Overview

Mary Carol Garrity is the kind of woman who can mix cinnamon sticks and pinecones with crystal glassware and then convince shoppers the look is seamless and elegant. Her signature layered style is designed to make people surround themselves with beautiful, affordable quality." --Midwest Living

Home decorating guru Mary Carol Garrity compares her techniques for transforming her own 130-year-old Greek revival fixer-upper to that of a bird building its nest-carefully selecting and layering all components twig by twig. In Nell Hill's Feather Your Nest: It's All in the Details each chapter focuses on nest-building basics for different areas of the home, from common spaces like foyers to private spaces like bedrooms. Garrity empowers readers to feather their own nests by developing a sense of personal style, emphasizing minor touches that make a major difference.
