Home is where the art is

Most interior decorating books have you put a picture on the wall as the finishing touch. But Natalie Papier, star of Magnolia’s Artfully Designed, wants you to start with the art. To create a room you love, simply begin with something that moves you. 


Art is everywhere, and Natalie shows how to find it—whether it’s a beloved heirloom object, a painting, or textile. With visual guides, insightful ideas, and straight talk, she helps you build from your inspiration to incorporate the textures, patterns, colors, and furnishings that make spaces feel perfect to you.

This revolutionary approach creates endless freedom to decorate with what you already have—liberating you from budget pressure while transforming rooms that speak to—and from—the soul.
