Home Tour: Colour & Pattern in Manhattan

Photography by Jill Slater & Emily Johnston-Anderson via Rue | Interior Design by Sabrina Soto Market Picks: 1 | 2 | 3 | 45 | 6
Sabrina Soto, a TV personality for HGTV in America, recently moved to Manhattan, NYC and so her apartment feels very current with what is currently in many of the big stores on the high street. Steely grey hues have been softened with punches of bold and graphic colour, like the extra large orange tile rug in the living room. Soto's confident use of both colour and pattern works well here as they serve to pull together the main furniture pieces in each room but don't dominate the schemes. This results in a space that has a youthful vibe without being too childish. As well as her use of colour, I'm really impressed with how Sabrina arranges her collections, from vintage fans to glass vases, her vignettes are beautifully executed! What do you like about this Manhattan space?

  21. @Camille - You are so right! I think it's those vintage fans that bring the hint of industrial to the space.

    @Design Blooms - Thanks for stopping by! OK, so you can buy the fan I featured in my market picks above, here:http://www.vintagefans.com/gallery/unrestored_desk_fans/1908ge12.html Otherwise there should be some on eBay and Etsy. You could also try your local flea market, too. Good luck!
