I have always liked Diane Keaton, as an actress. I also really admire her work on her homes. She has wonderful taste, as I'd expect from such an artist. She has renovated many homes, one of which I had the opportunity to tour (she didn't own that home at the time, but had many years before).
She recently bought a house in the Pacific Palisades that doesn't need much work. Even she deserves a break from remodeling! And the 2009 home is Cape Cod-influenced rather than the older Spanish style that she is known for. She did a great job on her book, “California Romantica: Spanish Colonial and Mission-Style Houses”, which I own and thoroughly enjoy.
She is coming out with a new book, too, which I look forward to reading, "Diane Keaton: House,” a book about buildings repurposed as residences, will be out this fall.
