The Divine Miss M has some divinely elegant digs.
Bette Midler took Architectural Digest inside her penthouse apartment for its June issue, and the photos are as glamorous as the triple threat herself. Overlooking Central Park’s reservoir and featuring an expansive terrace, Midler’s pad has a cozy, crafty feel despite its glamorous location on Fifth Avenue.
“My mother was a really great seamstress, really brilliant,” Midler told the magazine. “Because of her I’ve been crazy about textiles all my life. And my father painted houses for a living. I grew up around people who worked with their hands, so I love how you can see the care and affection that craftsmen pour into their creations.”
Midler lives with husband Martin von Haselberg in the sun-filled triplex, which was originally two units before being remodeled by Los Angeles architect Frederick Fisher and decorated by Fernando Santangelo.
“If you live in the kind of apartment that most people do, you’d want to sit on a park bench, too,” Midler says. “I lived that way for years when I moved to New York.”
