After moving thirteen times in seventeen years of marriage, Myquillyn Smith has learned a thing or two about creating a beautiful, functional home. She’s a design school dropout who thought her decorating career was over when she realized she hated going into strangers homes and telling them where to put their furniture. An introverted drop-out decorator didn’t make much sense. Until she started a blog.
Myquillyn, The Nester, started Nesting Place five years ago and it’s turned into a business. It’s also turned into her dream job. She and her husband Chad, their three boys, and their home have been featured in some combination in Cottages & Bungalows, Ladies’ Home Journal, Better Homes & Gardens DIY magazine and Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas 2013. Pretty good for a girl whose mantra is It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.
As an introvert, the idea of having dinner with a bunch of famous strangers sounds painful. But, wouldn’t it be fun if Jim Gaffigan, Ellen DeGeneres, Tina Fey and Uncle Si from Duck Dynasty got together for dinner and they recorded it? That? She would watch on TV in the privacy of her own home.
