One of the most talked about books this Fall is coming to oomph Greenwich
along with its creators. A House in the Country
chronicles the beauty and uniqueness, of the stately country home, of architect, Peter Pennoyer, and designer, Katie Ridder. Together, they have created a beautiful home in bucolic Millbrook, New York. Every page tells a new story; each room a distinct and thoughtful journey through design inspired by history and nature. Peter's classic, greek revival, architectural style, modernized with today's eco-conscience amenities, and the exuberant decorating style of Katie, is a masterful mix, sure to stand the test of time. Classical details are at ever turn (and high above) layered with heirlooms and the comforts of a country, family home.
One of the most alluring aspects of this exquisite home and book, is the outstanding use of color. It's no surprise to see the rich jewel tones in the work of Katie Ridder, nor the kaleidoscope of colors she uses throughout the home — bold combinations only a truly, confident, professional can masterfully execute. Gardens are lush with an ongoing variety of flowers, trees, and surrounded by the beautifully wild landscape of the Millbrook hills.
