Even the ceiling is decorated

A four-bedroom Carnegie Hill spread that’s done up in bright colors and eye-catching wallpapers is on the market for $2.495 million. The co-op at 12 East 97th Street is a tastefully done maximalist haven, where two bedroom wings are divided by a spacious entertaining space.

The co-op’s eye-catching interiors extend from floor to ceiling—quite literally—with ceilings throughout the house coated in patterned wallpaper. The design element is the most notable in the 37-foot living and dining area off of the entryway, where a geometric metallic wallpaper covers the ceiling throughout the space. The eat-in kitchen adjacent from the entry foyer is surprisingly staid in its design, and comes with plenty of plusses like lots of storage and an attractive built-in banquette.

The co-op’s four bedrooms are divided evenly on either side of the entertaining spaces, and are located off of hallways that both sport funky wallpaper—one in a blue zebra print and the other in a teal damask.

The master bedroom and a secondary bedroom share a full bathroom with a double-sink vanity. Two secondary bedrooms on the far side of the apartment share an additional full bathroom. A powder room off of the living area, and closets galore, finish off the space.

The apartment is on the market with Epo I Manning and Florence Danforth Meyer of Sotheby’s International Realty.

The apartment has a galley-style kitchen with navy cabinets, stone countertops, and a built-in banquette alongside the room’s window.
The master bedroom features white walls, a large bed with white linens and two windows with teal shades.
A secondary corner bedroom with two windows has light blue walls, a teal zebra print area rug, a daybed, and has skate decks featuring Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s soup prints as art.
The powder room has a damask-style wallpaper in blue and white, a white pedestal sink, and a window.
