The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith book review, You Make Your Home Beautiful

I was given the opportunity from to review the NESTING Place by Myquillyn Smith.  I really enjoyed reading about all her many homes she lived in and how she was able to make each place hers by adding her special touch.

From the Publisher:
Perfection is overrated. Popular blogger and self-taught decorator, Myquillyn Smith (The Nester), 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.

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

Creating a beautiful home is a journey, not a destination.

This stay-at-home mom in stretchy yoga pants with expired milk in her refrigerator has stumbled upon the secret to decorating for real people, and it has nothing to do with trying to convince others of our perfection. Imperfections put people at ease and free us to take risks and create the home and the life we've always wanted.

Myquillyn's warm and insightful words are paired with her own gorgeous four-color photos and creative, easy ideas for arranging, decorating, and building a home that welcomes everyone. In the book you learn how to create your own style without breaking the bank or stressing over comparisons.

FOCUS on the beauty that’s there, not the imperfect and undone.
