As Architectural Digest observed, Katie Ridder's "interiors are a richly layered extravaganza of exotic patterns and bright hues, peppered with venerable antiques."  Katie's extraordinary dexterity with palettes of primary and secondary colors, her playful approach to mixing antiques and modern pieces, and her eye for unusual decorative accents have all established her as a leading, and singular, figure in the world of interior design.

Clients from Switzerland to Virginia have commissioned her to design the interiors of spaces as varied as Japanese pavilions, Palm Beach estates, Park Avenue apartments, and downtown lofts.  Katie has expanded her reach by creating a wallpaper and fabric line, represented at Holland & Sherry showrooms throughout the country, as well as in Europe.

Ridder's work has been published in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Elle Décor, Town & Country, Domino, and House BeautifulArchitectural Digest, Elle Décor and House Beautiful have featured her projects on their covers.  She is regularly included in the "Top 100" lists of designers by magazines such as House Beautiful, Elle Décor, and New York Magazine. Katie's first book Rooms was published by Vendome Press in 2011 and is in its third printing.  A House in the Country - Ridder's second book, co-authored with her husband, architect Peter Pennoyer - has graced three Amazon best-sellers lists.

Katie's design work extends to her involvement with many groups. She is currently on the Board of Directors of the Garden Conservancy.
