Wo(man) Crush Wednesday | Katie Ridder

I've got a major #WCW on Katie Ridder, who is known to grace the Top 100 List of all my favorite publications- House beautiful, Elle Decor, NY Magazine to name a few.  Her style is so distinctive - fusing color, culture, texture,  time periods, materials, - she is the ultimate master of the Mix! 

Furthermore, her custom pieces are layered with detail upon detail - she has a meticulous eye for it! Sometimes I carefully study her work to try to extrapolate all the layers she uses and am overwhelmed by how many different resources she uses to create one piece- that's why each piece she crafts is so unique and in turn, each project so different from the other and equally bespoke. 

Additionally, Katie has developed an amazing textile/wallpaper line. I have yet to meet a client who has not fallen in love with her "Turtle Bay", just goes to show that despite having a unique flair she is incredibly universal.

(Man) Crush Wednesday | SF's own Ken Fulk

I mentioned in yesterday's post  that Kips Bay Showhouse announced it's list of designers at the gala Monday night and I was thrilled to see that San Francisco's very own Ken Fulk will be participating. 

One of the hottest designers in San Francisco, Ken Fulk does it all - from commercial to residential spaces, weddings, events, and furniture.  Ken is best known for his creative and dramatic spaces all furnished in a combination of antique, vintage pieces, modern art, and always complete with a touch of taxidermy.  

The best appointed restaurant's in San Francisco all bear Fulk's touch - Leo's Oyster Bar, Marlowe, and of course The Battery, to name a few. 

For these reasons, Mr. Fulk is my man crush this Wednesday and I am anxiously anticipating what he does at Kips Bay! - off to purchase my flights before I forget but just a sampling of Fulk's brilliance below!
