Given his extraordinary talent, you would not expect Miles Redd to be so young. His style is characterized by bold colors, lustrous surfaces, layers of offbeat glamor and an inviting comfort. His rooms are a wonderful blend of the masculine and feminine, geometric and curvilinear. He loves Hollywood style and uses chinoiserie pieces to great advantage. The Hollywood vibe is not surprising given his background -- he initially came to the Big Apple from Atlanta to study film at NYU. While at NYU, he became interested in set design and after graduation, went to work for John Rosselli antiques and then the immensely talented Bunny Williams. Miles Redd has the soul of an artist, and I for one am thrilled that interior design claimed him so that we can all benefit from his ability to channel his gift into the creative spaces that showcase his vision.

|Redd lacquered walls in Farrow & Ball's Hague Blue, he states it is "a great way to do a moody color because of the way it reflects light. It doesn't look dark so much as rich." The chairs include a graceful Maison Jansen slipper chairs from John Norwood Antiques, upholstered in Velours de Soie Uni in Bleu de France from Prelle. "It's a divine fabric, with an inky, lustrous quality." Via House Beautiful.|
