Coffee Table Book || A House In The Country

Design duo Katie Ridder, interior designer, and Peter Pennoyer, architect, decided to build their own dream home after years of making their clients' dreams come true. A House in The Country, published by Vendome Press, tells the story of this home- from conception, to design, to decoration to landscaping accompanied by beautiful photographs by Eric Piasecki.  This Greek Revival inspired home in Millbrook, NY is vibrant and spirited evident in all the color and fabric selections. Yet it still maintains its classic form.  The gardens are equally as beautiful.  The couple share anecdotes throughout the book of the process and challenges they had to overcome.  My favorite part of the book- getting such unique design inspiration.

The daring purple tile in the entrance makes the space. WOW! Something fun had to happen after you entered that red trimmed front door, right?

And the gardens (sigh!). Just beautiful.

What a magical home, right? I love how it is filled with such personality. You can get a copy of this book here
