The Nesting Place: It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful

The Nesting Place: It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful

A decorating book that's much more than a decorating book. In Myquillyn Smith's first book, she walks the reader through all fourteen (!!!) homes she's lived in as an adult, explaining how she learned to create a beautiful home despite the many limitations. Her mantra is "it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful," and she'll fill you with confidence that you, too can create a beautiful, welcoming home that also feels lived-in and loved-on, despite your own lovely limitations. Practical and inspiring.

Cozy Minimalist Home: More Style, Less Stuff

Cozy Minimalist Home: More Style, Less Stuff

My home is an even happier place thanks to Myquillyn's know-how and practical guidance. She taught me that a "cozy minimalist" is someone who knows how to balance things. They appreciate being cozy, layered, and welcoming. They might not be a sold out minimalist, but they like the idea--someone who can get the most amount of style with the least amount of stuff. If you want to make your own home more warm and comforting, I highly recommend it.

Welcome Home: A Cozy Minimalist Guide to Decorating and Hosting All Year Round

Welcome Home: A Cozy Minimalist Guide to Decorating and Hosting All Year Round

Even before I finished Welcome Home, I was putting Myquillyn's principles into action—and enjoying the process. There's no one I trust more for guidance on making my home livable, welcoming, and beautiful. Her new book walks you through the seasons of the year, highlighting simple and gratifying ways to decorate (yay) and host (eventually) in tune with the rhythms of the year. For the fall season, I'm ready to shop my backyard for fall decor, as she suggests, and my kids can't wait to try the stacked apple cider bar she demonstrates how to do for a fall celebration. This would make a lovely gift book. Publication date September 15.
