Miles Redd's Beach House Project Offers A Dramatic Take On Bahamas Living (PHOTOS)

We've seen a lot of beach houses lately. (It is summer after all.) But none can quite compare to designer Miles Redd's tropical Bahamas getaway project featured in Architectural Digest's August issue.

In just ten months, Redd transformed one family's vacation home from dull to whoa. The house was originally covered in a beige palette and grass cloth -- two things we all know don't really go with Redd's extravagant style. So, he added drama to the 5,500-square-foot space with tented ceilings, cerulean-painted floors and a completely wild and different wallpaper design for each room. “The vibe nods to Serge Roche, Emilio Terry, John Dickinson, and Syrie Maugham,” Redd told the magazine.

And while this is definitely not a typical beach home, Redd used traditional blues, greens and whites to create his own spin on coastal living.

Scroll through the photos to see this stunner, and be sure to head over to Architectural Digest for more information.
