A Vision In Redd

When you know someone well or work with someone closely, their handwriting can become very distinct. The same goes for designers. Immediately upon looking at a picture of a room, no matter how different the concept, a true designer can have a signature appeal. In the case of designer Miles Redd, his writing is all over the perfectly upholstered wall.

If you have read some of my previous posts, you will know about my enthusiasm for Redd. He can not only make a house a masterpiece of design, but he also has the talented ability to make the design come alive. His interiors are part whimsy, sophisticated, modern, and traditional. Each room is a surprise, yet each room is cohesive with the spirit of the home. Redd uses color as art and pattern as play. All the home’s a stage, and his design is the lead role. His work can be as lighthearted as a Nancy Meyers movie, or as dramatic as Sally Field in the South.  If it sounds like I am gushing (ok, I am..I admit it), let his work prove my point.

Here are just a few of my favorites. Go ahead, paint the town Redd!
