Hi there folks! And welcome back this surprisingly sunny September day for another excellent CoContest feature blogger. Last week we took a peek at the inspiring Paper & Stitch, while this Saturday we’re following up with a brilliant array of DIY and lifestyle ideas from Nesting Place (NP).
Meet the nester
So who exactly is the Nester? Myquillyn resides in the United States and began her blog in November of 2007. With such a unique name, she goes under the moniker of the Nester, and boasts a love affair for houses, decoration and interior design. Deciding to take things to the next level with Nesting Place, Myquillyn created a one-stop-shop for all things domestic. With a motto of “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” she manages to create gorgeously adorned interior spaces that burst with hospitality and charm.
Certainly not your average DIY blog, or even a standard decorating blog, Nesting place changes the way you think about your home, its ambience, aura and style. Living life with a husband and three sons, Nesting Place provides many tips and tricks to reside in a gorgeous home, without the stress of having to keep it perfect.

Great DIY ideas to get you through the autumn season
Although Nesting Place isn’t your standard DIY blog, there are still plenty of projects to keep you busy. Since it’s heading into autumn (or fall in the US), we thought we’d take a peek at a seasonal project that is sure to improve your dwelling’s autumnal aesthetic.

Shopping advice and decor purchasing tips
As well as neat projects to keep you and your family busy over the weekend, Nesting Place also boasts some great advice for those looking to fill their homes with gorgeous odds and ends. Focusing on deals and bargains, the blog is excellent for those on a shoestring. However, the Nester knows when to save money and purchase a pricey item as well, with a mantra of ‘quality over quantity’ seen throughout her designs.

Tour the nest
One thing we particularly love about our feature bloggers, is being able to tour their own abodes. the Nester and her family have lived in four homes, 3 of which were rented, and these are all documented in detail here.
We particularly love the room above, which offers a rustic modern aesthetic and ambience, coupled with warm inviting vibes, while still looking sophisticated and timeless.
