Katie Ridder can create the most wonderfully traditional rooms but they still have that wow factor. Texture, colour, pattern all play a part. This former decorating editor from House and Garden and House Beautiful is equally at home with antique crystal chandeliers or midcentury sputnik lights.
Just wanted to give a little shout out to Swank Lighting for being our new sponsor. They have some of the most gorgeous lamps we've EVER seen so we were really excited for them to be a part of our blog. Have a little peek at their wares, but beware of free-flowing drool. This is lamp porn at it's finest.
Andrea of for me, for you emailed with a contribution to my grey post from the other day. Check out this glimpse into her home, complete with some mid-century classics THAT SHE FOUND ON CRAIGSLIST FOR $170 (FOR BOTH CHAIRS!!!). Everyone could use a little Cherner and Saarinen in their lives don't you think?? (Thanks Andrea!)
Audrey sent us an email that I wanted to share: "I've been reading your blog for a while and thought I'd contribute a 'dog on chair' photo of my Boston Terrier, Edward. Edward is actually a girl, named after a female computer hacker character from the anime, Cowboy Bebop. The chair she's sitting on I found at a yard sale for $7! The other photo is of our living room." LOVE Edward, LOVE the chair and LOVE your living room! Thanks Audrey!
Katherine Slingluff specializes in photographing interiors, and below are some of my favourite spaces she's captured. But be sure to check out her portfolio, because it also includes incredibly dramatic photographs of rooms in run-down structures.
