Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Furniture designers Gold and Williams's take on home decorating melds contemporary elements with classic design, emphasizing warmth without sacrificing style. The authors fully understand that well-made furniture is an investment, and steer readers toward classic pieces that never look out of place. Using items from their collection, they clearly and succinctly illustrate how to change the look and feel of a room on a budget by rearranging pieces, employing mirrors and slipcovers and balancing a room "in terms of 'layers.' " With an eye toward collecting pieces, as opposed to furnishing a room top-to-bottom, Gold and Williams teach readers how they can evolve their own personal style. What could have come across as a tacky advertisement is handled subtly: they refrain from using product names, tucking a short, tasteful company pitch into the final chapter. They even offer tips for flea market shopping, complete with a list of their favorite haunts. Their eye-catching and user-friendly approach to decorating makes Gold and Williams's book a fine, fresh and practical resource for basic room design.

About the Author

Since 1989, Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams have been on a mission to make people comfortable. The talented duo co-founded the trendsetting home-furnishings company, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, which offers upholstery casegoods, lighting, rugs, and accessories, all designed for relaxed living. You've seen their furnishings in virtually every national home magazine; on the sets of Sex & the City, Friends, and The Apprentice; and in hotels such as W and Ritz-Carlton. Consumers know them from their award-winning national ads, which also feature beloved company mascot and English bulldog Lulu. Their furnishings are available nationwide in licensed Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams stores; chains including Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Bloomingdales, and Williams-Sonoma Home; and top independent specialty retailers. Mitchell and Bob are also known for their dedication to equality in the workplace and society. And they count among their proudest moments opening the first onsite daycare center in the residential furniture industry at their North Carolina factory. The way they see it, it's all part of the comfort.

I was very happy upon receiving this book.

In a way it seemed more like a family photo album, though not in a bad way.

I have to tell you how much I like this book. First of all, I am very busy--single mom, working, blah blah. Definitely too busy to decorate and when I do have the time, I don't have a clue how to go about it. My rooms end up looking like a hodge-podge, and not in the cute, shabby-chic kind of way. I had actually called an honest-to-goodness licensed Interior Decorator out of desperation, even though I couldn't afford it.

And then I saw this book. And I canceled the appointment with the decorator lady.

Why should I pay her what I already paid these guys to do? They told me what I needed to know to make my rooms look better. More cohesive, more stylish, and more comfortable. Which is all I wanted.

The book is easy to read with lots of good pictures and common-sense advice for pulling rooms together. Best of all I could use a lot of what I already had.

Good book, great investment!

This is one of the most fun and interesting decorating books that I've ever read! And I've read a lot of them. The day I received this book, I could not put it down and read it from cover to cover that night. I found both the writing style and content informative and easy to read. Plus, the photos are inspiring. But my favorite, and my daughter's favorite, is the absolutely adorable photos of Lulu the dog. Is she available for adoption? This book will definately get you off the couch and into decorating your home.

Format: Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed leisurely leafing through these pages of interior design counsel. I plan to do it often! Just as the furniture is toned down without losing any "toney" impact, the writing (I notice since I am a writer) gently guides the reader to a variety of ideas. I was not talked down to with over-the-top in-the-know design jargon, nor was I left feeling I'd just read the longest sales pitch this side of QVC! It was as if I had just sat down with my personal interior designer who miraculously somehow knows exactly what I want without a peep from me. A very "comfortable" read while draped over my Morgan leather chair and sipping my double expresso cappuccino. Thank you Ms. Drucker! (oh yea, Gold and Williams too) I feel designer-empowered!!

This a terrific book. It is a must-have for anyone who wants to decorate their home in a comforatable, stylish manner. There are so many beautiful photographs that will inspire the decorator in you. I had white slipcovered furniture and no clue what to do with them. I now have a beautiful living room that is unique and gorgeous. Get this book!

I thought the book was basically an ad for the Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams furniture, so much so that there were photos in the book that I've seen countless times in advertisments. To be fair, I think they make great furniture and their mission in quality and low-toxicty furniture is forward-thinking and eco-conscious. But I was disappointed by the book as it didn't add too much to what I could already gather from looking at Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel catalogs.

I love this book. I was very happy upon receiving this book. There are great many useful ideas for furniture arrangements, color coordination, etc. Very useful for people to use to assist with laying out a room, carrying through decorating ideas, that are simple but very beautiful.

Ordered this book for a couple who purchased their first home. They LOVED it and were inspired to decorate (beyond the in-college look) realizing they didn't need to spend $$$ to set up a fantastic looking room.
