Miles Redd Dreams In Color

Have I died and gone to Buckhead heaven? When Miles Redd is the interior designer, wonderful things happen. Before this post ends, you will be fully aware that I believe that Miles Redd can run circles around most designers. If you don't want to take my word for it,  enjoy his work shown here on the home of Daneille and Glen Rollins in Atlanta, Georgia.

For those of you that are not aware that Miles Redd is at the top of the list of  respected designers, let me assure you that I am in a blissful state as I prepare this post. For those of you that want to see more of Miles Redd, I have previously introduced him, and will leave the address at the end of this post.

You will notice that Redd uses a lot of brown and a lot of lacquer. Ok. So he has already won my heart, but in lieu of this attraction, he is too talented for words, my precious friends.

Miles Redd

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

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.

Now on to the home...

Miles let the owners take care of the five-acres of grounds...

which, as you can see, are absolutely breathtaking...

so lush...

with a koi pond.  Sorry, but this was a two-pager. I love koi.

Let's go in and see what I am raving about.

The foyer is luscious alone... and the zebra rug...

the bird room...

and the outrageously lovely living (family) room with the brown sofa that you know I love... 

is filled with beautiful decor.

Here Redd uses lacquer on the kitchen cabinets. Look at the ceiling...

and see the gilded constellation zodiac art.  Are you convinced yet?

The breakfast room is so airy and fresh, and the view of the gardens is spectacular.

You can not look at this room and not see "Miles Redd" written all
over it.Lacquer is used again on the walls and bookshelves in this library.

Over-the-top luxurious is the only way to describe the bedroom and sitting area.

Agree?  I told you, my friends.

Precious and beautiful.

Closet?  Yep!

and to top it all off, the dressing room which is off of the bathroom, which I am sure is wonderful too.

To see more, and to read the entire article, get yourself a copy of the August issue of Town and Country magazine, which by the way, is becoming one of my favorite reads.
