If you have an infatuation with vivid colors, pattern and vivacious fervor of more opulent days gone by, you must be familiar with Miles Redd. He is a Manhattan based designer with uptown stylings but his southern Atlanta-born roots show through his design charm. In the February issue of House Beautiful, Redd’s work on a Brooklyn Townhouse was exhibited in perfect East meets West meets South fashion. The article started with the ideal phrase “no stone unturned and no wall uncovered”… PERFECTION! This narrow abode was adorned in rich grassclothes, intricate Chinese papers and even feathers. The bold color choices, sultry texture stories and the layered artwork trick the mind into not caring about the tightness of the 2-room-per-floor townhouse and instead concentrate more on the individual moments. That is why, for a change, Redd exclaimed the importance of smart room planning and pushing the furniture closer to the walls in small rooms. Not to mention the idea that more furniture in a small space not only adds seating but a bigger feeling. Check it out, it is brilliant.
