Peter Pennoyer & Katie Ridder

Thursday, October 15, 2015

The November issue of Architectural Digest features the most exceptional "before & after" design projects....   A particular stand out home for me, is the complete gut and redesign of a NYC 1850s Greenwich Village townhouse, re-imagined by architect Peter Pennoyer. It's really only through seeing the "before" photos that you can begin to grasp the level of talent and skilled vision that brought this severely dilapidated and chopped up space back to a single family home. The townhouse's recreated central staircase is featured on the cover, image above + read more here.

I have similar appreciation for the work of interior designer Katie Ridder, who happens to be Pennoyer's wife. Ridder's appeal lies in her distinctive ability to layer a range of design components - color palette, furnishings, accessories, fixtures - in manner that echos a timeless style. She also doesn't back away from infusing her rooms with color, mixing saturated tones with patterned fabrics, upholstery, carpet and wall coverings.
The couple's Millbrook, NY, country home, designed collectively, was photographed (and featured on the cover, image above) for AD's August 2015 issue. Back in January, New York Social Diary, (I'm a daily reader) included a Q&A with Katie and intimate photos of their main residence in Westchester, NY. Check out the photos below....
