Pineapple Hill, the 5,500-square-foot residence located in the exclusive Lyford Cay club, is just 10 years old. But it was covered in beige and grass cloth and furnished in traditional plantation style... and Redd had decided to recast the house along more colorful, theatrical lines, as only Miles Redd can do.
“I envisioned it as part Babe Paley and part Auntie Mame, with a dash of Texas brio and a splash of daiquiri,” Redd proclaimed to Architectural Digest. “The vibe nods to Serge Roche, Emilio Terry, John Dickinson, and Syrie Maugham,” he said.
That is my kind of house... Let's take a little sneak peek inside!
The living room walls and ceiling are covered in a China Seas fabric, with curtains to match; the sofa is by Oscar de la Renta Home for Century Furniture, the antique slipper chair is clad in a blue Global Leathers hide, the floor lamps are by Ralph Lauren Home, and the white garden seat is by Williams-Sonoma Home.
In the octagonal entry hall, a chandelier by Antonson is suspended from a ceiling clad in alternating fabrics by Duralee (white) and Perennials (blue). Timothy Oulton mirrors from ABC Carpet & Home are installed atop wallpaper by Fromental, while sofas covered in a China Seas fabric are accented by pillows in Scalamandré (blue) and Clarence House (white) silks. The cocktail tables are by Oly; the compass on the floor was painted by decorative artist Chris Pearson.
The existing grass-cloth wall covering in the television room was stenciled over by Pearson and hung with art, including parrot illustrations from Natural Curiosities; the Dune sectional is clad in an Osborne & Little fabric.
