Graphicness.


I am going to ignore that he says "graphicness" and just focus on how much I love his overthetopness in this video HERE.

Sorry, you have to sit through a 10 second ad first.

Favorite part is when they cut to him squirting Windex onto his kitchen counters. Just makes me laugh.

I love Miles Redd.

I have Always wanted to work for Miles. I had no idea that he has a drawl though. I'm not quite sure if the accent is real. Miles if you ever read this don't remember my name when I apply to intern with you!!

haha at "i'm more of a magpie..." as in he knows exactly what bird he would be, lookin at shiny shiny.

OMG I've never seen him 'live'. I love him more than ever. He's got it going on. I heard through a good source that he just finished a gazillion dollar remodel and went OVER THE TOP. Like, custom leather baseball mitt chair for the little boys room...
Shocker. If only he were the neighbor I've always wanted. We could stay up late at night discussing bamboo shades, that infuriating Imperial Trellis, ashtrays as art, black lampshades, leggy living rooms... Everything my husband snores at... Sigh...

Truffles - where have you been all my life.

This is why we need gay husbands.

Ashtrays! Yes.

I notice on eBay that sellers are too embarrassed to call them what they are. Now they just say "art glass bowls" and try to pretend there are no cig notches.

Is Miles Redd independently wealthy or what? I read somewhere that the knobs on those zebra doors are cast in real silver & I would assume that David Adler bathroom must have set him back a couple hundred K. I mean, wow, I know he is huge in the design world but really how does he afford all that stuff?

He's a hoot! Very charming. Especially the pink room. His color sense is one of the best.

I was surprised by the accent too but it sounds authentic. Who's he kidding, he's vain as heck and it's fantastic. I too wondered how he affords the extreme opulence. Many wealthy clients I suppose.

MIles' voice makes me want to jump his anachronistic bones.

Choose wisely ladies, I have a gay husband and he won't discuss any of those things.

I just looked around and counted, out of 10 lamps here 7 of them have black shades. No wonder I'm always turning on more lights.

That doesn't sound at all like Miles Redd. It sounds like Ty Pennington.

Leather baseball mitt? I think that it sounds fabulous...for a little boy. I'm having t-shirts made. Miles for President 2012. Ashtrays, too.

Shoot! I can't believe I missed this post! (You are not allowed every again to stop posting this blog! OKAY???

I met Miles Redd when he was (19 or something)....and worked for his uncle John Rosselli!

I am in California...so I asked him to assemble a "catalogue" of stuff from JR......in a notebook! He said...that will be $200.00! I said....fine!

I still have it!

He was "bright-eyed, and bushy-tailed"......and I predicted great things for him.......however ....not as great as he turned out to be!

I am thrilled and proud of his accomplishments!!!

And I still have a treasure the "catalogue" he made for me all those years ago! He is so cool. He was at 19; also.....just so you know!
