Veranda, September 2017 - 7 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Sep 8, 2017 11:18:47 PM

The September 2017 Veranda has so many beautiful interiors it was hard to pick just five so I stretched it to the seven best. These include three stunning rooms by Miles Redd in an updated 1901 Victorian house in New Jersey, a luxurious Park Avenue apartment rendered in pale whites and grays by Thomas Pheasant, a classic Atlanta house updated by architect Yong Park and interior designer Melanie Turner. Finally, architect D. Stanley Dixon and interior designer Carolyn Malone evoke the peacefulness of a rustic English country house in a newly built home in Atlanta. Our focus as always is on the role designer rugs play in adding glamour to these living rooms, dining rooms and bedroom.

1. Pink, Aqua and Gold 

In the dining room of a 1901 Victorian house in New Jersey updated by Miles Redd, a pinkish-red Oushak rug is unexpectedly juxtaposed with aqua contemporary wingback dining chairs and gold Chinoiserie hand painted silk wallcovering. This combination creates a contemporary vibe in a traditional room. 

 
"Its the tension of disparate objects that makes decorating interesting, and you can create that by going from something slick to something rough" - Miles Redd

2. Pink, Aqua and Beige  


in the living room of the 1901 Victorian house Miles Redd creates "tension" by pairing a cream and beige Moroccan style geometric rug with a space age styled mid-century chair covered in a lively pink and aqua floral chintz. Aqua walls and aqua accent pieces complete the exuberant atmosphere.

 

"Juxtaposition: high/low; shiny/matte; refined/crude; grand/humble; modern/ancient. It is the essence of chic." - Miles Redd

3.  Beige, Brown and Blue


In the Miles Redd designed master bedroom a beige and brown Turkestan design Oushak rug provides a rustic contrast to the custom iron canopy bed upholstered in raw silk and leather and a custom ink on paper wallcovering.

 5. Gray, White and Bronze 

 

In the dining room of a luxurious Park Avenue, New York apartment rendered in whites and pale grays by Thomas Pheasant, a gray round rug with tone on tone textured stripes pulls together a round dining table, pale gray dining chairs, jewel like crystal chandelier and lacquered cabinets with cast bronze decorations all designed by Thomas Pheasant. A black painting by French artist Jane Puylagarde pops against églomisé walls while a Delphine Brabant sculpture sits on a custom pedestal.
