design crush: katie ridder

I've been a fan of Katie Ridders since college when I stumbled across her vibrant textiles on another blog. Katie gets color and pattern in a way that I really admire. Her designs are so lively and whimsical but aren't overbearing. I love that she often uses unique color combinations; just when you think its impossible to love purple and orange together.. she does it and you really love it. She is an artist. I also just admire her career in so many ways. As a constant doodler and a sometime painter, having my own textile line is my dream like Katies' is a dream. Enjoy the pictures below. They are candy to the eye.
