the comfortable home and a giveaway

0 comments

i finally got a chance to sit down over the weekend and read the new book by mitchell gold and bob williams, the comfortable home: how to invest in your nest and live well for less.  i have to say that it is easy to read and also very easy on the eyes.  beautiful interiors grace the entire book.

mitchell and bob have simplified the process of designing a home and provided a wonderful step-by-step “how to” guide to help all readers create a comfortable, livable home.

they start the book off by explaining easy ways to plan for decorating your space.  they also give tips from measuring to color selection to accessorizing. 

once they’ve gotten you started they take you through room-by-room chapters where they give helpful hints for perfecting each room.  they provide space plan examples for the different rooms and also provide suggested pairings to help you create a particular overall look.

although each chapter discusses a different room there are many tips that can be used in any room of your house. 

my favorite parts of the book are the “homes we love” sections spread throughout the book.  they highlight different homes and define the styles of each home as well as feature numerous pictures.  the modern cottage home is by far my fave.

  the revitalized ranch comes in at a close second.

 

the comfortable home is a great book for someone who needs a little extra help when it comes to designing their home.  it’s also a wonderful book for those who don’t need help but love to look at beautiful homes.
