Publisher Comments:

She loves her antiques. He's a modern minimalist. Bringing the best of both worlds together is a labor of love made easier with a little expert guidance. Nest for Two celebrates the shared dwelling with 225 inspiring color photographs showcasing the cozy corners, romantic details, and practical solutions that help couples savor the pleasures of home life together. From the living room to the bedroom, the homes in Nest for Two present hundreds of ingenious ideas for sharing space and uniting two personal styles in ways that are both comfortable for the inhabitants and welcoming to family and friends. From mingling disparate collections of art and ephemera in the living room, to organizing kitchen work areas to make room for two, the advice in Nest for Two spans a variety of sensible topics. The environments are at once down to earth and exceptional, with practical tips ranging from how to share closet space to how to serve the very best breakfasts in bed. A joyful primer for settling into a sublime shared space, Nest for Two is rich with ideas for creating a well-organized, beautiful setting where everyone feels at home.

Review:

"In this touchy-feely decorating guide, lifestyle writer Serrell advises cohabiting couples on the art of merging styles and accoutrements to create a perfectly meshed environment. For example, champagne glasses, she writes, 'are essential' to a celebration for two, pieces of artwork 'need not 'go together'' to coexist in the living room and 'one-of-a-kind items chosen individually by you and your partner' show off the personality of a bedroom and its inhabitants. Serrell stresses that a couple's home should reflect who they are, both separately and as a pair. Tips for sharing the perfect breakfast in bed or lounging together in a flower-filled bathroom may seem unrealistic to couples strapped for time. And many of the decorating hints, such as balancing a 'streamlined sleeper sofa in soft gray' with a 'red leather vintage chair from the 1930s,' may be impractical for couples who are budgeting their cash. But Serrell's advice is warm and Gowdy's photographs are soothing, making this a pleasant design guide and gentle proponent of domestic harmony, both spatial and emotional."
