What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steenburgen and Danson both wanted the guesthouse to have large bookcases, as a celebration of writers and writing. Dussouchaud designed a floor-to-ceiling library to fit within the footprint of the house's original structure. "I love that from the second you walk in the front door, you are walking under bookcases — you are literally walking beneath the written word," Steenburgen says. "Ted and I feel that we owe so much to the writers that we have been blessed to work with; everything begins with them. We are both passionate readers, and that has been a huge part of our journey." In fact, everyone in the family is an active writer. Danson wrote Oceana, a book about ocean conservation. Steenburgen writes music for Universal Music Publishing Group. Their son recently finished his first book, and their daughter writes music.
