An Inside Look at the Traditional & Timeless Homes of Carolina Herrera, Bette Midler, Brooke Shields & Nina Garcia

Traditional style is one of the most popular decor aesthetics thanks to its comfortable and classic characteristics, so it’s no surprise that celebs like Bette Midler & Brooke Shields prefer to live in traditionally decorated homes. Check out our favorites:

 

Carolina Herrera

Fashion designer Carolina Herrera has always had a classic sense of style that is all her own. Her Upper East Side town house oozes elegance and warmth. Despite its dramatic flair, the living room’s focus is on symmetry, a staple of traditional homes. “My home is very personal. I love everything that’s in it,” says Herrera (InStyle).

Bette Midler

Bette Midler’s (known to her fans as the “The Divine Miss M”) Manhattan penthouse living room, brimming with artisanal furniture and fabric, is timeless & cozy. “I’ve been crazy about textiles all my life. 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,” says Bette. (Architectural Digest) The neutral color palette, a go-to for traditional decor, with plum accents offers a calming atmosphere for the entertainer and her husband.

Brooke Shields

When Brooke Shields moved into her Greenwich Village townhouse, she enlisted designer David Flint Wood to help her decorate the space. The home varies in style from room to room—the living room has an eclectic look while the tidy blue & white bedroom leans toward traditional. “Clarity was especially attractive to someone like me, who grew up surrounded by clutter,” says Shields (Architectural Digest).

Nina Garcia

Nina Garcia’s Upper East Side home decorated by Carlos Aparicio of Aparicio + Assoc strikes a beautiful balance between traditional & modernist-chic. The Henningsen sofa and André Sornay armchairs are modern while the space’s layout, muted palette & molding detail are on the more traditional side. “I want[ed] things to be serene and unfussy, full of objects I love—but not too many of them,” says Garcia (Architectural Digest).Nina Garcia - Living Room - Traditional Celebrity Homes
