“Designed to Last” by Ashley and Dino Petrone achieves bestseller status in release week

Carol Stream, Ill. — (April 18, 2022) — Designed to Last, written by Ashley and Dino Petrone, which released on April 5, 2022, from Tyndale Momentum, quickly skyrocketed to bestseller standing. In its release week, the title debuted at #11 on the Publishers Weekly Bestsellers list in the hardcover nonfiction category.

In their much-anticipated debut book, Instagram sensations (@arrowsandbow) Ashley and Dino Petrone invite readers into their home and relationship, employing their trademark honest and hilarious storytelling, sharing their journey of building an intentional home, growing in faith, and finding joy in the in-between.

The Petrones are the first to say that they don’t have all the answers, but in their book, they share the struggles and successes that come from intentionally staying committed to God and each other. They are convinced that when you build with faith, creativity, and love as the foundation . . . you build something designed to last.

Senior Acquisitions Editor Kara Leonino shared, “Seeing the excitement of readers around Designed to Last is such an encouragement to us because this book is a beautiful example of how trying something new, of blending the creativity of design with spiritual truth told through the lens of a couple who deeply care about helping others in their own journeys, can create a significant impact. Here are just a few of the things readers are saying:

  • ‘Just finished your book. What a beautiful testimony to the goodness of God and His faithfulness in the lives of those He loves.’
  • ‘I love how open and honest you are! . . . Your book has me smiling and definitely helped lift my spirits.’
  • ‘Your book is amazing. It has inspired me to cherish my husband more.’”

Leonino continued, “Ashley and Dino and this book continue to be an incredible picture of what an inspired, fun, loving marriage and home can be.”

Ashley and Dino Petrone have been married since 2006 and make their home in Florida with their four kids: Gabe, Gavin, Quinn, and Foxi. Ashley began her popular Instagram account @arrowsandbow as a way to document her home-design journey. It took off during the seventeen months their family lived in the 180-square-foot trailer she’d transformed from an outdated RV into a bright and welcoming home. Dino is a senior engineer and Ashley is a full-time mom, blogger, and interior designer. Visit them online at
