Traditional & Colorful Interior Design by Miles Redd

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

San Francisco Decorator Showcase: Modern Kitchen Pantry

Although this year’s Decorator Showcase in San Francisco has come to a close, I wanted to show you some details in the “Modern Kitchen Pantry” designed by Tinsley Hutson-Wiley and Allison Bloom. The design duo was tasked with designing a new kitchen while leaving the old one in tact. The is result is simply beautiful.

Just off the formal dining room, this secondary kitchen was envisioned to be a space to prep for dinner, grab afternoon snack or enjoy a cup of tea. The lone window overlooks the San Francisco Bay and route ships would take importing tea and spices. Paneling covers a wall that had to stay and a large tone on tone Union Jack was painted as a nod to teatime. Open shelving allows this galley kitchen feel larger and airy.

The designers hung two beautiful geometric pendants in ebony by Ralph Lauren and painted the floors white.

White ceramic tile with dark contrasting grout covers the opposite wall. The existing countertops needed to be preserved and were covered with zinc.

The leather pulls on the cabinets are the absolute best!

The design team created a spot for tea by the window and hung wooden bread and cutting boards on the wall. Love this!
burlap curtain pantry
A pantry for tea, spices and snacks is built at the far end of the kitchen. A single floor-length burlap drape is the perfect touch and complements the burlap Roman shade on the opposite window.

It’s a small detail, but I loved how the designers placed fresh cooking herbs in simple white vases by the stove-top.

Teatime anyone?
