Book Description

Nov. 16 2010
A lavishly illustrated personal tour of the great star's homes and collections.

For nearly five decades Barbra Streisand has been one of the singular figures in American entertainment. From the cabaret to the Broadway stage, from television and film stardom to her acclaimed work as a director, from the recording studio to the concert hall, she has demonstrated that the extraordinary voice that launched her career was only one of her remarkable gifts.

Now, in her first book, Barbra Streisand reveals another aspect of her talent: the taste and style that have inspired her beautiful homes and collections. My Passion for Design focuses on the architecture and construction of her newest homes, the dream refuge that she has longed for since the days when she shared a small Brooklyn apartment with her mother, brother, and grandparents. A culmination and reflection of Streisand's love of American architecture and design between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries, the book contains many of her own photographs of the rooms she has decorated, the furniture and art she has collected, and the ravishing gardens she has planted on her land on the California coast. In addition to glimpses of her homes, Barbra shares memories of her childhood, the development of her sense of style, and what collecting has come to mean to her. My Passion for Design is a rare and intimate private tour into the world of one of our most beloved stars. It will be welcomed by her many fans and all lovers of the great achievements of American design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbra Streisand, My Passion for Design April 20 2011
This is a beautiful book. It even looks great out on my coffee table. Barbra Striesand shares her knowledge and inimate details of how she developed her property and her homes. Every page has gorgeous photographs. You get more of a sense of who she is as a person. She has developed an unpretenious way of life, by creating a peaceful harmonious country retreat that also has class. She is a huge star that realises what is important in life...home and family. I love this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Passion for Design Oct. 3 2011
By Susan
I have the greatest respect for Barbara, her sense of style, attention to detail and determination to achieve the look and beauty she has in her mind. I love the farm and have read it cover to cover a couple of times now. I love that the roses match the rooms and are grown there because she loves their colour and want it in a special part of her home, for her pleasure. I absolutely love the cottage I could live there in a heart beat with the view of the ocean of course. Thank you so much for this beautiful book and the great pleasure it brought to me. The best ever. Susan

I was disappointed in this book. I expected it to be more of a design book not how to design a house. The sellers service was excellent and the price was excellent as well.
