About the Author:

Wendy Hyde is passionate about interior design and equally passionate about sharing design inspiration with those around her. In 2008, she started writing her blog, The Shabby Nest, in an effort to connect with like-minded design lovers. In 2011, The Shabby Nest was chosen as the best decorating blog of the year by Country Living Magazine. Since then, Wendy has appeared as a speaker at home and garden shows, on both local and national television shows, in local newspapers, and in national magazines sharing her design ideas and DIY know-how with the public.

Having studied both fashion and interior design, Wendy brings a unique perspective to her work. one of her readers once told Wendy that she had “an eye for pretty.” That phrase resonated with her and has become a guiding principle both on her blog and in her daily design work. In addition to writ- ing her blog, Wendy works as an interior designer for Utah home builder, Ivory Homes. She loves helping her clients create beautiful spaces that they will be happy to call home.

Wendy and her four children live in a cozy home in Utah where they enjoy creative pursuits, laughing with one another, and redecorating . . . a lot.
