Lauded in Elle Decor and House Beautiful, New York City interior designer Katie Ridder’s style has captured our attention. She integrates a playful mix of antique and modern furniture, beautifully balancing comfort and sophistication. To give you a glimpse into her design work (and ideas for your own home!), we’ve rounded up images of our favorite rooms from her diverse portfolio.
Known for her dramatic accents, Ridder dressed this game room and guest room with eye-catching patterned wallpaper. The results are imaginative, warm spaces rich in texture.
Not afraid of a lively color palette, Ridder introduces pops of fresh purple into this neutral living room. Installing the curtain rods above the natural height of the windows not only makes the ceilings feel taller, but also helps to frame the incredible view.
Although we love Ridder’s use of rich fabrics and antiques, we’re also smitten by the way she casually pulls the outside in through relaxed nautical stripes, bright blue botanicals and pops of modern orange color in these seaside-inspired spaces.
By seamlessly blending vintage French-inspired furnishings with lively, unexpected accents, Ridder manages to create spaces that are equally elegant, eclectic and inviting. White coral decorations, geometric mirrors and modern industrial bookcases provide the perfect amount of contemporary intrigue.
