After reading Myquillyn's first book, The Nesting Place, women everywhere were convinced that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful and they found real contentment in their homes. But how does a content imperfectionist make actual design decisions?

Written for the hands-on woman who'd rather move her own furniture than hire a designer, this is the guidance she needs to finish every room of her house. With people, priorities and purpose in mind, anyone can create a beautiful home that transcends the trends.
A pretty home is nice, but a Cozy Minimalist home goes beyond pretty and sets the stage for connection, relationship, and rest.

Total game changer!
If you have tried to get your house in order by the traditional tried and true (for some people) method of 'decluttering' but then stalled out with the overwhelm of it all...then you need to read this book!
Instead of decluttering, begin the process of quieting...room-by-room. That word whispers peace and calm! Quieting.
Myquillin Smith takes you step-by-step in the cozy minimalist method of making purposeful design decisions for your home...room by room..making room for more style with less stuff.
This is a beautiful book. A book that you will love to have sitting out in a place of prominence. A book that you will want to refer to again and again after you've walked through the process of creating a beautiful, simple, cozy home that serves both you and your family.
I have always wanted my home to be a safe haven for my own family as well as others that we have invited into our home. Whether it is for an evening of fellowship, or an extended stay I want others to experience a sense of contentment and joy when they are visiting our home. This book is a tool to create the nurturing environment that I believe we all long for in our homes. I highly recommend it!

The Cozy Minimalist Home is a wonderful guide to lessening the noise created by the large amounts of stuff we tend to keep in our homes. Author Myquillyn Smith provides steps and strategies for making purposeful decisions in decorating our homes in a way that is cozy and inviting without being overwhelming. For those of us who struggle with design, this book is a wonderful resource. I appreciate that she encourages readers to try to use what they have as opposed to buying different items.
I received this book as we were in the process of redecorating/redesigning two rooms in our house. I followed her suggestions and am very pleased with the results! While not everything resonated with my style, I found her ideas to be easy to follow and effective in creating a cozy environment. I would recommend this to anyone looking to simplify their home.
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher.
