Bette Midler, the iconic singer and actress who is often referred to as The Divine Miss M, invited Architectural Digest
into her Manhattan apartment for a tour of its delightfully comfortable spaces and jaw-dropping exterior. Overlooking the Central Park reservoir, the three-story Fifth Avenue penthouse features impeccably landscaped wrap-around terraces and is decorated in a country-cottage-meets-big-city style.

, the home's décor is a harmonious combination of colors, textures, and furniture pieces from various styles and periods -- much to the homeowner's delight. "I don't make a study of anything -- if I fall in love with something, I want it," Miller told the mag. "For me, working in many media, it's hard to just do one thing." We can't tell if the home features a music room, but Bette, if you're reading, we will gladly join you for a cocktail on your terrace and an impromptu performance anytime.
