Miles Redd embarked on his interior design career after graduating from NYU, honing his skills with luminary antiques dealer John Rosselli and decorator Bunny Williams. In 1998 he opened his own design firm in New York City’s NoHo neighborhood.
He is known for his quirky brand of cozy glamour. His unique aesthetic vision is characterized by playful mélanges of high and low, invigorated with whimsical splashes of color and modern gestures. Drawing on inspirations ranging from Richard Avedon fashion photographs to Rene Gruau illustrations, Redd has crafted interiors for a wide array of venues. His trademark approach to design has brought to life rooms infused with boldness, fantasy, and sophistication.
Miles was the creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home from 2003 to 2013. His work has been featured in Vogue, W, House Beautiful, Elle Décor, Veranda, and em>Architectural Digest. Miles was most recently honored as one of Architectural Digest’s “AD 100” in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
You can spend hours ‘googling’ Redd’s work…If you ask me, I think we would all like to live in such an inspired home, as those that Redd is able to create. When it comes to interior, Redd pushes the boundaries with colour, pattern, texture, depth, and glamour- all combined together.
His use of various colours and patterns: florals, geometrics, and prints- however, still being able to make them fit effortlessly together is a talent which deserves an awe-inspired applause, he certainly gets it from me!
Many times when we look at a magazine picture of a home it lacks the element of inspiration and the desire to create. Not only this, however, to put it frankly we find many things unpractical about it. I don’t think we can say the same of Redd’s designs- they are truly eloquent artworks beckoning us to explore our very own inner artist.
I believe that if we were to walk into one of Redd’s rooms, we would find our life added with a bit of colour (…literally). Our palettes will be filled and extended with infinite hues and pigments.
Redd is an artist who is able to create opulence by evoking and awakening an emotion in us. The mirrored doorway he designed [see picture below], features the majesty and grandeur he so righteously constructs.
Miles Redd- you are our design inspiration of the month!
