Myquillyn Smith’s The Nesting Place, is a book whose back-cover begins with the phrase “Perfection is overrated.” She’s my kind of decorator.
On her blog site called Nesting Place, Myquillyn has been encouraging women to get real with their homes for more than five years. The Nesting Place is a continuation of her efforts to make women everywhere love their imperfect homes. Having lived in more than a dozen homes in the last 18 years with her husband and three boys, Myquillyn has learned to embrace imperfection and create a home that is welcoming and charming, and she does it on a shoestring budget.
The Nesting Place is filled with good ideas, practical advice, and simple wisdom. The illustrations and the quotes she includes in each chapter alone are worth the price of the book.
