Miles Redd's Red Door


For the quickest, easiest, least expensive way to add great Chinoiserie drama and impact to your home, what about a red door? This great idea is from that stunning Manhattan apartment by Miles Redd featured in the July House Beautiful. Miles had the trim painted in faux-horn, but we mortals could skip that step.

I despise the internal doors on our new house -- cheap cheap CHEAP. Alas though, high gloss would only heighten the effect.

At some point, I'll change them all out and THEN I'll do something like this (but maybe in Chinese Blue...).

Use black in eggshell-gorgeous to make cheap doors look great.
