Sometimes, when I think I'm going crazy and have gone overboard with color or prints, I look to Miles Redd. His bold, beautiful designs make me feel like everything is right in the world. In this month's House Beautiful he said, "Every color combination there is, nature has done it before me. Truthfully, color makes me happy."
All white rooms are fine for someone else, but not for me. (See what I did there? I referenced my girl Amy's advice from yesterday). If you haven't gotten a chance to pick up the November issue of House Beautiful yet, hop to it! It also featured this bachelor pad and while I try not to regurgitate content from magazine's here, but both of these spaces deserve to be shared.
So, let's discuss...
Modern artwork looks amazing on top of more traditional wallpaper. And that green leather chair? It's from Ikea (custom covered of course).
Bold wallpaper camouflages the closet doors.
This lacquered green library is a jewel box. Every house that's big enough (I won't put this pressure on a studio apartment) should have a small room with bold colored walls.
One of the best parts about this apartment was that Miles had already decorated their previous home. When they decided to move he used most of the furniture in new ways. I would love to see the old place next to this one.
