If you remember, this is not the first time I write about this awesome book. The Big Book of Chic is the new decorative bible from the famous international interior designer Miles Redd. A very inspiring book, filled with innovative ideas that allows the reader to see the world through the eyes of the talented Redd and completely understand his creative vision.
He showcases some of his fabulous projects as well as the images that fuel his imagination drives him. It’s 300 pages long with 150 full-page illustrations, giving readers a glimpse into what inspires Miles and provides intimate portraits of a beautiful, sophisticated life.
The illustrated volume features, not only black and white, but also a selection of colored images of rooms decorated by Miles Redd. Besides, one can find what Redd finds stylish “top hat fantasies” by Scott Fitzgerald, Diana Vreeland, Coco Chanel, Marcel Proust, Cecil Beaton and many other significant personalities of the 19th and 20th centuries.
He uses art to change the emphasis of a room, hanging contemporary paintings to add punch to traditional decorating, and introducing traditional art into contemporary interiors for an extra layer of richness. Fashion is a great influence. The ever-stylish Redd is influenced by photographers like Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and illustrator René Gruau.
In this book, Miles lets us in on his colorful, glamorous and, above all, chic world. His trademark approach to design has brought to life rooms infused with boldness, fantasy, and sophistication.
This lavishly illustrated volume features a diverse selection of his unique interiors, an inspiration to anyone interested in spirited, eclectic design.
