Behind these two magical emporiums of home furnishings is Mary Carol Garrity, whose loyal customers come from across the country to seek her advice in decorating. Now Mary Carol has created a compilation of her favorite tips, tricks, and techniques in Nell Hill's Style At Home. Within its beautifully illustrated pages, Mary Carol tells readers where she gets her ideas, how to reflect their own style at home, and once they've made their home perfect, how to take it apart and do it again an even better way.

Learn how to create collections, group and regroup favorite accessories, and mix and match styles and sets of china fearlessly. Learn how to create still lifes with tableaux of your favorite things, corral them on trays, fence them in with stacks of books, and feature odd pieces of glass -- decanter stoppers, old bottles, vases without flowers -- as art. Learn how to personalize your rooms in unexpected ways: Recruit a platter as a kitchen sink backsplash or a cake stand as a soap dish.

About the Author:

Mary Carol Garrity, heralded by Forbes magazine as "one of the hottest little retailers", is the dynamic proprietor of Nell Hill's, with locations in Atchison, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri. As one of today's top lifestyle resources---with her own paint and home accessory lines---Mary Carol is always on hand to personally answer customers' questions and offer real-life decorating solutions. She lives in Atchison, Kansas, with her husband, Dan.

From Booklist:

A fabulous home furnishings store in Atchison, Kansas? And one where 95 percent of its customers drive more than 50 miles? Stranger things have happened--but Garrity's store, named after her maternal grandmother, is all of that and more. Each of her five major tenets--layer, tell a story through displays, update with fabric, anything can be a wall, and home-ize your house--is explained well (with the help of coauthor Caldwell) through color photographs and a bit of text. In conclusion, her portfolio expounds on her principles, such as injecting a sense of humor in a formal dining room, and arranges them into four lists: 7 rules to break, 5 quick changes to a room, 12 accessories one couldn't live without, and 8 final steps to luxury living. For sure, many of her elements are now common in many urban decorating haunts, but doesn't the heart of the Midwest deserve its own brand of design? Barbara Jacobs
