Firstly apologises for lack of consistency last week â it was a pretty crazy one. Hopefully I am Â now back on track and what better way to start the week than yabbering aboutÂ Hollywood Regency done on the cheap.
Yes it is possible andÂ Â the proof as they say is always in the puddingÂ – check out the West Village home of art curator David Kaiser. With the help of interior designer Miles Redd they have to quote âturned a sowâs ear into a silk purseâ. The trick is thinking out of the box â scouting out flea market finds and then respraying re working and reupholstering.Â In so doing they have created a utterly unique space with some trail blazing shots of colour, texture and a highly personal collection of art.
This room has what Redd calls comic book glamour and whilst itâs not totally my cup of tea itâs an exciting space. If you are worried about using bold blasts of colour then take inspiration from this pad â how fabulous do the doors look painted out in high voltage hues.
Decorating with panache the blue chest is the star of the show, glamorous without being over the top it gives a classic yet fashion forward feel. When it comes to decorating there are no rules follow your heart, experiment a little and before you know it you will be propelling your pad into the design pages of glossy magazines.
