Cool Ridder

It must have gotten out that I go around calling people darling and sit in the back seat of the car so that I can scream Home, James to Jon, because for some reason I now receive Town and Country magazine. Yup I’m fancy like that.


I’m not going to lie I never really pick up an issue of T&C, but when it arrives at my doorstop I will of course cherish it like all my other paper goodies that arrive every month with a thump that has me running towards my front door.


I was happy to go through it and see that one of my all time favorite designers was in it. One of favorites would be the one and only Katie Ridder. Katie has this great ability to balance a little bit of global, a little bit of boho chic and a little bit of traditional that just makes for perfection! Her work reminds me of what Anthropologie would look like all grown up!


Her work was featured in the magazine, because she recently finished decorating one of her parents homes.


Check it out:


In love with the taupe/grey shade she used for the walls, the tiled floor, the artwork, the light! Love it all.


Oh you know I love a good foo dog plus green grass cloth ah heaven! I love all the pops of green that she uses all throughout the space. I love her personal style as well! She could totally fit in with these girls.

Love have brave she is with color. She matches blue, with green, with pink, with  orange! Nothing matches, but everything goes perfectly.

I totally have library envy. I always wanted a library in my home and this one would fit quite nicely with in my dream home.

I will back this afternoon with some of Katie’s tips to get her look!


Have you seen and loved Katie’s work before or is she new to you?

Love Katie Ridder and her feature in this month's T&C (don't know how I ended up getting not one but two sent to my house monthly -- anyone know how you end up with a subscription?!).

That is my kind of girl! I just bought myself the newest Town and Country (we cant all be fancy like you with subscriptions :) ) but and hoarding it like diamonds until my flight tomorrow where I will carefully and deliberately devour every page! Looking forward to her feature!
