Meet Sherry and John Petersik at Books & Books, Coral Gables.
January 9, 7:30 p.m. and January 10, 6:00 p.m.
John and Sherry Petersik, the husband-and-wife duo behind the DIY design blog Young House Love, had done little more than change a lightbulb when they bought their first house – a ranch-style fixer-upper in Richmond, Virginia – in the fall of 2006. Operating with a limited budget, a can-do attitude, and no formal training, John and Sherry began renovating their home and chronicling every step of their adventures (and misadventures) in total house transformation.
Six years later, Young House Love is so popular (1 million unique visitors per month) that Sherry and John have quit their day jobs to blog and dream up ideas full time. Their first book brims with easy, budget-friendly design ideas and projects, both classic and unexpected. None of these projects have previously appeared on the blog.
The Petersiks come to us in person to discuss their new book, jam-packed with décor ideas and design solutions for every room of the home. You won’t want to miss meeting the young couple and listening to their inventive, approachable and effective advice for renters and homeowners alike. Young House Love makes a great gift for anyone in need of a fresh dose of inspiration.
Sherry and John Petersik, the married duo behind the hit home improvement blog, Young House Love, spend their days tackling DIY projects and renovating their second home while keeping their daughter, Clara, and their dog, Burger, out of trouble (and paint). Crowned “the king and queen of D.I.Y.” by Redbook, the Petersiks have been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Redbook, Country Living, Southern Living, Cosmopolitan and Nest. They have appeared on CNN and HGTV. Forbes ranked Young House Love among its 2012 list of “The 100 Best Websites for Women.” The family lives in Richmond, Virginia, and they’ve never met a ceramic animal they didn’t like.
