BOOK FIRST LOOK - DESIGNER KATIE RIDDER'S COLORFUL ROOMS!

Study with coral sofa with patterned throw, chest converted into a coffee table, dark wood walls, a patterned area rug and a red pendant light

It seems to be interior designer Katie Ridder's week here on COCOCOZY. I started the week with a Katie Ridder home and now I'm ending the week with images from a new book due out November 1st all about Katie's work.

After I posted on Monday about an interesting home from Katie's online portfolio, I got an email about the book.  It is being published by Vendome Press and is called Katie Ridder Rooms written by Heather Smith McIsaac and photographs by Eric Piasecki. I have not received my advance copy yet (it is in the mail according to nice Meghan over at Vendome...wooohooo) but I have been given an exclusive first look at what is inside.

Can I say awesome? Katie is known for using texture, color and non-traditional "curious" combinations to create stunning memorable spaces.  Lot's of interesting details in a Katie Ridder designed room.

Here's just a little sneak peek...loads of inspiration....can't wait to have this for my coffee table!

Bathroom with a white clawfoot tub, wood floor, an a wall of blue floor to ceiling subway tiles, windows with white blinds, and wood stool with green cushion is being used as a towel holde
A traditional clawfoot tub pops against a wall of peacock blue floor to ceiling subway tiles. (above)

Home office with a brown sofa with chartreuse piping, a white desk with a metal rolling chair with a chartreuse seat and back, white walls, chartreuse window trimmings and an orange Moroccan pouf with chartreuse stitching and a Lucite coffee table
Clever use of chartreuse throughout the room including on the sofa piping, the Moroccan pouf stitching and the trim on the windows. (above)

A white kitchen with aqua mosaic tiles from counter to ceiling backsplash, wood floors and stainless appliances

I like these rooms.  My favorite in this batch is the home office with the green trimmed windows!  Do you like any of these rooms?  Which space might work in your home?

Thank you Meghan over at Vendome for giving me a first look at some of the images from the book just for COCOCOZY.  Readers, I have a few more of these rooms that have been shared just with me...and I'll bring those to you too very soon!

Happy happy Friday!

  5. I love the tile in the bathroom. It just pops right out and grabs your attention, but because of the windows it's not too much!

  6. I love Katie's work too. Her wallpaper (crabs) at the 2011 Hamptons Designer Showhouse was absolutely charming.
    Lucky you to get a sneak peek and advance copy.
    I hope to get to a book signing!
    Happy weekend.

Btw, did you get your dress repaired? Ok hope you have a great weekend. Please email me at mikky@todaloos.com re the photo when you have a chance. Thanks!

  17. Katie's rooms are always my favorite to look at because of the way she uses color so effectively. Typically people can't handle the intensity of her colors and let them take over a room; she treads the line of restraint and vibrancy perfectly
