ABOUT THE BOOK -
A wish-book come true! In Nell Hill's Rooms We Love, decorating maven Mary Carol Garrity coaches readers on how to affordably decorate rooms they will fall in love with. Named "One of America's hottest little retailers" by Fortune magazine, Mary Carol Garrity's mini empire of three decor stores are a Midwest regional phenomenon and have become landmarks in the decorating world.

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.”

Here are some of my favorties -
I love the white walls and the painted ceiling!
 Oh my gosh - aren't these two gorgeous with the arches? The ceiling and that fireplace!
 I love the candles on the table.
And this staircase!!!! I have no words!
And I just love this one for some reason! I think its the lanterns.

I love decorating books, just about anything about houses. I think this one is going down as one of my favorites!
