Miles Redd has long been one of my favorite interior designers. His style is rooted in the classics infused with his own unique brand of bold gusto. He takes big risks which usually result in big payoffs and is a fan of the “more is more” philosophy. Miles applied his penchant for color and pattern to this beautiful living room in a Brooklyn townhouse. The entire house is featured in the new issue of House Beautiful and it is gorgeous. I went back and forth debating which of the rooms to feature today because they are all stunning. I decided on the living room because it makes the small space feel so grand. The beautiful wallpaper, Iksel’s “Eastern Eden” sets the stage for everything else and nearly steals the show. The pale blue of the wallpaper is such a pretty backdrop for the bolder colors of the furniture and accessories– the brown upholstery on the Lee Jofa sofa, red of the ticking stripe slipper chairs and artwork, the green of the Rose Sabu and Lee Jofa pillows– rich colors you may not have thought to pair with the pastel hues of the wallpaper. Miles always manages to turn the volume up on everything he touches, even adding custom red shades to the Visual Comfort swing arm sconces and chandelier.
I especially love this room because it is quintessentially Miles Redd and proof that his client trusted him to do what he does best bringing the vision to life. The room is in keeping with the designer’s iconic style, but feels completely fresh and inspiring. What are your thoughts on the room? Do you like the “more is more” approach or do you prefer a more pared down look?
