THE BEE COTTAGE STORY: HOW I MADE A MUDDLE OF THINGS AND DECORATED MY WAY BACK TO HAPPINESS. Frances Schultz. Skyhorse Publishing, New York, 2015. 160 pp. with 182 ills. (175 col.). 21 x 21 cm. ISBN 9781632204950 In English.
Publisher's description: Inspired by Frances Schultz's popular House Beautiful magazine series on the makeover of her East Hampton house, Bee Cottage, what began as a decorating book evolved into a memoir combining the best elements of both: beautiful photos and a compelling personal story. Schultz taps into what she learned during her renovations of Bee Cottage -- determining how each area in the house and garden would be used and furnished -- to unravel the question of how a mature, intelligent, successful woman could have made such a mess of her personal life. As she figures out each room over a period of years, Frances finds a new path in life, also a continual process. She comes to learn that, like decorating a home, our lives must adapt to who we are and what we need at different points along the way. The Bee Cottage Story is part memoir, part home decorating guide. Frances discusses the kinds of useful, commonsense design issues professionals take for granted and the rest of us just may not think of, prompting the reader to examine and discover her own "truth" in decorating -- and in her life.
