Episode 6 of The Chris Loves Julia Podcast went live Monday morning and it’s my favorite episode yet! A little background about the episodes: we go over to Preston’s studio and talk for almost 2 hours about a topic. It’s completely unscripted besides the reader questions that we usually read ahead of time (send your questions to email@example.com!) and then sometimes we let them dictate what we talk about. Afterward, Preston takes our conversation and edits out all the long pauses and blabbering on to fit into a reasonable listening time–we shoot for 30-45 minutes.
This week, we talked about all about kid rooms, including our own childhood bedrooms, our children’s rooms (some funny backlash and mistakes we’ve made), how we approach young rooms and honestly, I’ve never laughed harder in my life. There were tears. We hope you will subscribe and enjoy listening to it!

One interesting thing about this episode that I enjoyed is Chris, Preston and I don’t all necessarily see eye to eye on themed kid rooms. What’s your take on them?
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
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.
