Burger, Sherry, Clara and John Petersik are Young House Love.
In 2006, Richmonders Sherry and John Petersik bought their first house and decided to blog about the redo process that they'd undertaken. The result was millions of page views and a new career for the couple. They bought another house that needed renovating, became fulltime bloggers, bona fide Internet celebrities and have written a book named after their blog, Young House Love, scheduled for release on Nov. 5 from Artisan Books. We're also thrilled to have them as speakers at our annual R•Home for the Holidays event on Nov. 8.
The November/December issue of R•Home features an interview with the couple and two DIY tutorials excerpted from their book—how to make napkin pillow covers and how to stencil your walls.
Check out this behind-the-secenes video of our Young House Love photo shoot with the Petersik family, featuring their 2-year-old daughter, Clara.
