New York-based, California-born designer Katie Ridder has a playful, exuberant style. She layers rich colours — peacock blues and tangy oranges — with a painterly eye and blends international influences — Turkish, Chinese, French and North African — to unique effect. But at the heart of all her work is a deep respect for craft. Ridder works with master artisans to come up with custom fabrics and furniture, an attention to detail that makes each of her spaces exquisite.
