Did you know Mary Engelbreit wrote a book where she shared her storybook home and gardens? I was late in learning this, her book had already been out a few years. I’ve always liked her whimsical, spirit-lifting art and I enjoyed her magazine when it was available, but I had no idea what to expect when I ordered the book she wrote sharing her own home. After it arrived, I loved it so much I immediately ordered two more of her books.

3 Things I Like About This Book:
- You know how I’m always saying the decor books written about a designer’s own home are always the best? Well, that holds true in spades for this book about artist, Mary Engelbreit’s home. Every page is a delight! When you see the outside of her home, you’re going to melt. It is storybook wonderful and the way Mary has decorated inside is just as enchanting!
- I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered this book. I was a little afraid it would be cutesy overload. It isn’t. Mary’s home is a perfect balance of cozy cottage stirred with a dash of whimsy. We even get a peek into her studio where she makes all the magic happen. And between you and me, I’m pretty sure the red box on the shelf labeled “Tiny Reference Stuff” is where she keeps the fairy dust. Yup, pretty sure!
- The outdoor spaces are magical, especially the gazebo and the playhouse. I absolutely love her garden gates! Just a wonderful, enchanting book from cover to cover.
