It’s not often a decorating book comes with a great story…this one does.
In the BNOTP Library: The Bee Cottage Story
Author: Frances Schultz
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- I’ve had this book on my wish list ever since I blogged about France Schultz adorable Bee Cottage here: France Schulz Decorated Bee Cottage and Herself Back to Happiness. It had completely sold out and was awaiting new stock. It finally came in and it’s one of those books that you don’t want to put down once you start reading it. Frances is brutally honest in this book about some of the challenges and struggles she’s had in life. This book is really part decorating, part gardening and part memoir. Frances is a survivor and her story is inspiring! She brought both herself and charming Bee Cottage back to life!
- I love how Frances takes us through her thought processes as she turns each room of her home into her dream cottage. She has a great sense of humor and she’s very candid about the ups and downs of restoring/renovating an older home, even sharing about the choices she made that she later regretted. If you’ve ever wished you could be in the pocket of a designer as she restores and renovates an older home from scratch, you’ll definitely get that from The Bee Cottage Story.
- Reading Frances’s story has made me wonder if I could ever take on a little cottage makeover of my own one day. If I ever do and find myself feeling overwhelmed and bogged down, I’ll remember Frances inspiring story and the story of Bee Cottage.
