Good Morning! I hope everyone had a good weekend. I am still trying to figure out where ours went but I guess the good ones always seem to go by too fast! After finding the picture I posted to Instagram on Sunday of the bedroom designed by architect Peter Pennoyer and decorated by his wife Katie Ridder (talk about a dream team), I needed to know more about the rest of their house. Peter Pennoyer is an American architect who is an expert in Classical styles and known for his attention to detail and modern twist on traditional architecture. Ridder is an interior designer who is known for her ability to mix bold colors with patterns with antiques and has her own line of fabrics and wallpaper.

I stumbled upon the May 2017 issue of Architectural Digest that had a feature of their Greek Revival country home in Millbrook and it did not disappoint! Every detail has been thought out to a tee resulting in a masterpiece of tailored yet relaxed elegance. The perfect country retreat.


A built in bed nook based is based off the one in the home of Thomas Jefferson at Monticello.


The bedding and drapery fabric is by Libeco and is paired with matching wallpaper. Pops of green are introduced with two neighbors chairs.


Any room with de Gournay wall paper is perfection in my opinion and this living room is no exception. The soft rose pink is the perfect backdrop for Ridder’s fearless introduction of a wide range of colors and patterns. Every detail has been considered in great length, including the custom embroidered valances.


Ridder’s Turtle Bay wallpaper hangs in an eclectic powder room that is fitted with two playful elephant sconces


The curved staircase and graffito inspired wall covering is the perfect marriage of Pennoyer and Kidder’s styles


The purple carpet on the staircase is a continuation of the deep purple used in both the living and dining rooms



The second story boasts a stunning atrium complete with stained glass that floods the middle of the home with natural light
