Katie Ridder

My Feb edition of Domino finally arrived this morning, and because I feel like I'm so starved for visual inspiration, instead of saving it for tonight (or the weekend) I read it this morning over my cuppa at work. I have to say I'm very excited by the NY apartment decorated by Katie Ridder. I'm not a die-hard fan of her work, but this place is really speaking to me. The palette is exactly what I want to do with my place - soft blues and celadons mixed with muted sandy browns, white trims, and dark wood furniture. Gorgeous! I also really like the combination of furniture and accessories - just enough modernity thrown in with the traditional to make it not look old and stuffy. This will keep me satisfied until...oh...tomorrow!

I really liked this project too! I think it's a classic home but it's not fussy or old. It's like the perfect balance!

I always knew you had great taste. I love the apartment and the dress! Tres chic!

I totally agree Jennifer - so I'll be keeping my eyes open for future Katie Ridder projects, as I think the balance she's acheived is not an easy thing to do.

It's a good one Rhonda...enjoy!

Thanks HC! I wore my dress to see Pink Martini when we were in NY, but now I need to find another excuse to wear it so it doesn't gather dust at the back of my wardrobe!

I loved this home also, all of the serene colors and great furniture. Great issue this month! :)

I really liked this apartment too (and the blue dress, for that matter). It's both calming and elegant--a really happy, comfortable place.
