“High style in the country cracks me up,” says #AD100 designer @milesredd, who was tapped by a young family to decorate their rural getaway outside of Houston, TX. The homeowner, @baileyquin McCarthy informed him that she wanted her family—her husband, Pete and their two young children—to live in a casual, quirky Wes Anderson film set, and Redd was totally on board. “It ended up just the way she wanted it,” Redd says. “A little bit Anderson, with nods to Texas and a smattering of old lady, and everybody knows I love chic-old-lady style. Basically, it’s a big, happy, fresh, light family house.” As for the bubbly decor, “just because we’re in the country doesn’t mean the rooms have to look country,” Bailey says. “The house doesn’t have to prove itself.” A guest bedroom is thickly hung, indeed practically paneled, with an heirloom collection of arrowheads that are arranged within glossy wood frames. Four-posters, all dressed in @biscuithome wares, are voluptuously curtained. The batik bedroom, pictured here, is covered in a weave by @pieceandco and bedding by @biscuithome. “It’s like everyone enters a fully realized world. My blood pressure drops when I pull in at the end of the drive from Houston,” Bailey continues. She also points out, with a laugh, that her favorite decorator’s effervescent settings have totally changed the way she dresses on weekends: “I used to wear yoga pants all the time; now I wear caftans.” Visit the link in our profile to take a tour of the home.
