House Tour | Miles Redd From Day To Night

Well, my guess is that this is not your first time to have a peek through the fabulous Mr. Miles Redd's NY Townhouse. However, when I came across some newer photos that I hadn't seen before, I decided to put a bit of a spin on this house tour and show you some of my favorite shots of his home both during the day and at night.

We equate Miles' signature style with glamour, something out of a Great Gatsby-like novel, definitely always referencing the past - perhaps New York City in the roaring 1930's. I would suggest his home truly sings in the evening, the glamour-factor is out in full force. I found images of almost every room in his home in an after dusk glow. Starting off in the dining room:

You can see in the image below that Miles applied a strip of mirror along the ceiling to up the glamour:

But then you see the strips of mirror on the ceiling during the evening glow, when the light dances and reflects off of every shiny surface, and it's quite magical. Day time almost can't compare!

Both the powder room and kitchen have purposefully been decorated in a dark scheme, which just looks fantastic at night, and I think the look is such a success because of the mirrored surfaces and the shiny black lacquer in the case of the kitchen.

I love seeing that Miles has the lamps ON in some of his interior shots - this is often a big no-no in interior photography and there will be a few of you that definitely disagree with me on this one. I just like the soft glow and the indication that someone actually LIVES here. And it's luxurious, especially when the glow bounces off lacquered walls or cabinetry like we see here:

I love these little peeks at the stair well gallery wall at night, looking into that famous red library:

Now who wouldn't want to curl up and read here?

This bedroom looks like the epitome of luxury; the chinoiserie wallcovering, silk drapes, the artwork, and the fringed lampshades:

But even more so at night with those lampshades aglow:

This last one is my favorite, Miles' imfamous bathroom and adjoining mirrored dressing room.

On one occasion, when an outdoor soiree was to be held and rain happened to disrupt the plans - Miles simply moved the party indoors - into his dressing room, of course. The mirrors just look magical with the candlelight, I don't think any one would pay attention to the bath tub just off in the distance:

And there you have it! A few new images and a fun comparison of a spectacular home during the day and at night. Truthfully I hope we start to get to see more designers homes at night, and even if it's not suited to a magazine format, I hope we'll at least see more of it through social media. I think it gives us a better glance at how people truly live, rather that the bright white and perfectly styled shots we are so used to seeing.
