Love at First Sight

The first time I saw him I thought, "Oh, my.  It's too good to be true." But then he turned up again and again, each time better than the last.  I didn't know if he'd be good for me.  I wasn't sure there was a place for him in my life.  So bold. So vibrant.  So self-assured.  

But the more I got to know him, I realized he didn't always need to be the center of attention.  He could sit quietly (all right, not too quietly) in a corner.  One thing's for sure - I just can't shake him.

If you care anything about decorating, I'm sure that you are aware of Miles Redd's new collection of fabric and wallpaper for Schumacher.  That the product is completely in line with his aesthetic and true to how he lives is not surprise to me.  Authentically is just how Miles does things.  

The product is engaging, but the editorial images have been a delight.  Seems, the whole process was a bit of a party.  "I had a blast working on the collaboration with Schumacher," Miles told me.  "Dara Carponigro, [their creative director] is a design force and we saw eye-to-eye the whole way."

Not completely altruistic, Miles reaped his own rewards. "Personally, I got to make a lot of fabric that I had longed for in the market, which doubled the fun. I suppose I am greedy!" he said.

Still, it's win-win.  There are four or five fabrics I could use right now, including Cubist, pictured top, which I just cannot shake. Pick your favorite here
