This Miles Redd bedroom is grounded by dramatic touches like crisp black lampshades and framed drapes. The sheen of low, mother-of-pearl side tables is offset by a fur bedspread. "Balancing texture was something Bunny (Williams) taught me: You can't have lacquer next to lacquer. You have to juxtapose shiny with rough, graphic with organic."

Bunny Williams' bedroom: Mismatched bedside tables make for a less "decorator-y" look; tall lamps cast light at just the right height for reading in bed. "I love bright modern prints, but tend to use them sparingly since you tire of them. I do neutral—never white-on-white—rooms." Ms. Williams upholstered the headboard in an Indian-inspired silsilk embroidery by Naeem Khan. "I like fabrics to look natural, whether a cotton or a silk or a good imitation"—a bias rooted in her Parish-Hadley days.
Dinette - Casual dining with vibrant palette, large piece of art, patterned wall covering plus brilliant choice of chandelier and dining suite. The style is fun, highly original and impressive. (repinned photo only from Miles Redd)
The Mentor, Albert Hadley: bedroom for Brooke Astor. Juxtaposing restful hues, pedigreed antiques and modern artwork creates an oasis of calm. Pale-green foliage print on walls and draperies, instills coziness and intimacy in a grandly proportioned space. A multitasking salon: desk, sitting area and scattered armchairs for lounging. In lieu of nightstands is a pair of mismatched tables; swing-arm lamps offer a warm glow. Vibe is dainty yet strong, simultaneously old-world and forward thinking.
