British Interior Design in Tribeca
Katie Lydon is a young interior designer based in Tribeca, NY. She arrived from the UK at the turn of the millenium. In 2002 she started her own design studio and her style quickly caught the eye of Tribeca residents.

This Soho loft dining room is full of allure despite its simplicity.

The room, quietly elegant, is in itself a work of understatement and art.
The pink painted bedroom of the same Soho loft is infused with softness. Here again, amidst otherwise neutral colors, the jewel tones in the room come from the painting above the bed.
