Miles Redd transforms a Brooklyn townhouse into a colorful world of wonder.
The family in beautiful pink/red and blue/green hues in brought together nicely with the pastel blue, floral Eastern Eden wallpaper by Iksel.
The Climate sectional by Dune is covered in Callahan Velvet from Lee Jofa. Throw pillows in Rose Cumming's Sabu and Lee Jofa's Hollyhock. Touches of red — in the ticking stripe on the chairs, in the swing-arm lamps and chandelier by Visual Comfort — "make the room feel festive," says designer Miles Redd.
A George III–style mahogany chair looks fresh and light in white.
The stair hall functions as a gallery.
Redd stands in the foyer, where a Queen Anne–style mirror bought at auction reaches almost up to the cornice. When it comes to furniture, "bigger is better, always," he says. A custom screen is covered in Holland & Sherry's Kensington wool. The front door is painted in Farrow & Ball Hague Blue, custom-mixed in an oil-based Full Gloss. Benjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint in Harbor Fog. Light fixture from Lumiere.
Classical living room arrangement.
Bunny Williams Home's Acanthus mirror is centered over a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sofa and flanked by Christopher Spitzmiller lamps. But there's also an exotic air, thanks to a monumental ginger jar from Manhing Imports, a Chinese rug, Ralph Lauren Home's leopard-print pillows, grass cloth by Winfield Thybony on the walls, and an imported ikat at the windows. A rustic seagrass-wrapped chair is upholstered in silk velvet by Décor de Paris. "I love that unexpected combination," says Redd.
Grass cloth reappears in the kitchen. Clemson Classic pendants by Restoration Hardware. CornuFé range by La Cornue.
Green breakfast nook - Redd extended Schumacher's Imperial Trellis wallpaper onto the ceiling of the breakfast nook.
An antique crystal ship chandelier from Jonathan Burden sails over a glass-top dining table from Mecox Gardens. Benjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint in Bird's Egg.
An antique Georgian mirror seems to float in a corner of the powder room, against the custom peacock-feather wallpaper. Henry sink by Waterworks. Benjamin Moore Impervex in Gulf Shores on the door.
Master Bedroom - The walls in the master bedroom are covered with Roger Arlington's Chinese Pewter paper. "What I love about it is that it changes color all day long," says Redd. "Sometimes it's gold, sometimes it's lavender, and sometimes it's silver." The flirtatious ruffle on the curtains, in silk taffeta from Rosen & Chadick, was inspired by legendary decorator Rose Cumming. Matouk bed linens. Tapis d'Avignon carpet by Patterson, Flynn & Martin. Benjamin Moore Waterborne Ceiling Paint in Crystal Blue.
Christopher Spitzmiller's Nicholas lamp and Treillage's porcelain stool add dabs of blue.
In the master bath, Schumacher's Shantung Silhouette wallpaper sets off Waterworks' Empire tub. Ann-Morris sconce. Sherwin-Williams Harmony in Waterfall on walls and Bright White on ceiling.
Pierre Frey's Monaco on the headboard and Clarence House's Papilio on the curtains add more blues to the guest room.
In the guest room, Iksel's Iznik Charpi wallpaper has the look of Moroccan tile.
The daughter's room is all purple done in Lyford Trellis wallpaper by China Seas.
