The Comfortable Home: How to Invest in Your Nest and Live Well for Less

Sharing decor/design titles
I love most from my collection
is one of my favorite elements of blogging.

Bet you are familiar with the design work of
Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams
who authored
The Comfortable Home
(Clarkson Potter)
and filled it with an impeccable
sense of style plus practical advice
for investing in your nest.

"Proper planning will help turn a house into a sanctuary."
         (Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams)

More than just handsome and smart,
the book shows us how to put together
rooms we can actually LIVE in.

Don't miss the wallcovering featured
beginning on page 63!!!

Is the subtitle
(on the cover of this gem)
as sexy to you as it is for me?????

Peace to you right where you are.

  11. Two of my favorite designers! Did you see the feature of them on CBS Sunday Morning a couple of days ago? It was wonderful! I have to add this book to my list of GOTTA GET! Thanks so much for sharing - just found your blog and love it! Have a great day - Jalon
    P.S. I'm your newest follower

  12. I love them! I actually have a sofa by them in my living room that I've had for at least 10 years and still looks great! I just watched them on CBS Sunday Morning last weekend. It was so interesting. Hope you are well! xo

  13. I have always thought
    "classic" about their
    furniture and design,
    but not in the stuffy kind
    of way. This looks like an
    inspiring book!!

  14. Love this book. It was my first. ;-)

  15. In our home, we are all about living well for less. Don't really have a choice in the matter, since I decided to give up a well-paid corporate job to follow dreams (which pays a few bills but any dreams of owning Manolos are out the door!), but it's a great way to be and I've never been happier. Makes us be creative with everything!

    Hugs hugs,
    Meera xx

  16. Totally agree with our girl Meera up there! ;) Definitely love the motto of living well for less! As lovely as the idea would be to have unlimited funds to throw at my home, I know (aside from being completely unrealistic) that not having lots to throw around makes me much more creative and I think the outcome tends to me much more interesting and less formulaic in the long run.
