Miles Redd's Chinoiserie Foyer


Where does one begin and end in extolling yet another masterpiece by Miles Redd featured in the July House Beautiful? This is a Chinoiserie foyer with great wow factor. But unlike our feminine Chinoiserie foyer featured yesterday, this one is for two men and has a masculine vibe. The unexpected color choice of chocolate brown for this classic de Gournay wallpaper, the neoclassical console, the faux malachite lamps, the doors in garden green leather with nailhead trim, the chevron floor, the baseboards painted brown. Here is Chinoiserie done modern, masculine, dramatic, unexpected, perfect!

Miles Redd never gets it wrong. He's one of my design faves...in the ranks of Albert Hadley and Tony Duquette

The chevron floor - oh and those leather green/blue doors - fantastic! It's such a powerful space, but not a bit heavy. Thanks for more great inspiration!

Sanity Fair-I love that it is for an apartment of two men and done in a more masculine palette. Often people think of Chinoiserie as more feminine. This is not girly at all, just elegant and sophisticated.

I agree with Renee; the nail head trim on the doors are faboo. My eyes are drawn to them straight away. Actually, I admire all he does.

G.-Miles was saying that the leather will just get better looking as they get beat up.

Dumbwit Tellher-He is amazing and the doors are inspired.
