Booyah: it’s the show notes for Episode #7 of Young House Love Has A Podcast. This week we’re asking if there’s a magical age when your house starts feeling more grown-up by discussing what three well-known design sites think should (and shouldn’t!) be found in your home when you hit the big 3-0. We also share some of our go-to housewarming gifts, spill a few of our favorite tricks for hanging stuff on the wall, and look at what real estate features are mentioned most when it comes to selling homes in different states.
This page has all the links, notes, & photos that go along with what you just heard.
