Brrrr, it’s cold outside, so why not snuggle up under a blanket with the show notes for Episode #28 of Young House Love Has A Podcast? And one more question: who has 7 kids, a gorgeous Brazilian vacation house, and is on this week’s podcast?! It’s the Novogratz, of course! And on this week’s episode, Robert and Cortney talk to us about creating the perfect guest experience in your home, as well as designing around a big household with a wide range of kids. Plus, we are CRAZY STUMPED about an upcoming paint color choice. Like, 14 test swatches in… and still no decision. Also, we take a stand against an ongoing computer rebellion in our house, we look at our vacuuming shortcomings, and John professes his love of organizing little things.
- We’ll break down all of the beach house colors we’re considering in a future blog post (hopefully with a decision!) but for now, here’s how the front of the house is looking (above). Can you tell we’re all over the place?
- Oh, and here’s the new iMac that John got and the new MacBook Pro Sherry got. So far, we likey.
