Overview

Kim Parker’s rise to international renown as a designer and artist—her bedding and bath line launched at Bloomingdale’s, and she recently introduced new dinnerware and giftware collections with Spode—is truly the story of the American dream. A promising classical flutist with no formal design education, she hit the streets of New York City with her gorgeous designs, worked her way up, and is now one of the hottest, hippest contemporary designers anywhere. Her signature floral prints have become hugely popular and she’s been profiled in countless design magazines around the world.

Kim Parker Home, a thoughtful look at the artist’s creative process, shows how anyone can create an “interior garden” in their home or apartment. A designer with a funky flair, Parker combines her own fantastic floral prints with unconventional flea market finds, fashionable antiques, and unique modern pieces to create a vibrant, colorful look. The book’s stunning photographs feature her varied collections of designer rugs, bath and bedding, and dinnerware, as well as examples of the inspiration she finds both in nature and in the city.

A wonderful sourcebook for anyone with an eye for mixing vintage and contemporary, Kim Parker Home is also a revealing window on how to make the most of your own creativity and vision.
