Mary Engelbreit has delighted readers and decorators for years. Home Sweet Home offers a look at her charming home and helps readers achieve a decorating style uniquely their own.

Mary Englebreit has "visited" readers' homes for years. Home Sweet Home offers readers the chance to peek at the prolific artist's inspiration-her own home in St. Louis, MO.

Home Sweet Home is a beautifully photographed and lovingly narrated tour of the cozy home Mary was meant to live in. The tour offers a rare glimpse at Mary's vibrant kitchen (classic Mary: black and white and red all over) with its warm, rich hardwood floors; and the soft, buttery tones of her living room, which opens suddenly and dramatically into an airy space that almost seems to be outdoors. Countless nooks and crannies are peppered with Mary's many favorite collections-clearly the inspiration for her art.

In addition to the hundreds of sumptuous photographs and plentiful and practical decorating advice, Home Sweet Home explains the method behind Mary's decorating genius, dispels common decorating myths, and gives insight into Mary's fairy-tale world.

Home Sweet Home will inspire even a novice decorator to create a home that is distinctly her own.
