When it comes to home decor, some people lean toward a minimalistic approach saying: “less is more.” This notion is widely popular among social media figures and other influential people. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Priyanka Nick Jones are some of the leading home decor enthusiasts who think that way.
However, when it comes to Sutton Foster, she has a radically different approach to home decor. “More is enough,” the Music Man star believes. She has already got an in-hand experience of decorating homes and knows her way out. The artist has already been in lavish homes in California, Manhattan, and New York.
The New York Home is the “Forever Home” Of Sutton Foster and Her Partner, Ted Giffin
During her interview, Sutton reveals that she and her husband, Ted Giffin, were always looking for a “forever home.” Something where the actress and the songwriter can feel at home and raise kids. “ We were shooting for the movie Younger,” She recalls. ‘During the lunch break, Giffin called and shouted with joy: ‘I think I have found our forever home.’ I was excited too. We walked through the Tuxedo park and saw this Gilded Architecture.”
Furthermore, she explains that the building was decorated by the then popular architect Bruce Price. “As soon as we entered from the front door, I felt that Giffin was right. I also felt that this is our forever home we have been yearning for.” This was the moment when Sutton and Giffin made this Tuxedo building their forever home.
Sutton Gave The Home “A Whole New Look” Through Major Renovations
As soon as the love birds moved in, they realized that the house is “too white” and somewhat archaic. Sutton collaborated with the top-class interior designer Ostrow and asked for an investigation of the newly bought home. “It is too white and it cries for major renovations,” said Ostrow. Having worked with Ostrow before, Foster agreed and kicked off with major renovations.
Along with Ostrow, she got started with making it “look fun, aesthetic, and updated.” They infused the 4,132 square feet property with flowers, colors, and birds as Foster is a keen fan of butterflies and birds. Nonetheless, the bedrooms and main living room are kept simple. So are the florals, wallpapers, and furniture. The living room is luminous and given what Foster calls an “extra touch” since the couple’s daughter Emily and two dogs lie there. “The extra touch of aesthetics is for our daughter, Emily, and the two beautiful dogs,” she asserts.
