Rank #1: Young House Love

Podcast cover

If you've been at all following home design blogs over the past decade, you'll be familiar with our guests this week, John and Sherry Petersik of Young House Love.  Their blog was one of the first out there to hit the big time, due to a combination of their warm  personalities and their roll-up-your sleeves attitude toward renovation and decorating.  Young House Love became a primary source of inspiration for DIYers who wanted to create a home that was personal and meaningful.   Along with developing products for major national brands and starting a podcast, they have also written two books.  In this episode, we talk about the second one quite a bit.  It's called Lovable, Livable Home, which brings up the opportunity for Sherry and John to tell us what it's like to do so many home projects and still stay happily married.  Tomorrow, October 4th, their third book hits the shelves, but it's not a typical home decor book.  Sherry and John reveal what their newest project is in the episode, so be sure to listen all the way to the end!

Rank #2: Create a Timeless Feeling Home

Podcast cover

This interview with Melinda McCoy of House 214 Design was originally aired in Oct of 2016.  What we so appreciated about Melinda was her understanding that just saying "your home should tell your story," isn't clear enough.  What does telling your story mean and how does that show up in your home and design choices.  Since then, Melinda has created a course and membership site that you should definitely check out.  But her core principles remain the same, making this interview just as helpful today as it was 3 years ago.

Rank #5: Myquillyn Smith

You might know Myquillyn Smith as “The Nester,” or as the author of “The Nesting Place,” her first book, and the name of her popular blog. She has long subscribed to the belief that “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful,” to which I say, Amen! Well, she’s just come out with her second book, “Cozy, Minimalist Home,” in which she promises that you can still have plenty of style, but with less stuff. You may already love how she writes, but once you hear her voice, you’ll instantly feel her warmth and generosity of spirit. We laugh a lot during this interview and I hope you’ll feel like you’re right here in the room with us! Myquillyn shares how she went from being a maximalist to a minimalist, but still kept her home from feeling slick, soul-less and cold. And, best of all, she gives us several of the guidelines she uses when making big decisions such as buying furniture, to small decisions, such as what to put on your mantel. So, after you get on board with the philosophy of embracing imperfection, get ready to make some decisions on how you want your home to serve you.

This week I'm sharing our interview with Maxwell Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy and author of several books on home and design.  We recorded this interview in 2015 when he was on a tour for his most recent book, Apartment Therapy Complete and Happy Home.  Even though this was several years ago, it's still one of our best interviews ever and I think you're going to get a lot out of it.  In this re-release from our archives, Karen Grant is co-hosting with me and she just asked Maxwell to tell us about his overall approach to design and making a home.

Rank #18: Miv Watts

Podcast cover

Are you a maverick when it comes to your home?  Or, to be more clear, does your home represent your soul and the life you’ve lived rather than a particular style category? Interior designer and author Miv Watts explores the homes of people who “decorate” in just this way. In her new book, “The Maverick Soul: Portraits of the Lives and Homes of Eccentric, Eclectic and Free-Spirited Bohemians,” Miv takes us through spaces that deeply reflect the creative lives of their owners. Miv herself started her career as a window dresser for Burberry before launching into set design for films, which took her all over the world. I have learned so much from talking with Miv. She can spark your creative imagination and commitment to being true to yourself like no one else. This episode is truly packed with so much goodness, I can’t wait for you to soak it up with me!
