Entry Vous: Miles Redd Design Inspiration

Few designers knock color and pattern out of the park as well as (the hue-fully named) Miles Redd. And he’s done it again with this airy, glam-meets-whimsical entry featured on Elle Décor.

Miles started with a light, oceany blue palette, painting the wood floors with a high-gloss solid. He contrasted this with a custom striped wallpaper and a feathery botanical wallpaper on the walls—in a richer, almost teal hue—by Lee Jofa. Then he added dark, narrow moldings along the corners to create even more definition between the patterns. White paint and moldings around the doors, windows, and floor offer a visual break from the blue and help the openings of the room feel even more wide-eyed and bright.

We love the dark counterpoint of the antique Chinese bench, the large urns on dramatic, oversized pedestals, and the frame around the Venetian mirror from John Rosselli Antiques. Add in a petite turquoise garden stool, a sleek antique Chinese console, a pair of delicate brass lamps, and Moroccan-inspired star-shaped pendants from Circa Lighting, and the space has a timeless feel that would be equally at home on an Old Hollywood movie set and in a modern-day country getaway.

What do you think of Miles Redd’s floor-to-ceiling approach to color and pattern? Would you try it at home?

I agree. Miles Redd just transported me away from my dreary January Day.
