Overview

In Nell Hill's Rooms We Love, we will see Mary Carol apply her Nell Hill’s principles of design to new challenges. Even though design styles and trends have changed significantly since Nell Hill's Style at Home, Mary Carol’s first book ten years ago, the rules that guide her approach to decorating have not. In this book, we will rediscover those principles at work in four very different houses, in addition to her own home.  In the book, we will visit rooms inspired by the needs of each homeowner and will see how they transformed their rooms using Mary Carol’s inspiration and “tricks of the trade.” We will observe: •  A century-old English Tudor in a city neighborhood, reinvented for empty nesters•  A suburban tear-down that was rebuilt for a growing family•  A home in the country, newly built but with an old soul•  A sweeping country manor with one-of-a kind rooms While traveling through these homes, Mary Carol will construct the process and provide readers with the blueprint she uses for discovering personal styles. We hope you will be inspired by these rooms and will come away with creative energy to make your rooms beautiful, functional, colorful, and comfortable.
Mary Carol Garrity and her staff at Nell Hill’s work with thousands of customers each year to help them bring their homes to life. Mary Carol’s passion is to work with homeowners to make the rooms in their houses beautiful, colorful, functional, and special. In Nell Hill’s Rooms We Love, Mary Carol shares some of her favorite decorating solutions, showing her readers inside the homes of the clients she has worked with to help them bring their dreams to life. In this new book, Mary Carol deconstructs the process that helps her work with the myriad of decorating challenges from her customers. It is a big order to think about redoing a room in a house, committing to a paint color or wallpaper, dozens of yards of fabric, new upholstery, area rugs that you will be living with for a while, and the investment of dollars and time spent on the makeover. Mary Carol demystifies the process by showing us through rooms she loves and calling out details that go into making the room successful. Mary Carol defines success in decorating by working with customers to identify their own personal style. While the stores of Nell Hill’s are packed full of great room settings, tableaus, and both big and little surprises, Mary Carol believes that people have a personal style that is uniquely their own. Her goal is to help you discover your own style by offering some guiding principles for your decisions. 

Mary Carol’s Guiding Principles •  Mary Carol believes that your style comes from mixing old with new, showcasing your keepsake treasures as well as your newly discovered surprises. •  And she believes in comfort—providing spaces where you can sit down with a book and get cozy or where your guests will find a special amenity waiting just for them. •  Mary Carol believes that a beautiful room always offers an unexpected delight. •  She encourages you to bring the outdoors inside, using garden structures year-round in seasonal decorating.

    recommended most highly!

    I am a fan of Mary Carol Garrity. I own two of her books, and I never miss her columns in our local newspaper, The Daily Sun in The Villages, FL. Her pictures are beautigul and inspiring, and her descriptions informative and also inspiring. I wish to see more of her ideas.

    I see fewer decorating books in my local Barnes and Noble, and that does not make me happy.

    Easy on the eye!

    Mary Carol has streamlined her approach to decorating, with less sitting around that needs to be dusted. It's tasteful. I gave this book as a gift to my sister who loves decorating her home. We have made trips to the original Nell Hill's emporiums in Atchison KS. Those locations remain the "best" of her retail stores.
