An insight into the idiosyncratic flourishes which make a house into a home. Weber takes the reader around the world, looking at how creative individuals' homes reflect their own particular personalities. Here are interiors and exteriors, panoramas and details: Siegfried and Roy's tiger-striped (and tiger-filled) Las Vegas suite; Georgia O'Keefe's ghost ranch in New Mexico; Chris Isaak's childhood home in suburban California; the Duchess of Devonshire's stately home in England; Andrew Wyeth's Maine lighthouse retreat; Diana Vreeland's New York apartment; Cy Twombly's palazzo; and Weber's own Montana ranch, among others. Something of a departure from Weber's usual subject matter, the book has echoes of Horst's Vogue's Book of Houses, Gardens, People (1968).
