Every home needs a respite from consistency, a space signaling that the occupant isn’t quite who you thought. Designer Miles Redd and his partner, David Kaihoi, excel at these unicorn rooms — probably because their grasp on the extraordinary is among the strongest on the decorating scene.

For a 1958 residence in L.A.’s Trousdale Estates, they have crafted a screening room dripping with Orientalist splendor, from the patterned linen-covered walls by Iksel to the antique Venetian mirror and a Persian-patterned box. The boys being who they are, though, they sneak in a few quieter favorites: Christopher Spitzmiller lamps in lapis and a pair of prize Jean-Michel Frank slipper chairs, their original moss-colored leather upholstery harmonizing with the warm palette. It’s all enough of a piece to say, “Cut.”
