Home Sweet Home

Sutton Foster and screenwriter husband Ted Griffin moved into their Manhattan penthouse in 2014 — but when it came time to make their new house into a home, they turned to designer Michael Ostrow of Grace Home Furnishings (who also decorated their L.A. digs), designer-artist Mike Harrison and HomeGoods for some finishing touches.

Living Colorfully

"I consider myself a pretty colorful gal ... but I never in a million years thought I'd have a hot-pink couch," says Foster of the eye-catching staple in the living room, which boasts views of the Hudson River.

Good Reads

Real Simple and Food & Wine are among the Younger star's living room magazine stash. Another favorite? "I always grab my People magazine when I'm at the airport!"

Shelf Life

The living room shelf showcases the Broadway vet's "very eclectic" aesthetic, from vacation snapshots (like one from a recent trip to New Zealand) to custom art of her old dog Linus by artist Peter Clark. "I sent him Playbills [of shows I was in], and then he used maps of where I was born and favorite places that I've traveled: It's like a little time capsule of a certain time of my life," Foster says of the piece.

Meaningful Display


Sitting casually next to tchotchkes and animal figurines: the two Tony awards Foster took home for her turns in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes. The actress says it's "kinda weird" to display the trophies, "but I'm unbelievably proud of them."

Dining in Style

"I hate [the word match]. I like to make things coordinate," says interior designer Harrison. "For example, Sutton had the pink sofa, so we added a rug in the dining room in a similar shade."

Decor with Depth


Opposite their luxe buffet, bar and mirror, hang two of Foster's favorite pieces. The blue bird painting, titled "Helen's Blue Sky Holiday," was created by her artist friend Julian Havard after her mother died. "Whenever I see it, I always think of my mom, hopefully flying away up in heaven and watching over me." The framed print in the corner also has special meaning for her and her husband. "We have our wedding vows that we put on the wall to remind each other every day about what we’ve committed to each other," she says.

Bedroom Blues

Foster and her husband enforce a "no electronics" rule in the master bedroom, which she says "is like a spa. It's the safe space."

"We decided to keep our bedroom in L.A. the same color scheme," says Foster. "It's nice to have a little peace in both places. Then the rest of the house is sort of crazy!"

Office Space (For Now!)

"My husband and I are hoping to start a family, and so until it's officially a baby’s room, we turned it into an office," says Foster of the second bedroom.

Vibrant Vignette


"We wanted it to feel alive as possible," says Foster of the home, adding "the quirkier the better." In the office, that meant a butterfly installation and painting of dog Mabel, paired with occasional accents like a bouquet of flowers.
