
ahhh totally cool! excited to hear your voices while I sweat :P
Hi! I think I must live in the dark ages. I keep reading or hearing about podcasts, but I have no idea where to go to listen to a podcast. I’m sure I am probably not alone in this, so if you could let people know where to find a listen to the podcast that would be great! Thanks!
Echoing the open concept comment above – I’d love more ideas for decorating these types of spaces. I need each space to be functional for its purpose but they can quickly become crowded-looking with furniture, stuff on the walls, etc.
So darn excited for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YAY! Super excited – so much so that I misread the start date and was scrolling back to find where to listen now – haha.
I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am for this. :D
I am so excited to listen!! I have been looking for a good diy podcast for a long time. Congrats, guys!
Glad I upgraded my phone recently so I have the storage for more podcasts. Looking forward to the first episode!
Paints colors are currently driving me crazy so I would love to hear that discussed. I’m a lover of saturated color and jewel tones so picking a more neutral color for an open floor plan has me floored! I’m leaning toward a warmer neutral but there are so many to choose from.
Oh, yay! I’ve recently gotten into listening to podcasts at work – so excited to have another one to add to the list!
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.
Even when you don’t want to rip down a wall, you can make that space in your home better. Right now.
We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
