Miles Redd designed the study/dining area featured below. Take note of the chevron pattern in the wood floor. The ebonized wood and sterling bookshelf is gorgeous. I adore the high gloss finish, don’t you? What do we think about art hung directly on the bookshelf itself? I posted another photo this look on Friday …I must say… I kinda like it. While rows and rows of book spines are wonderful to look at, breaking it up with a bit of art adds a layer of interest.
The carved flip-top game table was found in the D&D building at Agostino Antiques. You’ll find both French antiques and reproductions at Agostino. They are a great source for adding a smidge of history to your home décor. Below, notice the tone on tone graphic patterned floor. The color of the millwork enhances the pattern on the floor. The oushak rug adds yet another layer, bringing colors into the room from the foyer featured though the doorway. Well done!
A special thanks goes out to Will at Bright . Bazaar who focused my attention on Miles Redd last week. Miles’ portfolio is absolutely worth taking a peek at. He has certainly warmed me up to the idea of using unexpected color in my home décor. Perhaps it will inspire the same in you?
