Book Description
Mary Emmerling's approach to American country style has always revealed the heart of a romantic: cozy, inviting interiors brightened with bouquets of vintage florals; all-white bedrooms and pampering baths; the sensual glow of candlelight and the fragrance of Casablanca lilies. Mary's is not a clichéd, conventional take on romance, but a clean, updated take that's inviting to men as well as women, modernists as well as sentimentalists. In Mary Emmerling's Romantic Country, she shares her secrets for creating romance where you find it and bringing touches of charm to any setting.

Emmerling's specialty is a quintessential American country look: light fabrics, Western knickknacks, Navajo rugs, sunflowers, seashells, and gingham. The great thing about Emmerling's style is that it's flexible--when summer comes, you change the damask drapes to canvas tab curtains, put out some new pillows with mattress-ticking stripes, and--voilà!--you've got the beach cottage look. Every possession becomes decorating fodder: you can use nice, old chairs as end tables, house your videos and CDs in wicker baskets, or keep your spices in a test-tube rack. The division of the book into decorating periods of 5, 15, and 30 minutes (as well as "1 Hour to an Afternoon") is a bit odd and ...

Book Review
Have you ever visited a friend's home and found yourself saying "what a great idea" when you saw how they displayed a quilt collection or had seen how they had painted an old piece of furniture? That is exactly what you will find yourself doing a hundred times over when you open this book. This will be the place I go for a new design, decor or craft ideas. The best part is Mary will probably not be stopping by your house and noticing you copied her ideas.
