Editorial Reviews

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

Style is personal, I understand that. I recently purchased a copy of Style at Home while visiting Atchison, KS. I was not expecting a store like Nell Hill's in a town of 10,000. It is true that the book does not give the full picture, but it does give some interesting ways to look at the way a home and its furnishings are setup. The book urges the reader to use things in new and interesting ways while not throwing out the history and the style of the things you have. It does not surprise me that some designers may not like this book, it puts some great tools in the hands of the people who would probably be paying them. If you ever get a chance, beat a path to Nell Hill's and check out the hospitality that is evident in the pictures that are displayed in this lovely book. And by the way, I am not old, I am 25! Mary Carol, keep up the good work!

Nell Hill's in Atchison, Kansas is a great store.
But Mary Carol Garrity's book goes a step further and - with beautiful photographs and descriptive text - tells you exactly how you can take the things you already own and love and create a fabulous style.
This is pretty enough for a coffee table book and practical enough to pull out and use. There are no unattainable "Martha Stewart"-like crafts or projects.
Nell Hill's Style at Home is a great self-purchase or gift.

Well, I AM older!! Mary's book is now the NUMBER ONE book in my decorating library! I have amassed quite a collection of books on the subject of decorting, but not a one is as inspiring as this one. I follow Mary's belief of 'there are no rules when decorating, just things you love'. Her rooms are 'not just another pretty face', but rooms you can live in, while also enjoying the 'scenery'.

In preparation for our move into a larger pre-war New York apartment, I have pored through countless decorating books, only to walk away feeling as if I hadn't learned anything I didn't know already. This book, however, is completely different. Every page is full of amazing and completely do-able ideas. The rooms are decorated exactly the way I would have done, had I the imagination and creativity that Nell Hill obviously possesses in such abundance. I fully admit that I plan on adopting many of the decorating ideas in this book into my new home, and most importantly, I finally feel inspired! This is a fantastic book for anyone who loves traditional furnishings and has a desire to surround themselves with beauty every day. And as a final note: In response to those who deemed the book to "old" or not sufficiently urbane- I'm 30 and live in Manhattan, and I, for one, adore this book!

Nell Hill's Style at Home is just as chic, charming, and charismatic as Mary Carol Garrity. Those who have visited her two shops will not be disappointed in this book. It is chock full of beautiful photographs and practical decorating tips which epitomize Nell Hill's and G. Diebolts. I especially enjoyed visiting Mary Carol's home, via her photos. Her decorating style is similar to Charlotte Moss, with lots of charm, color, layering, sophistication, and personality. Wonderful book!!!

I had the pleasure to meet Ms Garrity about three years ago in her wonderful shop. This book is a statement of comfort and beauty as is the shop that inspired it. The rooms portrayed are wonderfully cluttered with collected treasures and beautifull heirlooms. The basic style is "traditional", however Ms Garrity seems to be able to deviate from the normal rules of tradition. She links polished silver trays with rusty urns and garden tools. She allows whimsical touches among her beautiful artwork. It seems that while Ms Garrity has an appreciation for beauty she does away with the snobbery of some of her counterparts creating an overall look that is beautifull without being inaccessable.
