I love great houses. And if you’re one of our readers, I would dare say you do as well. The elements of a great home is never built overnight, and it’s a continuing process - a beautiful, long process that is. The interior design history is complete with great designers who we look to, and admire for their style sensitivities, excellent panache, and exquisite sense of tastes. In our generation, one such designer is Miles Redd.
“Life in the 21st century means taking the best of history and making it work for you.” Miles Redd
The Big Book of Chic by Miles Redd
The overachiever is well-known for his quirky brand of cozy glamour. His unique aesthetic vision is characterized by some of the elements I love in design - a playful mélange of high and low, that is invigorated with whimsical splashes of color and modern gestures. The talented designer draws on inspirations ranging from Cecil Beaton's photographs to René Gruau's illustrations. His trademark approach to design has brought to life rooms infused with boldness, fantasy, and sophistication. This lavishly illustrated volume is an inspiration to me, and I'm sure will be an inspiration to anyone interested in a variety of spirited and eclectic designs. Living beautifully is indeed very chic!
