Famous Designer Series 2016: Katie Ridder and Peter Pennoyer

Husband and wife team Katie Ridder, designer, and Peter Pennoyer, architect, are Decorative Arts Trust featured duo for this special event. Their weekend home was featured in the August 2015 edition of "Architectural Digest." It was the sense of seclusion that convinced Pennoyer and Ridder to build on a six-acre parcel with sprawling farmland surrounding it on all sides. Remarkably, it is the first house Pennoyer has ever completed for himself. The interiors are "all Katie," Pennoyer said. They will discuss how this project illustrates the give and take between architect and interior designer.
