Here’s a look at the best East Coast interior designers for your next upgrade …
Katie Ridder Inc.
As New York Home noted, Katie Ridders “is trademarked for the ease with which she connects cultures and continents, high and low art, eras and styles. To describe her work as eclectic, however, means missing the point because, while it reflects diverse influences, it is recognizably the product of a single sensibility – one with a distinctive attitude towards color, texture, proportions and scales. “
Katie Ridder’s extraordinary dexterity with palettes of primary and secondary colors, her playful approach to mixing antiques and modern pieces, and her eye for unusual decorative accents have made her a leading and unique figure in the world of interior design.

Bunny Williams’ passion for design extends beyond the interior to the garden. Bunny co-owned Treillage Ltd., a New York outdoor furniture store, with antique dealer John Rosselli for 25 years.
While beautiful rooms are Bunny’s first consideration, customer service and attention to detail are of the utmost importance.

The senior designers and their teams work with Bunny at clients’ homes in the US and abroad.
