Not all homes are created equal, nor are all women. Some just have that je ne sais quoi that elevates them to the status of icon, even perfection. With an upcoming Christie’s auction of her personal effects, Betsy Bloomingdale’s home is worth a tour.
I never really thought much about Betsy Bloomingdale. She was the ubiquitous friend of Nancy Reagan in the 80s, whom everyone touted as having such style. But, frankly, I never got it, nor did I care enough to find out. With her recent death, late in 2016, photos and images of her home and lifestyle have circulated. Tom Ford has purchased her stunning, timelessly elegant home. And all her things are being auctioned, starting tomorrow, by Christie’s. Touring her home is like a step back in time as well as a lesson in timeless decorating.
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Take a look at the Christie’s site and see which items you can pick out from these pictures. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading.
