Are you a Barbra Streisand fan? Did you know she loves decorating and design? Not only does she enjoy home design and decor, she wrote a book sharing all the details of her “Mill House” home.
In the BNOTP Library: My Passion for Design
Author: Barbra Streisand
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Barbra Streisand built a home and doesn’t live in it. I was so surprised when I read that! Her Mill House is an unusual home, very personal and completely fascinating! I totally understood her struggles about wanting every thing to be just right when the home was being built. She’s a perfectionist and freely admits it throughout the book.
- You can tell the book is written by Barbra, it totally has her voice throughout. I love how personal the book feels; it’s a little like reading someone’s blog or diary. It’s as if she is sitting right across from you, having a wonderful chat and sharing all the little details of how she designed her home and how she made various choices, all accompanied by wonderful photographs.
- The gardens surrounding the home are really beautiful! Barbra’s home is filled with lots of gorgeous antiques she’s collected over the year. This is a book to be savored,, so many interesting rooms and so easy to read. It’s filled with wonderful pictures, most taken by Barbra, herself. Whether you’re a fan of Barbra’s music or not, you’ll enjoy this book if you love antiques, lovely rooms and beautiful gardens.
