Katie Ridder Style




I've long admired designer Katie Ridder's work. Her rooms are always tasteful yet never boring. There is always a sense of adventure and fun to her rooms, but there is also an intellectual streak that runs through them. Ridder never seems to employ any gimmicky decorating tricks, which in essence truly make her rooms timeless!

  4. KC- I know- aren't those lanterns fantastic? And I would give my right arm for that brass lamp in the library!

  7. I like the restraint. The rooms do look decorated, but not showy or indulgent.

  8. None- You're absolutely right! Not showy, something which speaks volumes about her work.

    I do not know of Katie Ridder either but I get the feeling this lady likes a clean room but loves colour and likes to use it to add a small punch - for example the blue room with those rusty red couches. They do not Scream at you but you do notice them.
