Architectural Digest brought us up close and personal into Bette Midler’s Manhattan penthouse and lush garden. This light-filled apartment is a perfect balance of neoclassical and vintage styles. Bette’s space has stolen our hearts in the same fashion her performance in Beaches did so many years ago. The urban gardener clearly knows a thing or two about designing a charming gathering space outside of her budding terrace.
If you’re seeking prime entertaining inspiration, this strong-contrast, highly functional design does just that. Aside from the sheer quantity of seating options, this interior incorporates multi-purpose, easy to move drink tables, a game table perfect for hosting, and spring-down cushion reading chairs fit for winding down as the sun does just the same. One of our favorite details in this living room is the effect the natural elements bring to the design. The pink fresh florals pull this room together full circle. Whether you choose real or faux, such subtle pops of color come to life among the dark:light furnishing ratio. The added effect of whimsical art brings a dash of Bette’s humor and personality.
