Miss Mustard Seed’s Country Cottage

Home to Marian Parsons, entrepreneur and author of Miss Mustard Seed home interiors blog, the dwelling bears her artistic signature in each beautifully decorated room. Her style has evolved through the years, and its present look surprises this former Army brat just a bit. “To me, white walls meant military housing,” Marian says, “or that you were afraid to paint or make design choices.” But in the last few years, she’s come to realize that a snowy backdrop best showcases the carefully curated furnishings that comprise the cozy nest she’s feathered for her family of four.
