This review is from: My Passion for Design (Hardcover)
I saw the book differently. What a story of a fatherless child living in a home that could not afford to buy her a bed, and growing up to build, out of her own interests and imagination, a spectacular house. I didn't look at it as what I like, what I would choose, but as a fascinatiing story of a journey. When you do not grow up among antiques and such, it takes time to develop the eye. Not to criticize Barbra's eye, but just to accomodate the ties between taste and experience. Be that as it may, I love and adore the landscaping. I have only a small garden, but watch me next summer. Roses and stone steps it will be.
I think the book title tells the story. She has a passion for design. That includes the design of her life, her career and her home. Simply to have done it is enough. Well done, Barbra. You have walked a long road, holding to your own passions. I hope you enjoy every minute in this new home.
