The Comfortable Home by Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams (Clarkson Potter Publishers, 2009) looks helpful (combining comfort, beauty, and style). Link: Design Happens » Archive » Book Review: The Comfortable Home (HGTV.com)
Excerpt from review: "One of my favorite sections of the book is the different floor plans for each area of the home: entryway, living room, dining room and bedroom. I know that’s usually the toughest part when I’m decorating, so having six different layouts per room is incredibly helpful."
[I love seeing multiple choices for one room!]
