New York based Interior Designer, Miles Redd (aka “king of color”) continues to live up to the colorful reputation. Elle Decor recently featured a Hudson Valley house designed by architect Gil Schafer and decorated by Redd. The homeowners wanted a home that was rich in tradition and had a functional floor-plan. The result is a gorgeous, color rich 7,500 square foot countryside home.
“It was important to consider Gil’s marvelous architecture,” says Redd. “The proportions, the moldings, and the amazing staircase set the tone.” He found a Sultanabad rug in rich hues of peacock-blue with greens and reds. “That was the springboard for us,” he explains, and its palette ultimately provided the subtle cohesion of color that holds true throughout the rooms. – Elle Decor
