The illuminating text details Ridder’s singularly creative approach to the essential elements of each room, including furniture plan, color, lighting, finishes, pattern, layering, and scale. Illustrated with specially commissioned photographs by Eric Piasecki and featuring an introduction by longtime editor in chief of House & Garden Dominique Browning, Katie Ridder: More Rooms provides endless inspiration for design aficionados.
