Miles Redd - Courageous Color and Chinoiserie
The iconic bird cage bedroom above from Domino Magazine made me fall completely in love with the style of Miles Redd. Raised in Atlanta, he began his design career in New York working for antiques dealer John Rosselli and later interior designer Bunny Williams. His style is bold, glamourous, elegant, colorful, and fearless. As you can see, he loves Chinoiserie and uses it with great flare. Here is my interview with Miles and a sampling of my favorite rooms from his portfolio.
Q - How do you use Chinoiserie?
A - I like it as an organic relief to geometry of architecture.
Q - Why do you like to use Chinoiserie?
A - I love a combination of masculine and feminine, and chinoiserie can strangely be both, but to me it is mostly pretty, and can add a sense of fantasy. One feels good in chinoiserie, which is why I use it.
