Discover how to achieve your dream home on an affordable budget using these inspiring pictures, practical tips, and easy-to-implement tutorials.
Most of us don’t live in a dream home that was custom built to suit our tastes. We have to work with a house that brings its own style, quirks, and personality to the table. But imagine walking into this house, but it’s perfectly designed and decorated with your style in mind—a home that fits you like a well-tailored outfit and yet is as comfy as your favorite pair of pajamas.
What would that home look like exactly? How would it feel to live in a home styled specifically for you?
The truth is, every home should feel like a custom home and
not have to break the bank. In
Feels Like Home, DIY makeover queen Marian Parsons (a.k.a. Miss Mustard Seed) teaches you what she’s learned over the years, sharing budget-friendly practical tips that will inspire you to change your space from “blah” to beautiful, from a builder-grade to character-rich home. Each chapter will guide you through detailed, easy-to-implement tutorials for projects, makeovers, decorating ideas, and tips for handling common challenges. Special note-taking spaces are also included for recording your own design ideas. Room by room, you will be empowered to transform your house into the home of your dreams!
“Whether it’s her interiors or her art, Marian’s work epitomizes timeless style rooted in authenticity, great taste, and casual elegance. Everything is inviting and comfy, while elevated and approachable at the same time.”―
―Brian Patrick Flynn, interior designer HGTV Dream Home
“Marian Parsons, aka Miss Mustard Seed, is that best friend with great taste every homeowner wishes for. Is there nothing this woman can’t do? She paints both furniture and walls; upholsters; sews curtains, bed linens, slipcovers, and even dog beds; and is unafraid to tackle carpentry, tiling, and furniture stripping. In over a decade’s worth of blog entries, she’s provided her fans—including me—with common sense, attainable tips for DIY home design. Lately, we’ve watched as she and her husband transformed a blah, builder-beige, thirteen-year-old tract house into a gracious, warm, and inviting sanctuary for their young sons, a big dog, and two mischievous cats. Now, with Feels Like Home, Marian has gifted us the ultimate design handbook with sound advice, simplified tutorials, and yes, her trademark gorgeous photography. Feels Like Home is the last decorating book this decorator-in-denial will ever need.”―

“Feels Like Home is an authentic story of how, regardless of your circumstances or your location, the very essence of home is in your heart and in the love that you share there.
“For creatives, often part of the dream for a home is to have a special separate place in which to create, to lose oneself, and to make the impossible possible. But as Marian says, it is not what your home gives to you, but what you create with it and in it that is the foundation upon which your life is built. The reality is that most creatives dream of their own sanctuary but, even if that dream is indeed their reality, you will often find them at the kitchen table, the heart of any home, creating and sharing what they love with those they love most.“Like Marian herself, her book is beautiful, hopeful, personal, and inspiring. Regardless of what feels like home to you, this is a resource, a handbook, and an inspirational guide to help you create exactly what feels like your home for you and those that will share it with you.”―
