Miles Redd ~ Luscious Design

Miles Redd was brought up in the southern city of Atlanta, Georgia, and later moved to New York City to attend the University of New York.

After graduating, he worked for John Rosselli, who gave him a hands-on education in art and furniture. He later worked for the well known decorator Bunny Williams, learning much about antiques.

In 1998, Redd opened an office in Noho. He has earned a reputation for being one of the most talented decorators of our time. He has my vote. I believe that Miles Redd dreams in color!

He has won many awards and received much recognition for his work. I know that you will agree with me when I say that his work is admirable and glamorous.

The colors that Miles Redd uses in his palettes are bright, opulent colors.

The mixture of animal prints and emerald green and reds adds personality to the room.

Laquer is almost a trademark of Redd's.

The blue laquered walls adds such depth to this entryway.

This room is drenched in red richness.

A mixture of modern and traditional.

Such a beautiful, subtle room.

Such a warm and relaxing decor.

Redd on a more airy note.

Massive statement.

Blue and gray ~ tranqil mix.

I want this bathroom...

A lively mix of tastes.

A childs dream room.

Sheer tranquility.

A perfect place to relax after a hectic day.

Thank you Elle Decor for such a beautiful visit into the world of Miles Redd!

Lesson 11

Greetings at Home
The best place to learn and practice greetings is in the home.
Good morning, hello, etc.

Standing… or Not.

Rising to greet someone who just entered a room is a time-honored display of respect. There are times when this is difficult, especially if your lap is full – or if it is inconvenient when other co-workers are walking in and out of offices and cubicles.

Stand when someone older than you arrives, you’re meeting someone for the first time, or someone who is traditionally shown this special respect (religious leader or person of high rank.)
Host and hostesses should go greet guest when they arrive, but once the party starts, it is not expected.

When someone leaves the table it is not necessary for the other diners to stand when they return. You must judge all situations: If standing in a crowded restaurant or theater disturbs other patrons, stay seated, but standing to offer an elderly or infirm person a seat, whether at home, dinner, or a train or subway is courteous and humane.

Old rules about males rising while females remain seated are outdated, because women now often stand, offering their hands when greeting others.

(I disagree with men not standing when woman returns to her chair, but this is the choice of each person.) Many men at least partially stand.

Tomorrow ~ Lesson 12, Handshaking.

See you soon,
xoxoI love this bathroom. Miles Redd leaves nothing undone.
