My new Friday posts are
Kit and Caboodle.
Basically anything goes,
my posts could be about anything
in the whole kit and caboodle!

I want to share my favorite
decorating book with you!
Susan Sargent's "The Comfort of Color"

Unfortunately, my photos don't give due
justice to the actual book.

I love the juxtaposition of open and airy
with fun and colorful!

There is something to it that I just can't duplicate.
I love color and use it all over the house
but the juxtaposition of light and airy eludes me.

Oh well, it's fun to dream anyway...

Maybe one day I will hit on the exact "look" that I imagine but have never quite achieved.

and it is fun to try...

and look

and dream


and try again.

Happy Friday Ya'll!
Here's to the home of your dreams! 


  1. This looks like a beautiful book and I can imagine how colourful it is! Thanks for letting me know about it.

    Best wishes for a lovely weekend,

  2. I can't wait to see all the fabulous blogs in bloggland on Rave reviews Wednesday!
    I love the book you highlighted. When white is all the rave ( and I really like it... to a point) these rooms full of color are full of life.

  3. Sounds like fun stuff here, Dena! I love that picture with the big dog in it ~ is that a kitchen? Just my style.

  4. What a great book. Thanks for the heads up!

    Just checking in to say I miss you and wondered what you had been up to. We are knee deep in workmen, and I'm headed there now.

    Hope you have a super weekend and hope that your mom is doing better...


    Sheila :-)

  5. Beautiful rooms in this book! I need that to give me some focus and inspiration for redecorating my home. Thank your for your Blogfrog membership subscription! Contact us anytime if you ever have any questions or comments :)

  6. I love the know what I think part of the problem is, those magazine and book rooms don't have real people living in them. No dust, no dog hair, no newspaper next to the chair!
