Traditional meets eclectic interior design

FR Review:
Recognized as a leading voice in interior design, Katie Ridder is acclaimed for her ability to strike a balance between style and tasteful discretion. Clients say that she takes care to preserve the integrity of classic elements while incorporating the unexpected. Innovative hues, whimsical accents and eclectic objects are often layered onto more traditional backgrounds, making spaces more comfortable and friendly. References say that she is very conscious of their lifestyles, and is interested in making the most of each room.

After working as a design editor for several leading shelter magazines and establishing a retail home furnishings store on the Upper East Side, Ridder founded her firm in 1995. About ten projects are undertaken each year. The majority of commissions are in Manhattan and the surrounding areas, but Ridder has taken on projects as far afield as New Zealand. Clients say that Ridder’s affable, organized, helpful manner “puts them at ease,” and that she is always the primary contact person. Charging a standard design fee and retail on product, a typical living room costs around $125,000, starting from scratch. Ridder is highly recommended for her updated classical style and intelligent view. The only challenge is booking her services–sources say “she really doesn’t work on projects she isn’t excited about.” Elle De´cor A-List.
