Breaking Design Rules With Purpose: A Conversation with “The Nester” Myquillyn Smith
Apr 29, 2024 Season 32
Zandra Zuraw, Myquillyn Smith

“Break the rules on purpose because we believe the room will look better. Not because we don't know better.” That's the premise of Myquillyn Smith’s new book, “House Rules.” In my conversation with her we pull apart some of these key rules and why they’re so useful, across the board. I love her examples of balancing casual and formal elements, the value of antiques and art, and how decorating with meaningful objects is better than decorating with diamonds. The Slow Style philosophy regarding intentionality, contrast, and patience in home decor comes through loud and clear.  I’m so happy to have Myquillyn back on the show!
