Designer Miles Redd "Turns a Sow’s Ear Into a Silk Purse"

Above, the dining room, which boasts reupholstered chairs from Doris Duke's estate sale: "The most dramatic result came when Redd overhauled the existing 'iced-tea-colored' wood floorboards with a more glamorous paint job—a marbleized geometric pattern of black, white, and gray. Throughout the six-month project, Redd says, 'I just kept thinking of Fred Astaire in Top Hat.'"
