Mitchell Gold, who is one half of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, will be in Baltimore next week to announce his new book, The Comfortable Home: How to Invest in Your Nest and Live Well for Less (Clarkson Potter/Melcher Media, 2009, $35.00).
This new book is a reflection on the current economic state, where we have less money to spend, but still want a warm, comfortable and beautiful place to live. In the book, Mitchell and Bob suggest that the key to smart investing in your home is planning. In this vein, they introduce readers to their simple yet effective approaches to color, furniture arrangement, and accessorizing, while also providing tips on how to get in touch with what you like and need before making any big decisions. I stopped by The House Downtown, where the book event will be held next week, today at lunch. It’s one of my favourite places to get presents for friends and family, and also to browse. The House Downtown is the only independent retailer in Maryland authorized to carry Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furniture. To celebrate this event and the new book, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams have offered me a signed copy of the new book for one of my readers.
I am going to make this easy for you to enter: Just leave me a comment and tell me your favourite way to have a comfortable home. As usual, the wicked Connor will be the judge and it will be completely subjective. The deadline to enter is Wednesday, March 10, at 6:00 p.m. We will ship the book to the winner, along with something from the Pigtown collection!
