My New Obsession, I Mean Inspiration

You will have to forgive me because I am copying Peppermint Bliss from earlier this week, but I couldn't help myself, I am in love.
Even though I had seen Katie Ridder's work several times before, I did not realize all of it was hers. Then I came across this post highlighting the designer and I was marking every picture. Her work is like a breath of fresh air, unique, colorful, bold yet pretty. But what would you expect from the designer behind the prettiest logo I think I have ever seen....
What if I had a kitchen that could hold a ladder and I don't mean my dinky metal ladder....yes, what if....
Notice the light and ceiling in this picture, I also love what she does with shades....How cool is this room for children, love the mini plaid chairs....
When you have a chance to sit and study you really need to look at Katie's website, I wish I could print all her work and put it in a magazine to study page by page.

All images Katie Ridder found via Peppermint Bliss.

I completely agree with you on how pretty her logo is, makes me realize I need to stop putting off an update for mine.

Her work lives up to the delightful logo! Janell

When I scrolled down to that kitchen photo I nearly had a heart attack of joy. I LOVE the ladder. Never seen that before, but it works so well. I would, of course, bump into it frequently. But still. I see why you're so "inspired"

I love Katie Ridder's work! I am also so glad you "copied" another blogger as I am about to do the same. There is a post about a designer who is new to me and I am just crazy about her work! I guess when we get so excited about something we just want to shout it from the rooftops and share it - I hope that is the way it is taken when we want to spread the word about someone's else's blog post! Thank you for this one!

You and your cute blog can "copy" from me any old time you want, this seriously made my day! Glad we have bonded over our mutual appreciation of KatieGirls's radness.

It's all beautiful, but the kitchen ladder is a dream come true.

Sarah said...

Gosh, I am swooning over those huge window/doors in that kitchen. Such a dream! If only I could design my own home plans and build it...sigh.
