Miles and Miles and Miles of Style: Giveaway

We’re Jumping Up and Down!

Can you guess where we’re going with thispost?  Just in case you haven’t heard, the very talented and debonair Miles Redd is coming to the Stamford’s Antique and Artisan Center tonight for a book signing and we’re beyond excited to meet him!

Chic and Classy

Making an Entrance

Known for his glamorous yet cozy interiors, Miles has been on his own since 1998 after learning about antiques and interior design from John Rosselli and Bunny Williams and trying his hand at painting in Lacoste, France.

Confidence in the Kitchen

We’re looking forward to pouring over Miles’ new book, The Big Book of Chic, which is filled with a broad range his eclectic interiors and is sure please.  How can you not love someone who doles out entertaining advice like “Have a stiff drink before anyone arrives.  If you’re having fun, everyone will have fun” or decorating advice like “Buy the best and you only cry once!”

    Well it is no secret that I have had a long term love for the work of Miles Redd. I just know that he dreams in color! Can’t wait to see the book!
    Thank you for sharing.
    Happy Wednesday.

    Miles Redd is amazing! I’ve always been a fan…not just because he shares his name with a certain legendary jazz musician (even spelled the same) or with my very cool 12 year old nephew (spelled with a y) but obviously because of his talent. And, yeah…I’d love to have his book! xoxo

    Just hearing his name gets me excited about design! He is, without a doubt, one of my very favorite interior designers. I immediately think of a gorgeous home he did in Atlanta with a blue lacquered bar and zodiac hanging light fixture.

    Have fun…wish I could go!!

    Oh what fun! Miles Redd is one of my favorites – how can you not like a guy who dishes out the “have a stiff drink” advice? Have a stylish time tonight! XO

    Love Miles Redd!! His phrase, “Buy the best and you only cry once!”, I can apply that a couple of times! Love and admire his talent.
