{interior designer: miles redd}








. . . most often drawn to bright and airy, spaces, crisp whites and pale and pretty neutrals {here & here}, but every once in a while, something comes along that changes everything and suddently it's deep hues and jewel tones, an intoxicating mix of colours, patterns and textures, and pure and unbridled maximalism -- hervé pierre's paris apartment, david kaihoi's new york flat, hamish bowles' paris apartment -- and now boxwood, an enchanting and wonderfully romantic old 1920's home in altanta filled with fish ponds and gardens, grand columns and archways, french doors and luxurious velvet sofas, elegant monogrammed linens and de gournay . . .

{p.s.} the living room walls are upholstered entirely in turquoise satin

Had me at the 1st pic. Look out the open door, Vanishing Threshold.

The interior space flows into the garden.

How smart are BOXWOODS? Drought tolerant, deer proof..........

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

Love the dressing room, as well as the gorgeous female pieces of artwork (they remind of pieces I have in my daugther's bedroom...one from Beverly Sill's estate sale and another from Hamptons estate sale.) Lovely images. e

Isn't it funny how one space (or outfit, for that matter) can make you question or tweak your sense of style? I loved this story. The master bathroom is my favorite!

I envy those who draw so well and who could make amazing sketches and illustrations like those mounted on the wall.

It's very beautiful.
