A Colorful Upper West Side Apartment by Jamie Drake
from Architectural Digest
Jamie Drake is all about color. The interior designer's work has many facets, but curious minds mostly want to grill him about his frisky palettes. What's the secret behind pairing lavender and orange so artfully? How can a prissy pink look so masculine? The Manhattan, N.Y.-based tastemaker is synonymous with punchy, saturated hues: audacious yellows, luminous blues, reds so fiery they might burst into flame. Even when renovating a historic property, such as Gracie Mansion, the New York City mayoral residence, Drake doesn't shy away from caffeinated shades. "I love all my colors!" he says with evangelical exuberance. "The trick is using them for maximum impact."
