Love at First Sight

The first time I saw him I thought, “Oh, my.  It’s too good to be true.” But then he turned up again and again, each time better than the last.  I didn’t know if he’d be good for me.  I wasn’t sure there was a place for him in my life.  So bold. So vibrant.  So self-assured.  
But the more I got to know him, I realized he didn’t always need to be the center of attention.  He could sit quietly (all right, not too quietly) in a corner.  One thing’s for sure – I just can’t shake him.

If you care anything about decorating, I’m sure that you are aware of Miles Redd’s new collection of fabric and wallpaper for Schumacher.  That the product is completely in line with his aesthetic and true to how he lives is not surprise to me.  Authentically is just how Miles does things.  

The product is engaging, but the editorial images have been a delight.  Seems, the whole process was a bit of a party.  “I had a blast working on the collaboration with Schumacher,” Miles told me.  “Dara Carponigro, [their creative director] is a design force and we saw eye-to-eye the whole way.”

Not completely altruistic, Miles reaped his own rewards. “Personally, I got to make a lot of fabric that I had longed for in the market, which doubled the fun. I suppose I am greedy!” he said.

Still, it’s win-win.  There are four or five fabrics I could use right now, including Cubist, pictured top, which I just cannot shake. Pick your favorite here

  1. Miles has style beyond; I go back and forth from the cubist to his gorgeous chinoiserie!

  2. I love Miles Redd but I am afraid I'd need to revamp my entire house and design aesthetic to incorporate any( except for the simple stripe) of his new designs into your own home..
    Not happening..

  3. We're just now in the process of ordering the mirrored wallpaper for accent areas in our living room – it's a marvelous collection but who would expect anything else?

  4. I"m going to use the mirrored wallpaper on my hall and living room ceiling…to compliment my mirror and black kitchen!

  5. I think you will enjoy this! I am the "old lady at the table"!

    I met Miles when he worked for his uncle John Rosselli in New York at the store on the River ! Miles was 19!
    I explained that I was from California; and I needed a "catalogue" because I wanted so many things from the store!!

    (in those days…mostly antiques…..4 floors of them)! And Miles said…."we don't have a catalogue because the inventory changes daily!"

    I said….can you make me one?

    Well…I think I paid something like $1200.00 for this book that Mlles put together in a notebook binder of all the things that were there then!

    He had that "in him"!!!! I am so thrilled out of my mind at his success! What a great guy!

    somehow I want him to read this about himself!

    A few years later; I saw him told him this story
    ……and he said…."You could sell that! It was the only catalogue!!!"

    You have a great eye! He is complete genius!!!
