In The BNOTP Library: The Painted Home by Dena

Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! Recently I shared the book, Essentially Lilly by Lilly Pulitzer. It’s perfect for summer reading with its bright cheerful colors. It reminds me so much of another book I came across in a home decor store. I glanced through it, loved it, then came home and bought it on Amazon where I found it for a lot less.

The Painted Home by Dena Fishbein


3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • We get a tour of Dena’s home and how she’s decorated all the rooms. As always, the books about a designer’s own home are always the best! This book is no exception!
  • Love the bright cheerful decor ideas and designs shared by Dena in this book. If Lilly Pulitzer had been a decorator, this could have been her home. Pictures are wonderful! This book is sunshine and summer, all rolled into one!
  • Love the gardens, garden rooms and party ideas shared toward the back of the book. There’s a large pretty stencil included in the back of the book, too.

  1. Hi Susan,
    Just wanted to let you know that as of last week, I am not receiving my email subscription again. Hope you have a great day.

    • Debbie, thanks so much for letting me know. I just signed up for an email service today. I hope to move all my email subscribers over this week. I’ll announce it on the blog once that takes place. Appreciate so much if you will let me know if the email is coming consistently once the move takes place. I’m hoping to move everyone tomorrow so Tuesday’s post may be the first one that goes out using the new service. Keeping my fingers crossed this fixes things. Thanks again for letting me know. I would have no idea what was going on if it weren’t for dearhearts like you!

    • Debbie, let me know if you received the one I sent out this evening about the book, Sentimental Living on the Porch. I’m trying a new email service and just seeing if it will work better.

    LOVE this decorating book suggestion. Decorating books are the best. I love to lose myself in some one else’s decorating and then come away with ideas for my own home. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love this book!…great style of decorating!

  8. I’ve been ordering books like crazy through inter-library loan. They probably think I’m off my rocker or about to take on a massive renovation! I like to get a feel for books before I buy them so the library works out great.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
