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
