Greta retired from Hollywood at 35 and lives a private life in New York. She spent most of her retirement in this apartment and still retains her decorating ideas. Here we visit the iconic property.
Perhaps the most striking room is the wood-panelled living area, said to be Greta’s favorite space. In addition to the unique wood walls, the room features a gas fireplace, reading nook and French doors overlooking the water.
Despite its traditional aesthetic, the home displays many modern features – mainly through its modern kitchen concept. The white-tiled space includes a five-stove stove and a custom maple island in the center of the space. This leads to a restaurant that also has a river view.
For Greta Garbo-approved bedroom ideas, the master suite is the best place to start. The room features Greta’s beloved rose-coloured Fortuny silk walls and headboard, while the second bedroom has a pink and green V’Soske rug designed by the actress.
The third bedroom is currently used as a home office – with a private bathroom following the home’s classic design.
In addition to the unit’s silk and wood walls, the wider clock tower construction is equally striking. Other celebrities who have called the unique landmark home include actors Rex Harrison, Ethel Barrymore and members of the billionaire Rothschild and Heinz families.
