Owner of Manhattan Manor Caroline Carty

Caroline Carty

Designer and Owner of Manhattan Manor

A graduate of New York School of Interior Design, Caroline is well known for her innate sense of style and passion for design. Her interiors draw inspiration from her European and New York background. The use of sophisticated textures, clean lines, natural tones, subtle fusion of color and minimalistic, yet elegant and timeless design, define her style and aesthetic.

The Skylight Room is one of Caroline’s many projects that she’s very proud to showcase.   The use of geometric shapes throughout the space leading from the staircase to the exposed beams and wall paneling juxtapose the old and new.  Working alongside the renowned contracting team Duggan & Son they created a beautiful, refined and timeless space.  The relentless attention to detail is seen throughout the space especially in the restoration of the majestic pièce de résistance Belgian fireplace which stands tall among the many featured chandeliers.
