About katieridder:

Knowing Katie Ridder-a fashionable woman about town-you might be surprised to learn that she was once a quiet, introverted child who preferred to sit by herself quilting rather than play outside with her mother and sisters. "My mother let me decorate my own room, she had no interest-she would rather play tennis or golf," Ridder recalls. Apparently the hours spent with needle and thread paid off. Today, Ridder is known for creating interiors that are at once whimsical and colorful, grounded and comfortable.

Putting most of her effort into the planning stages, Ridder takes great care to meet the needs of her clients with originality, which often means a bold mixing of colors, patterns and shapes. Being innovative has its pros and cons. "I'm always making new things, such as beaded light fixtures, which are wildly labor intensive and don't make me any money, but I enjoy it," Ridder says. There's no doubt that she’s quirky (she often uses "fun shapes" for headboards) and sometimes unconventional ("I like to sneak down driveways of properties for sale to look at the view"). All of it, her obsessions, her quirks, her love of the craft and her background as an editor at both House & Garden and House Beautiful, inform one exceptionally stylish interior after another.
