Colorful and Eclectic by Miles Redd

"When someone understands how to live and how to arrange a room, and everywhere you look there is something beautiful, that's what makes a room luxurious.  When it has a sense of drama--a cinematic quality--and you want to spend time in it."  -Miles Redd

Well said, Miles, well said.

Feast your pretty eyes on this colorful and eclectic Manhattan apartment designed by the one-and-only Miles Redd.  I can't get over the ruffled drapes (how much fun would those be in a little girl's room?!) and the chinoiserie print on blue India tea paper in the Master bedroom.

My favorite characteristic of his designs are how collected each of his rooms look.  It's as if the homeowners have always owned every piece but needed a little help in placing them.  I find so much inspiration in his designs and never tire of looking at the same apartment over and over again.  And check out the doors in these pics--he pays extra attention to them in every project and they're always dressed up in some manor.

On a short note, a big THANK YOU to all who came out to our party on Friday to support Head Start!  We had a wonderful time and the turnout was amazing!!  All three of our artists were there to mingle and meet you all but if you didn't have a chance to make it by, we still have all of their pieces up if you'd like to have a look-see.

Have a marvelous Monday!

  1. A "little girls room"? It would be wasted on a "little girls room" put the ruffle in the living room where it is more unexpected.
