Home tour- A bold and colorful Manhattan townhouse!

This colorful Manhattan Upper East Side townhouse is decorated by designer Katie Ridder for a family. A swoon-worthy and inspiring home, I must say! Let's take a tour, shall we?

This gorgeous home just rocks my world! I am especially attracted to the bold use of color and also love how the designer uses a mixture of large and small patterns to create visual interest in each space. Although each room oozes lots of vibrant colors, a variety of patterns along with a few unexpected objects, every element works harmoniously together without feeling overly busy. My lovelies, now that is the work of a very talented designer! Talented designers often use the right amount of each element without any one element overpowering the other to pull a room together while creating a visual impact!

My favorites? The beautiful blue library and the lovely room with the delightful canopy bed. What about you? Do you find anything you like in this tour? 


  1. Love the color!!! So nice to see a house using color. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yes, I agree, the bedroom and library are my favorites!

  3. Yes, LOVE the teal blue library! Amazing how many saturated colors were used, and yet it still feels light. Thanks for sharing!
