In the three years since Sherry and John Petersik wrote their bestselling book Young House Love, they have bought a new house and had a new baby, and they have seen their design perspective evolve right along with their family. In their latest book, they’ve set out to prove that just because you have kids or pets doesn’t mean you’re sentenced to floors overrun with toys or furniture covered in plastic. Through never-before-seen makeovers in the Petersiks’ own house, doable DIY projects, and a gallery of other inspiring spaces, Lovable Livable Home shows how beautiful homes can be functional too.

"Find the sweet spot where form, function and meaning align. This philosophy is at the center of the book, which is as much about imbuing the nooks and crannies of your home with personal significance as it is about practicality and aesthetics." --Washington Post "There's no point in showing you stunningly designed spaces if you can't actually do them. These ideas from Sherry and John Petersik . . . are the cure for decor boredom, no handyman required." --Redbook "Family-friendly, do-it-yourself home decorating. . . . Modern and budget-sensitive with comfortable, highly functional rooms that are not overdecorated. The authors hit the mark on relaxed living in theory and execution." --Publishers Weekly "The authors . . . show how to create a comfortable, stylish abode to accommodate families (and their pets) of all sizes, ages, and physical limitations. Over 300 color photographs demonstrate how these DIYers personalize and organize their living, eating, sleeping, washing, entry, working, and play spaces. Included are a number of simple projects."--Library Journal
