If decor is your porn, this is your blog.
Her house... I can't even bear to scan the photos. It's so embarassing. If someone has the photos to send, I will gladly post. Discuss.
You're back! I'm with you on this one 150%
She has always been cuckoo for coco puffs when it comes to her home. Bizarro-land. I wish I had old images, but I don't. This was way beyond.
Um? When did you come back? I blogged the photos a few weeks ago. Agree - horrible.
Her house was also in People magazine. Yuck.
Love it when you appear in my reader! Always something to look forward to. You are missed.
I believe the style is technically called "I'm not Jewish! Or from Brooklyn! At all!" Regency.
Unlurk to say I'm happy to see you pop up my my Reader!Now I'll sit back and hope that more people who know more than I do discuss!
Did they double stick the dog's paws to the couch like that?
Barbra reigns. To you haters, STFU. You're not worthy or qualified to lick the soles of her Stuart Weitzman pumps. You are all jealous!
someone gave me the book for my birthday. ugggh. omg. omg. it's so horrible. all that victorian crap and faux federal and fake barn. the roses and the gardens are beautiful - that's itthe basement is a mall!! it's hysterical. a disneyland mall with stores and doll stores. it's almost as bad as the book the Jane Seymour put out. is that her name? the actress with the long hair? her house was 10 times worse. does anyone want the book? free!
Just goes to show all you have to do is be a celebrity and you get published whether it's in good or bad taste. All I have to say is the "litte stores" Please!
Yay! You're back!About Babs: I thought the same thing. Didn't we all?There's no accounting for taste. My question is, who is the editor that thought this was a good idea?Maria
You're back! Just in time for the holidays! Even if it's just for today; it's like an early Christmas gift!Hope you are well.
I thought I was the only one who felt this way. As the saying goes, her only taste is in her taste buds!It's great to see you are back posting.
I can't find the pictures. In what vogue is it?
This has been getting a lot of press because of her new movie " Burlesque". Oh wait - that's a different style icon!
You're back ---this is what I was missing,,, I can think of a thousand different ways she could have used her money - the Human Society, for starters, it is --tis the season for giving --- maybe she can donate all that stuff when she re-decorates...joanny
This is getting a lot of press, since her new film came out - "Burlesque". Oh wait - thats' another style icon!
baby, don't assume some poor editor did this *willingly*. times are tough. sometimes you just gotta suck it up. a girl (or a guy) has gotta eat.and yes, i squealed loud enough to set off alarms. rando posts make me so happy. yes and yes.
So excited to see you in my mail box--life has been dull without you!! I saw some other photos and I cannot believe that any self -respecting shelter (or other) magazine would published photos of her home. But I guess bad taste seeks out its partner. She has gone shopping with many dealers that I know--difficult to say the least. But I do like the dog.
I just hope this works........No comment on those pictures.......I just cannot.......Hope this works. I took 4 grandkids to "Magic Mountain" Saturday.......my youngest.......my hero "Tommy" and I rode "devil dive" pretty scary.....but soooo fun. I asked......"How many Granny's do you get a day? " The guy said......."not one in four years!"http://www.homelogic.com/downloads/avseq02.mpgwww.homelogic.comI so hope it works! Crazy Penps if not; try my facebook.......Penelope Bianchi. I have no idea how any of this works.........none.pps how delighted I was to see your name in my mountain of email............delighted!!!
ps I cancelled my subscription when they had ads for cigarettes......I wish I had waited.........so I could cancel it again........for" public nuisance!!!!"; and "visual pollution!!" can you imagine a poor man has to live in there!?! He must be the kind of a guy......(mercifully there are many.......who just doesn't "see"!!! I hope the dog is colorblind.......and doesn't get hideous. I think she is nice to the dog.What the hell happened to Vogue.......hope Anna is the next editor to be jettisoned upstairs......or somewhere.........good God!
What the heck is STFU???I guarantee you I am not jealous..........nope.Pity. I feel pity. She has a great voice........she just needs a good decorator.or something.Penelope"crazy pen"
What? Early Jewish Renaissance doesn't qualify as a style?
What? You don't appreciate Early Jewish Renaissance????
Click HERE to see Pen flying through the air with her granddaughter. All kinds of great!(Pen: That link was defective.)
I am LMFAO reading these comments.... I thought I was the only one who thought Babs is off her rocker!
You're back! As to Barbra's new book, it is what it is...fascinating. Such a revealing look from someone who's usually so private. We have a page on it in the new issue of HB, and we've created a flip book of images from a story we published on her apartment in 1974. I have to admit that it left me kind of mesmerized.
Welcome back.....it's about time. (didn't believe you would disappear)I had the most interesting experience of being at an auction in LA in 1994/95 of the content of Bab's house in Malibu (she was donating the proceeds to ....? ? the conservancy??). I have to tell you it was the most horrid stuff I have ever seen. Pleather, shiny coffee tables, funky retro 80's stuff that was tacky. It didn't sell well, if at all. I would have been ashamed to put it out into the world. However, you can look at it a couple of ways.....if you have her voice who cares? or when you get so successful you are surrounded by too many yes people and your taste /life/talent/finances/career just shrivels up and dies. Whatever. She is a voice, and talented. And has poor taste. sigh
Her decorator is Vicente Wolf.
Reggie has found her taste to be appallingly bad ever since he had the delicious, wicked pleasure of seeing a spread of her goddawful, ghastly, tacky house in Malibu many years ago in Architectural Digest, the worst celebrity sucking whore of its day, at least under Paige Rense (we shall see under MR). BS's house was full of a mish-mash of Art Nouveau junk and formica-covered deco tables, and was a train wreck. She may be a vocal genius, and I gotta give her that, but she's a tasteless mess and a nut-job if there ever was one.
Why is Reggie Darling now referring to himself in the third person?
it was like i died and went to chotchkie hell.glad you are back. xx-T
I am so glad you are back - hopefully for good.
She looks so sad, like she knows it's awful, and knows it's going to get blasted. She related to Michael Jackson, Elvis, Liberace?
Thank you so much. I was wondering if it was just me. But really, she has a legacy of horrible interior design, basically in all of her homes. I mean, really bad.
i was in the bookstore and saw a copy. nearly gave myself an asthma attack from laughing so hard. sweet baby jesus that is a massive pile of ugly with a dollop of what the hell. should have just set the money on fire. i don't think i've ever used the word "cloying" to describe decor, but there's a first time for everything...
Her taste level is Boca with more money. Tacky
Welcome back. Damn did I miss you. The best holiday gift of all.OK, on to Barbra Joan Streisand. And it was in Bazaar, not Vogue.Have you seen the room that looks as if it was lifted from the White House?Must remind her of banging Clinton back in the day.She has always had tremendous talent and shit taste.Think back to that see-thru Scaasi number at the Oscars back in the 60's.Nuff said.
