Miles Redd’s signature style offers a melange of high and low with rich jewel tones and bold graphics to create sophisticated-yet-cozy spaces.

There are many notable interior designers creating gorgeous spaces, but very few have a style as iconic as Miles Redd. After honing his skills under the tutelage of antiques dealer John Rosselli and interior decorator Bunny Williams, Redd launched his own design firm in 1998 in New York City, and has been making his own statement ever since. Next Monday, attendees of the RISD Museum Associates Annual Fundraiser will get to hear him speak in person at A Colorful Day with Miles Redd. In other words, get yourself to Providence, stat.

Redd is known for his sophisticated style with a unique twist. Mirrors, lacquer, and bold wallpapers are just a few of his signature wall treatments. He has a knack for creating incredibly chic spaces that are also inviting and cozy, mixing high-gloss and rich textures in jewel tones then topping it all off with layers of eclectic accessories. Few designers think outside the box in the way he does, and that’s what has landed him on Architectural Digest’s AD 100 list of industry trailblazers for the past three years in a row.

It’s a great privilege to have the chance to see and hear the man in person. Redd will be on hand to present his portfolio, discuss his inspiration, and sign copies of his tome, The Big Book of Chic. Following the lecture will be a gala luncheon with the designer. On the menu? A plate of design with a side of inspiration, we assume.
