"Drawing on her years of experience creating beauty in her 13 different homes, Myquillyn will show you how to think differently about the true purpose of your home and simply and creatively tailor it to reflect you and your unique style---without breaking the bank or stressing over comparisons"

Popular blogger and author of Cozy Minimalist Home Myquillyn Smith (The Nester) helps readers find beauty in imperfection and freedom to take risks to create the home - and life - they've always wanted. This beautiful four-color book is full of photos and creative, easy ideas for arranging, decorating, and cultivating a welcoming home.

Myquillyn Smith is all about embracing reality - especially when it comes to decorating a home bursting with boys, pets, and all the unpredictable messes of life. In The Nesting Place, Myquillyn shares the secrets of decorating for real people - and it has nothing to do with creating a flawless look to wow your guests. It has everything to do with embracing the natural imperfection and chaos of daily living.

Drawing on her years of experience creating beauty in her 13 different homes, Myquillyn will show you how to think differently about the true purpose of your home and simply and creatively tailor it to reflect you and your unique style - without breaking the bank or stressing over comparisons. Full of easy tips, simple steps, and practical advice, The Nesting Place will give you the courage to take risks with your home and transform it into a place that's inviting and warm for family and friends.

There is beauty in the lived-in and loved-on and just-about-used-up, Myquillyn says, and welcoming that imperfection wholeheartedly just might be the most freeing thing you'll ever do.

Incredibly freeing! Th...

Incredibly freeing! The subtitle says it all: it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful. I picked up The Nesting Place on a whim at the library while chasing my little boys around the nonfiction stacks. It looked cozy and I didn't have a lot of time to make a protracted selection. I opened it up while dinner was cooking a few days later...and proceeded to finish it that evening. It was a timely message for this frustrated home decorator! Myquillyn Smith gets it. She understands the internal struggles that homemakers experience as we look at the pristine, perfectly staged pictures on Pinterest. Pursuing perfection only has two ways forward: either we keep trying harder or we give up. And giving up (bad as it sounds) is the path to creating a home we truly love-because pursuing perfection is pursuing the wrong thing. Those perfect pictures are not there to be copied (which is impossible), but to inspire us in our own unique decor. She includes many pictures of the flaws in her home and its furnishings... keeping it real. I wouldn't choose all her decor but the philosophy behind it is the real attraction. There's some practical advice to make the most of your space. I appreciate the perspective on embracing "lovely limitations," things that are inconvenient or awkward in our homes that can actually become a springboard for special creativity. She talks about her former weakness of trying to redecorate just with cute tchotchkes, which just leads to clutter that doesn't quite cover up the real (bigger) changes you need to make. She encourages the reader to not be afraid of making nail holes (it sounds easy as she says to fill them with putty, but what about repainting? Or does this only apply to people with white walls?). She's warm and personable; you feel like you'd like to be friends. I also appreciated the references to Myquillyn's faith that are loosely scattered throughout. This isn't a book about spiritual growth or contentment per se and it certainly isn't the focus, but it helped me feel like I had more in common with Myquillyn than just a desire to make my home beautiful. The chapter about the boy her family sponsors through Compassion International and her visit to his home was a nice addition. In short, I loved this book and am so thankful I stumbled across it. Recommended!

Dont expect lots of n...

Don't expect lots of new photos, or material drastically different from what's already on the blog. In fact, I wish some of these publishers who sign design bloggers would give them a real budget along with their book deal: the author clearly has huge talent and she deserves a wider canvas to demonstrate it.Do expect a valuable reminder of being grateful for what you have and ways to get past excuses which may be holding you back, in creating a home which is closer to what you want.
