Triggered by the lyrics of a pop song, I asked the boys today, “Would it bother you if I didn’t like your girlfriend?” Each – 19, 15 and 12 – replied, “I dunno.” The middle added, “It would depend on how close you lived.” France, I think, suddenly seemed like a good idea.
I’d certainly consider myself lucky if we could collaborate on any project as lovely as Miles Redd’s redecoration of his parents’ home. I hope you’ve seen the story in this month’s House Beautiful. I have to admit, it left me wanting more. Miles to the rescue. Outtakes are on his Instagram feed here. Do hop on over and follow along.
