Written by

Sutton Foster may be best known for her work on Broadway but these days, she’s a city girl! After their wedding in 2014, actress and screenwriter Ted Griffin, 45, purchased their two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in Manhattan’s homey Upper West Side neighborhood. Between the stunning views of the Hudson River, an abundance of natural light, and a functional floor plan, the bones were there: they only needed a hand to make it a home.

The Music Man star, 47, invited archdigest.com to New York’s Historic Greenwood Lake, a property she shares with husband Ted Griffin. The couple teamed up with Foster friend and designer Michael Ostrow of Grace Home Furnishings to renovate the 1885 Dutch Colonial home, which was built by architect Gilded Age Bruce Price.

While the house has a lot of character thanks to its historic architecture, it just needed a little more “warmth”. The couple weren’t afraid to add color and thus felt super cold, super neutral, or agitated. They wanted the house to feel like a sophisticated playroom and an outlet to pour their aesthetics into. Aiming for a modern look at the aesthetic movement, he created a playful design that exemplifies Foster’s affinity for butterflies and floral patterns.

After selecting the ambiance, Harrison and Foster worked together to find new furniture and decor at HomeGoods to complement and harmonize existing core materials: custom art by valiant Bucket Foster and Griffin, Charlie and Linus; memorabilia, including her two Tony Awards, from a life of entertainment; And her precious peeks and griffin love story.

For example, large-scale floral wallpaper is a projector on the ceiling of a light-filled living room, which also contains a special record player, suitable for the Tony Award-winning actress. The couple decorated their home with precious memories and personal items, for example, their wedding vows were hung on the wall to remind each other every day of what they committed to each other.

From the upholstered chairs to the lacquered green walls and installed bookcases, the house feels like a modern fairy tale. Foster shared that the best feature in her home had to be the luxurious bathtub that was installed in the primary bathroom. She describes this as the “dream pool” that was her favorite relaxing spot after returning home from the Broadway shows of The Music Man.
