Ridder Me This

Katie Ridder knows how to make every room camera ready. Her years spent working at House & Garden and House Beautiful prepped her for an incredibly successful career as an interior designer. Her style is sophisticated and comfortable with punches of bold color, vivid patterns, and welcoming warmth.

Her use of color and pattern is so remarkable that she developed her own line of wallpaper and fabric that are swoon worthy in every way. I hope you let her eye-catching, bright, and confident rooms inspire you into the weekend…

See you Monday!
