"The house offers a fascinating look at how two people with distinct design outlooks can weave them into a coherent whole. This process is eloquently chronicled in A House in the Country."--1stDibs/Introspective
"It's hard to know whether to effuse about [Peter Pennoyer and Katie Ridder's] impeccably elegant and entirely inviting house, or about this impeccably elegant and entirely inviting book about it."
--Andrew Solomon, National Book Award winner
"[Peter Pennoyer and Katie Ridder] have made a mess of my afternoon, since [their] exquisite new book arrived today, and I made the mistake of opening it for a moment before I turned back to my work. An hour later, I was still reading: it was so compelling that my intention of flipping through the pages for a minute turned into a long and thorough reading. I found [their] memoir at the beginning to be absolutely enthralling--it was warm, gracious and full of insight. And the house was not only beautifully photographed, it clearly is beautiful. It is so rare that a serious house gets the documentation it deserves, and its story gets told so fully and so well."--Paul Goldberger, Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic
"Architect Peter Pennoyer and designer Katie Ridder's Greek Revival-style house in upstate New York looks like it has stood there for a century. And yet--as told in A House in the Country--it's a newly created classicist's dream, filled with historically apt detailing and set in a garden inspired by England's Sissinghurst, among others." --Elle Decor
