Malibu's Fran Drescher

Drescher, who grew up in Queens, lives a bicoastal life, with a home in New York City as well. But her main residence is an ocean side house on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. When one first enters her home, the most noticeable thing is the beauty of the bright white walls, furniture and accessories.

There is a great deal of artwork, ranging from paintings and sketches to antique miniatures from Europe. Drescher wakes up to an Ed Ruscha painting next to her bed every day depicting a faded sailboat behind the word “Today” written three times. “That’s how I approach life, living for the moment,” she said. “I live for today.”
