Quickly developing a name for herself in the interior design world, Bethenny Frankel has the Midas touch when it comes to real estate — whether she’s flipping a Hamptons home or gracing the pages of Architectural Digest to show off her Manhattan abode. She loves design and home décor so much, in fact, that she revealed this summer that it’s her “#sidehustle.”
Which is why we were SO excited when the Skinnygirl mogul showed off the interior spaces in her new home in Boston's tony Back Bay nabe.
Posting a series of videos to her Instagram Stories, Bethenny invited her followers to opine on her newest digs. “A view of the place in Boston, what do you guys think?” she said, while panning over a living room, the entryway, and dining nook. “This is the main level, little nook here, what do you think?”
Our initial thoughts: Bethenny’s signature elevated style is alive and well in Beantown! The Real Housewives of New York City alum is mixing brass details and velvet fabrics with oversized statement art and modern light fixtures, and the result is pure Bethenny — sleek and opulent but approachable and comfortable, too. “I’m using jewel tones, but they’re functioning as a neutral,” Bethenny told The Kansas City Star earlier this year. “Navy, greens, a little bit of leopard — but it feels classic.”
Check out all of the décor details below, including Bethenny’s ultra-girly, ultra-glam office that her boyfriend, Paul Bernon, set up for her.
The main floor of Bethenny's Boston home has multiple fireplaces and lots of interesting, oversized pieces of statement art and photography.
“Beautiful glam room that Paul made me in Boston, how pretty is this? And look at that nice window, isn’t it pretty? Love it, yay," Bethenny said during the video tour of her office... which Paul crashed! "No boys allowed," Bethenny jokingly chided him.
Glam indeed! Chock full of girly details like fuzzy pillows, a lucite-and-lacquer desk, and pink velvet ottomans, the space also gets a ton of natural light.
We get why there are no boys allowed in Bethenny's sleek sanctuary!
