“word to the wise” wednesday: miles redd

If you focus too much on being functional, the room can become boring and stiff.

Miles Redd (Veranda, July/August 2012)

Isn’t this just soooo true?  After all, day care centers are functional … but who wants their home to look like a romper room?  Not that day care centers are romper rooms, but you get what I’m saying.

I love creating chic, sophisticated interiors that withstand the rigors of family life.  I can’t count the number of times people have said in reference to my own home — “Are you sure twin boys live here?”   Yes, yes, I am.  Just wait until one of them comes running around the corner with a Nerf gun in hand.  Functional, yes.  Boring and stiff, no way!

    Swoon, swoon, swoon! Absolutely stunning bath. Seriously, Traci. Does it get any better than Miles Redd and Gil Schafer? That's what I call a Dynamic Duo....
