It feels like time has not been a friend of mine, but I am so desperately looking forward to some down time. I had a brief window of down time for the first time this weekend, and I was able to enjoy browsing through the new book, A House in The Country, by renown architect Peter Pennoyer and the always chic and colorful designer Katie Ridder. While they are accomplished in their own right, the husband and wife team joined forces to create a picturesque retreat in Millbrook, New York.
The book showcases the wonderfully crafted architectural details that went into this home, from the moldings to the columns to every curated space. The Greek Revival architecture pairs wonderfully with Ridder’s colorful and dynamic palette of design. She leaves no detail untouched. The design of each room seems unexpected, yet the vibrant hues flow beautifully throughout. This book is truly a treat and feast for those who appreciate a fantastic house and memorable design. The book itself shows the layout of the garden and identifies each flower they used. It is every bit as educational as it is beautiful.
Below are some photos of the home published a year earlier from AD. Pick up your copy of A House in the Country to see the real beauty. Also, check my Instagram Story to see more of the home. It is exactly the place I would want to be this fall.
